Owner description: 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.

This fishing trip was excellent! Capt Jim is a hoot! My husband, 2 kids and I all caught fish, which they cleaned for us and we cooked up that evening (delicious!). Plus we saw lots of wildlife (gator, dolphin, manatee). Even though our 9 yr old didn't catch a shark like he was hoping for, he was thrilled to be... More

Captain Mike's courtesy and knowledge of the area made it a great trip. there was beautiful scenery and interesting shelling on an isolated beach. We had good views of manatees, alligators, wading birds and raptors. Good value for the money.

My husband and I had a fantastic time on our 2.5 hour Eco Tour! We would absolutely come back and suggest it to others. We were completely satisfied with this tour. Also, the price was reasonable for the time of the tour. ($55.00/person) In fact, even if you saw nothing but birds the entire trip you're on a nice, safe... More

We had a great time with Carl yesterday on our Port of the Islands, 10,000 islands boat tour. He was very attentive to all of us. He was well educated on the Everglades and capable of communicating in a way we could understand.
