About our Guided Tours
We are passionate about the environment that we work and play in. A lifetime of paddling these waters has built our family of guides into an unmatched source of local knowledge and ecological expertise. Each of our tours has been crafted and curated to provide a deeply engaging, unforgettable experience.
We launch tours from several locations in Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Lido Key, Sarasota, and Bradenton, depending on the conditions and wildlife trending at each area. Each place has its own special quality and we pride ourselves on knowing each of them very well! We often spot wildlife on our guided tours (our guides know just where to look!), but even more important than what we see on the tour is how we feel throughout the entire adventure. Treating every guest like a family friend is our specialty and we take genuine pleasure in putting smiles on faces every day.
We truly believe that our long tradition of providing top-notch guided experiences has helped make the world just a tiny bit happier. It is our hope that you feel a bit of that same joy after having shared an authentic Florida experience with us!
