We never had kayaked before our guide (Jessica) was very helpful and we had a great time! Wish we would’ve saw more wildlife but could’ve been the time of day/year. Seeing the mangrove tunnels was really cool though. And learning about them from Jessica was interesting as well!

Mangrove kayak morning

paddle through mangroves was easy more strenuous paddle thru open water trying to find manatees. finally found one but couldn't stay too long in it's vicinity by then. Guide was personable and informative - her voice didn't always travel well to the back of the group and might have been better if she repeated things as people caught up but all in all a good experience. Loved getting closeups of very tame blue herons.

By far the highlight of our anniversary trip in Sarasota. Weather and the tour was beautiful, including a nice workout in the morning. Our tour guide Jessica was GREAT. She knows a lot about the area, not to mention she is hilarious. Totally wish we could have spent more time out there, too much fun. Definitely will be back.
