 These Islamorada Attractions
Make Eco Adventures Fun

The following Islamorada attractions focus on eco adventure tours, and are another reason why tourists are attracted to this region for their Florida Keys vacation.

Nestled between Key Largo and Marathon, and cushioned by Florida Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, eco tourists quickly discover there are numerous holiday tours that maintain eco-friendly themes.

Kayak tours and boat tours out into the Florida Keys backcountry and Everglades National Park give vacationers an opportunity to spend a few hours or a full day, learning about the Florida wildlife and plants they'll encounter on their boat or kayak trip.

Florida fish often seen are sting rays, spiny lobster, different species of shark, tarpon, permit, barracuda, bonefish, even dolphin, and manatee.

On shore you'll likely spot deer, raccoon, perhaps even catch a rare glimpse of a Florida panther. In the air and trees you'll discover numerous species of Florida birds, including anhinga, pelicans, roseate spoonbills, terns, osprey, bald eagle, herons, ibis, egret, perhaps even an endangered wood stork or two.

Another of the Islamorada attractions that's also a fun eco adventure are stand up paddle board trips. These eco paddle board tours are suitable for all ages and let you have fun while experiencing the varied marine life and wildlife as you glide over the Islamorada flats.

The paddle board eco tours are also educational in two ways. You learn about the wildlife encountered on your paddle board trip while honing your paddle boarding skills with helpful tips and pointers from your eco tour guides.

Guided Florida Keys snorkeling tours are the perfect way to learn about the region's coral reefs, while viewing the many colorful tropical fish that teem in and around the reefs.

Guided Ranger tours are also available on weekends at beautiful Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park, located offshore 1 mile west of Mile Marker 78.5.
