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!

The crew were responsible for some true highlights of our vacation. Their friendly service and positive attitudes were infectious. The Dolphin Tour on Wave Runners with Andre as our guide was terrific! We highly recommend them.

Mid Island Water Sports is amazing! Parasailing was super fun but it got even better when we went on the dolphin tour lead by Andre! We saw dozens of dolphins jumping and swimming right along side our jet skis. The experience was defiantly worth the money, we will have mang memories for the rest of our lives!

My family & I took the Dolphin Tour with Chad on March 13, 2017! It was my first time on a jet-ski in way too many years. Highly recommend this tour & our guide! Chad was an amazing guide, fun, knowledgeable, safe & had the patience of a saint! It was a wonderful adventure! Thank you Chad!

Wife and I took the dolphin tour and it was everything we hoped for and more. You can get up to speed, roughly 55 mph. Be prepared to see a lot of Dolphins! Next time we come back we are going to do this again.

We took the jet-ski dolphin tour and had an incredible time! Shawn provided great customer service and Chad took us on a wonderful adventure! Great way to play on the water, see the sites that you can't explore from the sandy shores, and experience dolphins in their native habitat. We will be back!

Another great experience with Mid Island Water Sports. We went on the dolphin tour for the 6th time. We end up going every year we visit the island. Once again our guide Mike was great. Our 1 1/2 hour tour went a little longer which was fun. The more time on the jet ski the better. We saw plenty of... More

Had a great trip with Chad as our guide. I took my 10-year-old daughter and we had a great time. It was our first time on a Waverunner so it was nice that Chad told us it wasn't a race - that we could go at the speed that was comfortable for us. If he got too far ahead he... More

We signed up for a 90 minute "dolphin, manatee and sea ray" tour. Out into the Gulf, then into the Inter-coastal. It was too early in the season for manatees, but saw lots of dolphins! Michael was our guide. He kept up a good pace, and was super knowledgeable about the area. Great time! We did the tour from the... More
