Marco Island Low-Cost Honeymoon Activities

Marco Island Florida is a beautiful place to have your honeymoon all year round. You can even have your wedding there if you like. If you don’t already know, Marco Island, Florida is located near the Florida everglades on the Gulf of Mexico. It is the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. It is only 24 square miles, but is full of life. It is surrounded by uninhabited islands, playful dolphins and other wildlife. The sunsets are beautiful and even the most amatuer photographer can get a halfway decent shot. I know, because I went there on my honeymoon. Here is mine:

If you decide to go, you may want to know which activities are reasonable and affordable in price? These are the things I have found that couples can do for less than $60 per person:

  • Dolphin and Eco- Tours- You can go to for a very unique dolphin tour. You can participate in a dolphin project wherein you get to name the dolphin you successfully photograph if the dolphin has not been documented. Also the ,Calusa Spirit, which sails off in front of the Hilton and the Marriott offers eco-tours wherein you may get a glimpse of dolphins and other wildlife. I did go on the Calusa Spirit eco-tour and saw a glimpse of a pod of dolphins:

  • Airboat Tours- The everglades is full of life including Manatees, alligators, pelicans and many other types of animals. There is an airboat tour that will take you deep inside the mangrove ‘forests’ where you can get a closer look. But this is a wild ride, so be careful. You should hold on for dear life in my honest opinion. One such is place is Speedy Johnson’s Airboat Tours
  • Briggs Nature Center Conservancy- There are many nature trails and tours there. Great for you nature lovers out there. Less than $10 per person
