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 my first tour with Sea Life and Chris was our tour guide. This was my wife's second time with Sea Life and Chris. Chris did an amazing job of making everyone very comfortable with the kayaking experience. We only saw a quick glimpse of a manatee but saw plenty of bottlenose dolphins. Chris has great knowledge of the... More

Chris did an excellent job on our tour this morning. He was friendly and very knowledgeable about the marine life in the area. The tour was very easy to book online! I would highly recommend Sea Life Kayaking.

My wife and I took this tour which lasted about 2 1/2 hours. Our guide, Chris, was outstanding! We were a group of about 10 and he kept us together and watched over us like a mother hen but allowed the freedom for us to explore on our own. The tour it self was great! Although we did not see...
