Sarasota Bay Kayaking

We will meet at Ken Thompson Park and your equipment will be ready and waiting for you to begin your adventure. We provide a quick overview of the area and needed safety equipment before you set off to explore on your own. In our experience, two hours is plenty of time to explore the area and find wildlife.

This quiet bay is located right near downtown Sarasota and is home to beautiful grass flats and is a favorite spot for manatees and dolphins.

From the launch it is just a short paddle to find some amazing wildlife.

Dogs are allowed on the equipment at this location. If you chose to bring a pet, please bring a life jacket for them!

What can we expect to see at this location?

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.

Are reservations required?

Yes, please make reservations ahead of time.

Can we rent for longer than two hours?

Yes, if you want to explore for longer or have a fishing day, call us to find out about longer rental period.
