Bioluminescence kayaking - The experience was fantastic. We saw horseshoe crabs (one laying her eggs), several variety of stingrays, a baby conch, a sea walnut, fish and even a baby shark-all in the dark! Logan, our guide was excellent and so knowledgeable! We highly recommend this experience.

BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS - My daughter and I went on a 10:30pm kayaking bioluminescent excursion. Our guide was Noah. The 1 1/2 hour adventure went far beyond my original expectations. Noah was a terrific guide/host. My being the 80 years young that I am , was grateful for the little bits of help and suggestions from Noah. He was aware and respectfully attentive every moment of our trip. Everyone in our party felt secure and comfortable. Noah made it his business to come over beside our kayak and explain everything that we were seeing. Never will there be an adventure in God’s nature world quite like this one. It was a phenomenal addition to our collection of memories. Arlene

Amazing bioluminescent Kayaking experience!! - As someoen who's never kayaked before, I was definitely nervous about this activity but our guide Noah was super helpful! He helped me until I got the hang of it and when my anxieties settled I was able to enjoy the experience so much more! It was incredible to see the night sky lit up with so many stars and then all of the bioluminescence as we kayaked around the island. This experience definitely made me love kayaking and I hope to do it again soon!!

Amazing Adventure - Luminescence Tour Titusville - September 2023 Cocoa Kayaking. Luminescence Tour. Out of Titusville. Easy kayaking @ 20 minutes each way - visit a quaint island. Small hikes to three different beaches. Opportunities to go into the beautiful water. Coupled with great friends and a rocket launch and soothing breeze - it was amazing! Water depth @ four feet the whole way. Highly highly recommend it. Our tour guide made it so educational, interesting, and fun! A must - ask for Logan tour guide extraordinaire:)

Blue magic - My family had an amazing evening. Logan is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He made the experience even more magical. Bring a flashlight to make looking for shells easier. Wear swim gear because you get to make snow angles in the water with the help of the plankton.
