Overview

The Ten Thousand Islands are a chain of islands and mangroves just south of Marco Island. Native Americans inhabited the islands for thousands of years, but are now uninhabited except for an amazing array of wildlife and untouched nature.

We will use Hobie kayak ( with pedals ) and stop on different sized islands, and we'll find a boundless range of seashells waiting for us to show us their secrets - with some dolphins and manatees to keep us company while we move.

We took the trip on Jan 8th 2022, our guide was excellent, clearly doing this for the right reasons, helping his customers better understand the florida wildlife eco-system so they can do their part to preserve it. The tour feature Peddle kayaks, which are great ! The secluded beach, shell hunting, navigating our kayaks through a mangrove channel and seeing a mother / child dolphin pair - were tour highlights !

We had an amazing experience with Victor and Uly. They were so knowledgeable about the area and made the experience informative and fun. They provided water, and even cut a pineapple up for us at the end! Would easily do this trip again, thank you!

Juan was an excellent guide! His knowledge and appreciation for nature was evident. He made sure everyone on the tour learned and saw unique creatures. Our son really enjoyed catching (and releasing) horseshoe crabs. The Hobie kayaks were so easy to use. We went miles and never got tired. It was a great trip. Thank you, Juan!

Our kayak trek was fantastic in all aspects. Juan provided excellent safety and operational guidance throughout the event. The equipment was best in class, and the company’s stewardship of the environment was evidenced.Juan’s keen ability to find and identify all types of water and plant species and his knowledge of their role in the ecosystem made the tour super informative and impactful for us.I highly recommend taking this activity!

Such an outstanding experience with tour guides who genuinely have a passion for making sure their guests are fully accommodated and enjoying themselves. Rammel and Juan were fantastic and made the tour a wonderful part of our Florida vacation, we booked it at the last minute and realized later how lucky we got to be a part of this experience!

Can I do a review of 1000 out of 10? Because that what I want to leave for these guys. We went out the day after Christmas expecting a group of 30 people and guided on specific paths but leave that in the past. We had Juan as our guide, we were probably the luckiest group ever because it was just him, my significant other, and myself. And he set the bar so high for any tour. We got there and he invited us over and told us how it would go. We got out on the water and he knew everything about the marine life, the mangroves. We saw manitees and dolphins. We got amazing views and pictures (Juan was taking amazing pictures of us and the marine life) We learned a bit about all the life out there. Amazing shells found every stop. Sand dollars that fill your hands. We really can't stop gushing about this tour. We started coming back from the first island and he said hold on and brought a plate of fresh pineapple. The kayaks were amazing and so easy to use with plenty of room for storage, we were worried since we didn't have any waterproof phone holders and he busted two out for us like it was nothing. You can really tell Juan loved being out there. Yes I understand this can be a bit bias since it was just a two person experience. But I can tell that even if it was 12. It would feel amazingly personal and a once in a lifetime tour, with guides that truly care about the ecosystem they tour.

Everyone in our party had a great time Guides have very knowledgeable and showed us some interesting sea creatures. Pedals on kayaks made it much easier to cover the distance to mangroves. Mangrove tunnels were fun. Wish we went through more of them. We made 2 stops and collected so many pretty shells. They took pics and sent them to us after the tour. This excursion was well worth the money.

If you are looking to see some nature, this tour is the way to go. Rammel and Juan were terrific guides. They are very experienced and knowledgeable about the ecosystem in the 10,000 Islands. They were able to point out to us so many things that we would have missed if we had been out on our own. We saw all the highlights ... dolphins, manatees, shells, starfish, mangroves, and birds.

This was the best guided tour we have EVER been on. Our wonderful and kind local guides made extra efforts to make sure everyone in our group was comfortable and enjoying themselves. It was a windy, chilly and cloudy day, but we were expertly guided around the islands and the currents to magnificent and isolated shelling beaches where treasures abounded! In the middle of it all we were offered freshly sliced pineapple by Juan! The guides were oh so kind, but my favorite part about them was their absolute love and reverence for the special places we toured. We were given very detailed descriptions of many types of shells, and also live starfish, urchins, conches, crabs, etc. Highly recommended! My 7-year old son will never forget this experience (nor will his parents)!

This tour was FANTASTIC. Our guides were amazing. Not only did we get to do all the kayaking, island hopping, picture taking, shell hunting that you would expect, the information from the guides about the Marco Island area and it’s ecosystem was phenomenal. Thanks for a great time out on the water today!!!
