Exploring the barrier islands of Captiva & Sanibel from sea level is a unique adventure for the entire family. Join us on our bayside location on Pine Island Sound Aquatic Preserve on Captiva Island. We have direct access to this pristine estuary, rich in Florida habitat. The scenic, shallow bay waters provide a beautiful backdrop for both novice and experienced paddlers: Bays, beaches, bayous and mangrove trails! So much to explore! Choose a back bay ecology tour with our guides through historic Buck Key Island and/or have an adventure paddling on your own to the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.
