This experience is only possible by Kayak and requires the local knowledge of the area. You will immerse yourself into a relaxing paddling adventure exploring hidden locations and secluded beaches loaded with Sea Life. Our adventure takes us to a protected mangrove island and bird sanctuary. Here we often experience close encounters with Manatee, Dolphin and other Sea Creatures. Nearby we also venture to a hidden sand bar called Sharkers Island - it is at this location where we often encounter close up interactions with tons of different birds, fish, invertebrates and of coarse Dolphin and Manatee. The most popular part of this special experience is having the local knowledge of a guide leading you through the hidden Mangrove Tunnels. The later part of our eco-tour is a slow paced paddle through the Mangrove Tunnels where we experience a really cool vibe of paddling through a jungle rich with plentiful animal life. This is an Educational fun Experience for the entire family only possible by kayak and local knowledge of these hidden gems.
I provide a kayak, paddle, lifejacket and a dry-bag for your small personal belongings.
My kayak eco-tour literally takes place in the middle of PARADISE! We experience close up encounters with Dolphin, Manatee and other Sea Life Creatures. During the tour we spend time exploring the majestic Mangrove Tunnels teaming with wildlife and loaded with spectacular scenery. The mangroves are ONLY accessible by kayak. As a Coastal Systems - Florida Master Naturalist graduate from Florida State University it is a privilege for me to share my passion and expertise of the amazing eco-system that we have here in the Sarasota Bay. I have been guiding small private group tours in a variety of locations since 1996. My kayak tour is fun and safe for all ages and all skill levels!
