The source of our “living lights”—bioluminescence—is dinoflagellates, single-celled organisms common in marine environments. Each bioluminescent dinoflagellate flashes only a fraction of a second when disturbed by water movement, but its high concentrations in the warm Indian River water create beautiful bluish-white trails of light caused by swimming fish and paddling kayakers.

We had contacted ourselves about the weather / storm when it turned out that we had received the wrong location.

We had a great time! Our guide Ben was so knowledgeable and helpful. He make the trip fun, entertaining, and relaxing all at the same time. We definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting this area!
