Explore the area around Neville Preserve between Siesta Key and Casey Key by kayak. Paddle the kayaks through the shallow waters, examine and identify various types of mangroves and learn their importance. Encounter birds, fish, and the occasional porpoise and manatee. Learn about the old Mote Marine shark tank (now empty), walk on the beach at the old Midnight Pass and learn about the constantly changing shore line. Through handouts and old aerial photos, gain better understanding of the beautiful Sarasota area where land meets water. Class departs from Turtle Beach Lagoon on Siesta Key. Please note: Participants need to be able to swim, and to be able to sit in a kayak for approximately three hours, feel comfortable on the water, and be able to paddle. FEE FOR THIS CLASS IS NONREFUNDABLE.
