Sarasota Bay Explorers
Sarasota Bay Explorers information
Under the supervision of marine biologists, boat cruises trawl a net and then examine the sponges, sea horses and various fish you catch. The marine safari (adult/child $45/40) heads out to Lido Key and nearby sandbars where participants get out into the grass flats to comune with crabs, sea horses and sea stars under the guidance of a marine biologist. It also offers guided kayak tours (adult/child $55/45). To get to Mote Marine Laboratory, head to St Armands Circle, take John Ringling Blvd north to Ken Thompson Pkwy; follow to end.
