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! As a pioneer of bioluminescence tours, Cayman Kayaks has the experience to always take you to the best concentrations of bioluminescence as these vary from week to week depending on weather conditions.

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.

Note: Wear attire you feel comfortable to get wet in; swim suit, t-shirt, sandals or flip-flops. Leave a towel behind in your vehicle for your ride back.

    February 28, 2017 | Bioluminescence Kayak Night Tour (Cayman Kayaks )

    The bioluminescence kayak tour was fabulous. Our group of 6 took the 9:15 tour and kayaking under the stars was such an awesome experience. Our guide, David, was excellent and a perfect balance of information and peaceful paddling time. The bay of bioluminescence was totally cool. We appreciate the respectful way in which Cayman Kayak treats the ocean life. Keep up the good work!
