My husband and I were first time kayakers - a little hesitant. However, I Kayak had all the right equipment and instruction for us. Our guide, Mark, was great! He was a wealth of knowledge and had a great sense of humor. The tour was just the right amount of time and was a great value!

They had everything in order, great customer service, and friendly staff. It was reassuring that they waited for us when I called and talked to the owner (can't... More

This was such an exceptional day and a nice way to spend time in Sarasota. It was easy to sign up online and the company was well organized . Bryon, our guide, was super, giving us some history of the area besides just the techniques about paddling. My daughter and I will definitely come back to I Kayak. What great... More

Great time on the water with I kayak. Guide was very informative while also being entertaining. We were able to see several sea creatures like sting rays and manatees, and the mangrove tunnels were beautiful to kayak through. Excellent adventure for our entire group.
