You can Now Paddle in a See-Through Kayak to See Florida’s Bioluminescent Waters




Florida Adventurer, a kayak company in Florida is offering a range of bioluminescence water tours. The tour gives you an amazing experience of viewing the waters coming alive in bright glowing hues in a see-through kayak. You can seek this opportunity majorly in July – October, but can even extend upto January. The brightest displays usually arrive after 9 p.m. This is a natural phenomenon in Florida which occurs mainly due to a chemical reaction in the water that causes Cone Jellyfish and bioluminescent plankton to glow when the water is disturbed.

This phenomenon turns the area’s rivers and lagoons into a glowing paradise that travelers can kayak and paddleboard through. The illumination takes place at any time when the water is disturbed even by a stroke of a paddle or by merely touching the water with one’s hand. One gets too see waves of glowing lights that are indeed a fascinating natural display.

The Florida bioluminescence tour usually occurs on the bioluminescent bay that hosts more glowing plankton than almost anywhere else in the world. The phenomenon is spread across various locations that come together to form the Indian River Lagoon which includes the Banana River, the Indian River, and Mosquito Lagoon. Even dolphins, manatees, and views of the Kennedy Space Center can also be spotted while you take part in bioluminescence tours especially when they weave through mangroves and calm waters.

It is advisable that the visitors check the lunar calendar at the time of planning tours. It has been observed that the best views arrive five days after a full moon when the nights are darkest between July and October. The maximum duration of the tour is usually an hour or an hour and half. You will find a range of outfitters hosting guided tours by kayak and stand up paddleboard. See-through kayaks are one of the most unforgettable ways to experience the scene as the ‘Get Up’ and ‘Go Kayaking’ offer allows the kayakers to glide right over the bioluminescence and ignite it as they paddle and view the ride closely.

Top Road Trip Destinations in Canada




Did you know that 1.93 million Americans traveled to Canada in 2020? That number was down year-over-year due to COVID-related travel restrictions. 

While some Americans visit the Great White North via plane, others prefer road trips. It can be fun to plan an itinerary, book a hotel, pack the luggage, load your family into the car, and head to the border. But if a road trip to Canada is in the plans for you and yours this summer, what Canadian destinations are worth the potentially thousands of miles of driving? Keep reading to learn about the top road trip destinations in Canada.

Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan

Grasslands National Park is one of Canada’s 44 national parks and park reserves. Whether you’re an earlier bird or a night owl, the national park in Southern Saskatchewan provides an ideal prairie landscape. It’s the perfect place to unwind, immerse yourself in nature, and recalibrate your life.

Enjoy the great outdoors on a campsite, or take part in hiking adventures by exploring trails. The solitude and breathtaking beauty of this national park will leave you in awe. Make time for the Ecotour Scenic Drive. It’s about 20 km (around 12.5 miles) long and will take one to three hours to complete depending on your pace. 

Toronto to Stratford, Ontario

If there’s one Canadian city most Americans have heard of, it’s Toronto. Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is the fourth largest city on the continent. It’s also home to the only authentic castle in North America. Casa Loma, located in midtown Toronto, is worth the visit. So, too, is the CN Tower, which is the biggest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. The city also has citizens representing 200+ ethnic groups. 

While there’s plenty to see and do in Toronto, why stop there? It’s a good idea to include a Toronto-to-Stratford excursion while on your road trip to Canada. You must travel 150 km (about 93 miles ) west to get to Stratford. You’ll see Victorian architecture and get to take in the live theater. Most Americans probably haven’t heard of Stratford before. But when you come for a visit, there’s a good possibility you won’t ever forget it.

North Cape Coastal Drive, Prince Edward Island

If you haven’t ever taken a road trip to Prince Edward Island, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s Canada’s smallest province, but it sure offers a boatload of fun. Are you a foodie or do you like to indulge in the local cuisine when traveling? Check out the western peninsula. You can delight your tastebuds with the range of food available. 

Make time to visit the Canadian Potato Museum in the province. After taking in the sites and attractions at the museum, enjoy a meal at the onsite PEI Potato Country Kitchen. The menu has items like the chili topped baked potato, which features a baked potato, homemade chili, and cheese. Meanwhile, the pulled pork potato features a baked potato topped with pulled pork, cheese, and sour cream on the side. That’s just a sampling, and all baked potato dishes are served with fresh-cut, homemade chips.

If you’re intersted in a U.S. to Canada road trip this year, the options above will give you some ideas. The sky’s the limit since there’s so much to see and do. 

You’ll want to ensure your vehicle is in good working order to avoid breakdowns. You’ll also want to stay alert on the road since you’ll be traveling a lot of miles and spending hours behind the wheel of your car. 

If you get into an accident, you must know what to do. In addition to reporting the accident, calling your insurer, and possibly even booking a rental car to complete your road trip, you’ll want to contact a personal injury lawyer if anyone is injured. 

No one wants to consider accidents or injuries when on a road trip. But it’s best to hope for the best while being prepared for the worst. You’ll enjoy the journey and the destination a lot more when you’ve done everything possible to prepare for any possible issues.
