Double R’s Fishing and Tours Company offers landlubbers a seafaring excursion through the heart of the Everglades and the 10,000 Islands estuaries during a 150-minute Manatee Eco-Tour. Hoist anchor from the Port of the Islands Marina aboard a 32-foot pontoon boat piloted by a locally grown captain. Sponge-like brains soak up knowledge about native wildlife and history while eyes and ears peel themselves, hoping for glimpses of migrating manatees. Other animal inhabitants of the largest mangrove jungle in the United States include alligators, dolphins, and several species of endangered tropical birds, from bald eagles to the more follicly flowing osprey.
TripAdvisors give Double R’s Fishing & Tours Company an average of 3.5 owl eyes:
- We had an excellent tour seeing manatees, gators, dolphins and numerous birds. Our captain and guide ensured that we had ample opportunity to see what we had hoped to see and knew where we were most likely to see the species that most interested us. Best of all, they were particularly sensitive to avoid any harassment of the federally endangered manatees. – oly-eco-traveler
