I had wanted separate kayaks but I wrote tandem I didn't understand so yes I worded it wrong but I am a beginner and didn't know how to put we wanted sit on kayaks because that was not an option. Our guide was great and it was fun! Just wish your order form was more clear!
This was my wife's first time in a kayak. We both enjoyed the experience beyond words. A great night for us. I highly recommend this trip.
Awesome experience, great guide.
Awesome experience. Guides were experienced, knowledgeable and very kind.
The only reason I didn't score a 5 was location was very difficult to find I hope you can fond a better way to make your location it was dark out, which made it more difficult, but lawson was terrific, I would still highly recommend you to anyone that's interested just to any future customers be prepared to get there early so you have time to get there, but I would still go myself and my wife, had a very memorable time we were both very glad we hung in there and hunted the place down thanks again
The evening got off to a rocky start because one of the guides had an auto accident that caused a delay, but you rallied well! Our guide, Jeff, was very informative and patient. I had never been in a kayak before and his tutelage made me feel comfortable in my boat. Once on the water, he took the time to answer all of our questions about the bioluminescent jellies we saw, plus questions about the wildlife we didn’t see. Jeff was very knowledgeable and a joy to be around. It was one of the best experiences of my life!
It was an amazing experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable - thank you again Lawson ! This bioluminescence tour is a MUST.
Didn't receive communication about the location until very last minute but this appears to have been due to using a European phone. The tour was described as a couple of hours but we were off the water within 1.5 hours and I just wish it could have lasted longer as it was an absolutely incredible experience!
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.
