We had a wonderful time kayaking as a group. We have three boys (8, 10, 12.) this was doable for everyone and a major highlight of our vacation. We saw many birds and other wildlife. A great way to experience Captiva. Mark, our guide, was super knowledgeable, kind and patient.

**Just saying: no alligators around. I was concerned about this when trying to find a tour. Someone else gave me the heads up, so I felt comfortable booking this tour for my husband and 11 yr. old. Our guide Sam was easy going and patient. He seemed knowledgeable about the local history and sea/wildlife. We leisurely paddled around trying to... More

When we visit Sanibel island we usually spend one or two days kayaking in the mangroves. This was the first time we participated in a tour - and we were very pleased that we did the tour. Dawn, the guide that my wife & I had was very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and environment - and very pleasant to... More

When I booked this morning SUP tour, I assumed there would be a whole group of us. Since there were no other bookings, I got a solo tour with Mark who is such a relaxed and nice guy. Mark who grew up in the area is extremely knowledgeable of the local wildlife. He didn't stop pointing out animals to me.... More

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
