History Mystery boat tour
Explore Rookery Bay Reserve’s human and natural history during this 3-hour small boat trip through the area and learn the mystery of how, where and why the people, plants and animals have been able to survive. Discover how the Calusa Indians responded to the arrival of Ponce de Leon and his fellow Spaniards. Find out where birds such as night heron go during the day.

From early Native Americans to mullet millionaires, and from mud crabs to manatees, this tour is about exploring the mystery of history. Participants must have the physical ability to step on and off of the boat at a dock. Cost is $75 for non-members, $70 for Friends of Rookery Bay members and includes admission to the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center. Register at rookerybay.org.
