Night Glow Kayak Tour

Where:Victoria, British Columbia
Price for:1 Participant
Experience one of nature’s most extraordinary spectacles on this nighttime, bioluminescence kayaking tour. With a maximum of six participants, you’ll paddle out into Vancouver Island’s Tod Inlet as the sun sets, where underwater species give the water a special glowing effect.
An evening paddle with a special lightshow!

Paddle out to watch a beautiful Brentwood Bay sunset and then across the bay to Tod Inlet to check out the bio-luminescence.

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. On dark nights in the water, bluish white flickers are visible. Paddling in the evening is a unique experience, and the naturally occurring bio-luminescence makes this experience even more spectacular.
