Bob had two tandem kayaks waiting for us upon our arrival. We spent a wonderful day exploring in the mangroves, having a picnic on the beach and enjoying all the sights. We were lucky enough to get quite the show from dolphins too.

From my initial phone call inquiring about rentals to kayaking through the mangroves, Sarasota Paddle Board Company was amazing. I would definitely use this company again the next time we are in Sarasota.
