“Mangrove Tunnel Sarasota. This was our first time kayaking didn’t know what to expect, but we had such a great time. It was overcast on the day but that was a blessing in away as you are in open water for part of the experience. The guide was very knowledgeable, encouraging and comical. we were booked in for a 2hrs tour but in fact it took 2.5hrs. The mangrove tunnels are awesome and test your kayaking skills. Next year we will be going back…” – leesmithlsx
“What a great experience! The guides are easy going and very informative. The mangrove tunnels are awesome!!! We got to see a female manatee and its pup while we were kayaking. Great first time experience for all ages.” – Christina D.
“It WAS the best day ever! Their advertising doesn’t lie! It was super easy to reserve (you have to reserve in advance, because Park regulations do not allow cash business to be transacted on Park property), the kayaks were ready to go with life vests provided, and staff were awesome. What made it the BEST DAY? We saw a mama dolphin and her calf, and a manatee surfaced right under my kayak! WOW!!! Highly recommended!!” – Pat Clinton Sullivan
