Our guide Avi was the "dolphin whisperer". He knows the territory and provided an amazing tour for the group. We had originally booked a day earlier but a storm was coming in and he gave us honest advice to postpone. What a difference a day makes! We saw tons of wildlife, had a fun ride and made the most of our adventure. I would recommend this tour to anyone and will definitely go again when I am back in the area.

Avi was our tour guide on the three hour tour and it was our first time on wave runners. He took his time teaching us how to use the wave runners and coached us on how best to turn, stop and so on. He made sure we felt confident using the wave runners before we started going up to faster speeds. What an amazing experience, he truly is a dolphin whisperer. It seemed that some of the dolphins actually were happy to see him and would stick by his side. His knowledge of the islands and the eco system that supports it is impressive and you can tell that he loves what he does. We did have isolated storms in the area and he was constantly checking with his radar information to keep us away from any bad weather. We were lucky to go when the tide had just started to come back in and at the end of the tour he took us to a sand bar out in the gulf of Mexico where the water was crystal clear and about 10 inches deep and we were able to hunt for sand dollars. Just walking on the sand bar in the gulf looking around was so surreal, that in itself was an experience of a life time add the experience on the Wave Runners with the dolphins and the tranquility of wind through your hair as you see all the beautiful islands go by made the whole experience well worth the time and money. Because we had to maneuver around storms our 3 hour tour ended up being almost 4 hours. Avi didn't cut corners in any way and we felt safe the entire time. When we return to Marco island we will definitely be booking this adventure tour again,.

Even if you have never been on a waverunner before, Avi's thorough and well-planned orientation puts the "driver" at ease. In addition, the practice time before heading out on the excursion builds confidence. We loved being close to the habitat and the wildlife, but especially the dolphins! Being so close to the surface of the water makes this an unforgettable experience. It was great to give our full attention to our tour and not worry about taking pictures or getting a camera or phone wet. Avi took many amazing pictures and we all took them home right from the parking lot. Everything about this trip was organized, safe, fun and a perfect vacation highlight!

Never road a wave-runner or jet-ski before and I had my wife on the back. But after first-class training and information, we were headed into the mangroves to swim (ride) with the dolphins. Everything from start to finish was handled professionally. Wish there was a 4 hour adventure offered!! And thanks for taking over 100 photos and putting them on CD for each of us. AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!
