Owner description: 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

Top notch service from start to finish. Tom was excellent on the phone explaining everything well and quoting sound experience when we called when the weather was iffy before our morning tour. Our guide, Chris, gave us a great family adventure on June 12! We had 5 adults and 3 children (ages 5 and 9) and he was great with all of us! Chris had great knowledge about wildlife and area history, and answered all of our many questions. We saw manatees and many birds, and the mangroves were amazing! All in all, a great value for a memorable experience!

Other companies were taking out much larger groups - ours was small and the guide, Chris, made sure we all enjoyed our 2.5 hour tour concluding with the amazing mangrove tunnels. The time flew by. Brilliant!! Don't just rent a kayak, take this tour.

Had a wonderful tour with Chris! He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the features on land you can see from on the water. He certainly knew how to spot manatees and other wildlife in the water and in the trees. We had never kayaked in sit-on-top kayaks before, but they worked out just great. Would definitely do it again or rent kayaks from Sea Life to do our own exploring.

I had never been kayaking before and this was the BEST experience I could have ever asked for! Chris was an amazing tour guide. It was just myself and 2 girlfriends on his tour. He was funny and engaging. He gave us so much history and shared random fun facts. He was also very patient with gals who had never kayaked! On our tour we saw dolphins, manatees, lots of birds, an upside down jellyfish and great scenery! Seeing manatees in their element was something I will never forget! Chris gave us a few extra minutes there because we were so excited. The mangroves were breathtaking. Chris did everything possible to make sure we were all set through the narrow area. I will go back for sure and hope we get Chris again! Would highly recommend!

Had a great time with Chris as our guide. My son didn't think the trip was going to be much fun, but ended up really enjoying it. Didn't see any dolphins that day, but seeing several manatees and other wildlife was amazing. Very worthwhile trip.
