Come experience the flora and fauna at The Bay through a free, guided kayak nature tour.

Every Saturday at 8:30am, join us for a free, 2-hour, intermediate-level tour through The Bay’s restored mangroves and to the north and south of the park, allowing paddlers to explore Sarasota Bay and learn more about The Bay Park from Ride & Paddle’s experienced guides. ($60+ value!)

We kindly ask you to refrain from registering for multiple dates to ensure we have enough space to accommodate everyone interested.

Due to popular demand for free guided tours, we are only accepting registrations four weeks out in advance.

  • Where to Meet: Please go to The Bay Park’s newly added ADA-accessible kayak and paddle launch located at the south-east edge of the bayou near the corner of Van Wezel Way and Blvd of the Arts.

IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE: Space is very limited and due to popular demand, we have experienced a growing waitlist. As a courtesy to other park guests, please quickly notify The Bay Team or cancel your reservation if you are no longer able to attend so we are able to release your spot to someone else.
