Aloha Adventure Seekers!!

BIOLUMINESCENT SEASON HAS BEGUN!!

At Cocoa Kayaking, we’re passionate about bringing you unforgettable experiences on Florida’s beautiful waterways! Bioluminescence Dinoflagellates, that magical natural phenomenon, has a specific season along the Space Coast of Florida. Typically, it dazzles our waters during the warmer months, from as early as May through as late as October. Our Bioluminescent Comb Jellies, while we refer to them as jellyfish, are not technically jellyfish and don’t sting! These prehistoric comb jellies have been around for over 500 million years. By using their glowing bioluminescent nerves, they protect themselves by keeping other predators away. These amazing jellies are typically around the months of October through March, but can sometimes hang out through the summer bioluminescent season if their cold currents allow. During this magical time, the waters come alive with the mesmerizing glow of bioluminescent comb jellies and dinoflagellate organisms, creating a breathtaking spectacle. We understand that many of you have been eagerly anticipating our bioluminescence tours, and we appreciate your enthusiasm!! We want to provide you with an update on the status of our bioluminescence tours for this summer season!!

Bioluminescent Comb Jellies Visible October-March (Or longer, as each season varies.)

Worth every penny!

We had such a great time, we had people new to kayaking and those with more experience and everyone seemed to have an equally great time. The tour was informational, relaxing and fun and the sunset was stunning but those glowing little jellyfish made you marvel at the beauty of nature. Everyone agreed it was money well spent and we'll do it again.

Love the tour!

Had a blast doing the wild life refuge with Cocoa Kayaking. Friendly staff, lots of animals and a great time on the water. Highly recommend for anyone looking to get out of the house and see some real Florida backcountry wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, birds, and the occasional gator if you're lucky. Will be back again, thanks for the great trip!

Manatees and mangroves!

James was a friendly and laid back tour guide that took time with us as beginners and pointed out all the neat things to see during the tour. We had a great experience seeing manatees, mangrove crabs, birds, and we got some fun pictures along the way. The company was very helpful with updates and was easy to book and communicate with.

Bioluminescence glowing fun!

If you're looking for a fun weekend activity check out Cocoa Kayaking! Family friendly and so much fun. Guides are knowledgeable of the local eco system and it's so peaceful out on the water. I took my daughter on the Bioluminescence tour and we loved it! Cocoa Kayaking makes it extra fun by providing glowsticks and water shooters. Well definitely be back soon as we had so much fun!
