We chartered a boat one day during our stay in Naples. On one of our stops, our captain dropped us on one of the 10,000 islands. The seashells we collected were absolutely incredible! Everyone enjoyed the experience.

Lookout tower is very nice. Alligators were prevalent. As someone else mentioned, you might want to keep your pets and/or children in-hand for this one! My 12y/o son may not have been in actual danger, but at one point he ran past a ~9 foot...More

The boat ride is worth taking. Beautiful scenery and informative commentary. If you're going down to Everglades City, then make a point of doing this activity.

The views are fantastic at sunset. There are a few areas to pull off and enjoy the area, as well as canoe launches and fishing areas. Although we could not find a picnic spot with a grill, there are plenty of wayside parks to relax...More

The TEN THOUSAND ISLANDS NWR is an amazing wonderland of mangrove island, some many species of birds and dolphins abound. Take either or both tour boat rides, either into the back waters of the Everglades or out into the 10,0000 islands. Both are great!
