Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. On dark (moonless) nights on Tomales Bay, bluish white flickers are visible in the water column, which come from blooms of bioluminescent “dinoflagellates”. These tiny critters emit short flashes of light when disturbed, and at certain times of the year put on quite a show for kayakers. All this glowing activity is only visible at night when the sun and moon are both down. Accordingly, we have set up evening paddles which should afford good viewing after we enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Want more time with the bioluminescence? You should look below at our Public Tomales Bay Camping Tours.
