Overview

Drive your own 2 seat catamaran, while your guide leads you through the backwaters of Marco and the 10,000 Islands. Simply the best way to view nature only inches from the water.

Fun on the water! Great afternoon with granddaughter. During 3 hour tour saw dolphins, birds and stopped at a beach to do shelling. Beautiful day!

Conner was great. Gave us good instruction and then let us have enough freedom to have fun. Definitely worth doing. Up close and personal with some dolphins was a highlight for sure.
