You Can Now Paddle Through Florida’s Bioluminescent Waters In A See-Through Kayak

There are certain experiences that we should have in life, and one of those is kayaking through waters that naturally glow.

It might surprise you that this actually exists, but it has to do with bioluminescence. The phenomenon turns beaches and rivers into a glowing area from light-emitting marine creatures. The creatures move due to wave action and when they do, it creates breathtaking scenery.

If you would like to experience that beauty in a phenomenal way, you can use the services of Get Up And Go Kayaking. They are offering people the opportunity to explore bioluminescent waters in Florida using a kayak that is completely see-through.

What could be more beautiful than kayaking in glowing waters under a starlit sky?

What is the experience like? ‘With clear kayaks, you are able to look between your legs and see the bio right underneath you the whole time! We’ve heard guests say it looks like: “Space Mountain, time travel, a galaxy right below you, space sparkles,” and more!’

In addition to the natural glow that is there all of the time, the water illuminates as you paddle through it. All you have to do is touch the water and you will experience the beauty of having it glow from your fingertips. The season to take advantage of this is between May and October, so make your plans for next year.

According to their website: ‘Be sure to book in advance as the season generally runs from end of May-October and is most visible on the darkest nights with a new moon or no moon rise. Tours are first-come-first-serve, so don’t wait! We’ve got the BEST bioluminescent tours in Florida as our clear kayaks provide the absolute best ability to view the bioluminescence! When the organisms move in the water they create a beautiful glowing effect. This means that you can see fish underwater by the glow that they give off as they swim, your paddle will glow as you maneuver the waterways, and the natural flow of water will illuminate these organisms. We’re the first clear kayaking bioluminescent company! The great thing about paddling in our clear kayaks is that you can also see the glowing directly below you! Paddling in a clear kayak will enhance your bioluminescence viewing experience by a long shot!’

By now you are probably wondering how much this is going to cost. You might be surprised to learn that it is only $65 for an adult or $55 for children. You can see more details on their website.
