Since 2001, Florida Saltwater Adventures has been offering the best Marco Island boat tours into the beautiful habitats of southwest Florida. We're quite different from the typical sightseeing tour companies. Here are a few reasons why people choose us again and again.
More people choose us because you never feel like you're on a tour. You're treated like an old friend. There are no banners, signs, phone numbers that reveal you are on a tour.
All of our tours have a private option which is great for keeping things quiet and better wildlife viewing. There are never any crowds to contend with.
When we encounter that special animal, you have a front row ticket. You can spend as much time as you want observing your favorite animal without looking over 50 shoulders!

Owner-Operated - Captain Alex does all the guiding and owns the company. There are no employees just punching a time clock!
Exploring thousands of miles every year, your guide Captain Alex Saputo is a dedicated naturalist who never tires of his craft. With his easy-going personality and calm demeanor you'll
feel at ease whether you're deep in the backcountry or cruising the coast with your kids. First introduced to the natural world by his parents who were avid outdoor enthusiasts. In his childhood days if you wanted to know where Alex was hiding, all you needed were a pair of waders, a compass and knowledge of the swamp around his house.
"I'm very fortunate to have grown up in an area that
had an abundance of green space. I'm not surprised
I chose guiding as a profession---guiding is my passion!" - Alex Saputo
A USCG Master Captain for 20 years, Alex will amaze you with his "eagle eyes" for spotting wildlife. His detailed knowledge about the area, its ecosystems, plants, animals, weather and history is top notch.
Lastly, when he's not on the trail of adventure, you'll likely find Alex
training for his next sporting event. An avid cyclist, runner and multisport athlete for over 30 years, he strongly believes in balancing work with a healthy lifestyle.
