“A wonderful way to spend a few hours on the water”

Marco Island Boat Tours
Ranked #2 of 19 Tours in Goodland
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Only 10 minutes from the beaches of Marco Island you can experience the 10,000 Islands area of the Everglades. Enjoy a 2 hour Birding, Dolphin and Wildlife Photo Eco Tour is a very comfortable power boat. Designed specifically for families the 3.5 hour 10,000 Eco Excursion is a hands on learning experience. Our most popular experience, however, is the Boat Assisted Kayak Eco Tour. Daily departures are limited to six guests, so reservations are required.
Useful Information: Activities for young children

We booked the 2 hour birding/photo tour and ended up being the only 2 on the boat. Drew was our guide for the trip, and he was fantastic - very knowledgeable about the environment and the wildlife. We saw dolphins on the way out, and a lot of different birds. Unfortunately, Drew said that he felt a little disappointed that he wasn't able to find some more unusual things (such as different fish, etc), but we had a great time regardless. We booked as part of a package deal through Expedia. We were staying on Fort Myers Beach, so we made a day-trip of it by eating at Marker 8 in Goodland, as suggested by Drew. It's on the water and just up the road from the marina, and was just as Drew described it - a hole in the wall with good food.

If you're looking for a nice way to get out on the water that doesn't involve kayaking or a fishing pole, this is a great option with a very personable and knowledgeable guide.

Captain Drew was awesome! He was very informative! We saw a manatee, dolphins, sting ray, and multiple kinds of birds. Captain Drew got really close to the manatee and the dolphins were swimming in the boats waves as we were going! Was well worth the money and was a very relaxing 2 hour boat ride. Zig zagging through the mangroves was very cool!
