Guided Night Kayak Tours

Few visitors to the Orlando area are aware of the fact that the Indian River Lagoon is home to truly unique and magical natural phenomena. The nighttime waters glow! During the summer months on the Indian and Banana Rivers every movement in the water produces light! The movement of your paddle or a school of fish leaves a blue-green trail. The movement of manatees and stingrays leave a slow-moving glow. Every movement in the water produces light with bioluminescence. It’s a great time of year for a sunset/evening kayak tour.

Calypso Kayaking also offers a Comb Jelly Bio Kayak Tour. These tours run at night (so you can see them glow), and are offered seasonally – generally December-March. As these jellyfish do prefer the cooler temps provided by this time of the year. These jellies do not sting, but they do. give off a bioluminescent green light. You will see them give off sparks of light with every paddle stroke!

We also offer kayak tours on the tranquil moonlit waters of the lagoon. This is a night time excursion where you can relax under the moon and starts with an experienced local guide. It’s quite a memorable experience!

Merritt Island Kayak Rentals

If you’re the “do-it-yourself” type or would prefer to experience your kayaking adventure in a private setting with only your small group of friends and family, then private kayak rentals are for you.

We offer private kayak rentals for groups of all sizes. For an affordable hourly rate, you can build your own custom kayak adventure. If you choose to depart from Manatee Cove (where our guided tours begin), your kayaks will be waiting in the water and ready to go at the time of your choosing. You can just hop on board and begin your self-guided tour.

This area has the best wildlife viewing, you may encounter Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins and the endangered Manatee. It is always a thrill to see these mammals in the wild. You will see the birds that call Florida home like Osprey, Great Blue Heron, Great Egret, Tri-colored Heron, Snowy Egret, White Ibis and Brown pelican- just to name a few. Explore an Island and search for shells and marine life in the shallow waters of the Indian River. A must do if you are in the central Florida area.
