Get Up and Go Kayaking

Get Up and Go Kayaking is a Florida-based company that offers clear kayak guided tours in beautiful natural springs all over Central Florida. The clear kayaks provide extra views of the breathtaking Florida wildlife and crystal clear water.

Spend a few hours on a guided kayak tour with the whole family (there are no age limits in place for the tours) as a great getaway from the busy theme parks. Tours are kept small to make sure that you get an intimate experience and maximum interaction. With friendly and knowledgeable guides, you’ll have a great time and learn a lot about the beautiful Floridian wilderness.

Bioluminescent Kayaking

For a truly magical experience to enjoy on your Orlando vacation, consider the Bioluminescence night kayaking tour only a short drive away in Titusville. Only available during the summer months, these tours provide a chance to see the natural glowing bioluminescence.

Bioluminescence is the emission of light by a living organism. When the organisms move in the water they create a beautiful glowing effect. This means that you can see fish underwater by the glow that they give off as they swim, your paddle will glow as you maneuver the waterways, and the natural flow of water will illuminate these organisms. Tours take place late at night when the moon is darker than 55% to see the optimum effect of the bioluminescence. Each tour typically lasts 90 minutes and maxes out at 10 paddlers to provide an intimate experience.
