Turtle Beach is a great place to paddle! We start on the intercostal and paddle down a short canal to the Bay. We paddle around the mangrove islands of Jim Neville Marine Preserve and then through a few mangrove tunnels to a “secret” beach.  This beach is only accessible by boat so we may have it to ourselves.  Such a beautiful place for a quick swim or just stopping for a few moments to relax.

A beautiful and quiet paddle in Sarasota Bay with a great view of the Sarasota skyline. This area is home to lots of manatees and dolphins.

This is an easy paddle in the shallow open water, along mangrove islands. This area is frequented by manatees and the dolphins feed off the grass flats here.

If you are looking for a beautiful easy paddle near Lido Key, Longboat Key or downtown Sarasota, this is it.

If the winds are not favorable for your paddle, we will reach out with options to rebook, reschedule or refund.  We want to make sure you have a good time and are paddling in good conditions.

* We are so certain that you will see dolphins, manatees or both on this tour that we guarantee it (April-September).  If you don’t see them, we will issue a gift card so you can come back and try again.
