Co będziecie robić

You will meet your guides at Ted Sperling Park, the launch site for the famous Lido Mangrove Tunnels. After a short explanation of the equipment and the paddle, we will launch and practice our skills in a beautiful, shallow bay. Karla and Aaron will be on hand to ensure that you feel comfortable. Their goal is safety and fun. Depending on weather conditions, we may paddle to the channel with a goal of paddling with manatees and dolphins. If we do come across them, we will keep our distance and watch them play and frolic. Occasionally, manatees will be curious and will swim up to us. It is such a special experience. Next up, we will head to the mangrove tunnels. We may take a short break at a private beach to stretch our legs before we head into the maze of mangrove tunnels. Your guides will help you navigate the tunnels, pointing out exotic wildlife as you pass. Everyone loves when finding giant hermit crabs and seastars along the way. After paddling though the tunnels and to the hidden lagoon, we will head back to the launch. Your hosts will text photos of your adventure for you to share with friends and family.
Other things to note
Kids welcome from age 3 and up. Kayaks and paddleboards can be combined on the same tour. If you need a different date, contact us at info@surfitusa.com or call 941-952-8245. We love family groups!

Gdzie będziecie

Once you arrive at Ted Sperling Park, you will be looking for Aaron and the SURFit van. Your guides will be waiting for you, with the equipment ready. Ted Sperling Park is a small kayak launch and is the best and easiest way to get to the mangrove tunnels. The mangrove tunnels are unique saltwater paths that wind their way through mangrove trees and to a hidden lagoon.

We absolutely loved the mangrove tunnels! We were bummed that we didn’t get to see any manatee but the tides were extremely low and it just wasn’t our day. Def recommend, even the most inexperienced kayaker would be fine in these calm waters.

Very nice tour of the mangroves and the bay. Our guide Mark was super nice, informative, and very patient for those who weren’t listening. Would defiantly recommend this tour to get away and enjoy a little exercise and the water.

This is a good tour but it’s not a true Airbnb experience. We booked and the experience noted a group of 4, but we arrived to be a part of a large 15+ people tour guide with guides who were not the host as stated and where it was clear other people had booked directly on a website. Just a note that this wasn’t the small experience we had looked forward to and expected.

This was such a great experience for my whole family. It was our first time kayaking but learned it quickly enough to start enjoying the scenery. The guide’s instructions were clear and was patient with us as we learned to kayak. He also shared some interesting facts about the area. The first mangrove tunnel was a little difficult to maneuver but it got easier as we went through the other two. Overall, a fun time for the whole family enjoying the outdoors and experiencing something new (for first timers like us) and a wonderful way to create memories.

Our family of three really enjoyed this tour! Our guide, Orion, was knowledgeable and was very helpful providing instructions to less experienced paddlers. Highly recommend this tour!
