The newly announced services offer tourists and locals in the Florida area the opportunity to enjoy the stunning visuals afforded along the Banana River and the Indian River.

Bioluminescence is the light emitted by organisms as a result of the chemical reactions that take place within them. These chemical reactions release energy in the form of light, and are used by certain organisms as a defense mechanism or to lure in prey. When seen in the water, bioluminescent organisms normally give off a blue-ish, green light.

In the summer months, both the Banana and Indian River of Florida (known to some as Bioluminescent Bay) exhibit a beautiful, bright display of bioluminescence, which is best seen at night, when there’s very little to no moonlight.

Tours in the Cocoa Beach area from BK Adventure take place around the Kiwanis Island between May and September each year, though year-round tours are available around the Merritt Island Wildlife refuge.

Over the course of 90 minutes, the tour takes customers on a journey to experience the wonder and beauty of Florida’s dinoflagellates, otherwise known as bioluminescent plankton.

Tours use transparent tandem kayaks that function much like glass upon the water, allowing customers to see everything as clearly as possible. They also take place between 8.30 and midnight for optimum light conditions to see the bioluminescence.

This latest service launch is in line with the company’s commitment to providing quality, informative and entertaining tours for customers in Cocoa Beach and the Titusville area of Florida.

A satisfied customer said: “Rhett and Wilson were so great, they were both so laid back and knowledgeable. We saw the plankton and the jellies, and they even let me borrow a net so that I could look for the jellies. The see-through kayaks were so cool and gave such a great view while we paddled. We will definitely do this again when we come back – thank you guys for the amazing experience.”
