Fun Florida Wildlife Facts and Marco Island Tours


Fun Florida Wildlife Facts and Marco Island Tours

When you go on vacation, the goal is to experience things you can’t find back home. When you come to Florida, you’ll see new and unusual things at every turn. From palm trees to sand dollars to manatees, southwest Florida has it all. Last month, we told you all about the different types of Marco Island tours. Now, we’re diving into what you’ll see on each. Whether you’re interested in dolphin watching, Florida manatee tours, or other Florida wildlife, these Marco Island eco tours near our beach vacation rentals will show you something unforgettable. Here are the details on three of Florida’s most sought-out animals and how to see them yourself.


Marco Island Tours for Dolphin Watching Florida

You’ve probably heard that dolphins are intelligent animals, but did you know that they can swim up to 18 miles per hour, grow up to 32 feet long, and are carnivores? That’s the strength and beauty you’ll see when you attend Marco Island eco tours with The Dolphin Explorer. It’s a 47-foot catamaran, so you won’t have to paddle, but it’s quiet enough that the Florida wildlife won’t hide.


Florida Manatee Tours near Marco Island

Manatees, also known as sea cows, are friendly, lumbering marine animals. Unlike dolphins, these big guys are herbivores. Many old records of mermaid sightings were, oddly, actually about manatees. To see your own mermaid, go for the fabulous Marco Island tours with Manatee Eco-Tours. Their low-speed, no-wake Marco Island tours are safe for manatees, who are too slow to move out of the way of faster boats.


Exciting Alligator Tours Florida

While there aren’t as many alligators on Marco Island as in other parts of Florida, you can still see some when you visit. Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve are close to My Marco Horizon Rentals. To see alligators in an enclosure, visit Everglades Wonder Gardens. To see them in the wild, contact Airboats and Alligators for one of the best alligator tours Florida has to offer. An airboat ride is a classic among Marco Island tours, and it’s a big part of Florida culture. Oh, and did you know alligators hibernate like bears?
