Marco Island Boat Assisted Kayak Tour: Everglades Area Tours opens the remote areas of the 10,000 Islands to the average person on our signature tour. The Boat Assisted Kayak ECO Tour combines the best of a boat tour, a kayak tour and a walking tour. Using a dedicated kayak transport boat you are comfortably and safely transported to some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the 10,000 Islands.
Once you reach one of the many destinations, the transport boat will "slow" the tour down and turn it into a "hands-on" eco-experience. Stable, comfortable kayaks are used to get you close to the flora and fauna. You will continue your interpretive experience with a walking tour on pristine barrier island beach. There is a lot to see and a lot to experience on these barrier islands; the wrack lines, shallow tidal zones, dunes, uniquely adapted plants, mangrove swamps, many different invertebrate species, lots of shells and much more.
