    Looking for future dates? Simply send us an email with the dates you are visiting the island! 

    Cayman Kayaks is Cayman's first Bioluminescent tour operator and the ONLY company to offer Electric Bioluminescent Boat tours. Our brand new customized electric powered catamaran will take you silently and leisurely through the Bioluminescent Bay without harming the organsims.  Once inside the Bay guests will sit down in the observation deck to personally interact with the Bioluminescence. This is not a glass bottom boat, there are holes in the middle of the boat so once we get to the bay we take off the covers and you will be able to dangle your feet and legs in the glowing water. Cayman Kayaks is proud to serve their Environmentally conscious guests by helping them explore this phenomenon fuel free. 

    These night tours run on the darkest nights of the month to allow the best quality tour.

    What is Bioluminescence?

    Bioluminescence is defined as "Life Emitting Light." Bioluminescence is a common occurrence, however, finding an area with high concentrations on a regular basis is something not to be missed. On land we see bioluminescence is fireflies, glowworms and occasionally glowing fungi. However, in the ocean bioluminescence is much more common but extremely rare to be seen in high concentrations. Tiny microorganisms called 'Pyrodinium Bahamanse' are responsible for the captivating display. When at rest, they appear to sparkle, but when disturbed they release more light to be seen. Come and find out why these unique bays exist.

    Why an Electric Catamaran to do the Bioluminescent Tour

    Cayman Kayaks is a fully eco-friendly tour operator and passionate about the environment. We use the slogan "Travel By Paddle' simply because diesel and gasoline engines kill the bioluminescent organisms. When we started the company in 2006 we strictly only used kayaks to play in the bioluminescence in order to preserve and protect them. Now as more guests are interested in seeing the bay and some are not capable or interested in kayaking we have taken some time to design and build the perfect custom boat for the tour so we are not harming the microscopic organisms. The custom built catamaran has been equipped with electric motors so that when we are exploring the magical bay the boat is not only silent but most importantly it is friendly to the fragile environment.  Do your part and explore this natural phenomenon fuel free!

Some may enjoy a long sleeve for the ride.  We suggest swimsuit, t-shirt, shoes that can get wet or barefoot at your own risk.  A towel and spare dry shorts are recommended for a comfortable drive back at the end of the tour. 

    Do we get wet?
    Yes

    Can we swim?
    We are trying to preserve these creatures in the bioluminescent bay so we ask our guests to be very cautious of the chemicals used on their skin and hair. Our guests have never complained about the close interaction they get to have with the Bioluminescence. You will have the opportunity to be putting your hands and feet in the water. We do not encourage swimming on the tour for multiple reasons:
    1) There are thousands of jellyfish in the bay. When guests jump in, they stir jellyfish up from the bottom of the bay and you can get stung which may be very uncomfortable.
    2) Chemicals/lotions on your skin/hair put in the water hamrs these microscopic creatures. Please be respectful to this natural phenomenon and wash off all skin lotions, bug sprays, deodorants before the tour begins. We want to only interact with the organisms with our legs, hands and paddles. 

    Are there Mosquitoes?
    Not on the water. In the summer months, there are mosquitoes on the shoreline during check-in. Please wash off your lotions and bug sprays before entering the bio bay, because the lotions and sprays will harm the organisms creating the glowing water.

    Do you provide life vests?
    Yes. 

    Do you have a secure place to put keys while we are on tour?
    Yes.
