Overview
Look for dolphins on a boat tour from Marco Island that takes you into the waters of the Ten Thousand Islands. Dolphins and an array of other wildlife make their home among the mangroves of Florida's Gulf Coast, and this short boat ride is a great way to spot them. Hear insightful commentary from your captain as you take in the lush scenery.

The captain knew just where to find the dolphins and got them surf in the wake. The guide was full of enthusiasm and knowledge. Great experience. Just the right size boat to get up close to the dolphins.

We saw a pod of dolphins and Captain Nate was able to get them to interact with the wake of the boat. Very cool. The dome homes were incredible. We got caught in a storm and Captain Nate’s excellent boating skills got us to safety. Very professional and experienced.
