Wow, what luck!
Dec 2018 • Family
We just stopped because we saw a parking lot and we wanted to get a better look at some amazing dew-topped spiderwebs. But there was a short walk on a paved trail to a tower, which allowed us to observe a vast array of birds and gators across a gorgeous marsh. Saw roseate spoonbills, great blue herons, tri-colored herons, snowy egrets, anhingas sunning, and more, all at once!

Stopped at the Trail
Sep 2018 • Couples
Stopped at the trail and it seemed a bit run down with empty cups and liter scattered about? The Marsh trail looks a tad overgrown.

Beautiful beaches, shells, perfect water

This is where we go to play, and I could not imagine a better place!
There is plenty of room to find a private spot no matter when you go. Shells and treasures are plentiful and the fishing is wonderful.

This little gem is a fantastic place to view wildlife. It is only a short drive from Marco Island with plenty of parking and a very easy walking trail. We always spot good size gators and a numerous birds, including the beautiful roseate spoonbills.

Everglades City Boat Tour
Mar 2017 • Couples
On our way to Marco Island we stopped at Everglade City and did the 10,000 island boat tour. Tour was and hour and a half with 2 naturalists on board. Saw lots of birds, dolphins, manatee's and mangrove trees. Very relaxing and informative ride on a lovely sunny afternoon.

Sunrise in the Everglades
Mar 2017 • Solo
If you like bird watching this is a must. The observation tower off 41, along the marsh trail is amazing. Just a short walk and you feel like you are a world away. Sunrise is beautiful, but bring bug spray. I went back later in the day, and it was still amazing...plus the gators and crocodiles where awake! Bring a camera and binoculars if you can.

The Path Less Traveled!
Jan 2017 • Couples
We took a tour of the Ten Thousand Islands via Jet Ski! It was great to be out on the water and see Marco Island from that vantage point. My favorite parts of the tour were seeing dolphins in the bay, speeding full throttle across open water, and then careening into the narrows between islands where the mangroves almost touch. You get to swerve between these narrow water ways and feel like you are going to touch the trees on both sides. Very cool. We went with WowAdventures.com. Great tour guide! If you have back or neck issues, a jet ski is probably not for you b/c of the pounding over the waves.

Boat ride to 10,000 Islands
Nov 2016 • Couples
Really good for $37.00 each. Supposed to be 90 minutes, went over by 15 minutes due to seeing dolphins. Good narration by captain. Fun outing.

What to see the Everglades? ... Stop off while driving 41 Tamiami Trail
Jan 2016 • Family
On your way to Marco stop off and see the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge observation tower. It has parking for 20+ cars, no toilet facilities, between Miami and Marco Island, South of 41, you will see birds, gators, marshland.

Ten Thousand Islands NWR is located between Marco Island and Everglades City, Florida. The refuge is best accessed by boat. The two prominent boating access points are found in Goodland and Port-of-the-Islands. Take U.S. 41 south out of Naples and drive 12 miles to Hwy 92, turn right and drive 5 miles to Goodland, or continue on U.S. 41 for 5 miles to Port-of-the-Islands. The headquarters for the refuge is located at 12085 State Road 20 South, Immokalee, FL.
