Overview

Small, personalized tour groups, updated equipment including new, light, fatigue-reducing carbon fiber paddles, comfortable and easy to maneuver kayaks....And still the lowest prices guaranteed. Just a few reasons to come kayaking (tour or rental) with Sea Life Kayak. Explore exotic mangrove tunnels, paddle among manatees, dolphins and much more...With the premier kayak company in Lido, Siesta, and AMI. The owners of Sea Life Kayak Adventures come from science and conservation backgrounds and are members/volunteers of several environmental and wildlife organizations. While other companies are herding dozens of paddlers onto the water, we limit our groups to enhance the experience of our paddlers and especially the wildlife, minimizing our impact on fragile ecosystems. We use top quality, comfortable and easy to use kayaks perfect for novices or pros (most paddlers are newbies which we love), and provide instruction before we launch. Manatees, dolphins, flying rays, flying fish, cormorants (swimming with us or even riding on our boats!), And much, much more can be seen up close. We believe in tailoring our tours to our clients and having fun! Kayaking is not just our business, it's our passion. Thanks-Tom and Lauri

By far the best and most informative kayak tour my family has ever been on. We saw dolphins, a manatee, and the so many kinds of birds. Hat off to Chris, thanks

Tour was led by Chris. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He was a good guide and conversationalist. He kept a keen eye out for wildlife and guided us accordingly. Tour was about 2.5 hours. Beginning kyackers will feel right at home.

Absolutely. They can either ride between 2 adults in a tandem kayak, or in front with 1 adult. Just give a call and we'll figure out which is best. Thanks

Absolutely. It will ask if you have kids in the tandem kayak on the sign up page

Not really. We are at a County Park, so there is no guarantee that staff will be available when you arrive...plus we may be sold out. The phone or online booking is best. Thank you
