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.

We love visiting the sanctuary whenever we come to Sarasota. They have owls and hawks as well as the more typical "Seabirds". It's great to see these wonderful animals so well cared for.

Our trips to Sarasota always include a trip to Mote Marine Lab and a trip across the parking lot to Save Our Seabirds. Add a lunch a Nearby Salty Dog or the New Pass Grill and you have one of Sarasota's many perfect days.
