Category: Island Info

Surrounded by clear blue waters and an endless sky, Captiva is the perfect place to try your hand at a wide selection of water sports.

You might be surprised to learn just how many different activities the Island offers. If you think you've seen it all, wait until you get a glimpse of how exciting "flyboarding" is! From parasailing to paddleboarding and more, a whole host of fun sports is available for your entire family to enjoy.

To learn more about things to do on Captiva Island, check out our comprehensive area guide.

Captiva Island Water Sports You Have to Try


If you want to see Captiva Island from a bird's eye view, this is the absolute best way to do so. Board YOLO's winch boat with a friend and fly high behind it with the help of a parasail canopy, catching unbelievable views of the Island along the way. Bring a camera to snap a few photos, because you won't want to forget this experience!


Want to do some exploring? Rent a kayak from Kingfisher Vacations and take a leisurely cruise as you enjoy the calm, shallow waters of the Gulf. Keep an eye out for fish, manatee, and dolphins as you sail around Captiva Island, too. Be sure to sneak up on them quietly so you won't scare them away! Kayaking provides an excellent opportunity to get close to nature, adventure, and spend valuable time with family and friends. Water sports lovers of all ages will love this experience.

WaveRunner Excursions

Jump aboard a WaveRunner and glide around Captiva Island's coastline, feeling the thrill of waves rushing away beneath you. These excursions offer the opportunity to glimpse Bottlenose dolphins, turtles, and all kinds of wildlife. Some tours even stop for shell collecting on the shore or a relaxing stroll to soak up the sunshine! Visit YOLO for more details.

Cruising on a Banana Boat

An inflatable banana boat can hold up to six (yes, six!) people and is especially exciting for young kids and teens who want to get their first taste of Captiva Island water sports. Taking a fun, carefree ride on a banana boat is a family-friendly activity you'll want to do again and again!


Add flyboarding to your must-do list because you have to give this a shot before leaving Captiva Island! A flyboard is a device that uses propulsion to lift you above the water and hover over the surface of the ocean. The rider stands on a board as the water pressure from a long hose propels them up to 70 feet in the air. Flyboarding is one of the most exhilarating water sports on the Island, and you'll want to tell everyone all about it when you get home from your beach vacation. Don't miss it!
