Description

In the warm and dark lagoon waters lies a natural phenomenon of glowing blue waters alive with activity. The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke, and the rolling wake off of your kayak all sparkle throughout the darkness. Many guests encounter the darting blue tracer trails of nearby fish swimming, describing them as an under-water laser light show. And watch out! Those mullet fish might just hop right into your kayak! Not only do fish leave trails, dolphins look like torpedoes, and manatees a slow and graceful submarine. Many guests compare the experience to Pandora of “Avatar.” Some even recall the bioluminescence scene in “Life of Pi” or “those Gatoradecommercials” as the gentle plankton leave a trickling glow when you hold it in your hands and let it trickle down your arm.

Though some may jokingly blame this on NASA runoff, it is actually the biological response of microscopic algae called a dinoflagellate, which is why we coined the term ”dino bio”. The perfectly natural and harmless concentration of organisms produces light before your very eyes, often existing in millions per liter of water. Your tour will include a ton of information about these rare and exotic creatures with the most experienced guides in the area

Surprised my 13 year old daughter with this kayak tour. She thought we were just kayaking till she saw the glow in the water and was super excited. Also got to see some dolphins up close as we paddled. Tohr was plenty long and the guide was great. Very informative and safe. A little upset that people complained in their reviews about the mosquitos which are bad but the guides gave us repellent which took care of the problem. You cant blame the kayak company for the mosquitos. Just dont forget your repellent and you'll be fine

The kayaking was awesome along with seeing the bioluminescence. We had a great time. One tip, bring lots and lots and lots and lots of bug spray. We brought some but it wasn’t enough.....about got carried off by mosquitoes. Outside of the bugs the guides were awesome and we had a great time.
