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 with a goal of paddling with 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. Your guides will help you navigate the tunnels, pointing out exotic wildlife as you pass. Everyone loves when finding giant hermit crabs and seastars along the way. 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.
Other things to note
Kids welcome from age 3 and up. Kayaks and paddleboards can be combined on the same tour. If you need a different date, contact us at info@surfitusa.com or call 941-952-8245. We love family groups!

What a great experience! Aaron was a great host and was sure not to leave anyone behind or feel left out no matter what your experience level was. I would highly recommend paddle boarding with SURFit to anyone.

The experience felt much more authentic than the other tours near us. Very relaxed, fun and enchanting experience. We highly recommend!

Our host Aaron was awesome. Was amazing with my 13 year old son and had great knowledge of the area and water life in which he shared with us. My kids will never forget this experience.

Everything was fantastic on this trip. We were able to see a group of manatees and a ton of other animals. The trip through the tunnels was a lot of fun and our guide Aaron was wonderful and super helpful. Completely recommend.

What a fun experience! If you have a chance to go kayaking don’t hesitate! This was my boyfriends first time kayaking and our guide made us feel comfortable and safe the entire time. Only set back was the weather conditions since we had a reservation for 9:30 am and due to the wind and low tide were not able to go until 1 pm but that was something out of their control. They were very accommodating for us and good with communication. I would highly recommend this experience 😊
