The best light show is beneath your totally clear kayak as you are engulfed in millions of lights.
Other kayak styles give you a limited view over the side of the kayak or a small window.
Bioluminescence simply means "living light". Depending on the night and location you may see three types of bioluminescence with the most common being Dinoflagellates.
Dinoflagellates make the water glow every time the water is agitated. You will see "stars" moving underneath your all clear kayak and it will look like your going through the galaxy at warp speed.

Can you hold a reservation? We will not hold any reservations, all reservations are made with a valid credit card. We sell out quickly and all reservations require a credit card.
What happens if I don't show up? If you do not call within 24 hours of your tour you will be charged FULL trip value to the credit card you provided.
Why do you care what I weigh? This is very important for your safety as the kayaks have a weight limit. If you weigh too much the boat will sink.
What if I'm allergic to bug bites? We suggest you not come on the tour then. We do not allow any bug spray as it will kill the organisms we are taking you out to see.
What should I wear? Swimwear is best as you will get wet even if it doesn't rain. If you are sensitive to bugs we suggest long pants and a long sleeved shirt. No footwear of any kind is allowed in the boats.
Can I swim in the bay? No, we don't allow swimming both for your own safety and to protect the organism you are going to see.
Why is there an age limit? This is an adventure tour with a mile paddle in each direction. All customers should be fit and able to paddle. This is not the tour for you if you have bad shoulders or a bad back. Young children cannot help paddle and any younger isn't safe. All children under the age of 13 must have a capable, fit adult in the kayak with them.
What happens if it rains? We do go out in the rain and sudden rain storms have been known to occur. Usually the rain passes quickly and the tour resumes. Rain storms do not affect the bioluminescence.
What can I bring in the kayak? No bags, alcohol or cigarettes are allowed. You may bring a bottle of water as long as it's in a soft plastic bottle.
What happens if I cannot complete the tour? If you are unable to complete the tour you will be towed back to shore and charged FULL trip value. Examples of people who couldn't complete the tour are people who are drunk, not strong enough to complete the one mile tour and people who are too heavy for the kayaks.
