Imagine paddling across calm water under the stars. The only other lights around you are the moon and your LED paddleboard. This glow in the dark paddleboarding tour in California is the perfect end of summer adventure.
This glow-up tour will run till September 28th. Tickets cost $30 per person and reservations are required, as tickets sell out quickly. You can book your tour anytime from 7:15 pm to 9:00 pm.
On your tour, you’ll get an LED-lit paddleboard and a 75-minute tour through the beautiful waters of Newport Bay. Keep your eyes open for cool marine life.
Some people have even spotted bioluminescent plankton lit up by their glowing board! It’s common to see some cool fish, non-stinging jellyfish, rays, and sea lions.
This tour attracts travelers from all around the world! While the tour offers a short refresher lesson for paddle boarders, it is not recommended for beginners. Paddleboarding is a full-body workout.
To add to the fun, you can come wearing neon clothing and glow-sticks. Grab a group of your friends and head out on the water! This one of a kind experience is not the only thing offered at Pirate Coast Paddle. You can also rent a kayak to explore the coves or book a group event.
For the nighttime tour, it can get a little cold, so make sure to wear comfy clothes like yoga leggings or a light sweatshirt. It's also recommended to bring a towel and an extra change of clothes.
One of the highlights of taking a night tour is that you get to see the beautiful sunrise before you head out. Just look at this fiery sky!
Paddling takes a lot of upper body strength and it’s easy to fall off your board. But don’t worry if you do, the water’s still pretty warm at night.
This is one adventure you won’t want to miss. It’s time to get your glow on.
