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.

“Naples Lady Teachers Have a Fantastic Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Naples Lady Teachers Have a Fantastic Day!
Having purchased the charter on Groupon, we were not sure what to expect. WOW……we had a fantastic day! Captain Jim did an outstanding job of keeping our lines rigged with shrimp and then never saying a word when the hooks came back empty:) Captain Jim was a good teacher and soon we were pulling in fish left and right….even catching a 9 foot Bull Shark! We can’t wait until the next outing with the Double R’s and Captain Jim…If you want to catch a lot of fish, then I recommend the The Double R’s….Thanks for a FUN day! Kim, Lenice, and Lisa

“Eco Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the boat!! It was relaxing, entertaining, and educational. Tammy is a wonderful guide and Capt. Jason (?) was willing to stop or turn around or go in circles so we could see the manatee and dolphin. We used a Groupon but will go again when our grandchildren come to visit ........with or without a Groupon.

“Very Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

We went on this tour to see manatees, dolphins, alligators and native vegetation. We were not disappointed. We headed out to the 10,000 Islands with Captain Carl stopping the boat to view any aquatic life and birds that we came upon. Tammy, our guide, was phenomenal in sharing her tremendous knowledge of everything around us. This trip was highly educational for my 10, 13, and 14 year old girls but a little too slow for my 5 year old son. We did get lucky and saw about 6 dolphins at once who decided to show off for us. I would not recommend this trip for children under 5 since you are not guaranteed to see a lot of activity and the ride is 2.5 hours long.

“Professional, knowledgable, and you'll catch a lot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Couldn't have asked for a better experience - Captain Pete was an excellent, kind, and patient guide. We caught tons of fish and had a lovely time. Some of the most fun and beautiful fishing in SW Florida. Great relaxing activity for couples, families, or reunions with friends.

“A fun day with the Grandchildren!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We purchased the ticket through Groupon and have now been introduced to a wonderful new marina (only 15 minutes from our house) and great new fishing instructors. Our three grandchildren loved catching the fish as well as the dolphins, alligators and osprey. Capt. Jim was very patient and informative with the children (as well with the adults!!!). We will definitely be back soon!!! Kathy and Bill Scully
