Bioluminescent kayak tours

Did you know little ol’ Titusville, FL is unique to only 5 locations in the world for a very specific phenomenon? The crazy bioluminescence fires up in early fall and it is a must do on the Space Coast.

The launch site is back in the sticks once you cross over the Max Brewer Bridge down a single dirt road. I’ve been three times so far and we typically choose the tour just after sunset.

The waters are calm deep in the channel, while dolphins frequently surprise guests by sliding in between kayaks along their journey. I highly recommend choosing a guide that uses clear kayaks, as the experience is heightened when you can see through at every angle.

The glow of the plankton come to life as darkness creeps in. Every paddle strike causes a ripple of color to ease across the river. It is a truly magnificent sight. The light of the moon guides the group downstream for a very relaxing experience right in our own backyard.

But eventually, it is time to turn around and make the tougher trek upstream to our original extraction point. A one of a kind trip that you won’t be disappointed with. And we typically cap it off with some local froyo! (because why not)

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
