Wat je gaat doen

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, which is lined with beautiful mansions. Although the houses are fun to look at, our real goal is to find 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. Karla and Aaron will help you navigate the tunnels, pointing out interesting information about the ecosystem and the animals in it. 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.

Paddleboarding through the mangroves was such a great experience! Aaron was a great tour guide through the tunnels, was super nice, and always made sure that no one got left behind. Definitely an awesome tour that I would gladly do again!

What a great spot for paddle boarding! And a great guide. Aaron met my daughter, my husband and myself at the launching area and took us on a tour of the Lido beach area. First we saw different birds and mansions in an inlet, then he took us into the mangrove tunnels, all the while telling us about the area, the wildlife and even himself. He's really easy to talk to and is very laid back. After about 45 minutes our 7 year-old daughter grew tired of paddling, so he somehow configured a way to nestle part of her board under his and paddled the both of them for the rest of the trip! She loved it!
