We had a great week and experience with YOLO! We rented two paddleboards from them one day and para-sailed the next. These guy are pros. Your equipment is tested and ready to go. My 13 and 11 year old daughters had a great time paddling. We also reserved a parasail adventure with YOLO. It was amazing. Had a great time.... More

We rented 4 bikes that were on decent shape for 5 days. Reasonably priced. Only issue I had with them, like most places on CAPTIVA, is that they close early, 5pm. They were pleasant and offer a good variety of watersporys too. In the past we went parasailing and wave runners, both great times and highly recommend the parasailing.

The bikes we rented on were well maintained cruisers. We had a great time using the bikes to explore the island and ride down to Sanibel. The young lady working at the desk, however, was condescending and unfriendly. I understand that it was Spring Break, that they were quite busy and she must deal with a lot of people. However,...

Office staff was terrible and unorganized. Not friendly at all. Lack of communication is a real problem with their help. If you book them make sure you confirm what you are booking a day before you arrive. They have no customer parking which is a huge problem! We did the wave runner tour to north Captiva which was fun and... More

Check in was simple and we were able to park on their site. Booked a tandem parasail with the photo package. We shared the experience with 2 other couples and headed out to sea on schedule. We were airborne for approx 10 mins which was just about right. Well organised, and safe for all abilities and ages. Do wear a... More

Today my 16 year old son and I went on a wave runner tour. We both had an incredible time, he loved driving the wave runner and I loved being the passenger and enjoying the beautiful scenery. We stopped for 20 minutes at a beautiful beach on North Captiva where there was an abundance of shells and saw many dolphins... More

Upon arriving in town we rented 3 bikes for the family. It was toward the end of the day and they jumped in the truck and delivered our bikes for us. We were staying at the far end of South Seas Resort so we rode the bikes every morning for our morning Starbuck's ++ (just under 4 miles) Another day... More

My son and I went on our second parasailing trip a few weeks ago and had an amazing time. The folks at YOLO are so nice and professional. They were in contact with us to adjust our schedule because the weather was a bit too windy during our assigned time. We were able to bump a few hours and get... More
