What to Expect
This tour departs from the historic fishing village of Goodland, Florida on the south end of Marco Island. This 3 hour excursion will take you through the mangrove forests and barrier islands that make up the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge on our custom skiff. 
In addition to exploring this coastal ecosystem in search of aquatic wildlife, you will also visit a quiet barrier island only accessible by boat. Once on the beach you will have plenty of time to search for rare shells and swim. 
Throughout the trip, you can expect to see Atlantic Bottle-nose Dolphin, the occasional Florida Manatee, and several diverse species of birds, such as pelicans, egrets, herons, kingfishers, eagles, osprey, and roseate spoonbill. Whether you're a visitor to south Florida or a long time resident, this trip is sure to please.
