My wife and I were a little leery about spending $300 for a jet ski tour but let me tell you it was worth every penny. Captain Ron was our guide for the day and he really showed us a great time. I didn't realize how beautiful this area was until this trip. The trip goes into the 10,000 islands... More

What an amazing tour. We had a great tour guide who brought us to many dolphins who come right up to your jet ski! Avi did a superb job keeping us all entertained and he was very informative when we took breaks. Beautiful scenery, dolphins, manatees, water, sun and speed... What more can you ask for? This is a must... More

Do this tour. Our second year and second time taking this tour. Small groups, well run, perfect both times. A wildlife tour that actually produced wildlife. The online pictures are just what you get. Dolphins, jumping out of the water 3 feet away. This time we saw Manatee, Spoonbills, Egrets, Cranes, and 3 pods of dolphins. Then shelling on a... More

Like most of the reviewers, we were really pleased with our time spent with Capt. Ron. We had a group of 9 aged 5 to 45 and we all had a great time. He was friendly, fun, informative, and safety minded. I was along for the ride so didn't really know all the details before I arrived, 3 hours is... More

This was one of the main reasons in choosing Marco island for part of our holiday and we were not disappointed. We had never been on a jet ski before, but the initial training was great and gave us confidence. Safety is paramount to capt. Ron and Avi so if you are unsure of jet ski's....don't worry, just do it!... More

My boyfriend and I took a vacation to Marco Island in June 2014. We were trying to find some things to do during our stay when we came across Capt. Ron's Everglades Tour. At first, we were a little skeptical paying $312 for a jet ski tour but to our surprise it was so worth it. Avi was our tour... More

I am a Floridian and avid outdoorsman on the water. I have seen most everything but saw new things today. The operation is well organized and... More

Captain Ron told me himself that most people wanted the tour to last longer. For me, 3 hours was plenty, perhaps a bit too long. Actually ½ hours of the tour was spent on an island collecting shells. That part was fun since I gathered a huge bag of large, varied, and perfect shells for my collection. The other time... More

My husband and I took our 8 and 9 yr old girls so we had two wave runners. Our guide was very informative and set expectations. We saw dolphins and a manatee which was fun. We stopped on a mangrove island for a water break and to reapply sunscreen. We also stopped on an island that was covered in millions... More
