Experience Whitaker Bayou

I am offering guided tours of Whitaker Bayou, a small wooded tributary off of Sarasota Bay that few people have seen.

Beyond Ringling College of Art and Design, Whitaker Bayou winds through the Newtown neighborhood between Dr. Martin Luther King Way and Myrtle Avenue.

This hidden treasure offers a view of Old Florida rarely seen in the quickly developing city.

Whitaker Bayou is named for William Whitaker, Sarasota’s first white settler, who arrived in the early 1840s. Since I was able to portray him in the film No Real Than You Are, which screened at the Sarasota and Cannes Film Festivals, I love that I get to live on Whitaker Bayou and share it with others.

I schedule hour-long trips around the high tide. I provide kayaks, canoes, and paddles. Email me at inkensoul@gmail.com to let me know when you’d like to come. I can accommodate up to 6 people.
