    The Cortez Village tour explores the shores of Historic Cortez. This area of Florida is rich in maritime history. Throughout the years these waterways have been the source for the abundant commercial fishing industry that the community has been built on.
    The people of Cortez came together and purchased the adjacent property and created the FISH Preserve. Come step back in time while we travel through the mangrove tunnels of this preserve and enjoy the sights and sounds of local wildlife. It is possible to see dolphins, sea turtles, manatees, fish and birds while paddling in this area. We will also learn why mangroves and sea grasses are so important to the local fisheries.
