We had a very enjoyable afternoon trip out among the 10,000 Islands. Very informative, friendly guides. The day was gorgeous and was a quick glimpse into the island scenery off shore. The highlight was having a few dolphins swim and jump along side the boat...More

We were in Naples in early January and decided to go on the Everglades National Park Ten-thousand Islands boat tour at 11:30am on a Monday. I was with my mom and two kids ages 10 and 13. The whole crew was very friendly. They were...More

We did the 10,000 Islands Tour. This was a fantastic and informative tour. The Captain and first mate were excellent and provided us with interesting information about the Everglades. They were quick to spot various wildlife. Highly recommended

Total waste of time and money. I thought we would see overhanging trees and vines etc. All we saw was miles and miles of BORING tall grass!

We had hoped to go back into the swamp, but just rode around in open water instead. We enjoyed seeing dolphins, white pelicans, and other birds, and appreciated the length of the ride. However, Captain Ray’s description of dolphin reproduction (“Ladies, you’re not gonna like...More

The dolphins were really fun to watch. We were able to see a lot of water fowl including white and brown pelicans. We learned a lot about the mangroves from our tour guide and Captain Steve. The boat had plenty of space. We would do...More

Immersing ourselves in a close to nature environment was a good idea! Professional escorts and plentiful sights of differenet birds made this boat trip unforgettable. we were lucky enough, because a dolphin happened to chase us around!

It was a pretty good boat ride, about two hours. There were only 7 on the boat, so it was more personal. The waters were clear, we saw some dolphins, a big gathering of Great White Pelicans. I would definitely do it again.

I'd definitely choose the National Park over the commercial boat tours. We chose the mangrove tour over the airboat. It's a quiet little boat, there were only four of us on our tour. We saw manatees, and boating under the... More
