Took the two hour guided tour with Dustin in Lido Key through the Mangrove tunnels. What a great day. Dustin gave us a great tour introducing us to many of the of the birds around and explaining the history. Highly recommend this tour.
We booked a tour as we are not familiar with the area. We hoped it would be a good decision. And it was! Our guide Dustin was delightful, knowledgeable, humorous and personable. A great balance of teaching kayaking skills to the novice kayakers and giving...More
This was a perfect afternoon trip - it was a good length, not strenuous, and it didn't hurt that the weather was beautiful. Our guide Dustin provided a great balance between information, navigating us through the tunnels, and letting us enjoy the kayaking.
If you book with Adventure Kayak Outfitters, insist on a map and don't pay for a tour. My significant other and I took a tour with about 10 other kayaks. The guide told us that she had been in the Coast Guard for ten years,...More

Sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. Sometimes customers get lost in the
beauty of the mangrove tunnels and fall behind.

back and get you caught back up with the group....More

Has anyone been on Adventure Kayak Outfitters Mangrove Tour (10 Replies)
Hi everyone! I know that this company is in Sarasota/Siesta Key, but we will be staying on AMI. I am looking for a boat or kayak tour that will get us close to the manatees. If you have been on this tour, what did you think about it? Can an inexperienced kayaker manage the tour? If you have used a different tour group that you liked, what tour company did you use & what did you see? Thank you so much for your help!!! Any help/ideas are appreciated!

Hi! we used this outfitter BUT did not go on a tour, we rented the kayaks and went out on our own. We had a great time and it is NOT hard or scary at all. I am not particularly athletic and I managed great. We did not see any manatee in the area of the mangroves but I think it is hit or miss. Also, at a later date we kayaked from a different rental company on Siesta Key near Turtle beach. THERE we came across a whole pod of manatee it was great! either way the paddling is a fun way to get...More
