Capt. Ron's Awesome Everglades Adventures

If you're looking for ADVENTURE, you found the right place! I have been guiding waverunner adventures for over 32 years and in my spare time I volunteer as a first responder for hurricane SAR with my waverunners and airboat and have worked Katrina, Harvey, Irma, Florence and Michael . I invented the 1 hour waverunner tour in 1987 and eventually turned that into a 3 hour adventure! I always use new model and state-of-the art skis equipped with BRAKES and electronic shifting and Capt Ron's is the ONLY waverunner adventure that employs an underwater microphone so guests can actually here dolphin speaking underwater. I carry a full EMT medical kit including an AED device and am certified in CPR and First Aid. All adventures cover at least 35 miles and up to 50 miles and are covered by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I know there are cheap tours available but they pale in comparison to a Capt Ron's adventure. If you want a real Waverunner adventure look no further!
