The premier sailing adventure in the Naples and Marco Island area. We go softly – just the gurgle of water at our stern and a gentle breeze across the deck as our 34 foot sailing catamaran, TropicBird slips through the Gulf of Mexico in Florida’s pristine 10,000 Islands – seeing, hearing and experiencing nature as intended, and in complete comfort on your private luxury, master naturalist led tour. 

Our incredible shoal draft – we can operate in as little as 18”, means we can explore areas inaccessible to larger and indeed many much smaller craft. We only do one tour a day which means we have time to linger, and we do not sell individual places so it’s your private charter. We can therefore tailor our itinerary and activities to your specific interests and party’s composition.

Your full-day private charter includes lunch, snacks and all refreshments. Tropicbird is perfect for families, groups of friends or that very special occasion for a couple. At TropicBird Ecotours we are dedicated to providing our guests with the highest level of amenities, service and interpretive content. 

We strive to exceed your expectations and enhancing our guests appreciation of South West Florida’s biodiversity and natural heritage and, whilst and complying with best ecotourism practice

We are the only ecotour business offering private naturalist-led ecotours of the ten Thousand Islands under sail.
