Capt Ron's does only one thing, Waverunner Adventures. Our reviews speak for themselves. After managing Marco Island's largest Watersports company for 23yrs and dealing with hotel guests from the Marriott, Hilton, Marco Beach Ocean Resort, and Marriott Crystal Shores for nearly 30yrs, we believe we know the "secret" to meeting and keeping new customers. NO "nickle & dime", NO hidden or extra fees, everything is INCLUDED. Our philosophy is simple; ALWAYS do the right thing, and stick to ONE thing and do it WELL! We'll treat you like family & friends and always have a 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied for ANY reason. Try us out and see why SO MANY are SKIPPING the Waverunner tours offered at exclusive beachfront hotels for Capt Ron's Awesome Everglades Adventures!

Mum, Dad, two daughters and one son in law decided that racing jet skis around the 1000 islands of mangrove off Marco Island was something that they needed to do. Captain Ron's Awesome Everglades Adventures was chosen to provide the jet skis and Captain Ron himself was our guide. He started our journey by explaining in 10 minutes of practical... More

They had an opening on Tuesday morning which we took. When we arrived everything was set for us and the other 6-couples who going that day. Capt. Ron made sure everyone knew how to operate the...

Capt. Ron took us on a ride of a lifetime. He knows when the dolphins are hungry or when they want to surf in your wake and play! The sea turtles and the manatees are waiting for him. His 30 years plus is evident on every turn. He treated us as if we were family. A fantastic morning. With every... More

SO much marine life to watch today. Ron knew just how to track them down and after many trips out with him, today was the most exciting ever. We learned to flow with the dolphins and get them to play and jump. Best ever!

My wife and teenage son and daughter all had a blast! Ron's knowledge of the area is obvious when guiding us through the winding route in the mangrove islands. The machines are top notch, steady, powerful and handle great. Safety is emphasized and his paramount concern. We found dolphin right off the bat and Ron got them to jump and... More

Our first try at renting jet skis on Marco Island. Man did we hit this one out of the park! This is our 3rd year in a row to Marco Island. We have now found a yearly tradition. Captain Ron was the best. Very patient with his instructions. Very safety minded. He really tried hard to take pictures with us... More

We have a home in Marco but hadn't seen the whole island by water in the year's we've been going down. I've followed Captain Ron on Facebook and love his postings. His trip was amazing...we didn't get as up close and personal as we'd have like to to dolphins but we respected that he respected their space....He is a trove... More

Thanks for your review! There are a few very rare times when dolphin just aren't in the mood. I treat them with respect and leave the area at the slightest hint because they are so smart that if I harass them one day they will likely remember and avoid me in the future. I'm sure your next trip will have... More
