Bioluminescent Plankton Kayak Tour
The rock formations outside our bay provide the perfect environment to explore our bioluminescent plankton filled waters away from man-made light. Guided Bioluminescent Plankton tours begin at 7pm and last for approximately one hour. They include snorkeling gear and kayaks for exploring the water as well as our guide with a lifetime of experience on the water.
Bioluminescence refers to an electric-blue light that is emitted from the ocean of Drake Bay. This glow comes from many species of tiny plankton which contain a similar chemical to that which lights up the bums of lightening bugs throughout the Americas. These plankton species use the chemical reaction to scare off predators so it is only activated when something alters it’s immediate environment.
