Bioluminescence Paddle & A Pint – Dinoflagellate | Friday, October 20 @ 7:15 PM

In the warm and dark lagoon waters on the Space Coast of Florida lies a natural phenomenon of glowing blue waters alive with activity called bioluminescence. The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke, the darting trails of nearby fish swimming, the torpedo-like aura of a dolphin swimming by all spark the blue that many compare to the “Avatar” or “Life of Pi” movies, and some even recall “those Gatorade commercials” as the gentle plankton leave a trickling glow when holding it in your hands. Being on a wildlife refuge, other wildlife often makes appearances as well! Frequent visitors include manatees, dolphins, herons, other endangered species of birds, and even the occasional gator. Escape with us to the most pure and otherworldly experience that natural Florida has to offer. Register here


Dolphin and Manatee Encounter Paddle & A Pint | Saturday, November 4 @ 10 AM

The Merritt Island Refuge is one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet with a great concentration of marine life including, Dolphin, many kinds of birds, the occasional gator, and over 32 endangered species. The diversity of life, paired with beautiful scenery, make kayaking this Florida location a must for vacationers and residents alike. We regularly have Manatee sightings throughout much of the year, but especially from April through October. This two hour tour on the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, east of Titusville, Florida, is on one of the most diverse estuaries in North America. Make contact with Florida’s most endangered species, the West Indian Manatee. There are few places in the world where an endangered species will approach you. This is one. We also regularly see bottle nosed dolphin and many wading birds. Be sure to visit our photo gallery and Facebook and read testimonials about this exciting tour. Register here


Bioluminescence Paddle & A Pint – Comb Jelly | Sunday, November 19 @ 5:30 PM

In the cooler Florida months, bioluminescent Comb Jellies congregate in the protected waters of the Indian River Lagoon. Living in the most bio-diverse estuary in North America, Comb Jellies are clear, glob-like creatures that, despite their name, do not sting! So as you paddle the calm waters laced with mangroves and palm trees, you can catch and hold these gentle glowing creatures. They’re right at your fingertips while having a safe, awe-inspiring kayak adventure with those who share your enthusiasm for new and unique experiences. See for yourself in our Comb Jelly video!

Sunset Bird Watching Tour Paddle & A Pint | Sunday, December 3 @ 4:15 PM

If the beauty of sunsets or intrigue of birding is more your pace, we have a tour tailored just for you. The Sunset Birding tour centers you for 90 minutes in the majesty of sunset colors while birds swirl overhead! Sunset is a magical time on the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. There is movement everywhere. Dolphins are rounding up their dinner, manatees are moving into the shallows to find a comfortable spot to spend the night. As the light fades and the sky ignites with dynamics color, “Mullethead Island,” a federally protected rookery, buzzes with activity as many of the refuge’s 358 unique bird species flock above you to their protected nests for the night. Typical species to expect include Ibis, herons, egrets, pelicans, cormorants, and roseate spoonbills, all set to the backdrop of rocket launch pads and iconic NASA landscape. Launch into your escape.
