Overview

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 was a super fun outing. Our guide, Chris, was excellent. He took time at the beginning to make sure everyone was comfortable & settled in the kayaks. Then he spent the remainder of the time showing us the sights along the bay, teaching us...More

Had a great time! I was traveling with my Mom and 12 year old daughter and stayed in Sarasota. We enjoyed the kayaking so much, we went twice. Chris was very informative, fun and easy on the eyes. ;)

Four girls and so much fun! This is my second time and their first. We loved it. Very insightful and fun. Saw manatees, dolphins and other sea and wildlife. Chris rocked it out of the park yet again!

Thanks Chris! Manatees, dolphin, starfish, jumping fish, cormorants. Couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable, enthusiastic, caring guide. A perfectly enjoyable morning on the water. We’ve been kayaking for years, but he gave one of the best demos and verbal explanations of how to maneuver the...More

Chris was a great guide. Very personable and knowledgeable. We were lucky and saw a couple manatees. The mangrove tunnels were really cool too.

Absolutely. They can either ride between 2 adults in a tandem kayak, or in front with 1 adult. Just give a call and we'll figure out which is best. Thanks

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
