In the cooler Florida months, bioluminescent Comb Jellies congregate in the protected waters of the Indian River Lagoon, the most bio-diverse estuary in North America. Comb Jellies are clear, glob-like creatures that, despite their name, cannot sting! Paddle along as your guide takes you through the mangrove and palm-laced shores in search of the best Comb Jellies in the area. Once you discover their unmistakable blue light, you can catch and hold these gentle glowing creatures as their blue light pulsates down their eight rib-like structures. Check out the tour we hosted for our friends at Visit Florida!
In addition to the stars, the myriad of protected wildlife around you, and the Comb Jelly’s bioluminescence, their “ribs” are lined with cilia that they use to propel themselves, so when you cast a flashlight on them just right, they’ll also refract a dynamic rainbow-y light show! We’re the only tour company that lets you net, contain, and observe all of these remarkable Comb Jellies. They’re right at your fingertips while having a safe, awe-inspiring kayak adventure with those who share your enthusiasm for unique experiences.
