The plant life and wildlife of Florida’s are diverse making Florida the 3rd most ecologically diverse state after Hawaii and California.
Dolphins are very intelligent, friendly marine mammals and our guests have the unique opportunity to see them up close and personal, jumping, playing and interacting with each other in their natural environment. Our boats cruise the water creating the perfect wave for the dolphins to jump through, in fact they frequently swim right up to and along side the boat.
Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades are located on a highly traveled flight path for migrating birds that pass through and stop to rest. During the Winter months, when migration is in full swing, is the best time to see the greatest diversity of bird species. Birds you can expect to see include:

- roseate spoonbills
- white ibises
- great blue herons
- green herons
- snowy egrets,
- red-shouldered hawks
- bald eagles
