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.

We first took the 2hr tour to Buck Key with Dawn and loved it so much we came back to rent kayaks and go on our own! Had never kayaked before and Dawn made sure to explain everything before we left. Then she was very patient and very knowledgeable too - very pleasant trip. We saw dolphins, lots of birds,... More

My husband and I did a morning kayak tour of Buck Key. It was the first time kayaking for both of us and I have to say I was quite nervous, afraid I would tip over the kayak and fall in. I immediately felt at ease, though, and we both had a blast! We started out with our guide across... More

This was our first time kayaking (2 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 nine year old) and we had a great experience! They do a great job showing you how to use the paddles, and get the kayak going in the correct direction. Our tour guide provided us with great information and was very dialed in and attentive for the 2... More

We first went on a tour of the Buck Key Mangrove with Dawn. She was amazing! She told us so much about the area and the sea life around us. Then a few days later we rented kayaks and an SUP to go around on our own. Everyone we dealt with at Adventure Sea Kayak was great. We will definitely... More

The tour start is determined by when sunset occurs. We started at roughly 7:45P on 7 August, so a bit before sunset, paddled across to Buck Key, got oriented and then started down the kayak path as it got darker. So yes, the tour takes place at night when it's dark. That makes it lots of fun. You are given... More

The staff is super helpful and courteous. I've been kayaking in a few places along the east coast and this place is by far the best. The price was good and you definitely get your money's worth. We saw manatees and jumping fish and heron as well as other kinds of birds. It was amazing! Bring tons of water if... More

We went kayaking with Dawn on this trip. It was the highlight of our trip for my husband and I, and my 2 teenaged sons enjoyed themselves as well. We were supposed to be on a 2 hr. trip, but it lasted at least 3 hrs.! We saw many different types of birds, crabs, shark, dolphin and many manatees! The... More

We did this tour a few times while on the island and learned something new every time! The tour guides are naturalists and have a passion for the area and the wildlife. We tried another company as well and didn't have near the fun. Adventure Sea Kayak rocks!!
