In many respects, Florida is all about the beaches, and Marco Island is no exception to that age-old rule. Blessed with picturesque stretches of glistening white beaches and endless gulf vistas, Marco Island is a beachgoers paradise; South Marco Island Beach on South Collier Boulevard is one of the area’s most convenient public beaches. The beach is popular for its variety of shells and nearby lodging, dining, and recreation options, and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins frolicking in the surf just offshore
At nearly 100-feet long, the Marco Island Princess has been a recognizable feature on the waters around the island for years. For those who long to get a view of the Florida coast from the water, there’s no better way to do it than aboard the Princess. The Princess sails from the Rose Marina in Marco Island, and each tour features narration by the captain that includes historical and natural insights you won’t likely find elsewhere.
