Overview

Mid Island Water Sports has been providing the best waverunner rentals, parasailing and dolphin tours on Fort Myers Beach for over 25 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!

Very friendly and accomadating group of people. The Dolphin Tour is the best, we have been doing for 20+ years and will continue to do so. Started out when my kids were little and now I'm taking my grandchildren on them!

Took my family to Fort Myers beach for the day and rode the waverunners. We had a blast and the crew really made us feel safe. Already planning to try the dolphin tour next.

Any age can ride but they must be 16 to drive. Of course we always use good judgment based on the child. Younger children often do best when going for shorter rides. 4 year old and up generally love it.
