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.

Nancy and Martin will take you on a very informative and relaxing private boat excursion. Private because they will take only your party even if it does not fill the boat.

My mother-in-law surprised us on our recent trip to Marco Island with an Island Gypsy Excursion. My first thought was, how are we going to pass the time? Will this just be another boring boat ride? From the moment I met Nancy and Martin, I knew this would be a boat tour like no other. Nancy is an incredible woman.... More

My mom took my husband and I and our 3 kids (ages 5, 7 and 8) on the boat tour of Marco Island. We had hoped to go see Cape Romano however the weather didn't cooperate and we were warned ahead of time that it wouldn't be possible. We decided to still go anyway and boy were we glad we... More

Just had a great excursion to Cape Romano with Nancy and Martin. These guys will make you feel like your family invited you out for the day and wanted to make sure you knew how special you are. Nancy has incredible knowledge of the area. She had worked professionally along the 10,000 islands for years so she can share insights... More

We read all the reviews for Marco tours, and selected this one based on the positive reviews. Best decision we ever made! Nancy and Martin are awesome! From our initial contact, Nancy was accommodating and flexible. We booked about seven days in advance of our trip, and she assured us she would keep an eye on the weather and tides... More

Nancy and Martin are absolutely the most gracious hosts from the start. As we were leaving Marco Island Nancy encouraged the dolphins to follow and play - they actually jumped out of the water, took a twist and dove right back in. Nancy shared from a whealth of knowledge about everything we encountered. Seeing the Dome Homes was a real... More

Captain Nancy and First Mate Martin were absolutely great! Their knowledge of the area's history and ecology, their passion for what they do, and their hospitality all combined to make our tour fascinating and fun. Nancy engaged the dolphins to swim with our boat, and knew the name of every bird we saw. Our tour ended at sunset as we... More

Great late afternoon cruise with Nancy and Martin at the helm. Fun, informative and yet personal! Saw several dolphins and voyaged out to the round home on the gulf. What a site.

If you're looking to do a boat tour while in southwest Florida, look no further and book a tour with Island Gypsy Excursions. While researching tours on TA I found this wonderful business which is run by a couple, Nancy and Martin. It is just the two of them doing private tours on their own private boat. I assumed a...

Nancy and Martin were fabulous! We had a spectacular day on the water. They made sure we were comfortable from start to finish and went out of their way for one of the members in our group with limited mobility. They really went above and beyond to ensure we saw everything we wanted and to make sure we had a... More
