EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF A BIOLUMINESCENT CLEAR KAYAK TOUR


Are you ready to Get Up and GLOW?! Our bioluminescent tours are given in our amazing 100% clear kayaks! We only bring groups of up to 14 people out on the water at a time so be ready for an awesome personalized experience with our top notch guides. We have 2 tour guides per group which makes for an even better experience! We believe that giving the information about the bioluminescence and surrounding areas in a fun and caring way will leave a lasting effect to all guests!

Bioluminescence is the emission of light by a living organism. When the organisms move in the water they create a beautiful glowing effect. This means that you can see fish underwater by the glow that they give off as they swim, your paddle will glow as you maneuver the waterways, and the natural flow of water will illuminate these organisms. We often see dolphins, manatees, rays, and so much more ignite the bioluminescence at night as well!

We’re the first clear kayaking bioluminescent company and proud of it! The great thing about paddling in our clear kayaks in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is that you can also see the glowing directly below you! Paddling in a clear kayak will enhance your bioluminescence viewing experience by a long shot!

Please keep in mind that we do offer tours at midnight and later. If you book a time that late, it may look like it is on the next day because of the time. Please double check all dates/times!

As we are Florida’s premier clear kayaking bioluminescent destination, we’ve got the BEST Bioluminescent Tours in Florida as our clear kayaks provide the absolute best ability to view the bioluminescence!

CHOOSING THE RIGHT NIGHT FOR A BIOLUMINESCENT TOUR:

CHOOSING THE RIGHT NIGHT FOR A BIOLUMINESCENT TOUR:

MOON PHASE

When planning a bioluminescence kayak tour in Florida, take a look at the moon phase calendar. The visibility of bioluminescence can be impacted by the brightness of the moon, as a brighter moon may make it more challenging for viewing due to the moonlight’s reflection on the water surface. For optimal viewing and maximum brilliance of bioluminescence, it’s best to select a time when the sky is completely dark.

TIME OF YEAR

Keep in mind that dinoflagellate bioluminescence is typically in Florida occurs between May and October with July & August as peak season. The warmer the water, the brighter the bio! Check out our calendar to book your ideal night!

VIP BIOLUMINESCENT CLEAR KAYAKING EXPERIENCE

Dollar From $1,000 Users Ages 3+ Clock 3 Hours Map Marker Titusville

Our top-of-the-line bioluminescent experience!

What makes it so special?

RAD CONTENT: We will film your epic experience, edit the video and send it to you afterward! Boom! Surely, you will be the envy of all your friends.

VIP STATUS: This customized paddle is a private experience in our clear kayaks and limited to only two guests. That means, one-on-one time with any marine animals that swing by!

EXTENDED LENGTH: This tour lasts up to three hours (1.5 hours longer than our public tour).

MORE PLAY TIME: Stop along the tour, get out of the kayak and play with the sparkling water along a hidden cove. Sky’s the limit here: Use a net to create swirls around you, splash around, see the neon blue dots roll off your skin…just to name a few.

PADDLE WITH THE FOUNDER: Justin Buzzi is a legend in these parts. As the founder of Get Up And Go Kayaking and a native Floridian, he’s spent a gazillion hours out on the water. After six-plus years filming the bioluminescence and providing tours, he’s figured out how to successfully capture the content. Not an easy task! Low light combined with movement of paddling and being on a kayak make it nearly impossible unless you have super fancy camera gear. (Check out the video).

EXTREMELY LIMITED: These private tours are only offered on 6 select nights during the bioluminescent season.

PRO CAMERA EQUIPMENT: the experience will be filmed on Sony A7Siii and high end lenses to capture the bio at its brightest.

This is the only opportunity to capture a bioluminescence experience on video anywhere in the world (that we’ve found)! Please book ahead to secure your spot on this one-of-a-kind experience.
