Great tour - knowledgeable guide, Will! Nice, relaxing day on the water Traveled around the bay and through 3 mangrove tunnel paths. Manatee, dolphin, jelly fish, starfish, crabs, birds, fish - a whole marine experience!

We went on the mangroves tour. This started off with an hour or so on the main body of water and then an hour or so through the mangroves themselves. We saw about 3 manatees on the open water (although they did say that many was rare). The tour guide provided information about the area and water throughout and was... More

The tour was very good. Will (our guide) was very knowledgeable, interesting, and funny. My wife, 2 kids and I all loved the tour. I would definitely recommend it. Also, it worked out for us being one of the first on the water. If you don't mind getting up early on your vacation, I would do that.

My family and I took the tour with Todd and had a blast! He was very knowledgable about the marine life and the history of Siesta Key and Sarasota. He kept us say on the waters while keeping us engaged with his easy humor. We had a great time and can't wait to do the tour again!

This wasn't my first time Kayaking in Sarasota but it was by far the best. It was my wife's first time and we had so much fun. We did the south Lido Beach tour and went through the mangroves. Although we didn't see any dolphins or manatees but the experience was wonderful and I would totally do it again

Chose this tour company because of the reviews and the fact they seemed to be the first tour company out in the morning, 9am. They were very prompt and organized. Our guide Todd, was very knowledgeable, but not the friendliest guide I have experienced. Not only did he cut the tour short by a half hour, when we spotted dolphins... More

Guide Will was very knowledgable about the area and provided a great experience for our group of 16. The Mangrove tunnels were very interesting and challenging to navigate. Later in the day, Will even found my water camera I had lost during the trip.

Our small group of 5 adults had a great time in the kayaks with our guide Will. Immediately after getting afloat we spotted a couple of dolphins in the waters next to Otter Key. Then after a leisurely paddle up a canal we found two manatee floating in the afternoon sun and snorting for air at the surface. Will was... More

I was trying to think of something to do to celebrate my 70th birthday that my husband, three adult children and three grandsons would all enjoy. I made the right choice with Almost Heaven kayak tours. Our weather was perfect and our guide Will had just the right balance of humor and wisdom to make the trip fun and educational... More
