Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.
$22 for a Guided Two-Hour Sunset Kayak Tour for One ($45 Value)
Sarasota natives take groups on guided sunset kayak tours, which depart about 1.5 hours before sunset. Explore the estuary on your way out to a sandbar stationed in the center of Sarasota Bay, from which you’ll watch the sun drop below the city skyline. Return trips often include journeys through the bay’s unique mangrove tunnels. BYOB is permitted.
I Kayak Sarasota
The spindly branches of mangrove trees dip into Sarasota waters, often creating channels just wide enough to admit one kayak. But despite the narrow nature of these waterways, the guides of I Kayak Sarasota—all Sarasota natives—navigate them with ease. They do this while leading kayakers on tours that uncover different aspects of the bay’s natural splendor without revealing its real secret—that it’s actually a giant’s bathtub. One tour showcases the mangrove tunnels where tourists might see manatees and dolphins, and the other grants guests views of the sunset from the middle of the bay. In addition, I Kayak Sarasota offers standup-paddleboard lessons, which incorporate balance and core fitness into wave-top adventures.
