DOLPHIN EXPLORER Help study wild dolphins as part of the 10,000 Islands Dolphin Project aboard the Dolphin Explorer, departing for two cruises per day from Rose Marina on Marco Island.

THE GOLISANO CHILDREN'S MUSEUM OF NAPLES (C'MON) It's an exciting, brain-building powerhouse where children and families learn through play.
