When Manatees sleep and dolphins dream, octopuses creep and owls beam. Slip along in your tiny yacht, once common sights familiar not. It's a whole other world when the lights down, keep with me, I know this town!
The moonlit bay is teeming with mysterious and magical things. Discover who's awake when you thought everyone else would be asleep. Explore the coast by headlamp as you silently sneak past regal night herons on the hunt and quirky raccoons scuttling on the oysters as aerobatic bats perform overhead. Seussian octopuses and mild-mannered nurse sharks can be seen in the clear, rippling current of the narrow mangrove tunnels. If we're lucky, bioluminescent plankton will light the path ahead.
The Moonlight Tour is full of surprises and enchantments.
