Captain Mike was a phenomenal tour guide!

We have been coming down to Marco for 35+ years and this was by far the best tour we have had! We saw dolphins, manatees, the Dome House, pelicans, birds, and went to Kice Island for shelling! His knowledge of the island and water life was incredible. He customizes any tour to whatever you want to see or do. I highly recommend Captain Mike anytime you want an enjoyable and fun tour of the island! He’s THE BEST!

We had an exceptional 3 hour tour that was simply amazing and completely exceeded our expectations.

Capt Mike was very accommodating and professional and we highly recommend him to Captain your tours.

Our family was so impressed with the fountain of knowledge that Captain Mike was able to share about Marco, the surrounding islands and marine life.

We were able to watch manatees, while moments later we were chased by dolphins just after circling the dome houses! Next we were off to a little island with some of the most beautiful unique shells we’ve ever seen... not to mention the cute little fiddler crabs! Living on Marco or visiting Marco don’t miss your chance to take a boat tour with Captain Mike! Can’t wait for our next trip!

Captain Mike and his guided tour was outstanding!

His knowledge of the area and pleasant demeanor along with the fact that he managed to get dolphins surfing in the wake of his boat within minutes of leaving the dock in very choppy waters was made for a great experience. A definite highlight to our vacation!

— Jamie Matheson S

We’d do this tour again in a heartbeat!! Thanks Captain Mike Green!

We stopped to watch lots of dolphins throughout our tour. It was relaxing, peaceful and oh so beautiful! We ended the morning shelling on a beach full of seashells and came home with two bags filled with glorious shells, some of which we had not even seen on Sanibel Island!!

Can’t say enough great things! We’ll definitely be calling Green Water Boat Tours again!

Captain Mike was personable, knowledgeable, and patient with our young children. We wanted to see dolphins and he knew exactly where to find them and was even able to get them jumping behind the boat. The adults loved all the history of the islands and he made sure the kids enjoyed the whole experience.

Our experience with Captain Mike and Green Water Boat Tours could not possibly have been more positive. As you can tell, I can't recommend enough.

We first went looking for dolphins. This was a lifetime memory. We saw some from a distance and as he moved the boat around, they got closer. It was out of this world! My kids were screaming with excitement! Then, he took us to see the domehouses, shared a lot of history, even had a booklet he made with old photos. From there, he took us to his favorite shelling island on the Thousand Islands. No one else was there. We had the island to ourselves. Even on a cool windy day, it was an amazing adventure we will never forget!

Don’t even know how to put in words how great a morning we had with Captain Mike.

He hand picked the best shells for us to take back home with us, he talked to us about the island and the history. We were comfortable and felt at home on Captain Mike’s boat. We saw all the wildlife you could and it was as gorgeous as ever! Thank you Captain Mike, we will be back and my friends will all too!!!!

Don't even know where to start...Best boat tour ever.

Shelling, seeing manatee's and dolphins, cruising the island with Mike telling us all about it. If you want a really great boat tour experience, this is the guy to call!!!!!

— Deb C

We laughed so much. We spotted dolphins, various wild birds and visited the Dome Houses. Can't recommend highly enough.

A brilliant day with Captain Mike. All pre arranged plans fulfilled, boat was in great condition, welcome was warm and friendly and we set sail right on time. Mikes commentary was fantastic with brilliant engagement with our teenage kids.

We had an amazing time with Captain Mike and Green Water Boat Tours!

Captain Mike took us to the Cape Romano Dome House and patiently waited for us to snap all the pictures we wanted. He circled around the house looking for the best light and views all while telling us the history of the long abandoned home. Captain Mike then took us in search of dolphins. He could spot them a mile away. We saw so many and got up close and personal with a few. I'm not sure who was more excited the kids or adults! After spotting several dolphins and a manatee Captain Mike took us shelling on Kice Island. He was so accommodating, asking the kids what they were hoping to find when we went shelling. The kids said sand dollars and he knew exactly where to go. We found so many beautiful shells AND sand dollars. The kids were so excited every time they found one! I would definitely recommend Captain Mike and Green Water Boat Tours to anyone looking to experience the waters of Marco Island!

— Kathy H

Captain Mike is awesome! He made sure that we saw everything we wanted to see and experienced everything there is to experience.

He explained the history of all the attractions and searched and searched until we were fortunate enough to see not only a bunch of dolphins, but the most beautiful manatee it has ever been my pleasure to see. He took us to a great shelling spot and made sure that I had all the most beautiful shells that could possibly be found. All in all, the trip was so much more than I could have hoped for. Please make sure that this is one trip you don't miss.
