These guys know their stuff. The equipment was in excellent condition. The guide we had was full on tidbits on Sarasota history as well as marine wildlife knowledge. Can't wait for my next visit down to go out again, bringing my sister and niece with me.

The mangrove tunnels were unreal and Greg goes above and beyond to make it a memorable experience. I'll be contacting Sarasota Paddleboard... More

We took a tour with Collin and had a great time! He asked us if there were any kinds of sea life we were wanting to see. We told him we wanted to see some manatees and he was able to find three of them for us. After that we made our way over to the mangrove tunnels which were... More

Our group has kayaked twice with Greg through the Mangrove Tunnels. Greg is so knowledgeable about the entire area that any questions we had he was able to answer. He also provided cool info about the area that we didn't know. He was very relaxed, friendly and sought out wildlife to show us up close! He is very eco-conscious and... More

Our eight-member group included several adults and kids ages 10 to 15 who had never paddle boarded before. Bob gave us great instruction and, after a few bobbles, we gained the confidence to stand on the boards and have a great time. It was a windy day, so we needed to stay inland, but the mangrove tunnels were very fun.... More
