Bioluminescent Kayak Tour. Fin Expeditions is Cocoa Beaches Top Rated Kayak Tour

Top Rated
Indian River Lagoon, Vero Beach

Explore real magic! During the summer months, the water of the Banana River Lagoon comes alive after sunset with Bioluminescence. A microscopic organism begins to activate one of the most amazing chemical reactions found in the world. Watch as every stroke of your paddle illuminates the water! A speeding school of mullet swimming under your kayak looks like hundreds of green bottle rockets going off underwater. We are the top-rated activity to do in Cocoa Beach for good reason. Our goal is to treat everyone like they are family. Our tours are run by local guides that know the area in and out. They will take you deep into the lagoon to places you would not normally find on your own. Many Kayak Tour agencies stuff as many people as they can on a tour. We love our kayak tours to have a very unique experience for every guest so we limit the size of our tours to 10 guests. We are here to help you and guide you on a magical tour of a lifetime.
