Bioluminescent & Star Gazing Paddle

Experience an unforgettable evening paddle in Castine Harbor’s Bioluminescent Bay under a blanket of stars and in the midst of bioluminescent organisms of the water that swirl and light up with every stroke of your paddle! Fascinating! Castine’s Harbor is Maine’s own Bioluminescent Bay with a unique ecosystem that creates the perfect environment for these glow in the dark phytoplankton to survive and multiply. In our unique “Floating Planetarium” we’ll explore the constellations of the stars of the night sky while immersed in the bioluminescent stars of the water!
