A work colleague recommended this tour to me as he knew we were in the area. Booking all done over email with Jimmy. 3 hour drive from St Pete's at 6am but it was well worth it. Avi us a great host and seeing the Dolphins so close is the highlight. Jetskis are in good condition and the tour allows... More

Thanks so much for the review! We have many guests that drive from Boca on the east coast and Siesta key on the west coast. You have driven the furthest of all coming from St Pete! Thank you for that! I know it's not cheap but we guarantee every tour to be a five star experience. There's been several tour... More

From the moment we booked our tour, the customer service was outstanding! Capt. Ron and his staff are attentive to every detail. They make sure you are knowledgeable and comfortable on the machines and then let the games begin! After some riding on open water, you then ski breathtaking mazes through the Ten Thousand Islands.Capt. Ron has superior knowledge of... More

There are many places to rent or use personal watercraft on Marco Island. If you want a half day, very well orchestrated tour around the area.... seeing dolphins and the local sites, this is the best!!!

This is a well done excursion throughout the 10,000 islands. The Jet ski are in very good shape and well maintained. The excursion itself is wonderful you get to see all the small Islands easily with the Jet Ski. Our guide was great (Aldi ??) and explained to us all about the different Islands , the dolphins, and was even... More

Capt. Ron's is an awesmoe time out on the water in the Ten-Thousand Islands south of Marco Island. They have really got it together when it comes to water-touring. We've gone with them several times and each time has been a blast. Even though our kids are now college-age, they still enjoy going out on the PWC's with Capt. Ron's... More

This was our second adventure and it was so good the first time around that we did a big detour to Marco Island for 1 night as part of our trip just so we could get on the wave runners again. Again, brilliant, lots of dolphins as we expected and we got the added bonus of a beach walk this... More

Upon check in we are seated on the wave runners which are the trailer, the guide goes over the rules and tells us what we can expect. We had a great time. We saw dolphins and many birds, even a spoonbill which was really cool. My mistake was not taking a camera. My upper body did not get wet so... More
