What's Included

The basics behind your Bioluminescence adventure

The Gear

Paddleboards and kayaks are available for this tour. All your paddle gear, including lifejackets, is included. Everyone on the tour will also be equipped with safety lights.

The Guide

Your guide is there to see everything goes smoothly. We’ll go through the basics before getting on the water, and be by your side for the duration of the tour. You'll also get some fun facts about the biology of bioluminescence.

The Light Show

Nature does the entertaining out here. When the water is disturbed, single cell organisms naturally flash neon-blue light. We'll paddle directly into schools of mullet to see the crazy light show they create as they run away through the flats.
