Catch the sunset behind the beautiful Miami skyline then watch the waters come alive as bio-luminescent plankton light up and delight spectators. 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 bio-luminescent plankton flickering like a starry night sky. As you move through the dark water these tiny creatures glow with life. Wave your paddle through the water in front of you, and be mesmerized by the tiny sparkling specs of plankton or Dinoflagellates, tiny unicellular marine plankton also known as fire plants. Fed by the thriving mangrove forest these tiny creatures generate a green flash of light when agitated.
