Took a 2 hour Eco tour with my daughter on a jetski guided by Dale. What a nice guy.
A good long trip out to the Gulf and saw dolphins and manatees on the way then paused for a quick swim at Passage Key out to the north of Anna Maria. Good price for the trip too. They are very flexible - can organise the trip to be leisurely trip in sheltered waters or a sporty trip out towards open water.

Cruised around the island and saw lots of wildlife. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our 12 and 9 year old daughters had a blast.

First time on Jetskis for all of us. We did the tour with Dale who was awesome and very knowledgeable. We saw a lot of wild life and took a dip. So glad we did the tour or we would have been so lost. We will be back!! Making another reservation for Friday!

Our family if 3 (2 adults and an 11 yr old girl) went on a jet ski tour with Dale. I wanted a tour since we are not very familiar with the area. I was planning for all of us to go on one ski but decided we would be better off on 2 which meant I needed to drive my own. I'm in my mid 40s and never driven a jet ski before so I was a little nervous about driving. It was so much fun I'm glad I had my own and got to learn how to drive it.

We had a beautiful hot day, not too choppy and we saw a bunch f dolphin, several manatees and a lot of other sea life when we stopped for a swim at a bird refuge. It was great to get up close on the skis to see everything. The water was really clear. On the way back we got to go faster ( fast for me at least) and it was smooth so I had no trouble keeping up.

I wanted to go back the next day. Dale was great and reservations were easy. My daughter loved it and can't wait until she is old enough to drive one on her own. The location is convenient and easy to get to. The jet skis have a dry box so you can take a camera and other small items. We got some great video of the manatees.

Thank you for your fabulous review! Dale is amazing :) Please come on back out. The tour is a great way to see the area, wildlife and how well you handle a waverunner. The guide is there for your enjoyment.....for Dale's enjoyment also as most of you can tell. Dale has lots of tour ideas. No 2 are the same.
