My family rented two Kayaks today and it was really fun. The owners were extremely nice, caring, and helpful. We explored for 2 hours and saw a dolphin up close! There were also lots of pelicans and prey birds in the surroundings. A very cool experience!

My husband and I booked a three hour tour of Marco Island with Dreamlander Tours in the hopes of doing some shelling on a barrier island as well as seeing and photographing some osprey and dolphins. We were not disappointed! Our captain brought the boat right past a number of osprey nests, so that we were able to see even some young birds in the nests as well as the parents who were guarding them. Along the route to the island, we also saw a manatee, some pelicans and a great blue heron. The shelling was great fun, and on our return trip, we were able to see some dolphins too. In fact a mother with her two young surfaced just in front of my husband . Our captain was very friendly and full of information! A most enjoyable trip; one we would highly recommend!

Wanted to collect shells for new beach home. A beautiful morning with knowledgable captain george. Very nice and accommodating. Lucky for my sister and I we were the only ones booked. Saw many pods of dolphin and as an extra bonus got a cd of the trip delivered to the marriott where we were staying. Well well worth th $55!

Often times my family and I go on trips without really having set plans or someone to guide us through events. Dreamlander tours really made our visit to Marco Island memorable and enjoyable. The weather was perfect and Kieu and Steven were very informational. I plan to come here again with my family for years to come!

Was on Spring Break on Marco Island and wanted to get out on the water and see some dolphins up close. Also didn't want to be on a boat with a bunch of other people (or I should say, my husband didn't!). We were able to reserve a 22ft pontoon, for just our family, for a tour around Marco's waters. Captain George was a great tour guide! Not only found us some dolphins, but pointed out other wildlife as well. Glad that he didn't take us out on the big, choppy water that day-stayed in the bay by the causeway. Made it more enjoyable for everyone from 65yr old Grandma to my youngest child who's 6yrs old. The whole fam said that was their fav day of the trip and we'll definately book another trip next time we're on Marco! Could also bring on our own cooler with beer/pop/snacks.
