Myself and my girlfriend went on the nighttime comb jelly tour, and it was extremely fun as well as educational. Both of us are wildlife enthusiasts and fairly educated regarding the biomes of Florida, but our guide (Bill) was still able to teach us a few new interesting facts. The tour lasted about 90 minutes and I definitely felt like... More

Went once and had to return the next month. Magical evening kayak tour. Calm, shallow, warm water, tour went at an appropriately leisurely pace to enjoy the setting. Saw intense bioluminescence. Not much hotel selection close by, so next time will try to find a camp site or other option to be able to stay and enjoy this place. Also... More

Not only was the kayaking itself great- very cool sights, great equipment and trip- the staff was really accommodating and flexible and helped me out when I had to cancel a trip and re-book

This tour far exceeded my expectations. The comb jellies were bright and numerous and there was even a surprising amount of dinoflagyllate activity. Our tour leaders made us feel safe and each one had a real enthusiasm for eco-friendly wildlife tourism. Booking this tour was the best gift I could have given my sister. We had a blast!!!

We went out on a tour with this company in October, when the bioluminescent organisms are making the water look like a giant lava lamp. It was incredible. The guides were extremely kind when we were slow, and made sure that everyone was accounted for at all times. They were very knowledgeable as well. Be sure you don't wear jeans... More

Do not miss this tour. My husband and I booked a private kayak tour and had close up personal times with manatees and porpoises. Thank you Stephanie for a memory filled day. I told her that we could experience rain all week because this experience made our vacation!

I should start this review by saying that I've toured with this company twice, once summer 2016, once winter 2017. Both times I have been matched with experienced and knowledgeable guides who have been helpful, understanding, and amazingly enough able to get the attention of 15-20 people in a lake, river, or lagoon. Both trips I used my time to... More

This was our third trip with A Day Away, and we had a great time. We did a day trip that lasted for 3 hours with Stephanie - who is an excellent guide. She took us to where the manatees were hanging out (we saw probably 15 of them) and to the pelican island. We went at a nice pace... More
