Captains Chris and Steve were great. Very knowledgeable about the ecosystem, engaging, and provided for a great visit and shelling experience on Cape Romano. Saw dolphins, various birds, the Dome structures, and a variety of shells. Highly recommend this tour.
This was a great outing. Capt Chris and Marco were excellent guides, enthusiastic and informative. I would highly recommend it. Good for families and friends, young and old. Very glad we booked it.
Ask for Captain Marco - he is a native of Marco Island and a master naturalist who knows every bird, shell, animal, canal, tree and the history of the island. I would do it again in a second.
Captain Marco surpassed our explanation by a long shot! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and participation directly w my family! I will definitely do this tour again and hopefully w Captain Marco.
Great boat tour of Cape Romano. Collected beautiful shells to take home.
Well worth the money for this trip.
Saw several Dolfins feeding.
Chris was a great tour guide.
What a hidden gem experience here on Marco Island!!! Ideal activity for all ages we're 30-somethings. We took the 2-hour 9am boat tour. The perfect mix of calm waters, warm, bright sunshine and a cool coastal breeze!
- The tour company picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel even though the marina is only a few blocks down the boardwalk which is very convenient.
- Capt. Chris was extremely hospitable and knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the area and island wildlife.
- Capt. Chris took us to a private beach for shelling. We found 100 beautiful conchs, welks, moon snails and even a full sand dollar! It's best to come on the morning tour before others get the best pickings!
- In addition to seeing several dolphins nearby, Capt. Chris raced a particularly playful one who jumped the waves in our wake for 10 minutes.
My wife and I highly recommend this tour to everyone who comes down here to Marco Island. We can't wait to bring our kids back here. They would love this tour, too!
One of the best Florida tour we've been on. Capt. Chris Was outstanding. Highly recommend seeing the Dome homes before they are gone!
Capt.Chris was great! He was very friendly, informative and accommodating. We forgot our sunscreen but no worries he had it covered as he pulled some out for us. It was a great tour where we got to see several different birds and had dolphins jumping in our wake. I had family visiting and they just loved this tour. 1st rate service with a smile. I highly recommend!
We had a wonderful experience. Captain Chris was the best!! He was knowledgeable and able to answer our questions. We saw lots of dolphins up close and personal. We even had a manatee to visit. I highly recommend.
