The Boat Assisted Kayak Eco Tour combines the best of a boating tour, a kayaking tour and a walking tour all into a single, wonderful experience! Your experience begins with a naturalist led boat tour into the 10,000 Islands Wildlife Refuge that surrounds Marco Island. It is one the most beautiful natural areas in Florida and one the few get to experience. Every day is different, but, you can expect to encounter a wide variety of wildlife depending on the day's conditions - manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, bald eagles, ospreys, herons, egrets, roseate spoonbills and many different species of shore birds.
Your Florida Master Naturalist guide and US Coast Guard Captain will introduce you to the area's unique ecosystems, its history and its culture. Your final destination will be a remote, uninhabited barrier island.
All tour boats carry required safety equipment for boating and kayaking.
Recommend guests bring sun screen, hat, and water. Bug repellent may be needed depending on the season.
