    On a typical 1 hour eco-tour, your captain will guide you through narrow mangrove channels in search for the Florida Key’s natural wildlife. Normally sighted during this tour are the rare American saltwater crocodile, many egrets, herons or ospreys, and iguanas. Sometimes dolphins and manatees are seen, and if you are lucky you may even have a chance to see the American bald eagle in flight. To see pictures of this tour check out our photo gallery.

 

     Taking a 2-3 hour eco-tour gives you more time on the water, increasing your opportunity to witness the wildlife surrounding you in their natural environment. Your captain will guide you along the coast line looking for creatures that inhabit Islamorada’s unique landscape, passing through many channels lined by shallow flats and mangrove islands. On these longer boat tours your captain can show you some of the local areas such as “cow pens” and “toilet bowl cut” which are very neat to see but also hold a place in the history of the Florida Keys.
 
   
 

4-5 hour Everglades eco-tour
      
   

 
 

The Florida Bay is also known as Everglades National State Park. Leaving from Islamorada, it takes approximately 2 hours to reach the southern tip of Florida better known as Flamingo. Flamingo state park has a place to dock so you can get out and explore a little of the terrain. There are restroom facilities and refreshments available for purchase on site. On your boat ride over to Flamingo your captain will use her experienced navigation skills to lead you through many narrow channels lined by mangrove and flats as shallow as 4 inches. Wildlife is extremely abundant out here and can be easily seen since the water is not deep. Some of the animals we see on these trips consist of sharks, bonefish, wading birds, dolphins, and crocodiles. During the colder months of the year roseate spoonbills and white pelicans migrate to the Florida bay so sightings are common. Polarized sunglasses are a necessity to enjoy the surroundings in their most beautiful array. If you have your own it would be great to bring them but your captain will provide a pair for you if needed.
