The Lido Mangrove Tunnel tour was awesome. The guide was very knowledgeable. A number of boaters were first time kayakers and this was no problem. Unforgettable way to view local wildlife.

We took an amazing tour of the mangrove tunnels. It was too windy to go out in the bay so we took extra time in the tunnels. We didn't run into other people and had a nice relaxing trip. Our tour guide Will was fantastic.

We booked it like the day before, so I don't think there's a line for it. There was only one couple who went with us on the morning trip so it was more of a personal tour.
My husband has a bad knee. Im wondering if he could get in and out of kayak. Also, how long would we be kayaking?

Never kayaked before. How long would I be in the kayak? Are we in the sun most of the time? Is it hard for an older person to get in and out of the kayak?
