Island Gypsy Excursions offer their guests a chance to see and explore the natural beauty of Southwest Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands mangrove ecosystem. Enjoy the wildlife in this pristine estuary, aboard our 24’ shallow draft boat, as we meander through the mangrove lined passages where the Calusa Indians and early Florida pioneers once settled. Walk along the barrier islands riddled with seashells, washed ashore along the sandy beaches. Come aboard our boat for an ecological and historical tour - a memorable adventure for the whole family! Relax and experience the essence of old Florida. Thank you for visiting our site.

I highly recommend Island Gypsy Excursions. Nancy and Martin was so nice and very professional. I felt completely safe the entire trip. Nancy is so knowledgeable about the area and is a great Captain. Anyone looking for a fun, safe and exciting boat Excursion- you will not be disappointed.

Nancy and Martin were excellent hosts to my husband and two fur boys (who were welcome with permission). We got a very thorough and information packed tour of islands and rivers south of Marco Island to the really beautiful Cape Romano and sublime dome house (that will not be standing much longer.) We encountered many dolphin, a manatee, and many... More

Nancy and Martin were very welcoming and awesome. They took us on a tour around the 10 thousand Islands. We especially wanted to visit Cape Romano and the Dome houses so we also did that. We got a very close encounter with dolphins. We saw many of them and they would swim next to our boat. That was an incredible... More

Nancy and Martin welcomed us on board, after keeping us informed of the weather and the wind by email and phone the day before. We arrived at half twelve, and we headed out through the waterways of Marco island for our tour. We cruised through the islands and mangrove islands for a couple of hours then went to cape Romano...

I've been wanting to go see the Dome Home and 10,000 Islands for a few years, as I am a big fan of abandoned places and anything historic. I researched on-line to find a tour company that would be more flexible than a traditional tourist tour, because I also want to go see Dismal Key. After reading the reviews about... More

Nancy is terrific! Ready to answer any questions we had, as well as provide the history and importance of the area. Her extensive knowledge and experience with the wildlife and land there was beyond impressive. I enjoyed seeing her get just as excited as we did to spot a shy manatee, playful dolphins, birds, rare seashells etc. The day was... More

I did a 3 hour combination boat ride and Cape Romano island. The highlight of our trip was the dolphins surfing the wake of our boat. Nancy (the Captain) is very friendly and knowledgeable she showed us wildlife and plantlife we'd never seen before. We loved the unique private tour and she also prepared snacks, water and sodas. She was... More

Due to high winds, we altered our destination to the Marco River tour. Nancy, our guide, is quite knowledgeable of the history of the Calusa Indians and Marco Island, as well as the flora and fauna of the area. We saw dolphins, nesting ospreys, and even a sea turtle on this excursion. This is my second tour with Nancy and... More
