    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Cape Romano, Marco Island, FL

    Boasting pristine white sand beaches, Cape Romano is one of several potential beach-combing stops on your private tour. The island is also the site of the abandoned Dome Home, a quirky modern home whose remnants are being slowly reclaimed by the Gulf of Mexico.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, 12085 State Road 29 S, Immokalee, FL 34142-5703

    Your private tour will explore the waterways, mangrove keys and white sand beaches south of Marco Island. The Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge is home to a year-round population of bottle-nosed dolphin, nearly 200 bird species and tons of other wildlife as well as some of the best shelling and beach-combing in all of Florida!

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
