I Kayak Sarasota Debuts New Free Guided
South Lido Mangrove Tunnels Kayaking Tours

Enjoy Dolphins, Manatees, Fish and Other Natural Wildlife on Your Exciting Sarasota Tour

SARASOTA, Fla. – January 10, 2012 – It's time to go wild in Sarasota. I Kayak Sarasota is offering locals and visitors a free two-and-a-half hour guided kayak tour of the area's finest wildlife location. All you have to do is rent a kayak to participate in the ride.

“Guided kayak tours are a really fun way to get close to the wildlife that calls our community home,” said Bob Nikla with I Kayak Sarasota. “Best of all, our guided tour of the South Lido mangrove tunnels is free with the rental of the kayak.”
The Little Sarasota Bay and the exotic mangrove tunnels are a great place to see the wild side of Sarasota. Take to the water with playful dolphins, jumping fish, nesting birds and maybe even a manatee or two.

A two person guided tour that normally runs $110 is only $65 through I Kayak Sarasota – a more than 40 percent discount off the regular rental price. Meanwhile, a single person kayak rents for only $45. Best of all, even while guests save money on the kayak rental, the price of the guide tour with local experts is absolutely free.

“This is a perfect weekend adventure for the family, because it is open to adults and children alike,” Nikla said. “Plus it is a great workout paddling to enjoy all the great wildlife areas.”

All of the sit-in kayaks come with coast guard approved life vests and whistles. I Kayak Sarasota is also a perfect adventure trip for groups and business team building activities.

“Get the New Year started right by enjoying the best guided eco-tour in Sarasota,” Nikla said. “You will see some amazing sights that you never thought were right outside your door.
