The tour got off to a slow start as the first stop was by the bridge connecting Goodland to Marco Island. While the history was mildly interesting, it didn't warrant the time devoted to it and we could tell our grandkids (8 and 12), were quite bored by it. However, once we left the bridge, it got much better. We got up close to a nesting osprey, which was fascinating, and then got going fairly fast between the mangroves. The kids really enjoyed that, especially when we did a few 360s. We learned the history of smuggling thru the 10,000 islands, from the Prohibition Era, and more recent drug smuggling. On the way back, the kids got to steer the boat, including 360s and that was the highlight for them. Te tour is a bit pricey but everyone in our party enjoyed it.
Food is available at Stan's, right next to the dock and you'll get a 10% discount for taking the airboat tour.
