This excursion, led by local archaeologist Theresa Schober, includes a detailed tour of Mound Key and a cruise through the Estero Bay.

A 5 Star Review from B. Hollasch:
“This tour was outstanding from beginning to end. Banana Bay Tour Co. provided great service. Theresa Schober excelled in her knowledge of the Calusa Indians and took extra care with providing water, light lunch, sunscreen & bug stray; also chairs for those who might need rest on the walk. I would encourage anyone interested in local history to find this tour. Plans for Mound Key will enhance the visitor experience but you will always have to reach it by boat, kayak or canoe.”

Curly Clovis calls it a “First Class Event”:
“My wife and I enjoyed the whole experience, boat ride out and back, wildlife along the way and on Mound Key, the archeological information presented in a manner that the lay public can understand, and interacting with Teresa and the boat captain and his able assistant, to the light lunch on the trip back to the West Bay Dock. We greatly appreciated that Teresa provided sun screen, bug repellant, and chairs for those who needed to rest or wait while the group tackled the steep 30 foot climb. Our trip was professional, informative, and delightfully relaxed. Would recommend this experience wholeheartedly.”
