Mid Island Water Sports has been providing the best waverunner rentals, parasailing and dolphin tours on Fort Myers Beach for over 23 YEARS. Enjoy our hour and a half long excursion with a guide through the back bay while you drive your own waverunner and experience wildlife such as dolphin, manatees, rays, fish and birds from up close. We also offer freestyle riding with the largest riding area on the beach and the least boat traffic. Parasailing is a must with 1 to 4 flyers at a time! We also offer a full beach service with cabanas, chair and umbrella rentals and even Stand Up Paddleboards!

Joey was the perfect guide for us- all four of us first time wave runners and all over sixty- five years old. Not only did he find dolphins for us to enjoy, he made sure we had a great time! He even threw in some local history. Thanks, Joey, for a fun afternoon on the water!!

Had the best time ever! First time on wave runners and our guide Joey was awesome. We saw soo many dolphins we are pretty sure he knows them personally. Came up right next to us,under us, and all around us. Highly recommend this adventure for everyone. Great service, great fun, and knowledgeable guide who made a great experience even better.

I have been visiting Florida almost every year for the last 16 years. I've always been to afraid to go in the ocean. I am a Lake Michigan kind of girl. My girlfriends wanted to go out on the dolphin tour, I wanted to to stay on the beach. Captain Joey assured me that the water was safe and that... More

It sounds like you had quite the trip! It is VERY rare for anyone to fall off of the waverunner - but if something like that were to happen our guys will take great care of you! More

Group of 10 went on a jet ski dolphin tour with Mike. We saw 3 dolphins and cruised in the gulf and Estero Bay. This was a great adventure for our kids ranging from 7-12. It would have been a 5 star except we had a mechanical issue with one of the skis. Regardless the tour was excellent.

We wanted to book renting a jet ski for our 16 and 19 year-olds. The hotel beach guy talked us into the jet ski tour instead (he said it costs just a little more, but gives you more time and is so much more fun when you can ride all around the beach). We were skeptical, a morning tour with... More
