Our trip wouldn’t have been complete without this adventure around the backwater, mangroves, and coast of Marco Island. If you enjoy wildlife, jet skiing, and being guided by very knowledgeable people, then Avi and his daughter Rosie are the ones for you! Not only did we see dolphins and Cape Romano, but we also had a fantastic time driving jet skis in and out of the many mangrove islands!If you’re on the fence about booking this adventure, I encourage you to sign up! We got to sit back and enjoy while Avi (professional photographer of 18+ years) took photos for us the entire time! It was definitely worth every penny, and then some!

We went with our two kids and it was a blast. Avi knows what he’s doing. We saw lots of wildlife and dolphins. Must do if you’re in Marco Island.

My family went on a tour this morning with Avi and we all had an absolute blast! This was our second time going with Avi and he is the only guide we will ever go with. His knowledge of the 10,000 islands and its diverse wildlife is absolutely unmatched. 10/10 would recommend.

Great day on the water with Avi. A small group (only 6 jet skis). We were able to go at a nice pace. Got to see many dolphins. Avi was very knowledgeable about the area and the dolphins. He was very considerate of the wildlife and boaters in the area. Would highly recommend and plan to go again when we return to Marco Island. Bring one suntan lotion per jet ski and a small cloth to clean your glasses.

Amazing tour

WOW what a fantastic adventure. It all started talking with Nancy on the phone about my questions and booking . She was wonderful!Amanda and I get to the marina to meet Avi and he was so much fun to talk to and he made you feel like we were the only customers. He told us we were going to have a private tour due to schedule changes and our guide would be Shamir. Shamir was an awesome guide and after a few minutes of going over our jet ski we are launched from the truck ramp into the water and away we went.After cruising at a fun speed for about 30 minutes we were surrounded by playful dolphins who were at times 4-5 ft from us . We visited with the dolphins watching them entertain us surfacing and then diving back down. They seemed to have as much fun as we were. After about 30 minutes the dolphins seemed to escort us out into deeper watersFrom there we continue our journey thru the 10,000 Islsnds. We took a 5 minute break to have some cold water and Shamir exlpained about the beauty of where we are and the history of the islands. Clearly Shamir was very passionate about being a guide and introducing newcomers to his world.Thank you Shamir, Avi and Nancy for a most memorable adventure and look forward to joining you another time.

Avi is absolutely awesome and truly a dolphin whisperer. We rode the waves, and then swam and played with dolphins. My family of 5 did this unforgettable experience, really a lifetime memory!

We did a morning jet ski tour of the 10,000 islands and had an incredible time! Avi was so nice and extremely knowledgeable. He is truly the dolphin whisperer and it was an experience I will never forget. Well worth every penny and lots of great photos and videos to take home. We will be doing this every year from now on!

We just finished a trip today, it was unforgettable, we are parents of 2 kids, 16 and 18. And we are a family that loves JetSki Trips across the United States. And I can surely say that the trip we had with Avi’s Water Sports in Marco Island, is on a whole different level compared to many other places we have been. All the JetSkis provided were 2022 Yamahas with a lot of room for storage, a very comfortable and smooth ride, and just the right amount of power for a great experience. Avi guided us to places we couldn’t have even imagined to arrive to on our own. And after just 30 minutes of cruising we ended up spotting many many dolphins and wildlife. We were also taken to amazing sites like the bungalows and proceeded to explain the history of the sites as well. Avi is a wonderful person and a very patient man as well, it was very comforting to be within his presence and he did an absolutely perfect job explaining how to operate the JetSkis. This was indeed the cherry on top to our trip to Florida. We highly recommend anyone to do this trip if you also plan on coming to Florida. All in all Avi made this trip an experience to remember forever, 10/10 would do again.

I would so do this again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely the best way to see dolphins on Marco! Avi and Shamir were our guides and were super friendly and knowledgeable. They were very accommodating and managed our large group of 14 people. We saw lots of dolphins in many different locations. The tour route was a fun mix of zipping through mangrove channels and flying across open waters. Everything was more than “as advertised” and a great value.

Had the most amazing experience on this jet ski dolphin tour! Avi was super knowledgeable and a fun tour guide to have for this experience. We were able to get within 5 feet of the dolphins in their natural habitat which was truly unforgettable. If you’re planning a visit to the Marco Island area this jet ski dolphin tour is a must!

The highlight of our vacation on Marco. You won't find another jetski tour that has Avi's knowledge, personality and enthusiasm. We saw plenty of dolphins and other wildlife. I wouldn't use any other guide. You simply can't go wrong with Avi. Far and away the best thing you can do in Southwest Florida. Be prepared for the time of your life!

Most amazing thing ever! My family goes out with Avi almost every year and it is always the highlight of their trip. We went out and saw dolphins up very close and saw a 15 ft hammerhead shark just a few feet away from the jet skis. I'll never forget how much fun we had, beautiful tour and always exceeds expectations, would highly recommend.

We were fortunate to have somebody recommend Avi's, so paying it forward. Fantastic tour with Avi, has a great personality, oodles of knowledge. Lucky us, we were the only riders that morning and during the tour Avi came across an Egret that was caught in a tree branch. He was able to rescue the bird and take into the marina for care. The dolphins swam right up alongside us. Having never ridden a waverunner, after a few minutes we were cruising like experts. Highly recommend Avi, great time with lasting memories. While we brought a camera, Avi also provides photos of your tour.

What an amazing trip! Avi (and his daughter) led us on an expert excursion. We got the perfect mix of fast jet ski adventure with peaceful nature encounters. We saw so many dolphins and got to enjoy a quiet mangrove bay. Avi provides water and takes (great!) photos, so you can leave everything else on land. Highly recommended!

If your looking for a guide that will take excellent care of you, Avi’s Water Sports is the place for you. We had reservations for the day after the tropical storm came through and Avi made sure that we were in safe areas but still got to experience all of the cool things!We covered lots of miles and got to see things that you usually don’t get to see when on jet skis. We got up close and personal with dolphins mating, got to ride with them for a while and Avi lead us through the Ten Thousand Islands!

First off, Mr. Avi was very kind and very funny. I felt super safe and had so much fun. This was the highlight of my trip to Florida. The jetskis were in great condition and ran very smoothly. The route we took was beautiful. He knew a lot about the area, and I felt like I learned a little bit as well. We saw dolphins, and we even played with them by making a wake and they jumped around in it. It was magical and overall was just such a great trip!

If you are in the Marco Island area a jet ski dolphin tour with Avi Water Sports is a must!My wife & I are in our mid 50's and this tour was the highlight of our trip!Avi is a great instructor & tour guide! Avi spends time with you so you feel 100% comfortable, he shows you all the controls and how to be a safe operator. Avi is very knowledgeable of the waters and the eco system etc. Now the good stuff! The ride itself was awesome seeing and keeping a close but safe distance away from dolphins and manatees etc. The pictures Avi takes of the tour are priceless and they give you a lifetime of memories!Thank you Avi for making our Jet ski dolphin tour the highlight of our vacation!! Next time we come to Marco Island we will be sure to book with you again. Nancy was a pleasure to book with also!Sincerely,Jim & Debbie P

Absolutely incredible time! Cannot hesitate to say how much I recommend taking your jetski tour here. Avi was extremely friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife, and how best to take the tour while staying safe. He has been doing this for almost 20 years and it absolutely shows, he knows the area like the back of his hand. The jet skis were in great condition, and we were able to see plenty of dolphins and manatees up close and personal. On top of that, he takes amazing pictures! Cannot recommend enough, if you’re planning a trip to Marco island, Avi’s Water Sports is an absolute must. 10/10.
