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 great family adventure! We rode tandem kayaks with our 6 & 8 yo daughters. Chris was kind, knowledgable and friendly. We were lucky enough to see several manatee - a welcome sight to all but one daughter who panicked and cried (reasonable! Those...More

I've lived in the Sarasota area for 23 years and up until we rented kayaks out on Lido Beach, had no idea there were mangrove tunnels to kayak through. What an amazing experience for our family. We didn't see any dolphins or manatee but thankfully...More

Absolutely. It will ask if you have kids in the tandem kayak on the sign up page

Not really. We are at a County Park, so there is no guarantee that staff will be available when you arrive...plus we may be sold out. The phone or online booking is best. Thank you
