IBIS BAY Beach Resort Brings Exclusive Nighttime Ocean Adventures To Key West

IBIS BAY Beach Resort is opening a whole new world of ocean exploration in Key West with a new unique nighttime adventure, Nightboarding™.  Using I-Lumenate’s new Night-Ops waterproof LED light bars, IBIS BAY Paddle Sports is proud to be the exclusive tour operator in the Florida Keys!  The unique oceanic experience will launch Feb. 15, and interested parties can sign up now by calling IBIS BAY Paddle Sports at (305) 896-0342. 

According to IBIS BAY Beach Resort owner and Key West resident Chris Holland, 
“Wildlife lovers, watersport enthusiasts and anyone who wants to try something absolutely brand new are going to love Nightboarding.  The ocean floor comes alive at night with creatures you normally don’t see in the daytime, such as lobsters, crabs, colorful sponges and loads of tropical fish.  IBIS BAY is the only place in the Keys and one of only a handful of places in the world offering this.  And as we quickly found out, the 3,000 lumens of white light Night-Ops light bars produce makes for some amazing sights and photos!”

IBIS BAY Paddle Sports will offer two different Nightboarding experiences on the protected waters of Ibis Bay. There is the 2.5 hour Sunset Cruise and the 1.5 hour Nightrider Experience.  The Sunset Cruise launches an hour before sunset, allowing the group to get out to the open water while watching the sunset, then make the return trip in the dark with the full spectacle of the powerful LED lights shining into the crystal clear water below.  The Nightrider Experience launches 15-30 minutes after the Sunset Cruise returns (exact times vary with the season).

Launching right from the dock at IBIS BAY’s popular restaurant, The Stoned Crab, the adventures costs $55 per person for The Sunset Cruise and $45 for The Nightrider Experience. Each trip accommodates groups of up to 10 people.  What’s more, the IBIS BAY Paddle Sports guides narrate the tour and take high-quality photos that are uploaded wirelessly and put on CDs for each guest to take home when tour finishes back at IBIS BAY!  Guests will pass through many areas of interest including mangrove island rookeries that are the home of ibis, herons, pelicans and their fledglings.  Interested parties are encouraged to book in advance as tours are filling up quickly! Call IBIS BAY Paddle Sports at (305) 896-0342.
