Join us for a exciting and educational adventure through the coastal waters of the Ten Thousand Islands. See and photograph wild bottlenose dolphin, as they fish, play and often perform magnificent jumps in their natural habitat. Go in search of the Florida manatee while they forage for food along the shallow grassy bottom. As an option, combine your eco-adventure with a shelling or kayak excursion for a day of fun and memories in this magnificent ecosystem.
