    Kenny was an excellent guide- knowledgeable, engaging, amusing, and interesting. He is clearly a steward for the mangroves and life within it. Highly recommend

    The guide was great! The glow from the boat was neat. Communication and directions were spot on. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is that the water was murky the night we went so we didn’t see much of anything. It could’ve been a fluke, but it was somewhat of a let down.

    We spent a week on Siesta Key Beach and had a wonderful time. The highlight of the 8 days was our fun with Andrew at Sea Life Kayak Adventure in Sarasota. We spent 2 hours paddling around the bay and in the mangroves. We even got to spend time with around 4 manatee. That was sooooooooo cool! I highly recommend them!

    Amy was wonderful and showed us a ton of wildlife ! We had a great time and she personalized it for us. She even pulled a needle fish and crab out of the water in a little bowl for us to get a better view! Definitely recommending this to my friends!

    We travel often, and usually book local companies for our activities. This was honestly one of the best we’ve ever experienced! Tim our guide was amazing! We got to experience manatee so close we could touch them. 100% recommend this company!

    We had a wonderful experience kayaking the waterways of Blind Pass. Jeff, our guide, was terrific. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the birds and aquatic life, as well as lots of local history. He kept us entertained the whole way. A wonderful day on the water, highly recommend.

    We had an awesome time! We did the night kayaking tour. It was a beautiful night, but the best part were the tour guides. We had Kyle and John. They were very friendly and helped us look for fish. We saw some beautiful flamingos and lots of jumping fish. My friend and I are 70 and 74 and we loved it! We really appreciated John going out of his way to help us up and down the slippery stairs to get to the water and back up. I highly recommend doing this tour.

    Absolutely loved our kayak trip. Danny was incredibly knowledgeable, knows a ton about the ecology of the area, the wildlife, and you can tell he thoroughly enjoys sharing his knowledge. He is very friendly and I felt very safe and comfortable paddling with him. Kayaks were very very clean, very nice life vests-just a very very fun day! I absolutely recommend this company.

    An exceptional 2 hour paddle that provided some great views. Sit on top kayaks are so easy. If you're really lucky you'll have Craig as your guide...so friendly , knowledgeable, eager to share his passion for the history and nature of the area. He's also very safety oriented and will tailor your trip to your experience level. It should be FUN, not WORK. Reservations are a good idea.
    . Parking is free, there are clean restrooms on site and a nice little cafe to indulge since you burned a few calories :) Also, The Bay has a free performing arts space, playground, and beautiful(ADA) walking path along the water. ABSOLUTELY recommend.

    Pedal kayaking with Skye was amazing! Skye is knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and personable. He showed/pointed us to multiple birds, fish/jellyfish, manatees, etc! He also had snorkeling equipment and we had fun time exploring underwater world. Highly recommend Skye and his company!
