Hi there. Our Lido Mangrove Tunnel tour is our most popular tour because of the incredible canopy covered kayak trails through a Mangrove forest! The Siesta Key Tour is beautiful as well, but there are no Mangrove Tunnels... More

We booked it like the day before, so I don't think there's a line for it. There was only one couple who went with us on the morning trip so it was more of a personal tour.
