Our guides for this tour were Derek and Will.. I had never been kayaking before but really enjoyed seeing the manatees and different birds. Several birds even followed our group around and used the kayaks to help them fish, which was really neat.. The only part I didn't like was the mangrove tunnels, because I wasn't a good enough kayaker... More

Went on a beautiful sunny Florida day with 2 kids (ages 7 and 10). Had a wonderful experience. Saw 4+ Manatee's and multiple birds and other wild life, mangroves were a blast! Kids had a wonderful time thanks to Deric and Will! Great tour guides!

We had a wonderful morning on the water with Almost Heaven Kayaks. Our guide Derric(sp?) was very knowledgable on the indigenous flora and fauna as well as the local history of Sarasota Bay. With his friendly informative tone and the beauty of the water we had a great time through and through.

There were eight of us in our kayaking adventure. Todd was very informative and entertaining as he guided us through the Lido Key Mangrove tunnels. I highly recommend Almost Heaven kayak rentals and tours.

We had 3 adults and 3 teenagers in our group. We did the Mangrove Tunnel tour. It was a beautiful day, our guide was very informative and we saw a manatee! This is a fantastic activity for families and Almost Heaven does a great job!

My family which consists of 3 children ages 9, 13, and 15 all had a blast on this tour through the mangroves. Deric was our guide and was very informative. He told us about the history of the area along with telling us what each specie was that we were seeing. We saw a manatee along with a lot of... More

We took the Lido Mangrove Tunnel Tour and had a great time. We were all novice kayakers but our guide Will gave us some instructions on paddling and we set out for our tour. Along the way Will pointed out various things about the area and explained about the water, the wildlife and the mangroves. We saw manatees and many... More

We kayaked with our teenager and five year old. Both had a great time. Our guide, Deric, was friendly and knowledgeable. No manatee or dolphin sightings, but that didn't detract from the natural beauty of the mangrove tunnels.

Our guide, Deric, was fantastic. Right off the bat, he inquired into what we most wanted to see. Manatees! So we paddled to a place where manatees had been spotted earlier in the day. Sure enough--we saw manatees. Then we meandered through the mangrove tunnels, where we saw various water birds and crabs. Then it was back to the area... More
