Adventure Kayak Outfitters Siesta Key, We booked a 9 am trip with our entire family of 10 people and we were thrilled! Dan is the bomb....go on early trip because the wildlife is more active. Dan was our guide and he was beyond spectacular. He was extremely organized and patient as we had 4 out of our group who had... More

Our guide, Phil did an outstanding job explaining the flora and fauna and how it affects the ecosystem. He worked hard to help us see a manatee and pointed out every bird and sea creature. Our trip through the mangrove tunnels was just fantastic. His focus on our having a fun time while remaining safe was evident. This was our... More

My husband & I did a 0900 tour with Dan a few days ago. He was very informative about the area and ecosystem. We saw lots of wild life, beautiful waterfront homes, mangroves, and even a few manatees (Dan said he arrived an hour early to scope out their location for us, which we thought was awesome). We had a... More

Spent morning on the water with Dan and had a great time. He was very knowledgeable about the eco-system. Did his leg work before our tour and made sure we got to see manatees. Mangroves were very cool as well. Highly recommended

Don't get me wrong, if you've never kayaked or boated in your entire life, this could be a nice visit. However the kayaks they give you are really wide (wider than I'd use when I was seven) so it's pretty much impossible to accidentally (or even intentionally) flip them in the water. The place itself is just super touristy and... More

We had a wonderful trip with Dan. The weather was iffy, but we managed to sneak the tour in between storms, and we had a wonderful time! We enjoyed a relaxing journey through the mangroves where we saw all kinds of wildlife. Dan was great about allowing us plenty of time to take pictures...he kept the tour at a great... More

Dan was a fantastic guide, very well versed in the local Eco-system. The dolphins and manatees were on vacation, but that didn't detract from the tour. Mangrove tunnels were great, but could be intimidating to the claustrophobic. Certainly worth doing the tour.

My husband and I went on the kayak tour through the mangroves and loved it! The manatees did make an appearance as did other wildlife. Dan led us through the mangrove tunnels, where I inadvertently took a refreshing but untimely dip in the water. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect day to round out our vacation. Thanks again, Dan!... More

We signed up and had Dan as a guide. He was very knowledgeable with the wildlife and the mangroves, as well as fun and entertaining. Price was reasonable. The rest is up to Mother Nature. :)
