What a great experience! We met with our guide about 30 minutes prior to the tour. They provided wind jackets (pants too, if needed) and life vests. The runners (they look like snowmobiles for the water) are perfect for two, so families can also enjoy them. The maximum speed allowed is 40 miles per hour and you are briefed on how to operate them.
Once we were all set, the group took turns heading out into the waves. Of course we had to go out first. Once there we headed south in a single line around the end of the island near Cape Marco Condo units and into the island. What a fabulous time we had. Although the morning was in the mid sixties, the sun kept us quite warm. The spray is minimal so you stay quite comfortable. Bathing suits are fine and I choose to slip a jacket over my suit, just to make sure. Cameras and valuables can be stored in a waterproof compartment and, as you can see in the photos, these wave runners are fun!
We were able to enjoy the open ocean, the plant life and the mangroves from a different perspective. The high point of the hour and a half tour was the dolphins. We stopped as they approached us and they swam all around us. We could hear them breathing as they came up for air. This is wildlife at its best. The dolphins surfaced, as they do when eating, and frolicked all around our group. Seeing them from shore is exciting, but being up close and personal is thrilling.
Looking to take a tour? When at the beaches of Marco, there are several tiki huts near the larger hotels. These are the places to go to either rent a wave runner or sign up for the tour. We recommend the tour, as when you rent the runner you are limited in the area that you are allowed to go. With the tour you follow the guide and travel several miles. Prices are reasonable for beach entertainment. There are age restrictions for the drivers as well. Please check with the rental places for exact information.
