Great kayak tour and guide

Todd our guide is a longtime native of the area and was both great fun and very informative. Great tour of nature areas at the south end of Siesta key. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing two and a half hours exploring the mangroves, watching the osprey and eagle and learning about the area. It is a low impact kind of day. The kayaking moves a very leisurely pace which is great. Bring your phone or camera for some great pictures. A bottle of water is also helpful to have along. Todd... More

We had Todd as our guide. He put his whole heart and soul into this trip aiming to please everyone. This is our second trip with them and we have had one other one in Anna Maria by far Almost Heaven is the best. He first helped the beginners learn the basics and we were off. He had bounds of...

My wife and I did the Lido Key mangrove kayak tour. It was fantastic! Our guide was Will. He was excellent. I would highly recommend this kayaking trip. Equipment was either new or is very well-maintained. The trip was about 2 1/2 hours. And again, the guide, Will, was informative and couldn't have given us a better experience. A+ all... More

We did the kayak tour through the mangrove tunnels after we took a brief kayak tour of the bay area. We saw many many birds and other sea life that Will pointed out to us. Will was our tour guide. We even spotted a bottle-nosed dolphin. The mangrove tunnels were especially fun. Working with Sarah through the booking process was... More

Took the 2.5 hour kayak tour w/Almost Heaven and it was great. Our guide Phil shared a wealth of knowledge about the area's ecosystem as we paddled through the bayous, mangrove tunnels and estuaries of the bay. A definite must do on a trip to Sarasota!

We had a wonderful time kayaking on Sarasota Bay and through the mangrove tunnels. Will and Phil were excellent guides--who took excellent care of everyone and shared many interesting insights. Highly recommended!

We absolutely loved our tour. Our group (aged 60, 50, 46, 44, and two 12 year olds, all with kayaking experience) thoroughly enjoyed every part of it, particularly (of course) the mangrove tunnels, as well as our guide, Will. We went this past week on a morning tour and the weather was beautiful, about 70 degrees and sunny. Here are... More
