Kayaking in Lido Key
Right outside the hub of St. Armand’s Circle in beautiful Sarasota lays the beauty of Lido Key. Lido Key is surrounded by gulf waters and Sarasota Bay. In South Lido Park, the waters are calm and serene. There’s so much to see. Guided kayak tours through the mangrove tunnels are one of the top highest things to do here in Sarasota. Our kayak trips have something for everyone.
Sarasota Bay hosts about 140 bottle nosed dolphins that play in our waters. Manatees also call this home. They love it here because of the shallow waters filled with sea grass.
Kayaking is much more than just getting in the water and going. Whether it be a guided tour, or a rental there are so many options for both.
- Our guided tours are fun for the whole family. We offer both Manatee and Dolphin tours which allow you to experience dolphins & manatees up close and personal in their native habitat. Our native Floridian guides are both informative and entertaining.
- The Mangrove Tour allows you to explore the shallow waters of Little Lagoon and navigate your way through the maze of exotic mangrove tunnels that lead you into the sun-filled grass flats of brushy bayou and Big Grass Lagoon. There is truly excitement around every corner, and the lush mangroves offer some shade to cool off from the sun.
- With a kayak rental the choice is yours. Renters have the ability to explore the open waters and the mangroves at your own pace. There is even a little sand bar. You can pull your kayak up and sit and watch boats go by, wade in the refreshing water, or catch some rays!
No matter how you spend your time here, the beauty and abundant wildlife will create memories to last a lifetime. Besides seeing dolphins and manatees, there are many different types of fish, crabs, starfish and beautiful native birds! It’s always an adventure with Adventure Kayak Outfitters
