Bioluminescent Paddle + Camp

Saturday, September 14 at 12:00 pm - Sunday, September 15 at 3:00 pm

| $124

Join Outdoor Pursuits on a one of kind adventure! The incredible phenomenon is like the northern lights, but in the water. We will be paddling in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge during peak time to see bioluminescent plankton. Dinoflagellate plankton are naturally glowing organisms that light up the waters of the Indian River Lagoon as you paddle through the canals and kayak trails of this unique estuary. Overnight camping is also provided!
