We had a thrilling and safe tour with Captain Ron! He is so patient and a great teacher in jet ski safety and with the water wildlife! I was a little uneasy about driving the jet ski but after 15 minutes I was ready to go. He is very knowledgeable about the mangroves and took great pictures too. Great fun for all ages! My teenagers and husband had a blast as well! We will definitely do this again next time we are in Marco Island!

Such a great experience! This was our second time around so we were thinking it might be less thrilling than the first time. Not so!!!
He is so thorough with instructions and safety is his first priority. At the same time, he allows his groups to experience a great ride tailored to their abilities. The dolphins are great to see and he takes great photos to capture the day but I would go again even without the promise of seeing dolphins. The wildlife and habitat are cool and Captain Ron points out interesting highlights.

Well done!

Capt Ron was the best part of our Florida trip! He was very knowledgeable and kept the entire 3-hour tour interesting and exciting. Somehow Capt Ron managed to track down a family of four dolphins that we pursued for half an hour. The tour really delivered on what it promised. Beyond that, Capt Ron is super cool and thoughtful and you’ll be safe the entire time.

Awesome time for all 8 of us! 4 of us had never jet skied before and Capt Ron taught us all so well that 15 min into the trip we were all Pro's. Great instructor and Tour. Tons of dolphins up close and personal. Jimmy was great taking our reservation and fitting us into a time that worked perfect.

Such a fun day today, felt very safe, Capt. Ron explained the process to us very well before getting in the water, tested our skills, and then it was off to 10K islands. Lots of Dophin, saw manatee, a turtle, and birds. Totally worth it !!!
