We went on the mangrove tour today, Chris was a fantastic guide!
We saw a large group of Manatees, 6-8 of them. The mangroves were awesome, we would definitely take this trip again. Chris was very knowledgeable about everything we encountered. Thank you!!

Kayaking is always on our 'to do' list when we visit the US and especially Florida where the waters warm and wildlife rarely disappoints. We were staying just on Lido Key and booked an afternoon guided tour with Chris online the day before.
The car park at the small park at the south of the island has several kayak tour operators based there. Most offer a similar experience and we chose Sea Life purely based on reviews. We weren't disappointed. Chris is a great guide. Interesting and with plenty of tall tales, he escorted our group of half a dozen kayaks around the bay and into the mangrove tunnels.
The kayaks are easy to propel and manoeuvre with good padded seat backs. You can choose tandem or single and the launch ramp is easy too.
Despite Chris' best efforts, we didn't see any manatees or dolphins that day. We did see plenty of bird life including ospreys and heron and did get to stand up in the middle of Sarasota bay on a sandbar - which was surreal.
The mangrove tunnels are fascinating and a guide really helps when pointing out the wildlife and history of the area. If you want to just hire a kayak with no guide - I'd suggest you give the tunnels a miss and stick to open water.
We really loved this tour. We like kayaking anyway but Chris added a little extra to this trip and that made it special.
Great afternoon out in the bay.

This was an awesome morning for my girlfriends and I. Chris took our group out into the bay and then through the tunnels on Lido. He was amazing and remembered the entire groups names! Very impressive! Sign up was easy, location was perfect and it was a fabulous day! Thanks Chris!
