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.

This is a fun and easy way to get introduced to kayaking in and around the mangroves. The location is beautiful and the guided tour is informative and relaxing. No need to be an expert kayaker to participate. A fun experience!

We’re just speechless 😍 The tour was great and I highly recommend it! First of all Greg us an awesome and fun person and he can tell you a lot about this region. The kayaking was spectacular. Greg rescheduled the departure time a bit later cause we ask for. Because we wanted to see the sunset 😊 We actually saw dolphins playing around 😍 Die Tour war einfach grandios. Wenn ihr hier seid bucht die Tour mit Greg, er ist einfach toll und witzig und weiß sehr viel über die Region. Wir fragten, ob wir später abfahren können um noch den Sonnenuntergang von einer der Inseln zu sehen, was gar kein Problem für ihn war. Zum Schluss sagen wir tatsächlich noch Delfine, einer kam sogar sehr nah und spielte um uns herum.

Captain Greg was a great kayaking guide. Going through the mangrove tunnels was the highlight! Capt. Greg was a wealth of knowledge about all the marine life around, birds, and the importance of preserving the mangroves. My husband and I greatly enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend it!
