Larry was a superb host. His patient nature helped us get the hang of kayaking on a tandem boat together for the first time. He was full of knowledge and a great guide. Though we made a few wrong turns through the mangrove, Larry looked at it as an adventure. He is truly a great teacher. On our trip we saw a manatee, mangrove crabs and more. We definitely want to bring friends and do this tour again.
Awesome Mangrove!

I was searching for something to do in Sarasota and came across this tour. I was hesitant at first but decided to give it a try since most reviews were favorable. Our tour guide, Larry, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The mangrove tunnels were amazing plus we were able to see two manatees and cormorants catching fish. We were concerned about doing the afternoon tour due to the heat but being on the water with the breeze made it tolerable. Just remember to bring a hat, sunblock and plenty of water and you have a wonderful time. Don't hesitate, just do it!
