If you've ever gone kayaking in Florida before, you know just how beautiful our waterways are during the day time; but did you know that going at night time is also uniquely beautiful? You can paddle in a clear kayak in Florida while the water illuminates beneath you - glowing, glowing, we're going.
When we talk about glow, you probably think about the moon reflecting off of the water or hear the distinct cracking of a fresh glowstick - in this case, dinoflagellate bioluminescence causes the water to light up in an electric glowing blue hue that is truly captivating to see.
Normally when you have bioluminescence tours, you'd only be able to see the glow when you paddle - with the creation of clear kayaks, it makes this experience immersive and even more beautiful. The water will hug your clear kayak on all sides, so you'll see the water light up not only as you paddle but as you float across the water.
A Day Away Kayak Tours in Titusville Florida offers this unique clear kayak bioluminescence experience for only $60 per person. For groups of 12, they offer a 10% discount off the entire cost or 15% off for a group of 20 or more. In total, you spend about an hour and a half to 2 hours on the water, paddling across nearly 3 miles of distance round trip, the water beneath you lighting up like a sea of blue fire.
According to their website, all you'll need to bring for your tour is a change of clothes, towels, your shoes, your swimsuit (if preferred), some bug spray, maybe some snacks - and yourself of course.
The clear kayak experience is only 1 of many great options that A Day Away offers; Their website also shows the option for longer kayak tours, a sunset paddle tour, a moonlit tour, manatee encounters, or even their Comb Jelly Tour - which also offers glowy views and is currently shown as in-season with various different price points.
For your day away and the most lit kayak trip of a lifetime, A Day Away Kayak Tours is located at 1390 Old Dixie Hwy, Titusville, FL 32796.
