What is bioluminescence?

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is a rarely seen light show put on by plankton beneath the water's surface. As the water is disturbed, the plankton light up and put on a spectacular show!

What equipment is provided?

You will have your choice of a single kayak, tandem kayak or canoe. Please specify your preference at the time of booking. You will also be provided with life jackets, paddles, headlamps, glow sticks and all other equipment needed. Drinking water will be provided. 

What should I bring?

It can get chilly on the water so a jacket or cap is recommended if the weather requires. The tour runs rain or shine so waterproof jackets are helpful in the case of rain. All other equipment for the adventure is provided, including drinking water.

Are children welcome on the tour?

Absolutely! Children ages 6 and up are welcome, but they must know how to swim in the case of emergency. Small children will be paired with their adult chaperone in a tandem kayak.

Are there any weight restrictions?

No, but please let us know at the time of booking if you weigh more than 225 pounds so arrangements can be made for an appropriately sized vessel.

We enjoyed this very much! I recommend the tandem kayaks if you are with someone! We enjoyed our guide and the night was clear so you got to see stars and the fish jumping in the bioluminescent water!

Excellent tour and guides!
I had requested a bioluminescence tour in Titusville, but was given a tour at Port Canaveral. There were so many lights the bioluminescence was difficult to see. Not a good place to tour in my opinion. I felt disappointed and waste of money
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Carol, Thank you for sharing your review with us. I am very sorry to hear that our location was not correct and that you were moved to a different location. I am glad you were still able to get out on this experience despite it not being what you quite expected. I appreciate you sharing your feedback with us on the location as our partners always want to ensure you are able to see the most bioluminescent on this adventure. I understand this experience was not as you expected, but I do hope we have the chance to get you out on another experience in the future! Regards, Brooke
Our guide guy was really really good. Very passionate about the ecology and facts about the plankton period I felt very safe in the kayak and overall a really really good time.
Great guides and beautiful experience.
