We shared two tandum kyacks between two adults, a 10 & 8 year old. We had a blast. Tour guide Alan was awesome. This is a MUST do if you're looking for something to do in the Sarasota area. You won't regret it. And Alan kept my phone dry during a very brief shower. So he deserves 5 stars

Went on the mangrove tour in Lido Key today! What an awesome experience! Alan was a great tour guide. The paddling pace was perfect for beginners and experienced paddlers alike. Alan took the time to do a little Eco presentation which my kids loved. Despite the expected brief downpour it was a perfect morning!

We took our 3 year old & 9 year old on the mangrove tour today. Our guide Alan was really nice and so patient with us as first time kayakers with little ones. He was so knowledgable about the area. We saw several manatees and dolphins. Picked up some whelk and sea urchins and saw cool birds and black crabs... More

We went out this weekend for a guided kayaking tour on Lido Key. This was only our third time kayaking ever. We're getting better at it, but we still like to have a guide if we're going out into an area we haven't kayaked in before. Alan was our guide, and he was wonderful! The other people who were to...

This was my favorite part of our vacation in Sarasota. I'd never been in a kayak before but they gave great instructions. I felt like a pro by the end :) Our tour guide, Alan, was very informative, funny and nice...an all-around great, patient, helpful guy. The water was beautiful and it could not have been a prettier day. We... More

My Granddaughter and I returned for another ALLIGATOR TOUR with Almost Heaven Kayak Adventures in the Myakka River State Park! It was like a completely different trip since the water was a lot higher and the weather was a lot hotter! The last time it was windy with white caps, cool, and other then about a dozen gators, they were... More

This is our first time kayaking. Mom was worry about security, but after Alan's explanation, our tour was really relaxed, and informative one. Almost Heaven Kayaking team is very professional and attentive company, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area, and provided adequate mix of information along the way. Really recommend it !!

Two years ago we did the trip through the mangroves. Every since my son always talks about what a great times he had. Well, we started calling around 9am and finally someone called me back around 2. I asked if they had any opening for the next day and they did. The problem was I was driving on the highway... More

This was our 4th year kayaking at South Lido beach with Almost Heaven Kayaking. Tommy was a wonderful guide for the 12 of us. Saw great wild life, enjoyed going thru the mangrove tunnels. Will go again next year!

My kids and I took the Lido Mangrove tour and it was wonderful. None of us had been kayaking before, and I was a little nervous about how it was all going to work. My 9-year old was able to kayak the full 2 hours by herself. My 6 year old and I shared a kayak and that worked out... More
