What to expect...

On the Mangrove Kayak Tour, your guide will lead you through the nooks and crannies of this salty paradise, explaining the wildlife, history, and stories that will have you smiling through the whole trip. This guided mangrove tunnel kayak tour is a nature-lover’s tour!

The best place to kayak through mangroves around Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island is the Sister Keys, a group of four mangrove islands covering nearly 75 acres of stunningly restored coastal wetlands, including mangrove forests and tidal salt marsh habitats. Birds, dolphins, manatees, and loads of other wildlife live around these islands and may come out to say hello during your mangrove tour.

As you kayak through mangroves, you’ll take in beautiful views of downtown Sarasota and fish-filled seagrass flats before stopping at the Sister Keys sandbar – a perfect place to stretch your legs and look for conchs, crabs, and other wildlife.

Get ready for this relaxed adventure and check mangrove kayaking off your bucket list!
