Attraction details
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

This is a "must attend" attraction if you are in Sarasota. Our guide, Chris, was extremely knowledgeable about the area's history and wildlife. My wife, son and I had an amazing time. Experience of a lifetime, a manatee swam right under our kayak, we saw a family of dolphins and many water fowl. Well worth the time and money.

I highly recommend this tour company and the guide Chris! My son (6), husband and I went on a tour with chris and he was fantastic (my son and I were in a double and my husband was in a single). He seemed to know ecological and historical facts about ever nook and cranny as well how to spot when a dolphin or manatee is about to appear. He is clearly an expert kayaker, is knowledgeable and incredibly likeable. Everyone on the tour had a fantastic time. He was able to adapt the tour so kayakers of all levels were satisfied. My son is still talking about our trip!
Definitely pick this group if you are considering it!

Outstanding time with guide Chris. With a group of 20, he was patient, attentive, story-sharing, informative and extremely pleasant. Helped us to find bottle-nose dolphin and a mom/calf manatees before bring us through two mangrove patches.

Our guide, Chris, was wonderful. We saw dolphin, a manatee and her calf and had an adventure through the mangroves. The day was perfect and the experience was more than we expected. Would recommend this tour to people of all ages who love nature.

Sea Life Kayak Adventures gave us a wonderful tour. Even had our granddaughter standing up paddling. She had previously done the paddle board so wanted to try it on a kayak. Nice kayaks, wonderful guide. Recommend.
