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.

Six of us (between late 50's and early 70's) jumped into sea kayaks and had a great adventure! Saw a manatee or two and lots of sea birds. Guide Steven was pretty good at spotting critters. Pretty easy paddling for some of us who were inexperienced. Lots of fun and great for all skill levels.

Bob runs a get kayak rental business at Tween Waters Inn on Captiva. His friendly helpful service made for a great day out amongst the mangrove island and inlets around Captiva. Even with two children 11 and 5 Bob gave individual instruction and safety first kit to make our adventure great fun and safe. We saw a whole host of... More

Firstly, can I say there were no crocs/alligators....as I tried to read so many reviews to check this up and couldn't find a thing on it!! Don't think they are any here. We did see a dolphin hunting which was our highlight, a manatee (most have left now for warmer waters), a bonnet shark which was tiny(we saw an adult!)... More

The friendliest staff on the islands were super helpful with all our with all our Watersports needs. We were set up with some paddleboards and told where all the great spots were. The paddling was easy and exciting up Roosevelt channel where we encountered both dolphins and manatees! The wind was really blowing during our stay, but within the channel... More

We were a group of six women and we took the guided kayak tour. Out guide, Steve, was knowledgable and friendly. We was baby bonnet head sharks, dolphin, Rays, a gator, osprey and a lot of water birds. I am not an exerciser but I was able to handle the leisurely kayaking without a problem. Excellent and fun tour.

This is the greatest thing to do as a family or couple or even alone. The staff is wonderful is expaining how to kayak or paddleboards and we have taken three tours with them and have loved it! The first time I went on a kayak with the guide and it gave me confidence to go alone the next time.... More

This morning we took the Buck Key tour led by Dawn. We had 8 people aged from 75 to 9 years old. Dawn was extremely knowledgeable about the local surroundings and wildlife and made it interesting for the kids as well. We saw plenty of wildlife including dolphins, crabs, fish, shark, birds and the icing on the cake was a... More

We had a great 2 hour tour of the bays and mangroves in the area. Saw manatee, lots of birds and waterfowl. Stephen, our guide, was very knowledgeable and engaged in pointing out local sites, history of the area, and more. Take a cell phone or camera for pix but be sure to have a waterproof cover!

Our family took the 4 hour Tween Waters trip (10 people ages 9-67). The trip is moderately strenuous, so you should have some experience paddling to make it enjoyable - recommend using double kayaks, wear long sleeves and a hat, bring plenty of drinks/snacks. During the trip, we collected shells and saw tons of wildlife including a bonnet head shark,... More
