Welcome to Kayaking SRQ. It would be our pleasure to guide you through Sarasota’s hidden gems, the mangrove tunnels. Or if self discovery is more your speed, you can rent kayaks or paddle boards and head out with a map we provide. Whichever you prefer, we will make sure you have a safe and fun experience. Let us show you our home, backyard, and passion for more than 40 years. From children to the more mature adult, we guarantee the time of your life in Florida’s #1 Kayak Park!

Don’t worry, it may look complicated — BUT it is not! Kayaking is great exercise, relaxing, and a fun activity to do with friends & family! It is great for nature, animal, and photography lovers! Whatever the reason, we see it all, make sure to have your cameras ready!

Join us for Siesta Key & Lido Key Kayaking and Paddle Boarding!

Highly Recommended

The tour was awesome. We go every year in Florida and it is always a blast. All the guides are great, but Kinsey is one of the best guides we have had. He was so much fun, and so knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Beautiful trip!

Such a great paddle! Jeff and crew were thoughtful and caring and made sure we had everything we needed for our trek! We took along our 76 year old mom and she had a blast! Jeff is so knowledgeable about the area and clearly passionate about his tours! Absolutely recommend!!

Educational Kayaking Tour

A relaxing and educational kayaking tour. Our guide, Steffan Simmons, was humorous and knowledgeable. I truly enjoyed Steffan's knowledge and history of the Sarasota area and the impact of John Ringling on Sarasota. He also had a great grasp of the ecology of the area and its importance.

Mangrove Kayak Tour

Kinsey was an awesome guide. He managed our expectations which helped tremendously with the arachnophobia crowd, was fantastic at finding critters for us to meet and hold, and was wonderful at keeping the 5 and under crowd engaged. 100% would recommend he grows his beard a little longer.

Great Adventure

We rented two kayaks and had a great adventure. The mangroves were spectacular and we loved exploring the tunnels. We saw birds, small fish, jelly fish and more! Jesse was great launching us and explaining things. All in all, such a wonderful time! We highly recommend choosing Kayaking SRQ for your kayaking needs in Sarasota.
