Bioluminescence Tours

Dinoflagellate Bioluminescence Tour
In the warm and dark lagoon waters on the Space Coast of Florida lies a natural phenomenon of glowing blue waters alive with activity called bioluminescence. The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke, the darting trails of nearby fish swimming, the torpedo-like aura of a dolphin swimming by all spark the blue that many compare to the "Avatar" or "Life of Pi" movies, and some even recall "those Gatorade commercials" as the gentle plankton leave a trickling glow when holding it in your hands. Being on a wildlife refuge, other wildlife often makes appearances as well! Frequent visitors include manatees, dolphins, herons, other endangered species of birds, and even the occasional gator. Escape with us to the most pure and otherworldly experience that natural Florida has to offer. Don't just take our word for it, hear what others had to say about our magical bioluminescent tours when they came out with us.

Kayaking is one of the most up-close and personal ways to experience dinoflagellate bioluminescence (dino bio). And with the invent of clear-bottom kayaks, the experience is more immersive than ever! Now you can observe not only the blue swirls off of your paddle, but rushing under your very feet. Every movement below you is illuminated in glowing hues: The momentum of the kayak gives the appearance millions of shooting stars soaring under you, and fish darting under you are like underwater fireworks. And if you’re lucky, you may even see a dolphin or manatee glide gracefully under you. Some describe the dino bio as the enchanting twirl of fairy dust, others like the hovering orbs of Pandora. When nature is stranger than fiction, there is nothing more awe-inspiring. You don’t have to buy manufactured magic of Orlando, or book a flight to Puerto Rico. The safest yet most enchanting bioluminescent bay experience nature has to offer now envelopes you like never before, no wishing required.

What Is Bioluminescence?

Bioluminescence is nature's enchanting light show, orchestrated by living organisms, such as plankton, jellyfish, and algae. When these tiny organisms are disturbed, they emit a magical glow, illuminating the water with blue, green, and turquoise hues. It's a phenomenon that sparks wonder and awe, reminiscent of scenes from a fairy tale. Unlike its rarity on land, bioluminescence thrives in the pelagic zone of the ocean, where 80% of creatures dwelling between depths of 200 to 1,000 meters exhibit this luminous trait.
