Booked passage on the pontoon tour boat, Calusa Spirt, with Captain Shawn and his able crew. Perfect day out, from a smooth beach landing to pick us up in front of our hotel (Hilton) all the way to a convenient return. We saw lots of dolphin activity from the start and had a lovely cruise among some of the mangrove islands nearby. We also enjoyed a stop on an island for some shelling; great finds there by all. The boat was in top shape and well set up for the job. The crew were all very personable and helpful . Captain Shawn was top shelf all the way from boat handling to narrating and fun facts about the wildlife and the environment. Do not miss this one….highly recommended for all ages.

Nice jet skis, great location, and easy booking. We quickly found a pod of dolphins and they put on a great performance for us. We briefly saw the noses of a few manatees but they quickly submerged. We all had a lot of fun but be aware that there isn't a lot of tour interaction on this trip and it is more of a guide leading you through the islands and mangrove tunnels on a high speed jet ski sprint. The scenery is beautiful but you cover a lot of distance in a short period of time. It is a little expensive but worth doing at least once. We recommend the tour over simply jet skiing around the bay.

Easy pickup at JW Marriott beach. Friendly greeting. Leave shoes and clothes in beach cabana before Boat pickup. Other groups were friendly and supportive. My daughter got motion sickness on the boat, and in the air. Almost passed out. The boat crew got her a jet ski to get he back quickly to the beach. Great effort. Other passengers helped her in and out of the boat. But she thought the parasailing was GREAT1 Overall a very professional operation. And got more than 100 top quality photos, too. Outstanding activity on the beach. Also, great communication. Booked in the pm the day before but weather intruded. Several phone calls to change date and reschedule. Great attention to the weather. Go in the morning in the summer1

We were a party of 4: 2 for Parasailing and 2 for Banana boating. Both events were sensational. The Captains were outstandingly generous with their service to our having a great time. They communicated the rules clearly and seemed invested in providing good trips. I heartily recommend this vendor. We will use them again with future guests.
