Join us for this 2 part adventure in the Seminole forest, just 30 minutes north of Orlando.
Get ready for kayaking and mountain biking in one of the areas most beautiful forests. This is “real Florida,” and something you will definitely want to experience while staying in our great state. Did you know Florida is one of the most bio-diverse eco-systems in the world? Yep! On this tour you will get to see the giant gators, and river life of the Econolockhatchee river, and then mountain bike your way through some fun single tracks in the ancient Little Big Econ Forest.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel (I-Drive and Lake Buena Vista only) between 8:30-9am. Self-drive guest must arrive to Seminole State Forest by 9am. Then we head to the ancient Seminole State Forest, also called “Little-Big Econ Forest.”
We start our day kayaking down the Econolockhatchee River, once home to Florida’s Native American Seminole tribe. Use your imagination as you begin to paddle your kayak down this famous blackwater river. You will be quickly be transported back in time to remote unspoiled Florida. Look on the river bank for mounds – they could be “Indian mounds.” These were made by Native Americans as a type of storage area along the river, so they would have a rest stop while they navigated these waters on the way to the St. John’s River. As you paddle, be on the lookout for alligators, bald eagles, blue herons and deer.
We stop for a picnic lunch (included) along the river before finishing our kayaking early in the afternoon. After a short break, it’s time to peddle into the outback of the Little Big Econ Forest. Explore some of Florida’s best single tracks, as your ride through the forest, over bridges, through creeks. This is a fun 2-hour ride that finishes out our day.
BK’s Pedal and Paddle tour from Orlando is the only one of its kind and one you should not miss if you want to have a “real Florida” adventure!

This was an amazing tour! My daughter asked to do this for part of her graduation trip. I was hesitant to say the least. I’m afraid of dark water. But John, our tour guide, put me at ease. He was super laid back and was very knowledgable about the area. We saw a huge pod of dolphins (15!) and a manatee within 5 minutes of heading out on the raft. The tour was super peaceful and fun. We saw so many comb jellies and were amazed at the bioluminescence. So cool! I would highly recommend this as a family outing.

We had a great experience with our sunset kayak and bioluminescent tour. Our tour guide, John, was pretty awesome and knowledgeable about the area. He gave us some pretty interesting information about the river, allowed for us to move at our own pace, and was a pretty chill guy. He was fun to talk to, shared some stories about his time as a tour guide in the area and was generally fun to be around. We enjoyed a magnificent sunset, an ominous and entrancing full moon, saw some dolphins, and had a great night enjoying each other’s company and the beauty of the area.

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!

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.
