Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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

What a lovely way to spend a morning in Sarasota. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip out with Tom this morning. I was a little apprehensive, this being my first experience of kayaking but with just a few minutes tuition I felt confident quickly. Tom is very knowledgable and passionate and we very soon witnessing dolphins. It was extremely informative and very relaxing. A small group also benefited the experience. At one with nature, it was great fun. Would totally recommend the experience.

My fiance and I spent an afternoon with the owner Tom discovering all of the amazing sea creatures in that area. Seeing (and smelling) the manatee was our favorite moment. We had birds that hitchiked on the back of our kayaks, sharks that cirlced us, and crabs that popped right onto the boats. So much fun and such a beautiful area.

Loved our experience with Sea Life Kayak Adventures!!! We have kayaked in the area with another company and there is no comparison, Sea Life is the best in the area. Tom, our guide and the owner of the company, was not only informative, he was a lot of fun to kayak with. His knowledge of the area and the wildlife was truly amazing and entertaining. His passion and enthusiasm for what he does makes him a very special guide. We were both touched by the concern and caring he showed to his clients. We highly recommend his company to anyone who wants a unique and memorable experience with nature. We are so happy we found Sea Life Kayaking and are looking forward to our next adventure with them.No wonder they are voted #1 on trip advisor!

What a fabulous afternoon on the water! My husband and I loved our kayak adventure here in Sarasota. Tom gave a us a great experience with his guided tour. He is very knowledgeable about the history of this area, as well as the sea life, birds, and environmental programs that all co-exist in this area. We learned everything from the original development of this area by Ringling, to what controls the mosquitoes, to what celebrities play here, to what wildlife make this area their home, to what programs are working now to help both plants and animals safe here. The size of the tour groups is small, creating a personal classroom. We learned a great deal, saw a great deal, and had fun paddling our way around this beautiful area. The perfect end to our tour was watching a dolphin jump and play extremely close to our group! We highly recommend kayaking with Sea Life and hope to experience it again on a future Sarasota visit.

My husband and I had such a great time on our Kayak tour. I had no idea how beautiful the mangroves were and how much fun we would have navigating through them. We even got an up close and personal sighting of a manatee and her baby, it was amazing, I've never been so close to sea life. They swam right under our kayaks!! Tom was a great tour guide, very friendly and took great care of us and our safety. We were lucky enough to have a private tour and he really let us go at our own pace and answered all of our questions. It was a beautiful and fun filled afternoon. I highly recommend it!
