During the summer months, the water of the Banana River Lagoon comes alive after sunset with bioluminescence. A microscopic organism begins to activate one of the most amazing chemical reactions found in the world. Watch as every stroke of your paddle illuminates the water on this Cocoa Beach nighttime kayaking tour! A speeding school of mullet swimming under your kayak looks like hundreds of green bottle rockets going off underwater.
Please call us if you still need more information about the differences between our bio tours. We are always excited to answer any questions you may have.
LOOKING FOR AN EASIER BIOLUMINESCENCE EXPERIENCE?
We are now offering an introductory bioluminescence tour out of historic Field Manor on Merritt Island. Just minutes away from Cocoa Beach, this Indian River tour is shorter and requires less paddling than our typical guided tours. It is a great option for beginner paddlers looking for a brief introduction to bioluminescence
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.
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.
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.
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.
