A friend and I "discovered" O-Sea-D Aquatic Adventures last winter. Neither of us had ever kayaked and weren't sure what to expect when we went on a Meet-Up trip under a full moon. It was wonderful. Vince and crew were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. My friend and I went on other trips with the O-Sea-D group. We are both in the market for kayaks this year and when I get back to Florida this winter, we are planning on doing more kayaking with Vince and the guys.

I am not new to kayaking but by no means a pro. I joined O-Sea-D in August of this year and it was the best decision I have made in a long time. I have only been on 2 paddles. Prairie Creek and Telegraph Creek .both were beautiful and fun. Fellow paddlers are friendly and helpful. This is a good way to make new friends. Vince and Dan are great planning and organizing trips. The rates are reasonable if you need to rent a kayak and the ride to the launch site is free. I might ad the ride in the van is fun too. I highly recommend O-Sea-D Adventures. Caroline Mills

I've been on at least 6 O-Sea-D tours to date and I've always been impressed with their team, their organization, their concern & consideration and their knowledge of all things marine. Whether you're a novice yakker, a casual paddler or a wildly enthusiastic small boater, Vince and his gang will be able to serve you with professionalism and skill. Not only does O-Sea-D run the best tours in the Punta Gorda area, they stock and sell a great variety of quality boats and gear.

I'm a fan and supporter of organizations with direct owner involvement and Vince is one of those people. He's an astute businessman (and polite, of course) and has always treated me fairly and honestly. I'll buy more gear from him this year and sign up for as many tours as I can handle.

I'm looking forward to another great season on the water and I'm glad that O-Sea-D can help me do it safely.

O-Sea-D Aquatic Adventures, LLC is my favorite "find" in SW Florida. Vince and crew never disappoint. The outings are well thought out, wildly fun and always surprising. The yakkers who attend are a great group of friendly folk who laugh and chat throughout every adventure. If you have never been in a kayak before, never fear! You will get all the help you need to enjoy the sport of kayaking. Bring your own kayak or take advantage of Vince's very affordable rentals. The shop in Punta Gorda carries everything you need.

Both Vince and Dan are incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the sport of kayaking and this can't help but rub off on everyone who visits their shop in Punta Gorda or attends any one of their paddling adventures. An added bonus when going on a tour with them is finding out that Vince is also an environmental biologist so what you think will be a simple paddling adventure also becomes an educational one as well. Fantastic!
