Discover Wildlife in the Ten Thousand Islands on a Boat Tour

Marco Island Dolphin Tours

As part of the largest expanses of mangrove forest in North America, the Ten Thousand Islands are full of animal and plant species to discover. About 200 species have been documented in this area, and over 189 species of birds use the refuge at some time during the year as part of their migration patterns. From marine wildlife like bottle-nosed dolphins and the West Indian manatee to mammals like the river otter and raccoon, you’re sure to see countless species as you explore the Ten Thousand Islands with us. You may also spot a peregrine falcon, bald eagle, wood stork, or Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles.

The refuge includes 35,000 acres and is used by the public for recreational purposes, primarily on boat tours for birding, fishing, shelling, and dolphin-watching. While it’s open for the public to enjoy, it’s also important to remember that the refuge is full of endangered species and serves as rich and diverse habitat in North America. Therefore, one of the primary objectives of each of our boat tours is to allow you to experience the magnificence of this area without disrupting or disturbing the plant and animal life.

Dolphin tours: Get up close and personal with a bottle-nosed dolphin in the Ten Thousand Islands on one of our dolphin tours. Our guide will take you to an area where you’re most likely to see dolphins and snap some photos of them.

Bird watching tours: The Ten Thousand Islands are home to almost 200 bird species who migrate through the area at different times of the year. Our birding tour is one of the best ways to see the unique birds that call this refuge home.

Shelling tours: Combing the beach for shells is more than just a tourist activity in the Ten Thousand Islands. Our shelling tour will teach you all about the shells you see and collect, including some rare shells that can only be found in the refuge.

Eco tours: Want to explore the Ten Thousand Islands but feel worried about sustainability? We have an eco tour you can take so you can explore the refuge at your own pace and in an eco-friendly and responsible way.

Family fun tours: Taking your kids on a boat tour doesn’t always work out — kids get bored easily. On our family tours, we provide activities geared specifically toward children and families so you can be sure your little ones are having a good time.

The Best Day Trips and Excursions on Marco Island

You have many options for boat tours on Marco Island, but none put quite as much care and consideration into their tours as we do. We aim to make all of our tours educational, so you’re not just sightseeing but you’re also learning and discovering. We only employ guides who are experts in the species that inhabit the refuge, so you can feel free to ask them anything while you’re on a tour.

We avoid putting you shoulder to shoulder with complete strangers while on our tours, as we want you to relax and enjoy your time spent discovering the refuge. That being said, it’s never a bad thing to meet new people when you’re on a tour!

Things to see while on a boat tour

Marco Island Dolphin Tours

The Ten Thousand Islands is home to some incredible creatures, including the friendly bottle-nosed dolphins. These animals aren’t afraid to approach our tour boats and love playing and splashing around in the water. Our boats get close enough for you to see the dolphins, without disturbing their habitat too much. You’ll also learn more about this species and their survival habits in the refuge.

Shelling and Birding Tours on Marco Island

We offer tours dedicated exclusively to collecting shells and watching birds. Our shelling tour lets you discover the unique shells that wash up on the island shores of the refuge, as well as collect some to bring home as a keepsake. On our bird-watching tour, you can spot some of the many bird species that call this refuge home, and the birds you may see change depending on the time of year you take the tour.

Marco Island Eco Tours and Family Fun Tours

Our boating company offers specialty tours like eco tours and family fun tours to help make your experience in the Ten Thousand Islands unforgettable. Book an eco tour so you make a minimal impact on the refuge and navigate a small vessel by yourself. You can decide where to go and travel at your own pace. Our family fun tours are perfect for family day trips and kids who get bored easily!

What to Expect on One of Our Boat Tours

On our boat tours, you’ll always have an experienced tour guide to explain to you what you’re seeing and where you’re heading in the Ten Thousand Islands. Some of our tours have a captain to operate the boat and a tour guide dedicated solely to providing you with information, while on other tours the captain of the boat and the tour guide are one and the same. All of our tours set out from our dock on Marco Island and you can check our website or give us a call to see which tours leave at which times of the day. We always ask you to be at the dock at least 15 minutes before the boat leaves, so we have plenty of time for everyone to board and get the boat prepared.

Our tours all explore the Ten Thousand Islands, though some head into different parts than others. We have tours exclusively for dolphin-watching, birding, and shelling, and each may take place in a slightly different area. Also, the tour route may change depending on the time of year to accommodate for animals’ migration patterns — especially if you’re on one of our bird-watching tours. Our tours run between 2.5 and 3 hours and you can check the specific information for your tour to learn more.

Book a Private Boat Tour

If you have a large group or prefer not to head out on a boat with strangers, you can book a private boat tour. On one of our private boats, you and your party will have the undivided attention of the tour guide, who will be available to answer all of your questions and complete small demonstrations. They’ll also help you navigate the Ten Thousand Islands by showing you on the map where your tour is currently located.

With our private tours, you can go ashore on one of the barrier islands to look for sea shells and stretch your legs. If you’re someone who likes to ask a lot of questions or you have someone in your party with special needs, our private boat tour might be better for you.
