robbies also has back country tours. trips to Lignumvitae State Park. The serenity and isolation of remote islands have always captured man's imagination. Lignumvitae Key is no exception; to step ashore here is to take a step into the past. The Matheson House, built in 1919, has changed little over the years. The virgin tropical forest that thrives here is typical of the kind of scenery that was once enjoyed on most of Florida's upper Keys. As the Keys were developed to accomodate an increasing number of people, most of the unique vegetation was scraped away, making the tropical forest of Lignumvitae Key a very rare and special place. Here, you walk in the shade of trees with strange names like mastic, strangler fig, poisonwood, pigeon plum and gumbo limbo.
Robbie's Eco-Tours are a perfect way to experience the raw beauty and wonder of the Florida Bay. two-hour trips take you on an excursion through passages among the sea grass beds that rim the many protected shallow bays. they take you among the hundreds of small, uninhabited mangrove and hardwood hammock islands, which host an amazing variety of wildlife and create the island network of the Florida Bay.
Like nature, Eco Tours are not scripted. Rather, we will follow your interests, stopping along the way to describe any natural occurrence that presents itself, often at such close distance that binoculars are just in the way. guides have a very well-developed understanding of what makes this part of Earth work, and enjoy sharing their knowledge to educate and inform you.
