Paddle and a Pint Tour with A Day Away Kayak Tours

UPDATED August 2019

Forget wine and dine dates, it’s all about kayaking and beer! A Day Away Kayak Tours and Playalinda Brewing Company in Titusville have teamed up for a series of Paddle & A Pint experiences perfect for date night.

Kayaking is a great way to exercise your teamwork skills as a couple (trust me, you learn a lot about each other while in a tandem kayak) while enjoying the outdoors. Who knows, you might just discover a new hobby.

Tickets are typically $40-$45/person ($30-$35 if you bring your own kayak) and include a guided kayak tour followed by a free pint of beer at Playalinda Brewing Company – Hardware Store in Titusville. Experiences range from bioluminescence (in season) to manatee encounters and bird watching.

The fun begins on a 90-minute guided kayak tour at the picturesque Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge with A Day Away Kayak Tours. Located near Titusville, the refuge is home to a variety of wildlife including dolphins, manatee, birds, gators, and more.

The tour is suitable for kayakers of all experience levels and the pace is leisurely. All kayaking equipment will be provided. You may get wet during the tour, so bring along a change of clothes. You'll also want to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, and bug spray.

After soaking up nature at the refuge, the experience continues with a visit to Playalinda Brewing Company – Hardware Store, Titusville’s only craft beer micro-brewery. There you'll find 11 Playalinda beers on tap including IPAs, ales, and stouts. Enjoy your free pint of craft beer (or a non-alcoholic drink) at a reserved table where you’ll mingle with your fellow paddlers.

Bioluminescent Paddle & A Pint
Saturday, August 10, 2019 | 8:15pm
Indian River Lagoon and Playalinda Brewing Company – Hardware Store
Ticket includes a 90-minute kayak tour, followed by a Playalinda beer. In the warm and dark lagoon waters on the Space Coast of Florida lies a natural phenomenon of glowing blue waters alive with activity called bioluminescence. The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke, the darting trails of nearby fish swimming, the torpedo-like aura of a dolphin swimming by all spark the blue that many compare to the “Avatar” or “Life of Pi” movies, and some even recall “those Gatorade commercials” as the gentle plankton leave a trickling glow when holding it in your hands.

Additional Bioluminescent Paddle & A Pint dates:

  • Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 8pm TICKETS
  • Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 7:45pm TICKETS
