Capt Joe and Brady made our tour of the islands and waterways around Marco Island relaxing and enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed the commentary and information, and especially the efforts made to get dolphins to follow the boat's wake....success!! We got great close up photos of two dolphins jumping and playing behind us. The shelling stop was a real treat--amazing to... More

Our family went on a boat tour that include dolphin-spotting, environmental information, and a stop at an uninhabited island for excellent shelling. Large stable boat, drinks and snacks, and most important a knowledgeable guide (Brady) and skipper (Captain Joe). Highly recommended. Don't be put off if the water is rough at the beach hotels; the passage in sheltered waterways. Our... More

My husband, 5 year old daughter and I went on an amazing para-sailing adventure. It was our first time and it was great. Capt. Shawn and 1st Mate Parker were the best. Very knowledgeable and friendly and worked well with our daughter to make sure she was comfortable and the equipment fit properly. The add on of the pictures is... More

What a great time! We went out on the Calusa Spirit on a shelling and dolphin tour. We saw dozens of dolphins and manatees thee separate times. Captain joe and first mate Brady were awesome the kept the kids entertained and did a gray job. We are going back again!

My 13 year old son and I did the wave runner tour. We had an amazing time. Our guide Brian was fantastic. Not only did we see dolphins and manatee, but we also learned about the ecosystem around the 10,000 islands. Brian even got a couple of dolphins to follow his wave runner. All in all, a great safe time.... More

Our tour consisted of riding on jet skis through the mangrove islands at a moderate speed and stopping twice while still on our skis for our guide to tell us very basic information about the dolphin we spotted. I personally was disappointed that there was no history or explanation about the mangrove islands or talk about any other wildlife out... More

Had a great time with guide Brian Scuderu today. My 11-year-old son seemed to enjoy Brian's teaching as much as riding around on the WaveRunners. Great technique to get close to some playful dolphins. Everything was well run. Equipment was new, and the entire staff was helpful. Definitely recommend.

Brian our guide was the best I have ever seen. He found us Manatees, Dolphins, Osprey and turtles and taught us about the local eco systems. He was great with our kids and they cant wait to go back next year. The whole experience was excellent and make sure that you ask to have Brian as your guide, he made... More

We have gone on several wave runner Eco tours these guys from the marriott. I am always impressed with their patience, knowledge of the area and concern for everyone's fun and safety. Today we were with Mike. He took inventory of first time riders, paid them the attention they needed and also let others with a little more experience on... More

Hubby and daughter went parasailing. Had a fun time. Goes VERY high. My only issue is the price. It is $100 per person. No discount if more than one goes. Bought their picture service ($35). Should have just had my daughter had someone on boat take pics on iPhone. Don't get me wrong, the pictures were good, but again, $35... More
