We took a "boat tour" and requested this as a destination spot. The waters were a little rough getting there...which I loved, I want it to feel like the ocean, but it was really neat to see this place that used to be someone's home... getting the facts, there are several stories floating around out there.

If you leave Marco Island you should definitely check this place out.

The trip out to the ruins was a bit rough but well worth the trip. We didn't actually get out of the boat and the domes were completely in the water. Not sure if when the tide is out you can walk around or not but our Captain got us pretty close. I would definitely recommend seeing this as it may not be there much longer.

the neat buildings are now in the water, off the beach, and may even be covered completely in a few years! it's a great ride to cape romano, as you can take the back water there from caxambas pass and then head home on the gulf side if it's not too rough. great beach!

Over the years this has become a more popular place to visit. However, this past year the building has become separated from the mainland. In essence this adds to the mystery of the structure. Not many people anchor here anymore since you can't walk through the domed house. This makes it a place to find a little bit of solitude. Not a lot of shelling but a nice place to sit and listen to the waves hitting the shore.

Cape Romano is a cape at the southern end of Caxambas Island, just south of Marco Island and northwest of the Ten Thousand Islands in Collier County, Florida. That only means that we have 9999 islands to explore. We had a terrific time while kayaking/camping there last week.
