  • Learn about bioluminescence from a guide
  • Watch for fish and maybe even dolphins and manatees in the water
  • Flotation devices provided for your safety

A must go!!

We celebrated my birthday doing the Bioluminescent tour. What a great time! Staff did a good job answering questions and teaching us about the bio process. We saw mullet jump and used small nets to catch bio jellyfish. Would certainly go again!

I don't work there, but I would say yes. They need to be sure they have the right amount of kayaks and it didn't look like there would have been a way to pay if you just show up.
