The Boat Tours


Drive through a chunk of the 10,000 islands.  You drive your own 2-seater boat and follow the guide through the water.  Watch wildlife such as dolphin, osprey, many different wading birds such as several types of heron, egret, ibis, and maybe a rosate spoonbill.  Of course there's always the pelican and cormorant.  We leave from Goodland just a couple miles from Marco Island and wind our way through the backwaters near Marco Island.

Expect to get at least a little wet.  We suggest bringing a towel.
Each boat has a cooler with a water for each person.

 

 

 

Riding side by side you can share the wonders of the 10,000 islands with someone else in the same boat, take your time driving and enjoy the sites. The boats are not very loud. They feature outboard motors and will travel a top speed of about 20-25 MPH.

 

You must be 18 to drive the boat (16 with a safe boating certificate) and at least 8 to ride on the tour.  Anyone born after January 1988 also must have a safe boating certificate in order to operate any vessel (including a jet-ski) in Florida waters. A safe boating certificate can be obtained for free (approx. 6 hour course) at Boatus.org or for $10 (quicker) at BoatEd.com.
