A couple kayaking on their Captiva Island vacation.There’s nothing quite like soaking in the sunshine while letting Florida waves gently rock you back and forth. When you plan a visit with Sanibel Vacations, there is no shortage of ways to experience this type of relaxation. With vacation rentals on both Captiva and Sanibel islands, you’ll have plenty of coastline to explore, both on and off the water. For an equally laidback and adventurous outing, go kayaking on Captiva Island waterways.

The Top 3 Kayaking Tours

One of the best ways to take in the sights is by letting an experienced guide show you around. There are several eco-tour kayaking services throughout the Captiva and Sanibel, which means you can find one that fits your itinerary best.

  1. Adventure Sea Kayak, located on Captiva Island, offers a number of excursions. Kayak through a mangrove trail to the heart of Buck Key or paddle the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound. You can also reserve your spot on a night kayaking adventure.
  2. Known as a resource for “all things fun,” Sunny Island Adventures is a go-to shop for kayakers. The Captiva eco-tour will take you through breathtaking scenery and waterways that offer frequent sightings of aquatic life, like dolphins and manatees. 
  3. Make your way to Sanibel Island to go kayaking with Tarpon Bay Explorers. There are several memorable excursions to choose from. Let an experienced naturalist take you through the mangrove forest along the Commodore Creek Trail. Chase the sunset while enjoying a bit of bird watching through Tarpon Bay’s Rookery Islands.

If you feel like going out on a self-guided outing, reserve a rental from SBL Outfitters, which offers single and double kayaks.
