Marco Island: 10,000 Islands Shelling Tour by Boat

1. Marco Island: 10,000 Islands Shelling Tour by Boat

Learn the fine art of shell collecting on the remote barrier island beaches of Florida’s 10,000 Islands, and escape the shelling hordes of Marco Island and Captiva. Make your own way to Goodland Boating Park to climb aboard a boat that will take you to remote beaches that have not been picked over by others. Few shell collectors know about - or can get to - the beaches of these islands, resulting in pristine shelling opportunities. Touring in small groups of no more than 6 people, you will be led by a shelling guide with decades of experience. Learn about the nuances of the tide, winds and locations that affect shelling, and the life cycle and habitat of different species. Your guide even has the knack of finding the Gulf Coast's most prized shell treasure; the junonia!

Everglades National Park: Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour

2. Everglades National Park: Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour

The Everglades area is home to a vast and varied ecosystem containing the largest mangrove forest in North America. The unique Everglades lakes, surrounded by mangroves, are refuges and nursery grounds for herons, egrets, stilts, ducks, wood storks, spoonbills, alligators, otters, and a variety of cute little fish. The Everglades National Park Mangrove Tunnel Kayak Eco-Tour takes you inside the unique mangrove ecosystem in a stable "sit-on-top" kayak (no previous experience required). Weave through the interconnecting, narrow lakes and flowing tidal creeks. Float through tunnels in the mangrove forest, created by the dense mangrove growth up the edges and even over the tops of the interlocking creeks and narrow lakes. The mangrove tunnels make for a surreal and mystical experience with the sunlight shimmering through the canopy, the stillness of the forest vegetation and the sounds of the forest itself. Enjoy learning a wealth of information on the colorful local history of Everglades National Park and its wonderful wildlife and flora.

What people are saying about Fort Myers

Our tour guide, Don, was very knowledgeable and interactive. The kayaking itself was fun and a great experience. We were personally looking for something a little more unique than the typical air boat ride. Kayaking allowed us to get close to the alligators while still observing from a safe and respectable distance. Don included a lot of information about the wildlife and his personal experiences. Would definitely recommend this to anyone!

We had a wonderful time shelling with 10,000 islands. Our captains were so incredibly knowledgeable and kind! It was so informative and we saw a lot of wildlife on the boat as well! I am so glad we decided to go with 10,000 islands for a shelling tour. The island we were on was very big and spacious and had tons of shells. We had a lot of time on the island itself as well as on the boat watching dolphins.

This was a very educational and entertaining trip. Our guide, Don, was amazingly knowledgeable and obviously in love with the Everglades and Big Cypress parks. We saw not one, but two alligators, which is now a tale my grandson can tell. Really good stuff! NOTE: Buy the best bug juice you can. There are a LOT of hungry mosquitos.

The boat ride to island was beautiful. Saw several dolphin families and our driver got them to jump in the boats w as me. Very informative about shelling

We had an amazing experience. Well worth the money.
