We took a Calusa Spirit dolphin cruise from the Marriott Resort beach. Boarded the boat from the beach. This tour included close-up views of the islands with mangroves, snowy egrets, herons, pelicans, along with a stop at a shelling island, and a dolphin tour. The captain (Joe) and first mate (Morgan) provided history of the the area and commentary during... More

Like everyone has said, Brian is awesome! I'd never driven a wave runner, he taught me the one hand trick and we were on our way on an exciting tour! Highly recommended!

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to Joe and Morgan with Marco Island WaterSports! We had another great shelling adventure and loved hearing about the histor of Marco Island, seeing the great wildlife (large birds, dolphins, etc), and getting to go shelling on a beautiful little island. I was sad to learn of the erosion that... More

Excellent experience! Brandon May was our guide twice and both time he was exceptional! We felt comfortable with him guiding us through the 10,000 islands and he helped us see unbelievable wildlife. We will definitely come back and bring friends and family. We were not disappointed!!

this was my second time taking this boat tour. This time I brought along my daughter, mom and sister. We had a great time seeing the Dolphins. Many more spotted than last time. The tour guide we had last time was much better. I felt a bit short changed this time. The guide last time was very knowledgeable and we... More

On our recent trip over the Xmas period 2015 we were fortunate to experience two Waverunner tours. The first was with an independent company (Full Throttle - reviewed separately) and the second was with Marco Island Water Sports (MIWS) - linked to the Marriott and their 'exclusive' provider. As it transpires it would have been better to have done Full... More

Joe & Sonia gave us a magnificent ride through the "Ten Thousand Islands" where we learned a great deal about the local wildlife. We got "up close and personal" with dolphins, pelicans & flamingos. We saw some phenomenal billionaire homes & enjoyed an hour of shelling on a private beach where we collected more spectacular beauties than we ever hoped... More

The tour was amazing but don't ever book online. They didn't call me to let me know that the boat wasn't picking up on shore. It was picking up on a dock instead. We got to the beach hut at the Crystal Shores for pickup (walked 1/2 hour) and they didn't even have our name and were super confused with... More
