Guided Kayak Tours In Canaveral National Seashore

Sunrise & Morning Kayak Tours

Enjoy a sunrise or peaceful morning cruising in Canaveral National Seashore before the Florida sun heats up the day. Sunrise kayak tours are our favorite for birdwatching, wildlife viewing/photography, and have the best weather for the day. Sunrise & Morning Kayaking Tours are our calmest and coolest, usually with a gentle ocean breeze over calm coastal waters. These kayak tours launch from within Canaveral National Seashore and have an entrance fee for the United States National Park Service.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon on the water, viewing the hundreds of resident dolphins, or the tropical sunset, this is the kayaking tour for you. 

Bioluminescence / Stargazing Kayak Tours

Night time kayak tours for bioluminescence and stargazing offer a magical experience the whole family will love. These guided kayak tours are spectacular with with glittering stars overhead and shimmering blue bioluminescence below from comb jellies and dinoflagellate plankton. We’d like to say the bioluminescence kayak tour is a “once in a lifetime experience” but you can see the amazing Florida bioluminescence regularly with Viking EcoTours. Our Bioluminescence & Stargazing guided kayak tours are the closest bioluminescence tours to Orlando, New Smyrna Beach, and Daytona Beach.
