On gorgeous but windy day, cool by Sarasota standards, my guide, Will, took me on a thorough tour of the mangrove tunnels. I was the only one signed up, but there was no scrimping on information and hospitality. Will was knowledgeable about the place, the flora and fauna, and the history. A very good day indeed.

Our guide, Will, was very professional and his knowledge of the local birds, plants and his knowledge of the area made the trip very personable. He made sure we were comfortable in our kayaks and showed us how to paddle them. The kayaks were well maintained and I felt very safe in them. I will use him again.

We arrived and was greeted by our friendly and out going guide, Phil. He was very thorough with explaining safety tips and what to expect during our tour of the waters and mangroves. Through out the tour Phil pointed out various birds, flora and fauna. During our 2 1/2 tour, he shared many interesting facts about the area. We kayaked... More

It was informative. Phil was our guide and he showed us all around. He was informative and a very easy personality to... More

We took the morning tour with Will as our guide. The day was gorgeous and we absolutely loved the whole adventure. It was nice starting out paddling in open water, in the bay headed for quieter canals. It gave us time to figure out how to paddle, as we're new to kayaking, and then to enjoy the freedom of the...

My first time kayaking today and Almost Heaven Kayak Adventures convinced a girly-girl like me to take this up on a regular basis. Very easy and relaxing. Saw mama and baby manatee. Our guide, Will, was very knowledgeable about the mangroves, birds, and history of Sarasota which made the trip even more enjoyable!
