Capt Yak is a Veteran owned business. We will explore through and around Mangrove Keys, Beds of Sea Grasses and Sand Bars on some of the Newest, Most Comfortable and Best Paddling Kayaks in the area. Our Sit-On-Top Kayaks are outfitted with adjustable mesh seats that add comfort and paddling ease to your trip. The seat position also allows you to see the abundant sea life below much better than the old style Sit-In Kayaks and you will not be sitting in water the entire tour. Birds, stingrays, horseshoe crabs, shells, manatees and dolphins are some of the wildlife you may see. Greg, "Capt Yak", will immerse you in this vital eco-system and provide you with information on the abundant wildlife and plant life you will encounter on this 3 hour tour. Don't worry about getting tired, your route will be based on the tide and wind to make the paddle as easy and enjoyable as possible. Midway through the tour you will stop at Shell Key and have time for a stroll, take a dip in the warm gulf waters, look for that special shell, have a snack or just relax and take it all in. On the return trip you will continue to be mesmerized with your interactions with your guide. With nearly thirty years experience conducting field research and working in the zoo field, Greg has acquired a vast amount of knowledge that crosses over to his passion of kayaking Shell Key Preserve for many years

Greg, "Capt Yak" grew up in a small farm community in Iowa. He moved to LA shortly after high school to work for a family business but decided he wanted to see the world so he joined the Navy. After the Navy he went back to work for the family business that brought him to Florida. He had always wanted to work with animals so his new career started on a whim. The next thirty years found him conducting field research in the US and other countries as well as working in a few Zoos and Aquariums as a Keeper, Curator and Animal Care Specialists. Greg, his wife Eva, sons Matthew and Nicolas have spent years camping, kayaking and exploring Florida. Greg was mesmerized by Shell Key Preserve and starting conducting tours on his weekends in 2018. He loved sharing his passion for the area so much that he deiced to tackle it full time in July 2020.

My 9 yo and I were amazed by all the nature and wonderful stories by Greg. We had a few memorable occasions like seeing a flock of Canadian pelicans; 2 dolphines swimming around us and under our kayaks; many sea life and birds. This tour is above and beyond, just follow Greg and prepare for wonders.

This was a great experience. My husband and I went out and we both enjoyed it immensely. It was my first time on a kayak and Greg was patient and helpful. It was a lovely day. The wildlife was beautiful. It was a great way to step outside of the hustle and bustle and take a moment to enjoy the peacefulness of nature. Greg was an amazing guide. I am making this a tradition as long as Greg continues to lead tours.

Kayaking with Captain Yak is such a great escape and a wonderful chance to really engage with nature! We got fresh air, a few nature lessons and a good work out--all a the same time. Visiting Shell Key by kayak was my favorite part of the trip.

We had so much fun! It was beautiful and Greg and his wife were very nice and made sure we all had a great time. I especially loved the cormorants diving under the kayaks and catching fish. They traveled with us most of the way and have the prettiest blue eyes! Highly recommend!!!
