“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was our first experience on a jet ski, my wife and younger kids were a bit skeptical, my older kids all excited. It turned out to be a great experience for all of us: the tour combined the need for safety and stability with the need for speed! It takes a little while before you get out of the marina, just enough for everyone to get used to the machine. Once in the open water, the fun starts! We took the two hour tour, which is OK although we should have added an extra hour. Time flies when you're having fun! And yes, you do get the dolphin(s) and the pictures as advertised! One of the highlights of our trip, would for sure do it again! FYI, the jet skis can accommodate 1, 2 or 3 riders comfortably and you pay per jet ski, not per rider.

“A Terrific Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Thouroughly enjoyable trip off Marco Island. Seven or eight pelicans were within ten feet. Kreis Island is simply beautiful with its' white sandy beach.

A walk, a little rest and lunch for about forty-five minutes was just right.

Also, the best sit-on top kayak. The front kind of skims the surface of the water.

“We made the right choice and everyone was spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were staying at the Marriott and the dolphin and shelling tours were sold out. I googled and found DREAMLANDER TOURS and they answered and accommodated my family of five the next day with our own private boat ride and with George our super tour guide. Just PERFECT and also less expensive!
I would visit them again on our next vacation to Marco. A wonderful family owned business, they couldn't have been nicer...

“Good Family Times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Loved it! Top notch. Did the jet ski tour and my kids were smiling from ear to ear! We did find the dolphins and jet skiing through the mangrove trees was awesome.
Thank you, I would def. do again!

“Best Prices and Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We had two great experiences with Dreamlander tours on our recent vacation to Marco Island. First my boyfriend and I took a fishing trip and when we were done, Steve cleaned the fish for us and had it sent to a local restaurant so we could enjoy our own catches, which was really nice. He even came to the restaurant while we were there to make sure everything went accordingly. Everyone that works for this company is polite, friendly, knowledgeable, and very inviting. We enjoyed the Dreamlander Tours staff so much that we decided to do the "Marco fun run" jet ski tour a few days later, and again we were not disappointed. They are great people and will show you a good time! They always took lots of neat pictures that you get on a disk. Best of all they were the best priced tour services we found on the island, hands down.
