Marco Island Dolphin-Watching Tour
US$65.00
Overview
Look for dolphins in the waters of the Ten Thousand Islands on this boat tour from Marco Island. With a captain-guide, you'll explore a piece of Florida's gulf coast to see and learn about the natural environment.
What to Expect

Take an unforgettable boat ride into the Ten Thousand Islands to witness bottlenose dolphins play in their natural habitat. This two hour guided ecotour is tailored to immerse you in a chain of islands and mangrove islets off the coast of southwest Florida. During the tour, you will learn important facts about the history of this area, as well as the flora and fauna that makes Marco Island and its surroundings a unique destination. Our friendly and knowledgeable Captains will identify different birds such as the Snowy Egret, Blue Heron and Roseate Spoonbill, among others. Depending on the time of the year you visit, we can also spot manatees and sea turtles. We guarantee dolphin sightseeing during this tour. Dolphins are non-migratory which means they are in the area year-round and our captains are very familiar with where to find them.

It is definitely recommended to bring plenty of water and sunscreen for this type of trip as it can get very hot under the Florida sun!  Caxambas Park Marina is only a 10 minute drive from anywhere on Marco Island.

A must see attraction in Marco Island!

Capitan Andrew is the best! Very attentive, easy going and knowledgable. We saw dolphins, manatees, birds...took hundreds of pictures and coolest videos. Cape Romano was a nice surprise. I highly recommended this company.More
