"We have visited the Boca Grande/Englewood area of Florida several times, yet had not experienced a kayak tour through Seashore Eco Tours until recently. By far the best activity we have ever done! Nicole is very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. She loves what she does and it shows. She takes pictures of your excursion and then posts them for the participants to access. We learned so much, yet had an incredibly relaxing time. So wonderful!!!"
Mary N. Trip Advisor Review
"Amazing Experience!!! Seashore Eco Tours and Nicole were fabulous from the minute we started communicating about the idea of booking a private tour with them on Boca Grande. They accommodated our busy schedule and gave us great advice on maneuvering the kayaks before we got in the water. THE BEST PART: Nicole was an expert at spotting manatees! We were surrounded by a family of friendly manatees! These sea cows came up to our kayaks, rolled over, waved, and absolutely made our trip! Nicole was also extremely knowledgeable on the various plant and animal species in the area. She was able to spot and explain the behaviours of all the animals we witnessed on our eco tour.
We will definitely be booking a private tour with Seashore Eco Tours in the future!!"
