The Ultimate Kayaking Experience with Tanaz

The first thing you will notice is the Bioluminescence in water. Tanaz will ask you to do a back row to see the light in the water. That was the highlight of the tour. Every time you slow down, you will see everyone in the group playing with the light in the water that is generated with the nitrogen that is highest near the Mangroves. The bioluminescence provides oxygen to the nursing fishes near the Mangroves.


We spotted the Saturn & Jupiter planets as soon as we started the tour. They were apparently very easy to spot for anybody who knows about stars. 


Fun Fact: Stars have combustion, Planets don’t. Stars shine due to that combustion and planets don’t


There was so much we learned about the Zodiac stars and how the stars shift their position 4 minutes to the west everyday due to the rotation of the earth. 

So far, the best way to educate someone, it’s fun and adventurous.
