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.
Why clear bottom kayaks? Our continued commitment to maintaining safety within our immersive experiences has led us to these technologically advanced kayaks, a finely crafted and mesmerizing new model of kayak. The Innovex material is not glass, but a highly durable plastic composite, like the overhead cock pits of fighter jets. The clear-bottom kayak does not simply lay a window panel under you, but rather a fully-formed inlay of Innovex allows water (and so bioluminescence) to rise around you, preserving the full experience without compromising paddler safety.
