My mom and I went on the night kayaking tour with the bioluminescent jellies, and it was a completely unforgettable experience. The guides were informative and helpful, the lake was peaceful and beautiful, and the jellies were simply amazing. It's a tour I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience a unique and moving natural phenomenon.

My daughter bought me this trip for my birthday. It was fantastic! We got to see bioluminescent cone jelly fish PLUS the "dino" bioluminescent critters (way out of season). Heard dolphin nearby, saw shooting stars, glorious night, GREAT crew. Fantastic trip.

My wife and I did the nighttime bioluminescence kayak tour in Mosquito Lagoon. Getting there was not hard when we followed the directions from the tour group. Once we checked in, got our equipment, and went in the kayak, it was all fun from there. This tour was really great, so great that we want to take the tour again... More

We did the night time bio tour. Our guides, Kaylee and Duncan did a great job getting us on the water and then experiencing the bioluminescence. Truly amazing. We loved it and will do it again

We did the nighttime kayak tour in Nov and really enjoyed it. It was a totally different way to appreciate Merrit Island/Canaveal Seashore which was really cool. We saw tons of comb jellyfish in the water, got some time on our own during the tour to paddle around, and got to hold the jellys which was cool! I'd definitely recommend... More

I went at the beginning of November. We saw just the tiniest Bit of jelly fish when our experienced tour guides catched and showed them to ous. However beeing out on the water in the Night was a very peaceful experience I wouldn't want to miss.

The dolphin and manatee tour was excellent. My husband and I went on the tour on our latest visit to Orlando in October 2016. We have been on kayak tours similar to this (with other companies) previously and the only wildlife we have seen is birds. However, on our 'A day away kayak tour' straight away we saw dolphins playing... More

You will not regret taking the bioluminescence night tour. It is not scary at night. It is magnificent and peaceful! It is like something straight out of the Life of Pi movie; absolutely breathtaking. Pictures cannot do this phenomenon justice. You have to see it for yourself. The guides (Brian and Molly) are fantastic and who wouldn't want to go... More
