Marco Island Scenic Cycling Tour

Cycle past beautiful homes set in an amazing environment of rare tropical plants and trees. See the unique protected wildlife of this beautiful island as you pedal past Burrowing Owls and Gopher Tortoises.

Eagles, Osprey, Frigate birds and many tropical birds make this area their home. Manatee and dolphins use the extensive waterways to feed and play. Winding our tour through the unique Caxambas area, we stop for a break to learn the intriguing history of the fierce Calusa Indians. Walk among the ancient Indian shell mounds where early pioneers settled this untamed area to hunt, fish and farm. The fresh water spring where the Spanish refilled their water stores before the arduous and dangerous journey home is still visible.

All Equipment included. We have geared bikes for adults and children, and tag-a long free wheel trailering bikes for small children.

Marco Island Kayak Adventures

Do you love to kayak or have you always wanted to give it a try? Marco Island is the perfect destination for this activity as there are no large bays or dangerous waters to traverse. We load you up on our pontoon boat equipped with kayaks in racks and take you for a scenic drive into the mangroves and Ten Thousand Islands.

Here we launch you in the kayaks for a guided tour into the estuaries, creeks and rivers. You could see dolphin, manatee, osprey, egrets, herons and plenty of fish. You can ride single or double up with a partner or child. We go at a slow pace so it’s great for beginners and we can do special beach tours for younger children.
