Mid Island Water Sports has been providing the best waverunner rentals, parasailing and dolphin tours on Fort Myers Beach for over fifteen 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!

Our tour guide Mike does a fantastic job bringing us to all the places to see the Dolphins and this time saw an amazing group of Manatees. Mike is very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife and we will be back with... More

Our tour guide Chris was phenomenal. Not only was his tour informative and safety conscious, but also fun and full of dolphin sightings. We spent about two hours on the water scoping out wildlife. Chris assured that we were respectful of other tours, the wildlife and the watercraft laws. My friend and I had a blast and highly recommend this... More

March 2/15: Mike, our tour guide, gave a fantastic tour. Unfortunately the dolphins re not too playful but he did find 3 or 4 areas where we saw them. We had a nice long ride on the Gulf before going into the Bay. Then another really fun ride back, swishing back and forth. The weather and the water was perfect..... More

Michael the tour and David the on shore guy could not have been any better for this tour. Friendly, helpful and above all safety conscious! We had a wonderful tour on very clean and safe jet ski's and Michael brought us to the area of dolphins but was very aware of the dolphins safety. Good time on the water.

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

Drive the extra distance for Mid Island, Dave who runs this is great and friendly, we always return, you are closer to the back bay here so you get out there faster, this trip was a good one, manatee's and dolphins, nesting eagle and a few local birds.
