    The Mysterious Blackwater Creek Kayaking

    The Blackwater Creek is for those paddlers who enjoy a bit more adventure and love serious wilderness. The creek flows through an ancient, maybe prehistoric, cypress swamp. Born on the waters of Lake Norris, the creek stretches for over twenty miles, eventually emerging onto the Wekiva River just upstream from the St. Johns River. You'll paddle the last five shady and twisting miles through gorgeous scenery. Upon reaching the confluence with the Wild and Scenic Wekiva River, you will paddle 3.5 miles upstream on Wekiva to Katie's Landing. Expect to encounter otters, alligators, wading birds, owls, and the occasional black bear.

    Bioluminescence Night Kayaking

    Imagine yourself paddling through illuminated waters of the Indian River. This is no fantasy tale, this is bioluminescence. Dinoflagellates are single-celled organisms common in marine environments and they are responsible for these "living lights." Each bioluminescent dinoflagellate flashes only a fraction of a second when disturbed by water movement, but its high concentration in the warm Indian River water creates beautiful bluish-white trails of light caused by any movement in the waters such as swimming fish and paddling kayakers. You'll kayak through this amazing natural phenomena and maybe even see a manatee while you do so. Experience this truly unique and luminous adventure.
