Only 10 minutes from the beaches of Marco Island you can experience the 10,000 Islands area of the Everglades. Enjoy a 2 hour Birding, Dolphin and Wildlife Photo Eco Tour is a very comfortable power boat. Designed specifically for families the 3.5 hour 10,000 Eco Excursion is a hands on learning experience. Our most popular experience, however, is the Boat Assisted Kayak Eco Tour. Daily departures are limited to six guests, so reservations are required.

The half day ecotour in 10000 islands area was just the right mix of kayaking, walking and relaxing boat ride. We saw lots of dolphins- the highlight was watching them play in the boat's wake and feeding- amazing! Beautiful shelling on a quiet beach. Captain was knowledgeable but not overly chatty which was good. As I'm sitting here in chilly... More

First time to the area and not sure what to expect. This was the kind of activity we like best. Small group, (just 4 of us), very knowledgeable guide, and active rather than passive involvement. Would definitely recommend this.

Wonderful time. Learned so much about dolphins and ospreys. Paddled from the boat to a small island and learned about shells. Saw tons of mullet fish jumping out of the water and dolphins playing in our boat's wake.

We loved our shelling trip with Captains Ed and Heather!! They took us to an island where the shelling was incredible!! They were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The 2 hours flew by. We will do this again, this time with friends.

We had a wonderful week's vacation in Marco Island and we did a number of tours and activities. We enjoyed our Everglades Air Boat tour, jet skiing, Parasailing, etc, but our favorite tour was Marco Island Boat Tour's boat/kayak/hiking tour in the Ten Thousand Island NWR. The guide was very knowledgeable and professional and the tour exceeded our expectations.
