The 2.5 hour manatee viewing eco tour is the only local eco tour that starts in the heart of the Everglades, and takes only minutes to get to the 10,000 Islands and the Gulf of Mexico. The tour is located at the home of South Florida's largest herd of manatees. Viewing the eco system of the Everglades in the comfort of a covered boat is a true Everglades experience. You are likely to see manatees, alligators, dolphins, and turtles, as well as many species of rare and endangered tropical birds. Some of the tropical birds species are the Ibis, Egret, Great Blue Heron, Osprey, Pelican, and the American Bald Eagle. The tour is fully narrated by knowledgeable local Captains and their boats are stable, comfortable and USCG approved. You'll learn interesting facts on the manatee, alligator, dolphin, and tropical bird species, along with information on the Everglades.

Very enjoyable. Saw numerous manatee and spent time shelling on a nice little island. The guide was very knowledgeable and got us as close as possible to the wildlife without disrupting them. I would definitely recommend this.

The tour and the location were wonderful. Captain Mike even circled back to retrieve a hat that had fallen into the water! Very informative, beautiful and friendly.

Captain Mike did an excellent job of spotting wildlife like alligators, manatees and lots of birds on our 3 hour tour. He also did a good job of explaining the Ecco system. I would recommend this tour over the more commercial airboat tours. You also get to spend 1/2 hour exploring a remote island in the Gulf. You won't be... More

We took the 3 hour manatee eco-tour/shelling trip. Even though it was cold and with a chance of rain this was the best trip. Our guide's knowledge of the area and wildlife made the enjoyment of the area even more enjoyable. Money well spent.

We had Captain Jim and his wife Virginia as the first mate. They are located in Port of the Islands which is east of Naples on Tamiami... More
