Save the Date

Join us on Friday, June 25th at 7:30PM for an evening like no other at the Virginia Key Outdoor (VKOC).  We will be chasing down the sun and catching the ocean's breeze. Launch with us from our serene lagoon and take a trip to the beach or raft up and float as the sun sets behind Miami’s stunning skyline. Come out and enjoy twilight setting the sky aflame as we get up close and personal with nature.


As we return we will be searching for bioluminescent plankton. Marine glow worms have been very active near the full moon this season. As their courtship heats up, magic happens. Watch them light up the water. These are amazing moments.  One of the most spectacular sights on a night trip is to witness hundreds of tiny star-like bioluminescent plankton flickering like a starry night sky. 


Upon our arrival back to the Virginia Key Outdoor Center we will be greeted by fire dancers, watch them twirl their batons and show you how great a night under the stars at VKOC can be. Local vendors selling food and drinks.
