Full Moon Tours and Bioluminescence Tours: dates based on weather and the time of the month. 2 hours

These are night tours that focus on safety and fun as we experience the Oceans in a unique way that few have had the opportunity to enjoy. The silence opens our senses as we glide through the water almost as if we are flying. On the Full Moon Tour the moonlight guides us as we connect with the dusk and nocturnal world. The Bioluminescence Tour gives us a surreal experience. Living organisms emit light that causes the water to glow, our paddles and boat, as well as any movement in the ocean accent this offering, a dance of light as we paddle in darkness. This is a beautiful way to connect with the mysteries and wonders of nature.
