Weird abandon dome homes. Find their interesting history with an internet search. They are on the Gulf about 5 miles south of Marco Island. It is only possible to reach them by either private boat or on a sea shell tour. Shelling is wonderful at the beach near the domes. Excellent reviews of "Sea Shell Boat Tours" on Marco Island, also reviewed on tripadvisor are available to read.

Once upon a time this was a neat sight to see, now...not so much! Most of the photos on this site are from years ago....everything is now IN the water. The beach that was once there, is gone! Yes, it is a piece of history, but you better see it fast, before it is gone forever!

Passed Cape Romano on a wave runner tour. Time is taking it's toll. While cool to see, water is under domes. Nice history, but wish had seen it in it's prime. Storms and erosion taking it's toll.

We all wanted to see the dome houses after we had read the article in Coastal Breeze,so we went on a catamaran trip which included a visit.Imagine our disappointment to find they had graffiti all over them,some imagination is required to see them in their former glory.Not really worth a visit.

The ruined dome houses look like something out of a sci-fi movie. Well worth the time, especially if you can see some dolphins and do some shelling along the way!
