Det skal I lave

You will meet your guides at Ted Sperling Park, the launch site for the famous Lido Mangrove Tunnels. After a short explanation of the equipment and the paddle, we will launch and practice our skills in a beautiful, shallow bay. Guides will be on hand to ensure that you feel comfortable. Their goal is safety and fun. Depending on weather conditions, we may paddle to the channel, which is lined with beautiful mansions. Although the houses are fun to look at, our real goal is to find manatees and dolphins. If we do come across them, we will keep our distance and watch them play and frolic. Occasionally, manatees will be curious and will swim up to us. It is such a special experience. Next up, we will head to the mangrove tunnels. We may take a short break at a private beach to stretch our legs before we head into the maze of mangrove tunnels. Your guide will help you navigate the tunnels, pointing out interesting information about the ecosystem and the animals in it. After paddling though the tunnels and to the hidden lagoon, we will head back to the launch.

The paddle boarding was very fun. Our guide, Gabby, was great. Very informative about the ecosystem and ensured everyone had a good time! Would love to do it again on our next trip to Siesta Key!

We had so much fun! Phil was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area. I highly recommend him and this tour. This was my favorite activity of the entire trip to Florida! It even exceeded the expectations of the skeptics in our group. Well worth the time and money.

It’s definitely a fun trip for beginners or people not familiar enough with the area to explore alone. I would do it again.

This was such a magical experience! We saw ten manatees right off the bat! The stand up paddle boarding was a little difficult for me at first as a first timer but Phil was extremely patient and made sure we all had the hang of it before we got going. Going through the tunnels of the mangrove forest and seeing starfish and crabs was a big highlight. Phil knew a ton about all of the wildlife and the area and it was fascinating learning about it. Thank you! Will definitely be back!
