Description

The Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Tour in Sarasota is a fun time for you to go on the water into the backwoods of Florida where a lot of tours do not go. You pilot the kayak by yourself, and you are taken out by a tour guide whose knows the area very well. The mangrove swamps are beautiful, you see a lot of wildlife, and you can snap many pictures.

The tour starts with a little primer on how to pilot the kayak. You are given all the safety gear that you need, and you are taught how to keep up with the guide. Even your kids could take this tour, and you must ask them if they have a kayak small enough for your kids.

The tour will take you through the mangrove trees to some stopping points that are really lovely. In fact, you might even run across Florida Panthers, exotic birds, and something called the swamp ape. This tour explains the history of the area, and you learn the ecology of the area at the same time.

You must get your tickets for this tour online right away, and you will find that you can enjoy this tour even more than most because of the way that it was put together. You start to have fun on this tour when you take a lot of pictures, and it is more interactive than riding on a boat.

The Mangrove Tunnel tour outside Sarasota is fun for the family, and you dive deep into the wilderness where a lot of people have never been.

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.
