The first part of this two part experience is a slow, intimate boating tour amongst the remote islands of the 10,000 Islands.  While you search for dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, you may encounter ospreys, bald eagles, ibis, roseate spoonbill, egrets, herons and any number of shorebird species.  All the while, your formally trained Florida Master Naturalist guide will talk to you about the area's ecosystems, it's long history and rich culture.

The second part is an exploration of a remote barrier island beach...an island that you only can reach by boat...an island that few get to experience.  Learn about beach dynamics; stroll through the tidal flats and wade the tidal pools.  Imagine shelling on islands that are NOT picked over daily by hundreds of people.  With your naturalist guide, learn not only about individual shell animals, but learn how to shell.  This is an excellent hands-on experience for the young and old alike. Your naturalist guide will facilitate parents and grandparents wanting to be the educators.

This is not a typical pre-programmed tour.  Every day and every tour can be different, so be sure to discuss the possibilities with your guide.  Don't forget your cameras!
