Almost Heaven Kayak Adventures is the original eco tour in the greater Sarasota area, and has been in business well over a decade. We offer a wide variety of guided kayak tours in many different types of water in Southwest Florida’s coastal and inland habitats for paddlers of all ages, skill levels, physical conditions, and sizes! We pride ourselves in employing guides that truly care about protecting our fragile ecosystems and habitats and actively promote conservation and environmental awareness.
Paddle with us through otherworldly Mangrove Tunnels which are home to a plethora of birds and all sorts of marine life! Keep a lookout on the open water portion of the tour for a chance to encounter Manatees or Bottlenose Dolphins up close!
Kayak and Paddleboard (SUP) Rentals. If you'd rather spend the day exploring the beautiful Sarasota Bay and enchanting Mangrove Tunnels at your own pace, a rental option may be for you! We even offer delivery!
The best way to see Siesta Key is from the water! A relaxing loop through a marine preserve with a stop on a secluded beach known for great shelling is a perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon in paradise!
The perfect adventure for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts! The Myakka River and surrounding wetlands, prairies, and hammocks are loaded with Alligators, wild pigs, deer, birds, and countless other types of life!
When you select a 24-hour Paddleboard or SUP rental, we’ll deliver it to you in the area for free! We also offer 1/2 day Paddleboard rentals (Lido Only). When booking your rental, be sure to select the 24-hour option with delivery, and then just let us know where you want them to be dropped off!
