What you'll do

You’ll arrive at Ted Sperling Park and meet up with the Kayaking SRQ crew. We then put everyone in the kayak they reserve and do a paddle lesson on the water. We are then off paddling the shallow waters of Sarasota bay searching for dolphins and manatees. Then we cool off in the shaded mangrove tunnels that wind around throughout the park. It’s definitely Sarasota’s Hidden Gem. Although never guaranteed, manatees and dolphins are spotted regularly and we do our best to find them. After kayaking the tunnels, guests can go across to the public beach for food and beverages. We also supply dry bags for phones and keys. ***Please note*** We will contact you once we receive your booking to find out your boat (Single or double) preference. If we do not reach you we will book a single or double kayak based on availability.

Where you'll be

You’ll be kayaking in Sarasota bay and Lido Key’s Mangrove Tunnels. These are trails in a beautiful mangrove forest with sea stars, whelks and fish of all varieties. Sometimes we encounter dolphins in the bay feeding or manatees hanging around some of the docks in the area.
