Outdoors & Nature

Surrounded by endless mangroves, estuaries, marshes, shorelines and an abundance of wildlife, Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades is home to a diverse and untouched ecosystem. Here, you can catch a glimpse of a rare bird perched in the treetops, hook a fish from your kayak in the Ten Thousand Islands, or get up close with ghost orchids on a guided swamp walk. Come discover unique outdoor adventures beyond the beach, and see a pristine Florida just as it looked hundreds of years ago.
