Awesome kayaking after dark!
, Dec 2021
Brea was an excellent tour guide giving our small group plenty of opportunities to see the bioluminescent comb jellyfish. She is very knowledgeable so you will learn a lot about the area. We also saw some dolphins in the moonlight and could hear the manatees come up for air. It is a great trip!
Bioluminescence Kayaking was AWESOME!

Getting to see the bioluminescence and the peacefulness of kayaking at night under the stars. Our guide Seven did a really nice job of sharing information about the location and the wildlife within it.
Nice but disappointing
, Apr 2021
Was a beautiful night but the bioluminescence was disappointing Also at times can be stressful if you’re not a experienced kayaker because you are bunched up with other kayakers and you might run into them.
Shine Bright Like Plankton

The entire trip exceeded expectations. The location, environment, guides, and overall experience could not have been better. A must see if in this area!
Fun Time

Overall good time learning about the wildlife refuge. Only negativity was that our trip was a bit crowded and caused for a lot of bumping with other boats on the path
