Chris was our tour guide, and I would recommend taking the tour. We had people in our group from beginner to experienced and he made sure everyone took something from our trip. Even if you are experienced in other areas of the US take this tour! Learning about the wildlife and how the Lido beach area was formed and used was interesting. We had people in our group that needed a little help and he was right there. He also lets you have some freedom if you are not a tour person,. The view of how the 1 lives from the water was nice too. I have my retirement home picked out..... now only I need to win lotto.

We had a great time with iKayak. We had an up close encounter with a manatee. The Mangrove Tunnels were a blast. Thanks to Mark our guide who was both entertaining and informative. He made sure the trip was both relaxed and safe. Wonderful afternoon!

This was an great experience - well worth it. Lots to see and very informative. Our guide, Mark, was excellent - as a Sarasota native, knows the territory and history, and we were lucky to navigate the waters carefully to see the a family of manatees. I would highly recommend this experience.

The tour was great. Mark our guide was awesome. I had never kayaked before and it was very easy, would so do this again. We even say a manatee on our trip which was so cool. Do the morning tour, since it and #39;s Florida and it gets hot.

Saw dolphins swimming in pairs, lots of birds and sea life as we took the kayak tour with Mark. The mangrove tunnels are magical and you will be glad you brought a camera. There is nothing scary in the water. Alligators like fresh water and we were kayaking in salt water. Mark is a great guide funny! and a Sarasota native. This Mangrove tunnel kayak eco-tour was the highlight of our trip! Thanks to Mark, we also went up to the Great Bend Power Plant to see the manatees.
