Small group, terrific scenery, thrilling ride through narrow mangrove channels and the boat was dry. ie. We didn't get wet although you could so try not to wear cotton. Guide, Dylan Queck was great and easy to hear during breaks. Five star experience.

Photo of Denise L.

Would give 0 stars if we could. Terrible experience today at their Collier Seminole Park location. Last year it was a 5 star experience at their previous location. Today was the biggest waste of money taking our 2 grandkids on this non adventure. Due to bad weather an AM trip was cancelled & pushed to after our 1 pm departure. By the time we reached open water the guide said we ran out of time and had to go back because the other group was now waiting There was no opportunity to open up & go fast. On the way back a boat hit a mangrove and there was chaos while we were being devoured by mosquitos as the guide attempted to realign the 5 boats in clogged waterway. This was a new location for GoCats & a complete bust compared to an enjoyable trip a year ago in open waters. DO NOT use this company. Friends went with Craig Cats at the same time today and raved about the experience

Great experience! Have a 17 & 13 year old and both enjoyed. Barron was a great guide. A must do while in Marco Island!

Awesome trip! Christina was an amazing guide. Seeing the domes was amazing. Also the weather was perfect.

Highly recommend, so much fun. Great way to see the mangroves, dolphins, dome house, and islands. We chose the 2.5 hour tour and it went be so fast. Our guide Christina was fantastic. We were so close to the dolphins you could reach out and touch them. Great experience.

Photo of Jackie H.

I want to recommend this experience because the actual boating and tour guide were awesome but everything else was awful. Once you pay for your tour, if you're under 32, you have to take a $10 boating test which had so many tech glitches, we paid multiple times for it. THEN we were never even asked to verify that it was completed. We were told to show up 20 minutes early for the tour but because of construction were told to go to a different location - no issues but it's literally a parking lot in a neighborhood so we called to verify if we were in the correct spot. The woman who answered the phone was so condescending and rude but said someone would be there in a few minutes to meet us. 25 minutes later, someone comes and we get started. No communication. No apology. We didn't even get a recognition that our tour was supposed to start and we arrived early to stand in a random parking lot for 25 minutes. We finish our tour and told to walk to edge of the parking lot to meet the bus driver to take us back to the car. 15 minutes later, no bus but poor Dylan comes and drives us to the car since whoever was supposed to wasn't there. Again - our tour guide was great. He did a great job giving the tour and making sure we were trained, safe and saw the sights but wow everything else makes it not worth it especially considering how expensive it was. 2 stars overall because the tour guide gets 5 but the entire process gets 0. So no, I don't recommend.

Photo of Debra M.

So. much. fun. Our guide, Captain Mary was knowledgeable and quick to point out various types of marine life giving us the opportunity to take some time and watch in wonder as wild nature swam right by us. She gave us plenty of time to get comfortable manuvering our cats as well as giving us the opportunity to go speedy fast through the gulf waters,THAT was super fun! My hubby and I are no spring chickens and my hubs has some mobility issues. Captain Mary was patient and helpful as we got ourselves situated on the cat. This was a highlight on our 30th wedding anniversary trip.So happy we went we would recommend this trip with this company to all. Oh, and the shells on the island we spent time on...so cool!

Photo of Paul G.

Amazing day on the water with Rich from Go Cats! I'd highly recommend these guys and ask for him. So fun!

This is a Must Do if you're visiting Marco Island. We had a ton of fun. The boats are easy to operate. We saw Dolphins up close. Lisa, our guide was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and funny. She made our tour a great experience.

Photo of Kim N.

Our family of six took the 2.5 hour tour with Dylan who was an awesome guide.He was very knowledgeable and laid back which allowed for a fun tour. We had some weather issues, which Dylan navigated perfectly by satellite, and was able to adjust the original route and kept us out on the water which provided us a great experience. We will definitely take another tour with Go Cats on the Water when we return to Marco.

Ages 8+ (18+ to Drive) • Top Ranked Marco Island Tour since 2011!

Quick Details

  • User Ages: 8+ (18+ to Drive)
  • Hour Glass Duration: 1.5 or 2.5 hour

Go on a CraigCat Adventure in Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands

  • 2.5 Hour Tour: Most Popular Choice. About midway through the trip, the tour stops at a secluded barrier island for shelling and swimming. The entire trip will cover up to 30 miles of the most beautiful waterways in Southwest Florida.
  • 1.5 Hour Tour: THIS TOUR DOES NOT STOP AT AN ISLAND LIKE OUR 2 1/2 HOUR TOUR! The entire tour will cover roughly 15-20 miles of our favorite waterways around the backwaters of Marco Island and the 10,000 Islands.

This is an interactive adventure where you will experience wildlife, sea life, adventure and beauty. This is not your everyday guided tour at all because you get to DRIVE YOUR OWN BOAT! Your guide is driving his boat in front of you to guide you safely around the Ten Thousand Islands and pointing out the sights! The backwaters of Marco Island have many dolphin, manatees, shore birds and other sea life that can be seen along the way.

The Craig-Cat is an exceptionally unique watercraft! This two-seat catamaran with 30 Horsepower outboard engine driven speed boat allows our guests to go up to speeds nearing 30 mph. The boat allows for a much more intimate ride than similar watercraft such as wave runners or jet skis for our guests. Sit back and relax with your guests on a CraigCat tour from Marco Island with comfortable seats placed side-by-side to make conversation easy.

The CraigCat is known for being very stable and very safe as well as easy to operate. After a short 10 minute instructional speech, you will have all the know how needed to operate the vessel.

The CraigCat offers a space for a complimentary cooler provided by us filled with bottled water and ice already. The CraigCat also has a small dry box built on the boat to place your belongings safe from any splashes!
