Dan, our guide, was great. We were out for about 3 hrs which just flew by. We learned so much about the area. While we didn't see any manatee, we did get a good look at a dolphin with baby fishing in the shallows. We saw starfish, a giant hermit crab, and a lot of other sea life. Kayaking through... More

Dan made our kayak adventure so much fun. His knowledge of the flora and fauna was immense. We saw a juvenile manatee due to his understanding of the best possible areas for sitings. Before our trip began his calm manner immediately reassured my jitters as a new kayaker. Cannot wait until I can do it again.

We have booked twice now with Adventure Kayak in the last couple of month. First time was in June when I took our 12 year old son for a little getaway to our condo on Longboat Key. Our youngest had never kayaked before but quickly got the hang of it and Dan was simply wonderful with him. Our group was... More

Started off by meeting at Lido key beach. The kayaks were ready when we got there. Dan, our guide was extremely helpful getting us in the water and took us on our tour. We did not see dolphins but saw manatees and their babies! It was pretty windy the day we went but still had fun racing each other to... More

We took a tour with Dan and had a great family time. It had been years since I kayaked but, with Dan's instruction, I was able to navigate the twists and turns with little difficulty. There were others with no prior experience and they also encountered little difficulty. Have to admit that I anticipated that we would spend more time... More

We have been going to Siesta Key for over 30 years, and this is the first time that we have taken this kayak trip. I read the reviews, and we happily got Dan as our tour guide. He was a fantastic guide, and gave just enough instructions and help to keep everyone moving. He knew the area extensively, and had... More

I had a blast when I went on my kayak tour. The guide was really friendly and knowledgable, and the time just flew by! We were able to see several manatees too which was really cool.

Our family of four took the Mangrove tunnel tour with Dan. He was a great guide and helped us spot some manatees. It was our first kayaking experience, and after a few instructions from Dan, we felt like pros. It was the highlight of our stay in Siesta Key. Now that we are back home, we have been combing the...

Unique trip through not only the mangrove tunnels of Lido, but also Little Sarasota Bay. Our tour guide, Dan, was awesome! He went out of his way to give us the best trip possible. He really seemed to enjoy his job and the wildlife and got us up close to manatee and dolphins. The diving cormorants were hysterical. Tour was... More
