We rented a couple of jet skis from Mid Island. The service was very friendly. They explained everything and we really enjoyed the time.

Our family had a blast riding the jet skis from Mid Island Water Sports this summer! They were a ton of fun for all of us (ages 10 - 48). The jet skis were in excellent condition and the instructions given by the Mid Island Water Sports employees were perfect. Highly recommend using them for all water sports activities.

We are a family of four, with two older teenage daughters. We have taken Dolphin boat rides in both Egypt and the Maldives, [ my daughter is studying Marine Biology at Uni ], where you have to search a hour before you see a dolphin and then as they are normally travelling some where it is either hard to keep...

We loved the convenience of walking right from Gull Wing to the booth. We anticipated a nice ride but it was much longer, in which we greatly enjoyed, that we expected. We saw dolphins over and over. The tour guide was fantastic. We would do this again and again. Highly recommend.

Just had an AMAZING time on the dolphin tour, with our guide Andre. Saw some dolphins and some manatees. And lots of fun whipping around in the open water. At the end of it all as we were coming in my beautiful wife got thrown from the jetski. She wasnt hurt and we had a great laugh. Andre made sure... More

That's awesome thank you for your feedback! We're very happy you and your wife were able to have some fun out on the water with Andre as well as seeing manatees not only dolphins. Glad your wife was able to have a good laugh but more so that she wasn't injured. Come back and visit with us. More

We took the jet ski tour with Chad and really enjoyed it. We saw several Dolphins and "cut loose" with the jet skis between locations. There were Dolphins surfacing ten feet from us. We even saw the dolphin tour boat we were going to take at the same area. Much nicer being on a jet ski and controlling your location... More

Glad you had fun out on the tour with Chad. You definitely get a more personalized experience being out on a wave runner for dolphin tours. Make sure to come back and see us! Thank you so much for your time and feedback. More

My husband and I have been in wave runners several times on various beaches. We wanted to give our 9 & 6 year old a try at them this vacation. We rented two, 2-person wave runners for the 'tour'. We assumed it would be this nice little tour around a small little area like we had in previous experiences elsewhere.....boy... More

Top trip with good guide Mike. In our group we could not speed up very well due to other participants, but we could make the whole tour with many dolphin spotting. Definitely one of the best experiences of this area.

The Mid Island Water Sports was adjacent to our hotel so it was very convenient. They provided chair and umbrella rentals for the beach in front of the hotel and water sports. We used them for both chair rentals and jet skis. The first day we went on a jet ski for an hour rental. They gave good instructions on... More

Booked a morning dolphin tour for 5 adults and 5 grandkids (ages 5 through 15. Chad did a great job from start to finish and all adults and kids were thrilled with the experience. The numerous stops allowed close up experiences with the dolphins much to the delight of adults and kids. Highly recommend this experience.
