Had a great time!! Javier was our tour guide and he was excellent!! So informative and willing to take our pictures etc. We saw Manatees close up!!! The private beach was beautiful too!!


Wow our tour guide Jacob went above and beyond!!! Awesome experience!! Jacob made sure we got photo opportunities and taught us so much about the local animals and mangroves!


Wonderful time of kayaking! Our guide, Javier, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer our questions and point out lots of neat things. We took our two children (ages 12 & 16) and they also loved it. Javier did a great job interacting with them and making them feel valued on the tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys being out in nature!


We had a great tour with Jacob! He shared lots of fun facts with our kids about the local birds and animals. We saw osprey and their nest and looked for manatees. We unfortunately had some low tide by the mangroves which made it hard to explore the tunnels but Jacob was great and adapted as he went to make sure we had a great experience.


Very pleasant and easy going. The stop at the beach to collect shells was a wonderful moment. Beautiful beach, for it was all natural surroundings with no restaurants or structures. Just nature. Javier was a fun and kind mannered guide.


We had such a wonderful time with Javier on the Eco tour. Great laughs and in-depth knowledge of the landscape. It feels incredibly valuable to connect with this beautiful landscape. We enjoyed very-close sights of the Osprey, pelicans, and various fish (slap fish). I can’t recommend enough how valuable it is to enjoy nature on a kayak with an excellent host.


We had a great time with Geoff and Javier as our guides. We learned a lot about the local area and the wildlife. We are glad we did the guided tour! I would recommend this for families.


This company is outstanding and aim to please. The Eco tour is well worth it! I (dad) took my 18 and 16 year old daughters. Our guide was Kelly Rhea, who was AMAZING! Great guy, good stories, very personable, knowledgeable, and guided us from a naturalist point of view which I appreciated. So fun. Highly recommend Kelly. The owner was also VERY helpful with making adjustments with our schedule and party. The tour was just the right amount of time (2hr), great break from the beach, good way to get your arms moving a little, and your head in a relaxed space. I am so glad I booked with Kayaking SRQ, ended up in with Kelly, and made this a part of our family memories. They also provided water, a dry bag for phone and keys no additional charge that was helpful. I ended up taking a bunch of photos of the family.


Jeff was incredibly well-informed and made a genuine effort to interact with his customers. Our experience was truly fantastic, and we are definitely planning to explore the Lido Key kayak tour in the near future.


Jeff was amazing on our tour! Very nice and knowledgeable of the area we thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour. Would recommend and would definitely do again!
