Nature Cruises in Naples, Bonita Springs, Marco Island
and Ft. Myers Beach Florida
Southwest Florida's favorite excursion company for wildlife eco tours and cruises from Naples, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, and Marco Island.
We offer daily nature tours, eco tours and river cruises in throughout Southwest Florida. Join Florida Excursions formally Naples Marina and Excursions for an exciting nature cruise aboard one of our many vessels. From small private parties to large events with many guests, we have the ability to accommodate various needs. We offer daily public and private tours with the ability for handicap accessible dock and boat tours.
Most of our tours are eco based which will begin along one of several estuaries. Our most famous tour has been on "one of the cradles of the ocean," like the Cocohatchee River, "one of ten, critically important estuaries in Southwest Florida." As we glide along the river, keep a watchful eye for some of the many species that inhabit the area, including water fowl, reptiles, and more. Around the bends, we may encounter an increasingly rare animal, the endangered manatee.

Current statistics suggest that only some 2,400 - 3,200 remain in the southeastern US. Most of these are concentrated in Florida year round. As we approach the Gulf of Mexico, osprey and eagles may soar overhead, in search of fish, while wading birds can be observed seeking crustaceans and other delicacies. On most occasions we will see dolphins hunting, bow riding, or playfully interacting.
Our knowledgeable Guides will give you a historical account of the Native Indians who inhabited the area and about the battles fought with pirates, Ponce de Leon & his crew. On our last tour of the day, experience an extraordinary color show and try to catch a "green flash" as the sun sets in the Gulf of Mexico.
With the many types of excursions we offer, from private or group narrated nature tours, to dolphin and manatee excursions and paddling trips, there is sure to be something to please everyone. You will be thrilled that you joined us and amazed with the vast wildlife experiences along the Cocohatchee River.
