What to Expect
This tour departs from the historic fishing village of Goodland, Florida on the south end of Marco Island. This 3 hour excursion will take you through the mangrove forests and barrier islands that make up the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge on our custom skiff. 

In addition to exploring this coastal ecosystem in search of aquatic wildlife, you will also visit a quiet barrier island only accessible by boat. Once on the beach you will have plenty of time to search for rare shells and swim. 

Throughout the trip, you can expect to see Atlantic Bottle-nose Dolphin, the occasional Florida Manatee, and several diverse species of birds, such as pelicans, egrets, herons, kingfishers, eagles, osprey, and roseate spoonbill. Whether you're a visitor to south Florida or a long time resident, this trip is sure to please.

The captain was very knowledgeable on the wildlife and the area and made the trip good fun. There were plenty of opportunities to see dolphins and other wildlife on our trip and the scenery was lovely. Would recommend!

My girlfriends and I had a perfect morning with Eco Endeavors. Our captain, Nick, was knowledgeable and helped make the most of our 3 hour private boat tour. We went shelling on a private island, and had dolphins jumping in the wake of the boat. An unforgettable experience!

Booked the private trip and had Captain Dave and Christine as our guides. Both were incredibly knowledgeable and personable and both made sure that my family had a great time. Saw plenty of dolphins and countless birds along the way and my teenage girls found tons of shells.

Capt. Soto was perfect. I would plan this trip with him on every visit to Marco Island. He is very familiar with the area and wildlife. He shared a lot of local knowledge and stories. Fun to see all of the local birds, dolphins, deer, racoons, osprey, fish and more on the trip.
