Exciting Night tour / Kayak or Stand-up Paddle / view mysterious Glowing Plankton

This exciting Night tour will lead us through the Bon Accord Lagoon via Stand-up Paddle or Kayak. We depart our base in search of glowing plankton.  Bioluminescence is caused by blooming phytoplankton.

This microscopic plankton lives in certain places in the world and lights up when stimulated putting on magical display of bright glowing blue and green colors.

These plankton use this as a defense mechanism against larger predators but sometimes attract them with their visual displays as well. These tours are dependent on many factors especially the moon cycle, so we can only offer this when conditions are right.

The tour is 2 hours long so it’s important you have some knowledge of how to kayak or stand up paddle. You can come 30 minutes early and practice before we start the tour. If all the conditions are right we will get to see lots of glowing plankton, if not (which is unlikely) we will still get a magnificent tour of the lagoon on a beautiful night.

Please note that the rate quoted is for pick-up and drop-off in Scarborough and Crown Point area.

Includes: Transport, guide fees, kayak / stand up paddle and entrance fee.
