Cape Romano Shelling and Sightseeing Boat Tour from Marco Island
From US$ 55.00
Overview
Spend some time on the gulf waters of southern Florida—a nature lover's delight—on a boat tour from Marco Island to Cape Romano. With a guide, you'll have the chance to learn about the region's marine life and see the ecosystem of mangroves, plus go shelling.
What to Expect

On our two hour Cape Romano Shelling Tours you will experience one of the most popular adventures we are known for. Departing from Caxambas Park Marina on the south end of Marco Island, we will take a fifteen minute boat ride from our launch location to Cape Romano. Once we arrive, our Captains will explain the amazing story of the infamous Dome Houses. This is a very popular point of interest that tourists come to see year round. After viewing Cape Romano, we will stop on a private beach in search of the most exotic tropical sea shells that the Gulf coast is known for. This is a semi-private or private tour. Our boats are very kid friendly, with comfortable seating and a ladder for easy boarding. The Gulf Coast of Florida has a lot to offer when it comes to hidden and not so hidden coastal treasure hunts. This guided boat tour will take you to a deserted beach where you will find beautiful shells that you will take home with you as a Marco Island souvenir . Our guests ranged from very young children to adults, this is a tour designed for every age group and will keep everyone engaged during the search of these tropical treasures while you walk the white sandy beaches searching for the perfect shell. Florida Adventures and Rentals, is committed to teach our guests about to ecology that makes the Rookery Bay Reserve and the Ten Thousand Islands a tropical paradise.
