... and made me feel very comfortable and welcome as a group of 1. :) Colin has had some fun adventures in life and shared some fun stories along with his impressive knowledge of the area in which we were kayaking.

We were also lucky enough to have dolphins swimming right by us, as well as a few very amusing encounters with cormorants successfully fishing under the kayaks - all of which delighted the kids!
Kayaking the Myakka River with Chris, a delightful professional biologist, was a fabulous education and adventure for me.

It was a great experience for the out of town visitors and I will definitely be back in my own kayak this summer to enjoy the tunnels and that little island I saw will be the perfect place to pull up for a picnic...

Kevin was a great tour guide as he was knowledgeable and patient with our lack of kayak experience.
We had a mix of paddle boards and kayaks and appreciated the smaller group as compared to some of the other tours.

Kayaking through the mangrove tunnels on Lido key is just perfect!
We are staying on Lido Key and have been out on the bay in kayaks, so some of what we saw on this trip was familiar.

One of the highlights was to be able to visit the small stretch of beach accessible by ww water and see the turtle nests - amazing Tip - bring a picnic - you can store it in the front of the kayaks
Fantastic experience (including those humorous jokes Lance tells) and would rent through Siesta Key Bike and Kayak again!

It's a whole different experience, closer to bone fishing since the kayaks can get into very shallow water and much closer to the mangroves than your standard charter.
Great morning kayak fishing on the bay!
