Florida’s Space Coast is one of the few places in the world where you can see glowing waters with activity called bioluminesence. During the summer months, the waters come alive with bioluminescent creatures called “dinoflagellates.” The microorganisms create their own blue-green light, like fireflies, which creates a nice trail of glowing lights as you paddle. The best way to experience this incredible display is by kayaking or paddleboarding at night. Most kayak companies on the Space Coast offer a bioluminescence tour, so get to paddling and see a nice trail of glowing lights follow you!
