What to Expect
Begin your guided tour with check-in at the Port of the Islands Resort prior to your selected morning or afternoon departure time. Meet your guide, board your boat, and head out on the water. Your first stop is the harbor area, where you have the opportunity to see manatees in their natural environment. Then continue to the Ten Thousand Islands. Though the water surrounding this system of mangrove islands is notoriously difficult to navigate, the abundance of wildlife is well worth the effort—plus your US Coast Guard-certified captain makes the trip with ease. Continue down Faka Union Canal en route to one of the largest mangrove forests in North America. Keep an eye out for alligators and dolphins on the way to your shelling destination at Whitehorse Key. Disembark and spend some time on the uninhabited shores, a popular locale among shellers. Your tour concludes at the original departure point.
