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.

I have kayaked with Adventure Sea Kayak on the Roosevelt Channel multiple times, both guided and unguided, and every time is a great experience. Egrets, ibis, osprey, anhingas, manatees, and dolphins are all a part of the show against a backdrop of mangroves, palm trees, and the beauty of Pine Island Sound. The service and attention to detail are meticulous,... More

Took the morning guided tour with my twin seven-year old's. One sat in the front, one in the center on just a pad (no back) and I sat in the back. They took turns rowing, while I tried to stay in line with their paddle in the back. They argued a little about whose turn it was to row, and... More

What a great afternoon of health, wellness and exercise prior to football debauchery that evening. The trip thru the mangroves, manatees, sea life and wild life, Bob gave it all. A great tour. I stay at Tween Waters often and will do the kayak trip again. Thanks

Bob set us up in kayaks and Mark led the tour. He knows his stuff! Learned a lot about the wildlife and history around the trail. He was patient and helped us navigate. Awesome experience!

We did this with our 8 yrd old and had a single and double kayak. We had never kayaked before and our guide was patient and took the time to show us the basics. Our 8 year old was paddling like a pro within 20 minutes. We kayaked over to buck key and saw crabs, birds,conches, and mangroves. We kayaked... More

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.
