We took a tour of the 10,000 islands around Marci Island on Jet Ski. We went with WowAdventures.com. The guide took our picture in front of these abandoned dome homes. What a great shot. It certainly evokes conversation and allusions to Star Wars! Great FUN! Highly recommend. One caution, if you have back or neck problems, a jet ski may... More

We passed these islands as we were headed out for a day fishing. Became very curious about their original purpose. Interesting history and great photo op.

Inspired by one-man's desire to live off the grid, the 'Dome Houses" today are best understood through the power of hurricanes. I recommend accessing through Dreamlander Tours.

It's an old house that barely remains. There is a beach there across the way you can walk on. Interesting Adventure.

I love fishing in this area. Tons of sharks, rays, and snappers. Lots of wildlife. Watch out for sand bars.

Visited the dome homes today for the first time to see what remains of a local landmark. The interesting architecture was marred by people crawling all over the structures and carving their initials into the porous substrate that the concrete was added to. I never saw a building used as a written marriage proposal before! At least the nearby beaches... More

This is one of the homes that were once on the cape, now all taken by the gulf. Take a boat tour of the area, very interesting. We have been here many times always fun

Like the review of Cape Romano, this is a beautiful place. The beach is clean, not crowded and the last standing stilt house will be gone soon. Only accessible by boat but worth every minute.

The best way to experience this area is by a charter boat. You will be in awe to see what someone could build and wonder how they survived.
