Owner description: Small, personalized tour groups, updated equipment including new, light, fatigue-reducing carbon fiber paddles, comfortable and easy to maneuver kayaks....And still the lowest prices guaranteed. Just a few reasons to come kayaking (tour or rental) with Sea Life Kayak. Explore exotic mangrove tunnels, paddle among manatees, dolphins and much more...With the premier kayak company in Lido, Siesta, and AMI. The owners of Sea Life Kayak Adventures come from science and conservation backgrounds and are members/volunteers of several environmental and wildlife organizations. While other companies are herding dozens of paddlers onto the water, we limit our groups to enhance the experience of our paddlers and especially the wildlife, minimizing our impact on fragile ecosystems. We use top quality, comfortable and easy to use kayaks perfect for novices or pros (most paddlers are newbies which we love), and provide instruction before we launch. Manatees, dolphins, flying rays, flying fish, cormorants (swimming with us or even riding on our boats!), And much, much more can be seen up close. We believe in tailoring our tours to our clients and having fun! Kayaking is not just our business, it's our passion. Thanks-Tom and Lauri

Excellent guided tour of mangoves around Sarasota in kayaks. Our guide(Chris)was very informative and capable. We lerrned mush about the area and it's wildlife and ecosystem. We plan to use this tour company when we return next year. Highly recommend this company.

While visiting Sarasota a couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend Cheri surprised my girlfriend Jodie and I with a kayak adventure. What a great day it was! When we first arrived, our guide Chris met us and said that the tide was out that morning, and it would be better if we waited an hour or so. This worked with... More

World Class Mangrove Tunnels and easy, delightful kayaking. Really beautiful and fun. Water is shallow and kayaks stable.

The mangroves were beautiful and our tour guide Chris was very adventurous. The tour was customized due to high winds so we spent more in the mangrove tunnels. My husband and I were happy with this company from the scheduling to the paddling to the shaking hands goodbye...

I just came home from a great kayak adventure with my sister-in-law. We really enjoyed the mangrove tunnels and all of the beautiful birds. Chris, our guide, was very knowledgeable. It was my first time in a Kayak and Chris explained it all very well. The weather was quite windy about half way through our trip and Chris was great... More

We rented a tandem kayak to explore the South Lido mangrove tunnels (self-guided) and Sea Life made the process super easy. After a quick call in they had the kayak ready to go right at the launch when we arrived, gave us a quick rundown of the area and a waterproof map of the tunnels, and let us leave the... More

Continued our vacation on Siesta Key, . we spent a lazy afternoon with Sea Life Kayaks. We met at the launch on Lido key and boarded our sit- on Kayaks for a lovely 3 hour tour. Led by our informative ( but at times too chatty) guide Tom, we easily paddled past million dollar homes and saw many interesting bird... More

We had never been kayaking so we didn't know what to expect. We went out on a cloudy day with minimal winds and it was a blast. Chris, the tour guide, was very cool and pointed out a lot of cool facts about Sarasota Bay and also the homes on the edge of the bay. The highlight is the journey... More

Thank you Chris for a great experience! We had friends in from out of town so booked 6 spots on the guided tour. How fortunate for us that day we were the only ones! We had an especially fun tour guide, Chris who was both informative and patient with a newbie kayaker as well as someone afraid of water. We... More
