Best Time to Go Bioluminescent Kayaking 

Imagine a luminescent voyage through the shimmering waters of Indian River Lagoon, embraced by the surreal glow of bioluminescence. Calypso Kayaking offers unforgettable tours that make kayaking an experience you’ll cherish forever. So, when is the best time for a bioluminescent kayaking trip with maximum twinkle? 

When to Book 

Warm summer nights are the optimal time to enjoy bioluminescent kayaking. From May through September, bioluminescent organisms are in high concentration in the Indian River Lagoon. The water temperature is ideal for microscopic dinoflagellates to dazzle and sparkle. Add the calm water and balmy nights, and you have the perfect conditions for this once-in-a-lifetime spectacle. 

The recommended time of day to embark on your journey is 30 minutes after sunset, when your eyes have adjusted to the darkness and the glowing creatures are fully illuminated. But the optimal time is on dark nights with a new moon, when the bioluminescent effect is quite spectacular.
