Dolphin Tour Segment
Your Kayak Tour includes the dolphin kayak tour segment in the Sarasota Bradenton area allow you to enjoy one of the largest populations of bottlenose dolphins on both the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. Because of our shallow waters and grassy flats, many dolphin pods have chosen to live here year round. Bottlenose dolphins can be recognized by their curved dorsal fins and their short, stubby beaks (hence the bottlenose name). Did you know that they can travel at speeds up to 35 mph and that they never fully sleep? Dolphins are naturally social animals, and are known for their playful behavior. Our dolphin kayak tours offer a fun and informative way to watch them safely. No alligators!
See dolphins, manatees, other wildlife, and the exotic mangroves all included in one kayak tour. Our kayak launch location on Lido Key in Sarasota is just minutes from Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, and Venice.
