Island Gypsy Excursions offer their guests a chance to see and explore the natural beauty of Southwest Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands mangrove ecosystem. Enjoy the wildlife in this pristine estuary, aboard our 24’ shallow draft boat, as we meander through the mangrove lined passages where the Calusa Indians and early Florida pioneers once settled. Walk along the barrier islands riddled with seashells, washed ashore along the sandy beaches. Come aboard our boat for an ecological and historical tour - a memorable adventure for the whole family! Relax and experience the essence of old Florida. Thank you for visiting our site.

If you're looking for a fun, informative, and exciting boat trip, this is it! We saw wild dolphins, manatees, and several different birds. Captain Nancy and first mate Martin are the absolute best! You won't regret booking this trip!
