Chris was great! The weather was great, even though we had a few raindrops. Got to see some dolphins, lots of bird life, almost got a glimpse of a manatee too. Mangroves were awesome! Definitely worth it. Put on plenty of sunscreen!

We met some friends in Sarasota and decided to take the kayak tour. We had a great and relaxing time paddling through the mangroves and finding many different birds and other critters as we paddled.

Despite the rainstorm and not seeing any large marine life Phil made the tour great. This is a must do on your trip to the Siesta/Lido area.

Had a great time paddling around Sarasota Bay and through the mangroves. Jay, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. His relaxed demeanor really set the tone for a pleasant afternoon!

Went on a guided kayak tour of the mangroves yesterday. Had a great time. Our tour guide Jay was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area and ecology. Highly recommend this. It was a great way to spend a morning outside on the water.

Hi there. Our Lido Mangrove Tunnel tour is our most popular tour because of the incredible canopy covered kayak trails through a Mangrove forest! The Siesta Key Tour is beautiful as well, but there are no Mangrove Tunnels... More

We booked it like the day before, so I don't think there's a line for it. There was only one couple who went with us on the morning trip so it was more of a personal tour.
