A wonderful tranquil couple of hours spent in and out of the mangrove with Phil, who was not only an exceptionally knowledgeable guide but great company. No dolphins or manatees but so what! We were accompanied by 3 cormorants most of the way , who were happy to be our buddies taking advantage of our paddles stirring up the fish.... More

We have gone on kayak excursions with this company several times. The owner arrived at the arranged time with a truck carrying both single and double kayaks. These kayaks had comfortable seats with pedal adjustments for height differences among the users. He gave some elementary instruction at the landing area before helping everyone get into their kayaks. He led us... More

Tour guide: Will Awesome weather, very knowledgable guide, made for a wonderful morning! Hope to do this again, the mangrove tunnels were amazing! I was surprised by all the starfish living on the mangrove roots.

We have been on a kayaking trip with Almost Heaven every time we visit AMI / Longboat Key. They are by far the most consistent in their delivery of a high quality, informative, safe and fun kayak trip. We went on the Lido Key (Mangrove Tunnels) tour with our guide Will. We saw frequently saw dolphins and a fleeting glimpse... More

So glad we spent the morning on the 2 + hour Kayak tour through the Lido Mangroves. We didn't get to see any dolphins or manatee sadly but so much of nature in general. It was an easy pace- good for new or experienced. The mangroves were the best part- could have kept doing that for another hour! Would definitely... More

I found these guys on TripAdvisor so was fairly confident they would be good. Booked over the phone and received all the details and information I needed including good directions to the rendezvous. Our guide was Will, who was really informative, had a good sense of humour and knew the local area and wildlife. We managed to see Manatees and... More

Will was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable of the area and wildlife. This was our 2nd time taking this tour through the mangrove trees... what a treat! We loved it. We'll be back again. Definitely recommend this company.

This was our 3rd or 4th time kayaking with them. Always WOW! We did the Lido mangrove tour. Our guide, Will, was fun, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the area, the eco-system, wildlife. This tour lasted just over two hours. And we saw several manatees, dolphins. Even had a cormorant hitch a ride on the bow of our kayak. This... More

My boyfriend and I have gone so many places and done so many things during our stay in this area like a Rays game, a concert, Top Golf in Tampa, out on the town in St Pete, shopping, etc but this was by far the best part of the trip. Will is so knowledgeable about nature. The dolphins and manatees... More
