Awesome tour and guide!
, Jun 2021
Garrett was a great guide! He was so patient with our group (as most were beginners), very knowledgeable and fun. Such an awesome experience, we will be spreading the word about these guided tours around our hotel, Lido Beach Resort. Thank you, Garrett!
Great experience

We had a great time on the water, even though going through passage was a bit challenging for us beginners, the instructor was by our side and made it easy. Great activity for everyone!
Fun, educational and environmentally friendly.

We had a wonderful time kayaking in the mangrove tunnels and saw quite a few manatees and lots of different species of birds! Jessica our guide was fun and knowledgable and made sure our group stuck together. Highly recommended! Great for all ages and something different from beach combing. We learned all about mangroves and the history behind the tunnels. The tour was just the right amount of time and a nice was to be outside but not in the blazing sun as we coasted through the mangrove forest. It felt like the spring break beach goers were miles away.
Fun in the Sun

Definitely had a great time. Our guide, Jessica, was awesome. She was personable, funny and a great teacher. The entire out there was an adventure and well with the money. I’d definitely do this again.

Jessica- Awesome Tour Guide!

My wife and I are inexperienced kayakers, and really enjoyed our tour. Jessica, our tour guide, did an awesome job of providing great info about our natural surroundings. We moved at a leisurely pace and were able to comfortably navigate the beautiful mangrove tunnels. Jessica remembered our names, and most of the other 13 folks. Highly recommend both Jessica and Sea Life Kayak Adventures.
Great day on the water!

We had a wonderful time with Jessica on the Kayak tour. She was hilarious, but also very knowledgeable about the sea life around the mangroves. The whole checkin and check out process was easy and relaxed. I would definitely recommend this excursion and this tour company!
