Para-sailing is something I have always wanted to do, but was too afraid to do it. I finally took the challenge. It was so awesome. My wife and I spoke with the employee on the beach right near our suite and he told us to come back around 2 PM. The boat arrived promptly, we boarded the boat, we were... More

We spent a great long-girl's weekend in a beautiful cottage mid-Island. Luckily for us - mid-island water sports was located right near our rental. We ordered up some chairs and umbrellas for use doing our stay. The chairs and umbrellas were waiting for us each morning when we hit the beach. We also used Mid-Island for a wave runner dophin...

Our guide, Chad, took us out to see the dolphins and manatees. He knew all the spots to locate them. Had a good time driving out and back riding the waves at 65. It's an experience worth doing and we will do it again.

We had a super time on the waverunner tour. Chad was a great guide and had everyone feeling confident and comfortable handling the waverunners. We saw numerous dolphins and manatees and enjoyed zipping up and down the coast as well as in and out of the coves in the bay. An experience worth your time and money.

We done the 'magum' parasailing and rented a waverunner whilst on our recent stay at the Sandpiper hotel. The staff were great and always friendly. The prices were higher than I had anticipated so we had to make some compromises (maybe you could advertise the prices on your website?) . If I knew in advance the waverunner zone was so... More

Jet ski tour review. I ALMOST backed out of it. The waves were choppy and I didn't want to hold anyone up. The tour guide, Chad, talked me into going and driving my own. So, I did and it was EASY. I felt like I was a pro in five minutes. We went for miles. The tour guide took us... More

We went on the wave runner dolphin tour and it was great. Chad pointed out several different bird species in their natural habitat. Saw several dolphin and some were within ten feet of our wave runner. Also went to Hickory beach which had some great shelling opportunity! Had planned on para sailing but so glad we did this instead. Will... More
