My wife and I are coming down for a week in April and I'd like to rent a couple of kayaks and see some of the landscape from the water. Can anyone recommend a nice place/area to do this? We will be staying in Warm Mineral Springs.

I would highly recommend the mangrove tunnels at Lido Key. There are numerous kayak rental places on 41 (Tamiami Trl) in Venice, Osprey, Sarasota and most have guided trips available.

Thanks for the tip! Are these places usually packed with people or can I make my reservations when we arrive in FLA?
