What a fantastic experience!! From the moment we walked up and found Kim, we knew we made the right choice amongst all other tour groups. SUPER friendly, helpful, and organized! Greg was a great tour guide, offering colorful antidotes and facts about the area and his connection to the area. Truly made you feel like you were a friend visiting. You can tell these folks love and appreciate what they get to call “work”. Would HIGHLY recommend them!
Great tour of the mangroves with Greg. As a local, he was able to tell a lot of history and all about the ecosystem. A definite “must” for a trip here!

We just finished our 930am Tuesday guided kayak tour with Greg. His wife, Kim, was incredibly accommodating when we called yesterday to book. Kayaks are in good condition and we were offered waterproof bags. Recommend water shoes, hat, sunglasses and a waterproof camera. Lather with sunscreen as you'll be out on the open lake for more than half of the tour. We had about 10 people on our tour, so it was easy to chat and keep into a tight group. Greg gave us a great tour. The waters were beautiful, cool and clear. We quickly found a small group of 3 manatee along the docks. Greg taught us about manatee and the best way to track them in the water. We were then off to the mangrove tunnels. The black crab were out in abundance and the thousands of jellyfish have returned to the lake. Highly recommend this company.

My boyfriend and I went on this kayaking tour as a part of a last minute get away only to discover the waters in the area had been affected by red tide. So unfortunately not much wildlife to be seen this time. Despite this, Greg was a great guide and made sure we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. He was knowledgeable and experienced and knows his way around those waters well. He provided us with wonderful history of the area and great stories as we kayaked through the bay and beautiful mangrove tunnels. We will definitely come back and tour again, once the tide has gone!

Went out today it was an awesome trip!
Had such a blast! Our tour guide Greg was great! Really nice guy, super knowledgeable, and very welcoming. Supplied us with dry bags for our phones, sunscreen, keys, and other personal belongings. Offered us and had water available too. It was our first time kayaking through the beautiful mangroves. Such a peaceful and tranquil experience. From start to finish we had so much fun paddling and winding through the key. Got to see some wildlife which was really cool. Greg as a local had such interesting information about the incredible Sarasota area. Kim is wonderful and booking was simple and easy. Free parking, restrooms, and outdoor showers are available and easily accessible. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an awesome experience at a great cost!

We had such an amazing experience, we rented twice this past week from Greg and Kim, while on vacation in Sarasota. They were absolutely fantastic! We had an amazing experience while out on the water, kayaking through the mangroves was a new experience for us, it's so peaceful! We saw dolphins and got to 'play' with a family of manatees, they hung out with us for quite awhile, not something we get to do here in Kansas. We'll be back!!
I can't even begin to thank Greg and the whole team. We had such a great time and learned so much about the mangroves. We were fortunate enough to see Manatees and could not have asked Greg our guide for a better trip.

We had a blast with Kim and Greg during our tour into Sarasota Bay and the incredible mangrove tunnels! We loved the kayaking then seeing a mama manatee and her calf, but we also appreciated the historical knowledge of the area, your environmental awareness and the sea life education you provided for us... with 4 kids (ages 8-15), that is no easy task!! We thank you for an amazing day - you guys rock!!

This kayak trip was awesome. My wife and I chose the tandem kayak and Greg was our guide. We were fortunate to paddle up on two dolphins heading in the same direction. We were with them for a good 20 minutes while they swam all around us sometimes within 15 feet of the kayak. We then went into the mangrove tunnels for more nature sight seeing with birds and different fish. The kayak was easy to navigate and paddle and very stable. Greg grew up in the area and was extremely informative about the mangroves and the entire Sarasota area. We highly recommend Kim & Greg for your kayak adventure in Sarasota.

Kayaking SRQ is such a great time! We saw manatees, dolphins, cormorants, pelicans, osprey, and millions of fish! All of the wildlife gets so close! It’s an unreal experience. Kim and Greg are wonderful guides and they know so much about the area and the wildlife, they even give detailed descriptions of the history of the key! Anyone traveling to the Sarasota area should do their best to make a stop at Kayaking SRQ!

Greg is so knowledgeable of the area! Not only did he provide facts and history, but put his own personal spin by telling stories of his family and their history in Sarasota! We had a great time and look forward to renting kayaks in the future. And we were super lucky to get to see multiple dolphins right in the first seconds of our tour! We must have watched them for a good 20 minutes. Awesome sauce!

Take this tour and you won’t be disappointed! Between the the knowledge of the area and funny stories not to mention all the little surprises along the tour that you may see, Just want to mention that Greg is one of the kindest business owners I have ever encountered!! One of the guys on our tour has Parkinson’s. Most people would just do the tour and get done. Not Greg! He noticed that this gentleman was falling behind and quietly circled back and tied his kayak to his and pulled him through the whole rest of the tour !! Then helped him stand and get out of the kayak when we were done. ! Kept telling him don’t worry I ‘ve got you and there is no rush!! The most kind and caring tour guide you will ever meet!! ��

He knows his biz and was able to explain the history of the area. Navigating through the mangrove tunnels was quite an experience! I highly recommend this tour.

Every time someone says they're going to the Siesta Key/Sarasota area I recommend this tour to them. Greg and Orlando took us on an AMAZING kayak tour where we learned a lot about the local wildlife. The coolest part by far was getting to paddle through the mangroves and seeing everything up close. Not only is Greg super knowledgeable about the area and the animals in it, he is also really dedicated to finding as many animals as possible for his group to see. While we didn't get to see any manatees on our tour (even manatees have slow days, apparently), both Greg and Orlando did their absolute best to find them (and were obviously disappointed when they couldn't)- all while keeping us entertained with their great stories!The tour is the perfect size to be able to go with either a friend, a family, or a group while at the same time being able to hear everything that's said. You spend a lot of time on the water, but it's shallow most of the time so it's a pretty easy paddle. Also birds dive around you and swim under your kayak to catch fish, which is super cool.

Went kayaking yesterday with Greg and had an amazing time! I've been going to Siesta Key for 12 years now and this is absolutely one of my favorite finds! Greg was so fun and easy going and told us so many interesting things about the area! Despite the late season and red tide going on he still found manatees (they came right up to our kayaks!) We will definitely make this a staple in our annual trip down to Sarasota and would encourage others to do so. Can't ask for more in a tour guide! Thanks Greg!

I would recommend this tour to anyone; particularly nature lovers. Greg is an incredibly enthusiastic guide who shares his passion amazingly. He knows the ecosystem like the back of his hand.For someone like me, who has never been near salt water, Greg gave a great introduction to sea life. It was amazing to learn so many fascinating facts about plants and animals I have never seen.IF I COULD GIVE TEN STARS OUT OF 5, I WOULD!!!Thanks for a great tour Greg.

Greg was so outgoing and so eager to make sure that we were able to see some action out on the water! He even went out of his way to get us out on the water earlier before large crowds of kayaking tours came through. I would defiantly suggest calling Kayaking with Greg rather than kayaking with such large tours, you are able to see so much more and actually able to hear all of the awesome facts that Greg knows about the life we see on the tours. Thank you again Greg!! We WILL be back!

We had a great time touring around Lido Key with Greg. He is an extremely knowledgable guide, had a ton of great stories, and seemed really passionate about respecting wildlife conservation. And, I noticed that he was always making sure everyone was ok...just a really nice guy. We saw him on a nearby beach the next day, and he was just as friendly and warm. I highly recommend Greg's tours!

Greg is an amazing tour guide. His passion for the water and wild life allows for a truly educational experience. The Man Grove tunnels are a must see while visiting Sarasota. You will be talking about this for many years to come. Enjoy!!!!!

“We were so fortunate to find Kayaking SRQ, LLC with such a knowledgeable tour guide like Greg Gregory. Our young son really enjoyed seeing all of the sea life such as starfish, dolphin and manatee in the natural mangrove settings around spectacular Sarasota.

I had no idea that you could do tandem kayaking and that was tricky for us, but again, great to have a patient and friendly tour guide wiling to coach us through paddling and maneuvering things.

It’s a must do for anyone and definitely family friendly plus a great way to see Sarasota and it’s unspoiled salt life.”
