Tour description provided by Viator

Come along on one of Sarasota's most popular outdoor activities, a guided eco-tour by kayak, which introduces you to these Florida waters from a new perspective and gives you the chance to spot dolphins and other wildlife. Paddle through beautiful mangrove tunnels, bays, and estuaries with an adventurous guide, a professionally trained local with extensive knowledge of the Sarasota environment. With a mantra of 'no worries, have fun,' this tour is a relaxing and educational way to spend a morning or afternoon on the coast. Select a departure time when booking.
Your tour begins at a central location in Sarasota, near Lido Beach. After launching the kayaks, your guide provides a lesson on paddling and safety before leading you on a narrated trip around the bay in search of manatees and dolphins, a common sight in these waters. Then head through shady tunnels where you will see more wildlife as you kayak under an amazing canopy formed by mangroves. The kayaks are easy to manage and very stable, and they feature a hull shape that increases glide and ease of paddling. Life jackets and paddles are provided.
