Full description
Enjoy a private 3-hour Sightseeing/Eco-tour in South-West Florida on a 22 inch motorboat which has comfortable seating for all guests and is shaded by a T-Top (plus an additional bimini on very hot days). Pass through Naples Bay and head north, to an area consisting of 10,000 islands. South-West Florida has a vibrant ecosystem, and a variety of birds can be viewed, including blue herons, roseate spoonbills, and egrets. In the wintertime, ospreys are also often seen nesting on the channel markers.

Mammals such as bottle-nose dolphins and (a bit less frequently) manatees can be spotted, usually very close to the boat. Dolphins love to follow the vessel and play in its wake. Sometimes you can even encounter deer jumping in the shallow water areas, close to the mangroves.

Birds you usually can see are American White Pelicans, American Peregrine Falcon, anhinga, brown pelicans, black skimmers, double-crest cormorants, and egrets.
