Myself, my wife and 16 year old twins took this kayak tour and we were absolutely delighted with the quality and professionalism of the team at Almost Heaven - easy to book, extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Will and Todd were great to be around and performed like a double-act for the 2.5 hours it lasted - I strongly recommend this... More

THIS TOUR WAS AWESOME!! Even my 9 year old could manage to keep pace as a first timer, do not be intimidated. It was over a full 2 1/2 hour trip, great value for the cost. Very accommodating for very young as we had a 4 year old, but equally engaging for adults. Good mix of historical and ecological. HUGE... More

Our family had a great time paddling around Lido Key with Almost Heaven. Our guide, Will, was extremely knowledgeable and patient. We definitely saw things that you just can't see from a car, or walking around. This was our second year doing the tour with Will, and we are planning on returning next year!

Had yet another wonderful adventure with Almost Heaven. We've done this seven years in a row and always go with Almost Heaven. We've had a lot of different guides and they are all great hosts and storytellers. Today we had Will and he was great. We usually have at least ten people and we all get the attention and assistance... More

Kayaking in the bay with Will and Todd was amazing! Todd and Will are great tour guides and were so knowledgeable about Sarasota, the wildlife and the marine life. We were able to see quite a few manatees in the open water which was so cool! The best part of the trip had to be the mangrove trees. The entire... More

A great way to spend a morning in Sarasota. Will was a fantastic guide; knowledgeable of area history, sea life & wildlife info, and made sure everyone in the group was having a wonderful time along the tour. A fun and interesting way to see parts of the area you can't see without being on the water.

We had a good time at Almost Heaven Kayak Adventures. It was easy to setup the event. They were good to work with from start to finish. We were to kayak at 1:00pm but they told us to arrive early, about noon, at 190 Taft Ave. We got there around noon and shortly got under way. We had a group... More
