Whether this is your first trip to The Sunshine State, or you are a regular visitor, there are probably lots of different things on your ‘to-do- list when vacationing in Florida. Something that you absolutely should make time to do is a Florida Adventure Tour. These remarkable trips are completely unique each and every time thanks to the showstopping unpredictability of the nature that you will witness when you choose a Florida Adventure Tour.
How do you know which one is right for you? To help you make your decision, here are some of our most popular tours and what you can expect from each.
Florida Bioluminescence Kayaking
Florida bioluminescence kayaking consistently holds the #1 spot for kayaking trips in the Orlando, Cocoa Beach area and it is easy to see why. During these 90-minute tours, you will enjoy a smooth, gentle kayak through the Indian river lagoon which will light up with a true phenomenon – bioluminescence. This spectacular light show occurs when your oars disturb the water, causing the dinoflagellates within to glow. Since there is no light pollution out on the water here, you will have a completely uncompromised experience, being able to view the magical bioluminescence below you as well as witnessing the Milky Way Galaxy which will be lit up in the sky above in stunning detail.
Manatee and Dolphin Kayaking
Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with manatees and dolphins? Now you can have the opportunity to witness these majestic creatures in the wild on a Manatee and Dolphin Kayaking tour. Although dolphins are more elusive thanks to their nomadic nature, our tours take you through an area that has been frequented by both dolphins and manatees for decades. During around 80% of the season, manatees are busy mating and it has been known to see as many as 200 at once depending on the time of the season and of course, the behavior of these wonderful animals.
Sunset Kayaking with Bioluminescence
Our very popular sunset bioluminescence kayaking tour takes in an array of wildlife as well as the stunning display of color provided by the dinoflagellates. You can expect to see a selection of birds such as falcons, herons, and pelicans, and it is not uncommon to see other animals such as the Florida bottlenose dolphin, manatee, and even the odd alligator or shark. As you paddle through the warm waters, your oars will disturb the dinoflagellates that will put on a truly unique and breath-taking light display. As with all bioluminescence shows, it is far better to witness them with your eyes than to try and capture images since these tend to be poor quality unless you have professional equipment. Instead, relax and witness one of the greatest phenomena in Florida with your own two eyes.
Bioluminescent Comb Jelly Eco-Tour
Many of the animals on this planet have been around far longer than humans, and comb jellies, also known as Ctenophora, are no exception. One of the oldest lifeforms on earth, these jellyfish also have bioluminescent capabilities that can scare predators away. During our bioluminescent comb jelly tours, you will have the opportunity to safely capture your own comb jelly in a jar so that you can see it more closely. Don’t worry – all comb jellies are then carefully released back into the wild and will not be harmed during this adventure.
