Bioluminescence Tours on the Space Coast

During the summer months the waters of the Indian River, Banana River and Mosquito Lagoon come alive after sunset with Bioluminescence. A speeding school of mullet swimming under your kayak looks like hundreds of green bottle rockets going off underwater. A manatee or stingray moves much slower underwater, giving a ghostly glow to the illumination. Swirl your kayak paddle or drop your hand into the water to create wild patterns of light. Any movement causes tiny dinoflagellates to emit light. Little is known about these under-appreciated creatures, but they are essential to the existence of most marine life. Most tours are 60-90 minutes and are suitable for beginners. Several outfitters guide tours by kayak or stand-up paddleboard on the Rivers or into the Lagoon. The best time to go is at the darkest hours of the night, five days before or after a new moon. “Bioluminawesome!!!,” is how Deborah described her adventure in Trip Advisor.
