Be sure to read up on what you are going to see! Unfortunately as with most things there is graffiti but it is still so cool to take a ride and check these out!

If you have friends in town, and are out boating, this is a great site to see. Also, there is a very nice deserted beach right there. Someone was a real pioneer. You can spend a couple of enjoyable hours if you bring a picnic...More

We visited this as a part of our time with Eco Adventure tour which was the perfect way to see it. We saw The dome houses in 2003 and now in 2017. They have changed quite a bit.

Is it possible to get close to the homes by foot? Even if your a ways away I want the experience but don't have time for the boat tour.

Once you get to Cape Romano Island, you could walk/swim out to the houses (the water is not deep), but you do have to get to the island in the first place.
Who was your fishing tour with? Would you recommend it? Thanks.

I believe you can go in your own boat because they do shelling tours and there are people on the islands all the time
