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 did 2.5 hour tour from the kayak park on South Lido Key. The kayaks were nice 12' Ocean kayaks with nice seats and Chris our guide was super. He was knowledgeable about marine life we might see and where to look. The mangrove tunnels and a break on a sand bar in the bay along with close encounter with... More

This was awesome. The weather was beautiful which is a big plus but I feel we would have enjoyed it in any weather. A great way to spend a few hours. Just being in the water but also a wonderful learning experience. Our guide was Chris and he is fascinating. Done so much and knows everything. We really learned so... More

I've been on 1/2 a dozen or so kayak tours of the Lido Key and this was by far the best of the lot. Chris was a knowledgeable, personable, humorous guide and I highly recommend him for your tour experience. Enjoy!

This kayak tour was the highlight of my vacation. The variety of places that our guide, Chris R, took us to were so beautiful and we were able to view sea life and water fowl that we didn't see at other times on our vacation. The manatee were a highlight, as were the amazing mangrove tunnels. The tour guide gave... More

Our tour guide Chris was great!! We experienced a wonderful trip through the mangrove trees. We got a chance to see dolphin and came up close to a manatee. So worth the money!!!

We went on a couples tour. Our guide, Chris, was really friendly and funny. While we were kayaking there were 2 dolphins swimming along side us. It was awesome! Such a beautiful day when we went. We couldn't have had a better time. We are locals and this was our first time kayaking. It has inspired us to purchase kayaks... More
