Bioluminescence Night Tour


Chose from two enchanting ways to see this natural wonder!


Bioluminescent Kayak Tour (1½ hours)

Kayak for an easy ten minutes under a blanket of stars from Rum Point to bio bay. Kayaking is a great way to appreciate Cayman’s bio bay in a quiet and leisurely way. This adventure with Cayman Kayaks can only be described as magical, making memories that will last a lifetime!

NEW* Bioluminescent Boat (1½ hours)

With a max of only ten guests onboard their boat, ‘Moonless Moments’, a seven-minute relaxing ride to the bay is all it takes to arrive at your destination. Once anchored in the bay, floor hatches are removed to reveal a unique way to interact with the bioluminescence. The darkness is enhanced by the high walls built on this custom bio boat, creating the perfect pocket of darkness to view the stars above and the bioluminescence below. There are paddleboards on-board if guests dare to challenge themselves to a paddle in the dark. This is a great opportunity for families of all ages to accommodate all levels of adventure!

Whichever you choose, both trips by Cayman Kayaks can only be described as magical, creating memories that will last a lifetime!


What is Bioluminescence?

On land, fireflies are a good example of what it’s like. Bioluminescence is defined as “Life Emitting Light.” It is a common occurrence in the sea. However, to find an area with high concentrations of it on a regular basis is rare and something not to be missed.

Tiny microorganisms called ‘Pyrodinium Bahamanse’ are responsible for this captivating display. When at rest, they appear to sparkle, but when disturbed they release more light to be seen. Come experience it for yourself.

The bioluminescence is only visible on the darkest nights of the month.

Sky Show
A laser point show of the night sky is given when conditions allow. In the winter months Orion’s Belt, Taurus and Polaris are a common sighting. In the early summer the Southern Cross comes out for a special treat. The Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Scorpio and The Milky Way can be seen throughout the summer months.


Night Transportation
Cayman Kayaks offers a shuttle from wherever you are staying to Rum Point and back at an additional cost. Rates are cheaper than taxis and you will be driven by a member of Cayman Kayaks’ staff. You could also rent a car to explore the East End and North Side before the tour.
