This was a great trip through the mangroves. We never did see a manatee or a dolphin but that isn't under the control of the tour company! I can't take stars away because we didn't see wildlife. The tour was well organized, well run, and a very good time. I do wish they had something early in the morning though.... More

From the moment we inquired about an eco jayak tour with this family operated business we were in. Rene was great with the maps and setup and Dan was so knowledgeable about manatees, mangroves, dolphins, and the jumping fish. Smiles, laughs, a great day. Thanks!

Great adventure! My 8 year old and 3 year old girls loved it! As a first timer myself, Dan our guide, made this an easy, fun experience! We started off with a manatee sighting. We saw a ton of birds feeding. They would swim under our kayak and pop up on the other side. I would recommend this to families!

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.
