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! « less

Our guide, Mike, was excellent, and Chad had me up to speed on the safety features and operation of the wave runner in... More

We bought a groupon for a 2 hr paddle board rental that included 2chairs. & umbrella for all day on Ft Myers Beach for $25. A great bargain when the cost for chairs & umbrella is $13 !! Lots of fun & not a problem in using the groupon!! Perfect

Mid Island Water Sports were very friendly and helpful with information. Jake was a great guide for the wave runner tour. Our group was afraid that you would be at idle speed most of the trip, but we were able to have fun, get up some speed, and still stop to see the wildlife and scenery. After the tour we... More

We had an amazing wave runner/dolphin tour during our first week stay that we went back again with our teenagers during our 4th week in Florida. We saw lots of marine life, had a great experience on the wave runner and will never forget our trip with fantastic guide Mike. We shopped around and believe we had great value for... More

We were delayed by fog the morning of our tour. What impressed me the most was that the co. didn't try to rush us out just to try to get it over with. They knew our kids wanted to see dolphins, so they withstood the 1.5 hr. delay, but it was well worth the wait. The guides were helpful and... More

The last thing you want on vacation is a hassle when you just want to have some fun. No hassles here. Thorough, quick, friendly and the kids had a great time parasailing. Recommend highly because of the friendly, knowledgeable staff. Not sure of the pricing. We dropped a couple of hundred for parasailing for two which included a photo disc... More

Mid Island was running a special, so my girlfriend and I rented a Wave Runner from behind the Holiday Inn. We were out on the water for an hour and had a blast! The workers were friendly and helpful. The wave runner was easy to maneuver and fast! Would do it again, for sure.

Glad you enjoyed the hour rental! Because we have a large riding area without much boating traffic- you can really zip around out there. Come see us again soon! More

A few blocks down from our hotel on ft myers beach we watched these tours go in and out. Not cheap but I'd say we got our money's worth and more. Our guide Mike was great and assessed the ability of our drivers quickly. We got up close to a few dolphins, took in some beautiful scenery and got to... More

Dolphin tour was great this time, saw lots of Dolphins, guide (mike) was good and did not rush anyone, we always go to Mid Island, Dave is very friendly. We have been before and have seen Manatee's and stingrays even, you get a real sense of the nature of Florida when your out there on that jet ski.
