Witness Florida's bioluminescence in a see-through kayak (PHOTOS)

Bioluminescence is one of the trippiest and coolest things to occur naturally in the world.

It happens when a living organism emits light as they move in water, causing a beautifully captivating glowing effect.

Get Up and Go Kayaking, Florida’s premier clear kayaking bioluminescent destination — yes, such a thing exists — is officially ready for booking for the season starting late May and ending in October 2020.

The first clear kayaking company, Get Up and Go allows guests to marvel at the enchanting site of fish, glowing as they swim underwater. At the same time, the natural current illuminates the organisms as your paddle emits light while you glide through the water

“The great thing about paddling in our clear kayaks is that you can also see the glowing directly below you!” the company’s website explains.

“Paddling in a clear kayak will enhance your bioluminescence viewing experience by a long shot!”

Guests are likely to have the best visibility nights when it is the darkest, typically those with a new moon or no moonrise at all.

The tours take place just outside of Titusville in the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and launch from the northwest side of Haulover Canal.

On top of being a great place to witness bioluminescence, the refuge is also home to large dolphin and manatee populations, both of which make frequent appearances on the excursions.
