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

We had an informative and knowledgeable tour guide, Chris, who helped us to even find the manatees swimming in the area. He also took time out to make sure that we knew how to use the equipment, and to check that everyone stayed in the group. Just be sure to pack some snacks and water since there's a pretty, sandy...

Chris even dis covered an injured sea bird and rescued it! We stopped in the middle of Little Sarasota Bay on a sand bar to take a refreshing... More

Our guide "Chris R" was very good and was a wealth of local information. This is about the fifth time we have been in a Kayak in Florida. The mangrove tunnels were definitely the highlight for us as we would not have gone in on our own. we did see a manatee and it was quite close to me but... More

We wanted a guided tour and we definitely got one. Chris is incredibly knowledgable guide that shows you the ins and outs of the local ecosystem. We saw plenty of birds, fish, creepy little mangrove crabs and to top it all off two manatee! Amazing time! Thanks again Chris.

First off, it is a beautiful place to Kayak, Chris was out tour guide and he is really cool and professional. He was able to locate the manatees and dolphins in the water and was very informative about it. Very nice indeed.
