We were able to see manatees and dolphins. Plus, we watched the sunset. It was incredibly beautiful and romantic. I didn't capture the photo of the sun because I was too busy enjoying the experience. I did get a shot of the beautiful sky after the sunset tour was finished. Our guides Bailey and Josh were awesome and made our trip unforgettable. They are very outgoing and knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area. The bioluminescence was beautiful that night. It was so dark that we were able to see millions of stars in the clear night sky. We were very lucky with the weather. I definitely recommend going with BK Adventures for the sunset tour and bioluminescent tour package. Oh, and don't forget to tip the guides, even though it is optional. They work really hard to make the trip enjoyable, and they have to keep track of everyone and keep them safe. It can be a high pressure job because people on the tour have different levels of kayaking experience, so be generous.
Our guide, avi, was fantastic. Answered every question. A lot better than expected,as I am a skeptic at heart. Manatees and other wildlife for the sunset trip and a very cool logar show for the evening trip out. Went on a dark and rainy night and the bio was really bright. Thank you for a great evening. I do have to mention getting there is part of the adventure, and the staff was great at providing directions when needed. - Bruce Hamilton, Google Reviews
Our trip was two days after a new moon. The trip departed at about 9:15 PM this Sunday evening. The weather was gorgeous and the lack of ambient lighting in the area surrounding Kennedy Space Center made for amazing star watching. No less exciting was the bioluminescence in the water. The dinoflagellates and the comb jellies were amazing. The unique clear hulled kayaks we're fascinating as the bioluminescent life-forms sparkled and glowed as they glided against the hull in the water. it was like thousands of green shooting stars running along the entire underside of the kayak below the waterline. every pedal stroke made the water glow. Skimming a net through the water made huge glowing swirls of green light. The guides were extremely knowledgeable about the biochemical phenomenon creating the lights and about the role of dinoflagellates and comb jellies in the ecosystem. I highly recommend this tour, especially in the days surrounding a new moon.https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34515-d8808975-r396579284-BK_Adventures-Orlando_Florida.html#
Went with friends for the Bioluminescence tour kayaking 10pm. We had a blast. Guides were fun and knew a lot about the nature of the wildlife preserve. We saw dolphins from the shore. At first glowing plankton were not out, but guide knew where to kayak and water started lighting as we paddled around. Tons of stars out. Can't say enough good stuff about BK and our guides (dillon? And jake).This was the best thing we did in Florida. Everyone should try this!https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34515-d8808975-r396579284-BK_Adventures-Orlando_Florida.html#
Bioluminescence tour/BK Adventure/Clear Kayaks-it's Pixie Dust in the water! My family and I did this tour June 8....despite the rain at the start, we had a wonderful time....our guides were so great! Pay attention to the guides and do this tour folks!!!! For the person in the front of the kayak-look down toward the front of the boat and watch the jellyfish hit it and illuminate it as you glide through the water...it's sparkles in the water! Every time you paddle, it looks like pixie dust in the water, glowing with the movement of the paddle. By the end of the tour, the rain completely stopped and the stars came out, the view of the Space Center was crystal clear. Very cool, we all really enjoyed it! Thanks so much BK!
Very memorable and a great experience. Nearly a 2 hour kayaking adventure on easy, flat water canal. Picturesque & Ram, the owner, very knowledgable. It took about 1.5 hour to drive from Orlando. - E. Peterson
Where is this tour:
Florida’s ONLY Fat Tire Bike Tour is on the Canaveral National Seashore near Kennedy Space Center. Join us for a day of adventure as we take you to this unspoiled beach and wildlife area to see some of Florida’s famous Space Coast landmarks.
What’s on the Fun Agenda:
We start this tour by letting you pack your own lunch! Guest arrive to our office and get to choose from a variety of picnic food that they will take with them for a beach picnic. Then we head out to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. This is one of America’s largest wildlife sanctuaries. It boasts rare birds, spectacular views of Kennedy Space Center and the Space-X launch pads.
What You Will See:
You and your guides will jump on your Fat Tire Bikes and head down the wildlife trails to see Florida Alligators, Blue Herons, Roseate Spoon Bills, and other animals who call this nature reserve their home.
Along the way, take time to look out across the expanse of the Space Center and snap some Insta-worthy photos of the Space-X launch pads, NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building (so large it has it’s own atmosphere), and the unspoiled Florida nature. This bit of coastlines is one of the only places you can see Florida the same way it has looked for hundreds of years. This land was originally home to a Native American tribe called the Ais.
After a fun filled ride on your Fat Tire Bicycle, you will end up at the beach! This is the time to unpack your picnic lunch and enjoy the beauty of the Atlantic ocean. Be sure to watch for Dolphins and Pilot Whales who frequently pass by this coast.
After some fun time at the beach, we will drive back and end the tour in the early afternoon. This gives you plenty of time to explore the Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, or other adventures in the area.
