Sunset Bioluminescence Tour on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge

Sunset is a magical time on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. There is movement everywhere. Dolphins are rounding up their dinner, manatees are moving into the shallows to find a comfortable spot to spend the night. As the light fades and the sky ignites with dynamics color, “Mullethead Island,” a federally protected rookery, buzzes with activity as many of the refuge’s 358 unique bird species flock above you to their protected nests for the night. Typical species to expect include Ibis, herons, egrets, pelicans, cormorants, and roseate spoonbills, all set to the backdrop of rocket launch pads and iconic NASA landscape. Launch into your escape.

Wyatt our tour guide was excellent! Both guides were helpful and intelligent. The water was beautiful! The sparkle was mesmerizing. So happy I got to see bright bioluminouscence close to the new moon, as well as shooting stars and a brief manatee sighting. The water on this trip was more like individual sparkly diamonds in the water. I want to return for a future trip to see the neon blue color.

WOW, what an experience! This is truly a bucket list item that everyone should put on their agenda. The staff was wonderful, experienced and helpful. At 80 years old, my husband and I were a bit apprehensive taking this tour. It was easy paddling, exciting to partake, and with a little assistance, just enjoyed the trip. Would recommend for everyone!
