Has anyone used Adventure Kayak Outfitters?

Hi everyone! I know that this company is in Sarasota/Siesta Key, but we will be staying on AMI. I am looking for a boat or kayak tour that will get us close to the manatees!! If you have been on this tour, what did you think about it? What did you see? Can an inexperienced kayaker manage the tour? If you have used a different tour group that you liked, what tour company did you use & what did you see? Thank you so much for your help!!!

Any help/ideas are appreciated!

You might check out

www.kayakfl.com great company

You don't have to be experienced to take a guided kayak tour..they give you a tutorial before you go out.

They are everywhere. Can't promise manatee. But plenty of dinosaurs along the way

We used adventure about three weeks ago and they were great! There was me and my boyfriend, the guide who was awesome, and two other people. We both did the two person tandem. We were in the little sarasota bay off of bird key, it was great! The guide, whose name has slipped my mind, dove in and got sea urchins, hermit crabs, conch shells, and sea cucumbers for us to hold. We didn't see a manatee, it just wasn't our lucky day, but they're absolutely there. We did see a dolphin. Only about two yards in front of us. It was great!!! We went through the mangroves too. Which was neat as well.
