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! We also offer a full beach service with cabanas, chair and umbrella rentals and even Stand Up Paddleboards!

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

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.

Chad and Mike S. made our experience the best! So glad we decided to rent them for one hour, anything less would not have been enough.

My three kids (14, 13, and 9) and I went parasailing with Mid Island Water Sports this morning and I couldn't wait to come back and write them a great review. The boat captain who took us to the larger boat was so friendly and the guys on the parasail boat (Nick and Matt, I think) were phenomenal. My younger... More
