“An awesome adventure around Marco Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

We planned 2 last minute adventures with Deamlander Tours and they accommodated our every needs for all are different aged kids 10-21, Thanks Kieu. We did the safari adventure one day and the 3 hour dolphin+shelling pontoon tour the next. Everyone loved the airboat and the rainforest and enjoyed an awesome tour with host Steve. Steve always had a cold water ready after every stop. Captain Josh helped bait my kids poles and we caught several fish of all kinds. You can not go wrong with Dreamlander Tours. Great People. Thanks again friends!

“Great Dolphin Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Could not have asked for a better time or weather yesterday on the 3 hour dolphin+shelling pontoon tour. Our 6 year old was pretty unsure about taking the boat ride but was saying it was the best day of his life on the return trip. Captain Josh is an extremely knowledgeable and well traveled young man but he understands very well how important it is for the kids to enjoy the experience for the family to have a great time. He was patient with the kids, taught them about the local wildlife, and kept a game of musical chairs going with a dolphin pod of 5 for over 20 minutes. At times they swam under the boat, and an experience that close up with dolphins in the wild made our kids' trip. The shelling was great on a fairly uninhabited one of the 10,000 islands. The owners, Q and Steve could not be any nicer-sharing their experiences and bending over backward trying to put together a last second tour for us the day before when our niece was in town. There appears to be many great tour company options in Marco Island, but you can't go wrong with Dreamlander.

“A FABULOUS way to spend part of your day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed at Cove Haven Holiday Inn property, and Dreamlander was just behind the building on the water. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive to just "take the nearest tour" to our hotel, but I was so impressed from moment one when I left a message at 9 pm, receiving a return call 15 minutes later. "Q" explained all of our options and was extremely accommodating given the fact that our party was a bit larger than the craft would be able to hold. She made it so that our party could partially go out on the pontoon boat and the rest on jet skis. We were told we were welcome to bring a cooler, so we were well prepared with food and drink for the 3 hour tour. The captain and the jet ski tour guide were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We chose to stay on the beach while different people in our party went out on the jet skis. Within hours, a cd with all of the photos taken were delivered to the front desk of our hotel. It was one of the best days we had while on the island!

“Waverunner trip and Fishing trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We booked 2 tours with this company. A waverunner tour and a fishing trip. Both were excellent. On the wave runner tour we saw Ospreys , pelicans , dolphins , manatees and countless different kinds of birds. The fishing trip was great fun. We are all beginners and both Captains helped us to cast and set the bait. We moved to 3 different locations , all relatively close to shore , to ensure we caught a variety of fish. Nothing big enough to eat though !! Dreamlander tours really try to make a difference and make your chosen trip enjoyable and fun. Very professional. We would not hesitate to use this company again.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This was a truly wonderful trip! We ( a family of 5 with one child aged 8) did the jet ski adventure tour. We booked his for 4 pm and spent 2 fantastic hours exploring the delights of the Marco Beach region of these hugely powerful jet skis. 3 can fit on a jet ski and you are very well looked after by one of their captains who will accompany you on the trip. We saw dolphins up close and personal and all number of wonderful birds. This is unbelievably great way to spend time as a family. I cannot recommend this highly enough! PS this not expensive - we needed to hire 2 jet skis which worked at 75 dollars each an hour.
