Explore an Estuary on this Eco-Cruise!

Have you ever visited a place with the hope that you might come away with a profound understanding of its essence rather than just a snapshot? This 3-hour nature cruise captained by a local biologist will allow you to immerse yourself into some of the most beautiful areas of wild Southwest Florida. Wander through the backwaters of the Rookery Bay Reserve while learning about the local flora and fauna and how they fit into the complex tapestry of this place we call the estuary. Journey back in time and learn how human and natural history intersect while exploring mangrove islands, barrier islands, and unique wildlife that call this area home. Keep an eye out for dolphin, manatee, bald eagle, wading birds, and many more of the area’s inhabitants.
