Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This boat trip takes one off shore and thus gives the opportunity to see dolphin and manatee in the open water as well as the some birds you might not see in other parts of the Everglades.

We just stopped because we saw a parking lot and we wanted to get a better look at some amazing dew-topped spiderwebs. But there was a short walk on a paved trail to a tower, which allowed us to observe a vast array of birds and gators across a gorgeous marsh. Saw roseate spoonbills, great blue herons, tri-colored herons, snowy egrets, anhingas sunning, and more, all at once!

Stopped at the trail and it seemed a bit run down with empty cups and liter scattered about? The Marsh trail looks a tad overgrown.

This is where we go to play, and I could not imagine a better place!
There is plenty of room to find a private spot no matter when you go. Shells and treasures are plentiful and the fishing is wonderful.

This little gem is a fantastic place to view wildlife. It is only a short drive from Marco Island with plenty of parking and a very easy walking trail. We always spot good size gators and a numerous birds, including the beautiful roseate spoonbills.

On our way to Marco Island we stopped at Everglade City and did the 10,000 island boat tour. Tour was and hour and a half with 2 naturalists on board. Saw lots of birds, dolphins, manatee's and mangrove trees. Very relaxing and informative ride on a lovely sunny afternoon.

If you like bird watching this is a must. The observation tower off 41, along the marsh trail is amazing. Just a short walk and you feel like you are a world away. Sunrise is beautiful, but bring bug spray. I went back later in the day, and it was still amazing...plus the gators and crocodiles where awake! Bring a camera and binoculars if you can.

We took a tour of the Ten Thousand Islands via Jet Ski! It was great to be out on the water and see Marco Island from that vantage point. My favorite parts of the tour were seeing dolphins in the bay, speeding full throttle across open water, and then careening into the narrows between islands where the mangroves almost touch. You get to swerve between these narrow water ways and feel like you are going to touch the trees on both sides. Very cool. We went with WowAdventures.com. Great tour guide! If you have back or neck issues, a jet ski is probably not for you b/c of the pounding over the waves.

Really good for $37.00 each. Supposed to be 90 minutes, went over by 15 minutes due to seeing dolphins. Good narration by captain. Fun outing.
