Mid Island Water Sports has been providing the best waverunner rentals, parasailing and dolphin tours on Fort Myers Beach for over 23 YEARS. Enjoy our hour and a half long excursion with a guide through the back bay while you drive your own waverunner and experience wildlife such as dolphin, manatees, rays, fish and birds from up close. We also offer freestyle riding with the largest riding area on the beach and the least boat traffic. Parasailing is a must with 1 to 4 flyers at a time!

My 2 children and I rented a jet ski for a half hour mid June. The guy running the boot was down to earth and answered all my questions. There was another guy whom helped us get on jet ski and repeated some instructions and we were off. It was enjoyable time and we will come back and do it... More

First time Wonderful experience. Smooth ride, easy access on the beach. Our ride out to the Parasailing boat was quick and easy. The guys at all three of our contact points were friendly and informative. I would go again in a heart beat.

Had a great time on the dolphin tour with Chad as our tour guide. We saw many dolphins and other wildlife. We actually saw our first dolphin on the beach in front of the sandpiper. We really just had a fantastic time riding the jet skis. I liked how he gave us a good 20 minutes to get acclimated to... More

prior to scheduling a parasailing trip for my son and granddaughters, i made 2 trips to the booth to ask questions. I specificially asked if we booked the higher priced trip, would each of the 3 of them receive a picture. I was told yes as this was part of the 75.00 package. i pd 238.00 and when they returned...

I would like to offer THE most sincere apology for the miscommunication! You were absolutely supposed to receive one picture per person. The gentleman who works at the booth was correct in telling you that when he booked your excursion. Unfortunately, the system of using the Polaroids just started that week. Prior to last week a digital picture was offered... More

We chose the jet ski wildlife tour. Our guide, Mike, worked very hard to ensure everyone had a great time and got to see manatees and dolphins. We had the option at times to go faster and have some fun on the ocean, which was great with our two teenage boys. It was a great time, and made our vacation!... More

We went this week with Captain Nate on a jet ski dolphin tour and had a great time. We saw at least a dozen dolphins and Nate didn't make us just take in a slow line the whole time (like I feared), we got to play too, which is what I like! Sadly, I lost my phone on the trip... More

They offer a fantastic jet ski tour. It takes you back behind the island and you get to experience several types of wildlife. We have seen manatee, dolphins, Sharks and various birds. The ride goes fast and slow. So you get different action while you are on the water. I like this option better than renting a jet ski for... More
