Everglades National Park's Ten Thousand Islands boat tours depart four times daily from the Gulf Coast Visitor Center in beautiful Everglades City, Florida. This 90-minute excursion ventures across Chokoloskee Bay into Indian Key Pass and through the mangrove islands of Everglades National Park. A naturalist will highlight the rich history and unique wildlife of the area. Upon arrival to the Gulf of Mexico, guests may enjoy views of Indian Key, the Stop Keys, Picnic Key, and Marco Island. Every trip is unique, and while wildlife varies day to day, we are always on the lookout for manatees, osprey, sea turtles, shore birds, and playful dolphins.

You can also choose a Mangrove Wilderness boat tour, or rent your own kayak to explore the bays and mangroves.
