Backwater Adventure is the newest and coolest way to explore the 10,000 islands. Drive your own 2 seat catamaran. Your guide will take you on an amazing adventure winding through the mangroves at speeds up to 30 MPH! With a short stop on a private island to do some shelling or swimming.

We loved this adventure! What a fun way to be out on the water without the responsibility of driving a bigger boat or having to charter a ride. The boats are quite stable in the water (better than jet skis and less vibration) and easy...More

A must do!!! By the end of the tour everyone wants a jet boat lol. Dolphins swam right up to our boat and they were jumping too. Beautiful scenic tour. We did 9am-12 for a cooler day.

If you are in the Marco Island area you have to experience a Craig Cat. Our guide "Scott" was simply great. Very knowledge of the area and all the creatures that reside there . Great way to see a small piece of the 10,000 Islands....More

Had a great time with Scott as our guide. Unfortunately the manatee were hiding from us but he found lots of dolphins for us. And driving the Craigcat was a total blast. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Worth the money. The stop...More
