The Eco Endeavors 10,000 Islands Tour is great! It’s the right amount of time: around three hours. The captain, Campbell, is a fantastic guide. He shared a lot of information about the plants and animals of the area in an entertaining way. We were very lucky — we saw many dolphins up close and two manatees during the tour.

We had an absolutely wonderful time fishing with Nick for Peacock Bass; the trip could not have been better. The boat, rods & reels and bait were on top of the line. Nick was patient, informative and moved as needed to keep us on fish. We caught and released over 50 fish in 7 hours. A few large Peacocks made it a memorable experience. We would highly recommend Nick and we hope to get another trip in before return to the Rockies. Patrick & Brian
