So this weekend I jetted off to the beautiful little town of Union Hall for some night time kayaking. My Boyfriend had planned this as part of a birthday trip away and I have to say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
Having the experience of kayaking in a double kayak as the sunset was absolutely amazing. We cruised around for about 1.5hours and I could have stayed out there for so much longer. There were about 15/20 of us in total and we all cruised along in a group stopping every now and again to make sure everyone was together and to hear some amazing stories about the area. There was an abandoned ship in the middle which also added to the experience perfectly. We also came across Bioluminescence,
which I had never heard of before, and it was absolutely amazing. it was as if there was glitter sparkling in the water, and every girl loves a bit of glitter 🙂 it was truly magical.
For anyone wanting to try this amazing experience my advice would be GO FOR IT!!! If you are thinking that the darkness might be an obstacle for you, don’t worry your eyes adjust and you can see perfectly. I have to admit I am petrified of the dark and i had no issue with it at all. I think having someone in the kayak with you is perfect as you can chit chat away while enjoying floating along the river.
The weather was perfect but I wouldn’t let that sway your decision to go either way as it was miserable just before we got on the water and then it was perfect as we got out on the water. I cannot recommend this place enough please give it a look. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to take any photos this time around but they have plenty on their website.
