Not much there other than some good shells and a shell of a home that was built in the 70s and has been slowly eroding into the water. Looks like something out of Star Wars.

Was nice to see the domes still there after moving away from Marco in 1996, although I fear the ocean will claim them soon. The shelling was still good, take a dolphin tour from the Marriott and there is a one hour stop on the Cape.

I would tell all how awful Kice Island and its cape are so I can have it all to myself. Thankfully you mst have local boating knowledge to really enjoy this place. It is truly where the sidewalk ends.

Good scenery awaits travelers to this area but water depths can cause problems for most boats. Visitors should take a guide, have local knowledge or travel very slowly.

my husband and I took kayaks out there this morning. Ugly, stinky, littered with fish carcasses, dozens of vultures, and zero interesting shells. Plus a very tough paddle out, and even tougher paddle back (in no wind) because of the currents. If you have friends with a motorized boat or jet ski, sure, check it out. But otherwise, no need!

So far and a bit risky to get there if you don't follow the buoys. We cut across on our jet skis and it was soooo shallow. Cool looking house at the Cape.

Go shelling or spend a day on a beach all by yourself. See the houses being taken over by the sea and nature.
