Have you ever witnessed sparkles emerging from the splash of your paddle? If not, you are here for nature’s most fascinating treat. When the new moon phase begins in the summer, bioluminescent dinoflagellates or plankton emit a shimmering burst of fluorescent green-blue light when disturbed by the hull of your kayak or whaleboat. Experience a magical night show produced by thousands of marine dinoflagellates in Tomales Bay with NVP bioluminescence tours.
You can choose Crescent Tandem Kayaks with elevated framed seats or book our private Handcrafted Wooden Whaleboat (4-5 seater) that allows light to reflect through the translucent hull. The tour is led by a personal guide by NVP.
