Island Gypsy Excursions offer their guests a chance to see and explore the natural beauty of Southwest Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands mangrove ecosystem. Enjoy the wildlife in this pristine estuary, aboard our 24’ shallow draft boat, as we meander through the mangrove lined passages where the Calusa Indians and early Florida pioneers once settled. Walk along the barrier islands riddled with seashells, washed ashore along the sandy beaches. Come aboard our boat for an ecological and historical tour - a memorable adventure for the whole family! Relax and experience the essence of old Florida. Thank you for visiting our site.

My partner and I had a blast on our tour with Nancy and Martin! The tour came highly recommended from my sister and i'm so glad I took her advise. We got to see everything we wanted (Dolphins, the Dome House, 10,000 Islands, and birds galore!) plus we learned so much along the way. It was the perfect way to... More

We wanted a smaller personal tour, and our main objective was to see the dome house. We met Nancy and Martin at their house, and took off in the boat from the canal. Nancy gave us a fabulous, very personalized tour, and we saw the dome house plus much more. She really knows the area's wildlife, and we got to... More

We wanted a personal tour, not a big boat with lots of people and that is why we picked Island Gypsy Excursions. We saw what we wanted, birds, dolphins, history and lots of nature. Coming in at sunset and seeing all the birds landing on the islands was a treat. It was a relaxing way to end our trip.

My friend and I enjoyed our first trip with Nancy and Martin so very much that we took a second trip 2 days later with a few more friends. Our first trip was a delight watching the dolphins, viewing various birds and looking at the Cape Romano home. They took so much time with us and were enthusiastic and knowledgeable.... More

We loved touring the Ten Thousand Islands with Nancy and Martin! We learned about birds, local nature information, Marco Island development history, shelling... The attention to detail, personalized hospitality and thoughtfulness put into this excursion made it a favorite for us to recommend to all tripadvisor travelers. We will definitely return!

Nancy was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the local area, it's history and it's ecology. Very photographer friendly! Nancy and Martin were fantastic hosts- so friendly and kind! The beach we stopped at had a great variety of shells. I choose to schedule the Cape Romano Shelling & Ecological Tour to see the Dome House. This was an unforgettable experience... More

Nancy and Martin were excellent hosts to my husband and two fur boys (who were welcome with permission). We got a very thorough and information packed tour of islands and rivers south of Marco Island to the really beautiful Cape Romano and sublime dome house (that will not be standing much longer.) We encountered many dolphin, a manatee, and many... More

Nancy and Martin were very welcoming and awesome. They took us on a tour around the 10 thousand Islands. We especially wanted to visit Cape Romano and the Dome houses so we also did that. We got a very close encounter with dolphins. We saw many of them and they would swim next to our boat. That was an incredible... More
