  • AWESOME!

    What an experience! Dolphins so close you could almost touch them. Water was like glass! The boats are the coolest! I gotta get me one! Doug was awesome and had lots of other insider suggestions of things to do. Definitely a "can't miss" on your itinerary!

  • DON'T MISS THIS!

    This is a great way to spend half of a day on the water in the 10,000 Islands. We just spent 2 weeks on Marco Island (our 19th Christmas there). I took my 11 year old niece Colleen. She was delighted to hear that we would be driving the boat ourselves. We have lots of boating experience and this little boat really made for a great time. The ride was really fun, (zippy, quiet, and stable). We loved the scenery in the backwater including the stop at a secluded beach for a little time to meet the other boaters and discuss the fun. Donnie did a great job navigating the maze of mangrove waterways and shared his knowledge of the area with us at the stop. This adventure will be first on our list for our next visit to Marco Island later this year.

  • THE BEST!

    I had some trepidation about this adventure—I'm more of a kayaker than a motor-boater—but this was the best of both worlds. The boat was close to the water, we could cover more area than we could have in a kayak, and we got up close and personal with dozens (yes, dozens!) of dolphins—some riding the wake of a boat we rode beside, some fishing near an island, some playing in the bay and one that leapt right out of the water in front of us. What a show! Lisa was a great guide; she was helpful, informative, playful, willing to make sure we had an experience we'll never forget. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  Travelling Poet – Michigan. Great Anniversary fun! My husband and I have been on the water most of our lives and neither have had as much fun as this.

This 3 hour adventure is like no other ! Interactive, historic, breathtaking and you get to drive your OWN boat!

This adventure leaves from the Marina located at 3200 San Marco Road (just under the Goodland Bridge) on Marco Island.  After a 15 minute brief (on how to drive the boats), we are underway and it’s off to a great boating experience.  Winding through the Mangroves around the 10,000 Islands on the water is as beautiful as it comes.  Narrow mangrove tunnels gives you a great driving experience.  The backwaters of Marco Island have many dolphins, manatees, shore birds and other sea life that can be seen along the way. About midway through the trip, there is a stop on a private island for shelling and swimming.  The entire trip will cover 30 to 40 miles of the most beautiful waterways around Marco and the Everglades.
