About Us

Marco Island Water Sports


Mark Bahr, owner/operator of Marco Island Water Sports has been providing water sports adventures to Marco Island since 1981. We offer 10,000 Island Guided WaveRunner Tours and powered Catamaran Eco-Cruises into the edge of the Everglades, parasailing above the Gulf of Mexico, WaveRunner rentals, and other water sports. All activities serve Marco beach visitors as well as Marco’s three major hotels: the JW Marriott Marco Island, Hilton Marco Island, and Marriott’s Crystal Shores, and conveniently leave from the beachfront.

In January of 2013, Mr. Bahr added a fourth location, Naples Beach Water Sports, located on Vanderbilt Beach at the Ritz-Carlton, serving beach visitors and other prestigious Naples hotels. In January 2014, to be sure that no guests would be disappointed on the few days that blustery weather was not optimum for beach departures, a fifth location was added in Goodland, on the edge of the 10,000 Islands. Nestled in a sheltered cove at Calusa Island Marina, guests get an entirely different eco-experience. Here, WaveRunners and boats depart from floating docks, thereby affording the opportunity to enjoy water activities in nearly all weather conditions. The success of Marco Island and Naples Beach Water Sports’ seven-days-a-week operation is greatly due to plentiful, safe, top-quality equipment and a dedicated, experienced, and hardworking team of professionals, many of whom have been with the company for years. A top choice for corporate gatherings as well as vacationing families and locals, no matter which location and what activities they choose, guests can expect to be treated to a personal, informative, and exciting experience.

Guaranteed to be the time of your life!
