We go to Sarasota quite frequently to visit my parents. On our last trip my sister suggested we do a kayak tour of the mangroves. Hands down one of THE BEST things I've ever done in Florida. The sea life we saw was amazing. Dolphins swam near our boats! Cormorants swam in and under and all around us. We examined all sorts of mollusks and birds and Floridian creatures (the manatees had migrated because the water was too cold). There are a lot of tour operators out there. We used a set of guides who are very eco-friendly. Chris and Kris of Biotica Tours gave us an amazing trip and I'd highly recommend them to anyone. http://www.bioticatours.com I'm sure some of the others are just as good (be warned, we saw some tour operators doing things against locally established guidelines for the preservation of the mangroves), but whoever you choose you'll have an amazing visit if you kayak the mangroves. It's a fun alternative if you've had enough beach and pool (and I know that it takes a lot to get tired of that!). My seven year old son kept asking "Is it over yet? Is it over yet? Because I don't EVER want this kayak ride to be finished!" Right there. Money well-spent. report a problem
