We had a great time! Dan was a great tour guide. He was full of information and was really determined to find manatees and Dolphins. We saw both and it was amazing! The water was up really high so it made the tunnels a little tough to navigate. But Dan made it really easy to move around and was super... More

Our tour guide Dan was great as he told us about the different wildlife and how the mangrove tunnels were formed. We saw 7 manatees and 7 dolphins, some jellyfish, black crabs, jumping fish, and the mangrove tunnels. Great way to start the day

Be sure to remember who your guide is and what company you are with as there are a few there. Dan was a great guide,... More

Wonderful tour of the Mangrove tunnels and the bay! Dan was an awesome guide and we were able to see dolphins, sting rays, lots of birds. It was a perfect day to paddle the bay area and Dan was entertaining, safe and knowledgeable.

Dan is the man! We had such an awesome time on his tour through the mangroves and around the bay. He is super entertaining and very knowledgeable about all sorts of marine life. We saw manatees, dolphins, nesting osprey, starfish, sea sponges, egrets, crabs, jellyfish, countless species of fish.... And more! This tour is easy for any skill level and... More

What a great adventure through the Mangrove Tunnels of Sarasota! Our guide, Dan, was funny and knowledgable about the wildlife in the area. Not only do you go though the Mangrove Tunnels, you will also look for Dolphins and Manatees! Well worth the money! Don't forget to bring sunscreen!!!!

After lunch at O'Learys, we kayaked for over two hours in Sarasota Bay, guided by Dan, who led us, with commentary, around the bay and through the mangrove passages. We highly recommend this tour!
