Departing from Caxambas Park Marina on the south end of Marco Island, we will take a fifteen minute boat ride from our launch location to Cape Romano. Once we arrive, our Captains will explain the amazing story of the infamous Dome Houses. This is a very popular point of interest that tourists come to see year round. After viewing Cape Romano, we will stop on a private beach in search of the most exotic tropical sea shells that the Gulf coast is known for. This is a semi-private or private tour. Our boats are very kid friendly, with comfortable seating and a ladder for easy boarding. The Gulf Coast of Florida has a lot to offer when it comes to hidden and not so hidden coastal treasure hunts. This guided boat tour will take you to a deserted beach where you will find beautiful shells that you will take home with you as a Marco Island souvenir . Our guests ranged from very young children to adults, this is a tour designed for every age group and will keep everyone engaged during the search of these tropical treasures while you walk the white sandy beaches searching for the perfect shell. Florida Adventures and Rentals, is committed to teach our guests about to ecology that makes the Rookery Bay Reserve and the Ten Thousand Islands a tropical paradise.

    We were the only ones on the tour so Capt Marco said we could leave early. He did a great job explaining everything about Marco Island and all the other sites we saw. We found alot of shells and he even gave us ones he found. Saw lots of dolphins but only 2 wanted to play behind

    This was a last minute thing but turned out to be a highlight of our trip. Capt. Marco was excellent, very knowledgeable and personable. In addition to collecting shells, we saw many different birds, a few manatees and had some dolphins join us for awhile surfing the boat wake.

    Dear Boyd, Thank you very much for leaving an excellent review for Captain Marco and our company on Trip Advisor. We love to hear that you enjoyed every part of the tour, from shelling to the encounter of different animals. Our Captains are Florida Naturalists, and take pride in preserving this area and its fauna, Marco wouldn't go by an animal that needs to be rescued, as you experienced. Teaching our guests to take care of the local wildlife is also part of our mission. Once again, thank you so much for your business and we hope to have back in our tours in the near future. Kind Regards, Sole Reilly, Managing Director.
