Adventure Sea Kayak-SUP Wildlife Tours & Adventures is a family owned and operated guide service that is now in it's second generation. Owned and operated by Captain John Houston, the focus of each tour is to educate, inform and have fun in and around the waters of Pine Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. We also offer Kayaks & Stand Up Paddle rentals and Paddle Yoga classes. All trips depart from Tween Waters Inn Marina on Captiva Island, located at 15951 Captiva Dr. - Captiva, Florida 33924.As a family of old Florida we love to pass on the stories of Barrier Island Life from the settling era of coastal Florida and historical influence of old Cuba fishing and the Calusa culture.

I did a solo kayak as part of a larger group. Really good trip and we got to see groups of dolphins, a manatee and it's calf as well as lots and lots of bird life. The kayaks are really comfortable with adjustable seating positions so 2 hours flies by in no time. Really easy going no matter what your... More

We recently took the kayak tour to the Buck Key mangroves (which lasted about 2 hours). Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the area and the plants and wildlife. It was obvious that she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others and conserving this beautiful area and she totally captured our daughter's (8) curiosity. We saw... More

We recently went on a tour with our 10, 11 and 14 year old sons. Sam, our guide, was great. He was very knowledgeable and patient. We were very lucky to see so many manatees!! And one point they were just surrounding us! The mangroves were beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommend this tour. It won't disappoint!

It was overcast, windy, and raining the morning we were there,... More

From the start when I inquired regarding being able to accommodate my daughter with not being able to paddle...I was very impressed. We had a wonderful outing. Our guide took us to see the manatees and we happen to blessed with a dolphin in the bay. I am not sure who was more excited about that. Us or the guide.... More

Go for a kayak tour @Captiva! Nice place to be! We saw dolphins and manatees. Nice mangrove forest and many birds. Go for the tour after 4pm. The sun light will be excellent!

I doubt I've ever spent a better $40. Adventure Sea Kayak is top notch, from the communication leading up to the morning I did the tour to the guide, Stephen, who was extraordinarily knowledgable and just a great guy. Oh, and the scenery wasn't bad either. :-) A-Plus experience.
