This tour far exceeded my expectations. The comb jellies were bright and numerous and there was even a surprising amount of dinoflagyllate activity. Our tour leaders made us feel safe and each one had a real enthusiasm for eco-friendly wildlife tourism. Booking this tour was the best gift I could have given my sister. We had a blast!!!

We went out on a tour with this company in October, when the bioluminescent organisms are making the water look like a giant lava lamp. It was incredible. The guides were extremely kind when we were slow, and made sure that everyone was accounted for at all times. They were very knowledgeable as well. Be sure you don't wear jeans... More

Do not miss this tour. My husband and I booked a private kayak tour and had close up personal times with manatees and porpoises. Thank you Stephanie for a memory filled day. I told her that we could experience rain all week because this experience made our vacation!

I should start this review by saying that I've toured with this company twice, once summer 2016, once winter 2017. Both times I have been matched with experienced and knowledgeable guides who have been helpful, understanding, and amazingly enough able to get the attention of 15-20 people in a lake, river, or lagoon. Both trips I used my time to... More

This was our third trip with A Day Away, and we had a great time. We did a day trip that lasted for 3 hours with Stephanie - who is an excellent guide. She took us to where the manatees were hanging out (we saw probably 15 of them) and to the pelican island. We went at a nice pace... More

We went on a night time comb jelly tour with this group and it was amazing! Our 11 year old son loved the comb jellies the guides showed us. The trip showed the true beauty of real Florida. The guides were amazing

My dad and I went kayaking yesterday with Stephanie as our guide. It was just the three of us, and it was definitely the best day of my life. Manatees have been my favorite animal since I was little, and we got to see them up close. They came right up to our kayaks, and it was seriously incredible. We... More

My boyfriend and I went on a nighttime bioluminescent jelly tour in early December 2016. We were guided by Brian and truly loved the experience! We had booked a bioluminescent jelly tour, but it turned out the bioluminescent Dinoflagellates were still present as well, igniting tiny fireworks in the water every time you dropped your paddle in. The glow-in-the-dark jellyfish... More

My mom and I went on the night kayaking tour with the bioluminescent jellies, and it was a completely unforgettable experience. The guides were informative and helpful, the lake was peaceful and beautiful, and the jellies were simply amazing. It's a tour I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience a unique and moving natural phenomenon.
