Bill’s Sarasota Kayaking Experience

From Bill Connor of Islip NY.

I’m from New York, East Islip to be exact, which is a small town in Suffolk County out on Long Island. We went down to the Sarasota area to look at potential vacation homes and to enjoy a short 4 night vacation. We decided to go kayaking because we just wanted to enjoy some physical activity while enjoying the water and nature. I made the arrangements with Scott after my plans with another Kayak company fell through. I had found the other company on Trip Advisor. I luckily picked up a card at the desk at our hotel, the Lido Beach Resort.

Scott was awesome on the trip , we had plans to leave at 10AM, and we actually left early since we were a small group, 2 kayaks and 4 people total we got a lot of individual attention from Scott. His instructions and safety tips on using the kayak were right on mark and my wife and her sister were very much at ease while using the kayaks.

Scott was very informative, not just on the wild life we saw,birds, crabs, herons, ibises, pelicans, osprey, but also shared information about the various keys we toured and the history of the area.

I was a little concerned because it was my idea to go kayaking, but everyone agreed that it was the highlight of our trip and everyone would love to go out on the bay with Scott on our next trip. I really thought that the value/ quality of kayaking with Scott was off of the charts.
