A really nice way to spend a morning. It was informational on the way to and from the island and the shelling was great. We saw dolphins playing near the boat and in the wake. We had fun.

The ecotour was awesome. Our guide was so knowledgeable, he even teaches classes at Coast Guard. Lived seeing lots of wild birds, alligators, dolphins and shelling/exploring on Whitehorse Day. Hurricane had damaged the mangroves but some were showing New growth. Hurricane had also thinned the manatees

Stopping at White Horse Key was the best part of the trip, wish we could have stayed longer, many different shells than you normally find around Marco and Naples.

I took my husband, 2 kids 15 and 11 and in-laws on this 3 days ago. It exceeded my expectations and we left nothing short of thrilled w/our experience! We had Captain Mike who was fabulous! He's a Coast Guard instructor and a wealth of information. Plus, he was FUN! He let my kids help drive the boat, which was a highlight. We saw alligators, many herons, a bald eagle and much more. But, by far, the highlight of the trip was when we literally interacted with wild dolphins. Mike was able to get the dolphins to play in the wake of his boat, which meant they were only 3-4 feet away from us! No lie, I cried : So, this was without a doubt, the highlight of our trip and i would highly recommend it. Captain Mike is the best!

Great wildlife sighting with easygoing, experienced guide. 4 dolphins played around our boat for 30 mins. Dozen bird species incl. pink spoonbill, gators. Note that manatees haven’t been seen in the region since Irma. May come back in spring.

This was so much fun, from the boat ride itself to the excellent local guide with his knowledge of local fauna. And, yes, we saw a family of manatees.

Fantastic morning on the water with Capt David who was very knowledgeable and had the best 'eagle' eye for spotting wildlife. Saw a Mum and baby Manatee, Alligator and dolphins plus enjoyed 'shell island' complete with turtle nests. Boat was very comfortable, has shade for those who need it and is very stable. Perfect activity for everyone, especially families.

What an amazing day we had! Perfect timing with the weather, too. There were 5 of us on the boat and between all of us this is what we saw among the 10,000 Islands:
Red Mangroves, Black Mangroves, several manatees, including an incredible viewing of a momma and her baby...a newborn just days old riding on her back, 1 stingray, a Lemonhead shark, a few dolphins, a rat snake and various birds even tho most have migrated already there were still plenty of pelicans, white egrets, blue heron, spoonbills and an eagle. saltlifebeauty Thanks, Patrick for setting this weekend up for us
