Kayaking & Canoeing
Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Ecotour
388 reviews
Florida's mangrove forests form shady canals and tunnels that are ideal for kayaks, and the maneuverable craft of kayaking allows you to go where larger boats can't. This small-group tour explores the Sarasota Bay while searching for manatees and dolphins, and then goes deep into the mangroves to spot even more native plants and wildlife. With a kayak guide to lead the way, you can also learn paddling techniques that come in handy.

Very excited to have a state park that offers many levels of hiking trails. We enjoyed a very mild hike with our family-easy for all ages. The canopy and bridge were a hit.

I saw plenty of alligators and the area itself was beautiful. There are many birds as most people have mentioned. The canopy was not too impressive in my opinion. It isn't in the treetops early. I went there early in the morning at 8AM since it was so hot. I wanted to rent a

This was our second visit to the Park. There were not as many shore birds around as our visit the previous April, but still had a nice time photographing birds. We will be sure to take the tour boat on our next visit.
