Fun and informative excursion

If you are physically up for jet skiing definitely do this. Lots of fun and best way to see mangroves and dolphins. If you need to make a choice do this instead of air boats.

Our guide was amazing. He knew exactly where to find playful dolphins. He had them jumping and playing all around us. The jet skis were very comfortable and we never went ultra fast. On our way back we found a large herd of manatee migrating back for the summer. The pictures he took are incredible. Well worth the money and... More

I saw this online prior to going to Marco Island and booked for my husband and I. We shared a machine and the driving. Captain Ron was efficient from booking, to giving instructions regarding the machine and safety, to showing us dolphins, manitees, stopping to go shelling, and sharing information about the island. A 5 star experience without a doubt.... More

This was our third year in a row going on Captain Ron's wave runner tours, and I guarantee we will do it again next year. It truly is the highlight of our trip. Our guide Avi is so knowledgeable regarding the Dolphins and other sea life. Last year he was able to get a dolphin to play in the wake... More

Capt Ron was awesome taking great care to make sure we felt comfortable running the waverunners. It was really cool seeing the dolphins. Manatees weren't really out that day, but saw a few from afar. It was great that Capt Ron took photos during the excursion so you don't have to worry about dropping your camera in the water! He... More

Very fun zipping thru 10,000 island area. Saw many Dolphins. No manatees. More economical to run three per jet ski but less comfortable.

The best excursion I've ever been on ... Captain Ron taught us safety and kept an eye out for us while leading us through the breathtaking Blueish green backwaters of the Mangroves at exhilarating speeds. We were joined by playful Dolphins and even stopped to hang with the peaceful Manatee. If you've never taking a Jet Ski before this will... More

What a blast! Family of 4--two young teens--2 wave runners. We loved it. We saw lots of dolphins, watched osprey hunting fish, found shells and sand dollars on an island beach and did lots of terrific driving in and around the Ten Thousand Islands. Got the jet skis up to 50 mph a few times---what a thrill! Gorgeous day, calm... More

This was our first time to Marco Island and we wanted to do something different. We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided on this trip- we were not disappointed! Avi was our guide and he was wonderful. We saw LOTS of playful dolphins. We stopped many times to watch them, as well as many birds. We had... More
