Bioluminescence Boat Tour

Cocoa Beach, FL
1.5-1.75 Hours
Up to 5 People
$350 for 1 to 5 Guests

Overview

Enjoy full bioluminescence with our Bioluminescence Boat Tour OR both the sunset AND early-evening bioluminescence with our Sunset-Bio Boat Tour. All from the comfort and convenience of a BOAT!

10:15pm Private Bioluminescence Boat Tour

Experience Indian River bioluminescence fully with up to five of your family and friends on our private Bioluminescence Boat Tour

After a summer sunset, the waters of the Indian and Banana River Lagoon come alive with a bioluminescent glow like only a few other places in the world. A dinoflagellate microscopic organism, Pyrodinium bahamense, responds to mechanical agitation by luminescing. A moving boat illuminates the water almost like glowing paint. A speeding school of mullet look like multiple underwater bottle rockets. A swimming dolphin trails glowing streamers like a comet. The summertime glowing waters of the Indian and Banana River Lagoon truly is a bucket-list experience.

Experience all of this from our 22ft boat – large enough to be seated comfortably while small enough to still be close to the water. You’ll experience the Indian River bioluminescence much more intimately than in larger pontoon boats or other water craft.

This is a private group tour with a maximum of five guests launching from the Cocoa Beach area.

8:00pm Private Sunset and Bioluminescence Boat Tour

Experience an Indian River Sunset and early evening bioluminescence with up to five of your family and friends on our private Sunset-Bio Boat Tour

Sunsets over the Indian and Banana River Lagoon are a special event. The orange glow of the sun, typically calm waters, surrounding mangroves and wildlife finishing their days create a uniquely beautiful setting.

After sunset, the waters of the Indian and Banana River Lagoon come alive with a bioluminescent glow like only a few other places in the world. A dinoflagellate microscopic organism, Pyrodinium bahamense, responds to mechanical agitation by luminescing. A moving boat illuminates the water almost like glowing paint. A speeding school of mullet look like multiple underwater bottle rockets. A swimming dolphin trails glowing streamers like a comet. The summertime glowing waters of the Indian and Banana River Lagoon truly is a bucket-list experience.

Now you can experience both the sunset and the early evening bioluminescence on a private tour from our 22ft boat – large enough to be seated comfortably while small enough to still be close to the water. You’ll experience the lagoon sunset and bioluminescence much more intimately than in larger pontoon boats or other water craft.

This tour leaves before sunset and finishes after dark in the early evening just as the bioluminescence is beginning for the night.

This is a private group tour with a maximum of five guests launching from the Cocoa Beach area.

Why Choose Us

Fin Expeditions takes pride in following established best practices of Ethical Ecotourism.

SMALL GROUP SIZE

We want our kayak tours to have a more intimate experience for every guest. Large groups disrupt wildlife habitats and require loud guide communication and a less personalized approach. Other kayak tour agencies put 40 or more people in a group. We typically limit the size of our tours to 12 guests 

TRAINED GUIDES

At Fin Expeditions our guides are highly trained. Other kayak tour agencies may give their guides as little as 2 hours of training. Our guides receive 50+ hours of training before they are certified to lead a tour.

LOCALLY OWNED

Fin Expeditions is locally owned and our tours are run by local guides that are knowledgeable, friendly and know the area inside and out. We support our local community and efforts to conserve and restore the Indian River Lagoon.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

We are top-rated on Tripadvisor and Google for a reason. We know what it’s like to travel and do what we can to take some of that load off our guests. Just show up and we’ll take care of the details.

BETTER EQUIPMENT

We believe by fully equipping our guests, we provide an upscale experience. We use high-end kayaks with high-back seats for your comfort. We clean and sanitize all equipment and life jackets after each use.

Daytime Photos included
Complimentary photos of your experience are included. Our guide will take high quality photos during daytime tours. Within a day after the tour, you will be emailed a link to your tour album where you can receive pictures at no charge.
