On this AMAZING tour, you get the best of our most popular kayaking tours. See Florida’s amazing variety of birds like cranes, storks, falcons, anhinga, cormorants, and eagles (just to name a few). Look out for dolphins playing in the river. Then as the day turns dark, we paddle into our favorite spots to see Florida’s bioluminescent creatures. Depending on the season, you will see dinoflagellate plankton or comb jellies. During the mid-seasons (Mar to June and Nov – Dec), you might even see both!
After some fun, we kayak through parts of the Inter-coastal Waterways where you find a variety of beautiful birds, possibly some alligators, and some dolphins. It’s pretty cool. By this time, the sun will have prepared for a breathtaking River view Sunset. We will kayak out to get a good view of Bird Island on the Indian River and enjoy this time out on the waters. Dolphins are usually very active at this time and we may even see some manatees.
Picnic Break – We will stop and have our Picnic Break. We recommend bringing out your favorite snacks to enjoy your picnic experience.
Bioluminescent Kayaking – After the sun goes down, you will head back out for the bioluminescence night kayaking tour. See the water glow and sparkle as you paddle through the dark waters of Haulover Canal.

More about the Indian River Wildlife and Manatees
The Indian River Lagoon is an estuary that is fed by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean making it a unique natural habitat. Florida has more endangered or threatened species than any other state, and the Indian River is home to 36 rare or endangered wildlife. This river is home to dolphins and the West Indian Manatee. Manatees love this river because of the abundance of seagrass beds.
Other rare wildlife you are likely to see are: Wood Storks, Roseate Spoonbills, Loggerhead Turtles, Blue Crabs, Seahorse, Otters and Great Blue Herons. In the summer months, night tours offer a rare view of glowing seaweed that is “bioluminescent.” Yes – it glows in the dark!
