After spotting several manatees your United States Coast Guard Captain will safely navigate in and out of the 10,000 Islands, the namesake for the 10,000 Islands Wildlife Refuge. Here, there are literally 10,000 mangrove islands, mostly never inhabited by man. However, several larger and higher in elevation islands were settled, including Fakahatchee Island which was home to over 50 families as late as the 1960s. To this day, you are still able to see the pilings known as the Ruins. The ruins are remnants of the old fish house used to pack the catches of all the fishing locals. Evidence of our western inhabitants will only date back to the late 1800s but there is much more history in the 10,000 Islands.
After navigating the shallow bays and backwaters of the inner islands, guests are finally exposed to the Gulf of Mexico and the beautiful outer islands. These islands are filled with undeveloped white sandy beaches that stretch for miles and miles.
About our Boat
Hop aboard our 24-foot fully customized pontoon boat named the Swamp Fox. Rebuilt in 2020 with the touring passengers in mind, the Swamp Fox is unlike any other boat in the Florida Everglades.
Our boat was designed specifically for boat tours. It runs fast and shallow and has been removed of any unwanted clutter. Super comfortable commercial bench seats with ample floor space give our guests plenty of room to move around. Our boat sports a hard-top storage bench that doubles as an elevated viewing platform, perfect for our younger guests who are unable to get a high vantage point. We want to make sure all guests get to experience the beauty of Floridas wildlife while on our Naples boat tour.
Capt. Kyle McKenzie took this unique style of fishing and utilized it on the Swamp Fox to increase our customer’s viewing experiences. Everything about this boat redesign has a sightseeing Boat Tour customer in mind!
