Very cool experience! Would definitely recommend to everyone
Fascinating spectacle made by nature!
I loved this trip! It was surreal to see the glowing water, and the guide Justin was knowledgeable. The group was a little large (around 18 people), but we still didn't have any issues! Overall worth the money!
Thanks! To our Tour guides Justin & Emmerson ,very proffesional and personable they seem to Love what they do.They provided neon green sticks so they can keep an eye on our group of about 18 from the front and back of the tour.Safety, it is dark out. Before going out I suggest you sit in the Kyak you plan to use and adjust the seating for your comfort. The weather was in our favor that August evening,cloudy which covered the crescent moon that made the neon colored water more visible. We were able to ask questions, and they were very glad to answer. My husband and I had an encounter with a curious Manatee so close that we took on some water in our kyak ,so for sure wear something that you can get wet. The mullet fish when disturbed was awesome, streaks of neon everywhere under the water. The bugs were not biting ,the water and wind were warm.Our timing was perfect that night. MOTHER NATURE IS AMAZING!!!! GO Paddle Dont forget to tip your guides :)
One of a kind experience of Bioluminescence in Florida. Expert, safe, knowledgeable, passionate guides.
Justin was great - Thank you for the great experience
We went as a party of 8 and absolutely loved this adventure. The guides were excellent and the whole experience first class. T
I love this tour and I will take it again.
Loved it! Guides were great...experience was amazing....
It was perfect!! Everyone involved was wonderful, from calling in and getting details to the actual adventure, everyone was courteous and professional. I felt safe during the trip, even though I dumped myself. The guides were immediately there getting me back into my kayak. I need to work on slowing down while turning I guess. But the trip made me realize that I so enjoy kayaking that I will be taking it up as a hobby. The bioluminescence was amazing. Never before have I ever seen anything like it!! Beautiful and mystical!!! I am so thankful that this company was referred to me, I would definitely use them again every chance I get!! thanx so much for an amazing adventure!!
The Bioluminescence Paddle exceeded all of our expectations. A special shout out to Justin - you were a wonderful guide. We've all decided to make it an annual event. See ya next year!
Would highly recommend this to anyone who isn't terrified of being on a small boat at night...cuz that's where you are. But if that doesn't bother you, it's one of the most amazing sights I've ever seen. And pictures will do it no justice. You have to see it! Tour guide was super friendly too, kept everyone together despite different skill levels.
Justin was very knowledgeable and the bioluminescence was clearly visible which was great, but finding the launch site was quite difficult at 11pm. Justin had given great directions, but it was just so dark it was near impossible to see the sign he had described or even the u-turn he mentioned. Also, all three of us were hoping for sit-in kayaks especially since we were asked which style (sit-in or sit-on) we wanted upon our arrival, but when we went to get in the water there were several sit-ons and only one sit-in. It was a bit disappointing when there was only one sit-in. Although it was nice it wasn't worth the cost.
We had a wonderful experience. It was very organized and the guides were very helpful with information and attentive to keep everyone safe.
The length of the trip was perfect and the sites we saw were amazing! Our tour guide Justin made our paddle an adventure! We loved kayaking and loved the "blue lightning" and the bioluminescence! We would definitely recommend to friends and family and would love to go again ourselves!
it was such a great experience!!! Everything lit up so bright, it was so much better than what I was expecting. We had a group of 14 with 4 young kids. We were a little inexperience in kayaking and Greg was very patient with us. He was a great guide!!
Justin is a great guide and the activity was very enjoyable
It was my very first time going for Bioluminescence Kayaking. It was the best experience for myself and 3 other friends. Weather was perfect to be out in waters and sky was full of stars! Both Greg and Justin as amazing and super awesome people to talk to and have fun kayaking! Justin explains everything clearly and give us clear instructions about kayaking before and while we were on the river! It was like shooting stars in water when the fishes were swimming away from our Kayak. And we did everything in water to make it all glow up! It was amazing night and definitely going there again with other group of friends!
Guide was very good, bioluminescence was exciting but the location was on either side of a noisy highway out to Cocoa Beach. Would have enjoyed a more peaceful setting more. Perhaps the 11 pm tour would have been quieter.
You need to experience it! It is hard to describe with words, even the phone will not pick up "the glow", which makes it more special. So, you can leave your phones/cameras behind and just enjoy! Absolutely amazing and unreal, makes you feel like you are in the dream! Highly recommend!
Very knowledgeable guides, we had a great thank you for showing us around.
I loved this tour and thought the guides, kayaks, and other supplies provided were great. My only complaint, and why I gave the lower rating, was due to the difficulty of finding the location as our group got lost and had to drive around before finally arriving. The meeting/parking area was down a bumpy dirt road with no lights, which is unsafe, and our car got stuck in the sand while attempting to park.
The tour, tour guides and experience was amazing. People arriving late in our group caused us to leave a half an hour late was a bummer. We were to arrive at 820 not 9:00, next time have them wait for the 11:00 trip. No fault of yours, we would use you again. Thanks for a great time
Jeff was a wonderful guide. He made sure we had a safe paddle, and shared lots of knowledge too.
Everything was perfect! Nice family outing with no phones. Jeff was an awesome tour guide. Saw dolphins, an alligator and a manatee. Water glowed. Definitely worth the money.
The guide, Jeff, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure he knew everyone's name before we left the shore, coming to each group and naming everyone. Once we were out on the water, Jeff made it clear where we were going and how we were getting there. He explained the reason for the bioluminescence and why the fish would scatter every where. On top of all of this, he was very funny and had some great stories to tell.
Jeff and Jason were awesome tour guides! They made the whole experience more fun :) I am going recommend your tours to my family and friends :)
The bio was amazing and Jeff was an awesome guide! I will definitely be back during a new moon.
Very unique and amazing experience, Justin was very accommodating, will come back again.
