Tour guide Kelly was very personable and knowledgeable about the local environment and wildlife. He went out of his way to be sure we had the best experience possible. The tour was most enjoyable and educational. The mangrove tunnels were amazing. This was my first time kayaking....I'm hooked! There are many outfitters who serve the Lido Key/Bird Key area. I highly recommend this group.

My wife and I took the Kayak tour with Kelly out of Lido Park on February 18 2014. This was the second time that we have participated on this tour and were lucky enough to have had Kelly as our guide both times - this time fortunate enough to have a private tour. Kelly's high level of knowledge and professional manner once again provided a fantastic experience. This tour, with this guide, is highly recommended.

I truly enjoyed an absolutely inspirational and enriching trip through the mangroves of Sarasota Bay with our guide Kelly. I was most appreciative of and impressed with his knowledge and sincere respect for this very delicate habitat. We should always remember that while we are enjoying its beauty, we are their guest!

Feb 8, 2014 Tour guide Kelly kept it interesting even though no dolphins were sited and too chilly for manatees. It was so calming and nice just to be out on the water.

We had a great day kayaking the mangroves and padding around the shoreline of Otter Key between Lido Key and Bird Key. Kelly our guide was very knowledgeable about the local history and wild life. He is fun to be with and I think we got very lucky in getting Kelly as our guide. He is professional, considerate, and has a great sense of humor. It was a perfect day! We saw cormorants diving beneath our kayaks, osprey, osprey nests, urchin, jelly fish, breaching dolphins, sea stars, green heron, great blue heron, yellow headed night heron, ibis both mature and juvenile, red, white, and black mangrove trees. I loved naturalist aspect of this fun day on the water!

Great description of your tour! We do see an abundance of wildlife and we heard about the dolphins playing near by - this is an experience that is always a joy. So happy you experienced it. Paddle On!
