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.

Several years ago, we kayaked with this company and had a great time! Our guide this time was Bob and he was very knowledgeable and helpful to all. We saw manatees, osprey, mangrove tree crabs, and the best was when Carl the cormorant sat on my kayak! Hope to come back next year!

Though it was way too windy to go kayaking or SUP-ing, these people were front and center for the rescue of a young osprey about two weeks from fledging who I guess while practicing flapping caught a breeze and ended up near the Kayak place. They kept people away so the bird wasn't frightened, called the local rehab place, CROW,... More

In late March 2015 my husband and I did the two-hour kayak tour offered by Adventure Sea Kayak. Our guide Bob was outstanding throughout the tour. He shared lots of interesting information about Captiva (ranging from history to current events to good restaurants in the area) and showed us wildlife throughout the tour. He also has an excellent sense of... More

My wife and I and our two teen daughters took a kayak tour with Dawn as our guide and had a great trip. Dawn was very knowledgeable about the estuary habitat of Pine Island Sound and we ended up learning a thing or two cleverly disguised as a fun adventure. We paddled the route through the mangrove tunnel of Buck... More

My husband and I went kayaking last week on a tour with Mark and we had a wonderful time. Adventure Sea Kayak is very helpful and accommodating. My husband is almost 6'6" and Brian suggested a time when he knew he could offer a kayak to fit him. It was a perfect fit. We saw lots of manatees as well... More

We decided on a whim to rent some kayaks for a few hours. I called Adventure Sea Kayak, but got voice mail. I hung up and we decided we'd just try later. Brian called me back within minutes apologizing for missing my call. He held 3 kayaks for us until we could drive down to Tween Waters. When we got... More

This was my mom's first ocean kayak experience, so we took out a tandem. Great paddle with just the two of us, guided by Bob. Interesting and peaceful to paddle through Duck Key in the mangroves, seeing shells and crabs. Along the shore, many birds including nesting and diving osprey, brown pelicans, the 'snake bird', snowy egrets. Saw one dolphin... More

We were at 'Tween Waters for the weekend and had a great kayak tour with Mark. We went through a trail in Buck Key and learned a lot about the wildlife we saw along the way. A fun adventure and great tour guide. We will definitely do it again!

Amazing afternoon on the water doing a stand up paddle board guided tour!! Mark was very friendly and knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning more about the mangroves, beautiful birds, and other wildlife! We got lucky and were able to paddle with a number of manatee and also a dolphin! I would have never known how to spot the manatee on... More

Showed up ready to rent kayaks for several days after talking to them in person earlier and they gave me a convoluted excuse as to why they could not rent to me because they weren't sure what their inventory was and asked me to call their phone number later in the evening to check in. I have called already called... More

We thank you for your feed back and apologize that your experience was not positive. Admittedly the demand for rental kayaks during this years Christmas/New Years holiday exceeded our expectations and supply. This resulted in unwanted wait times for our guests that were anxious to enjoy kayak time on the water. We have addressed this issue and increased our inventory... More
