Although this is not a wildlife refuge tour, it is one of the places to go while on a refuge tour. During the summer, there is great illumination in the waters of the Indian Rivers and Mosquito Lagoon and this is because of bioluminescence. Every movement of the animals in this part produces light. The manatees glow, the sting rays some shining creatures from a sci-fi movie, and fast moving little fish are like glow-in-the-dark rocket. This kayaking adventure takes around 2 and half hours. You can experience this bioluminescence from June through September. There is no trouble kayaking in these areas.
