We've been out with Captain Dustin Beatty of Materski and Wakeboard Charters many times in the Naples/Marco area. Firstly, Dustin is a complete professional - from his handling of the boat to his incredible on water "demonstrations" (which we love to see). Most important though he has the patience to work with anyone of any ability level in whatever they... More

Thanks Paul for your kind words. It means so much to our company, to know that we've had such an impact on families down on vacation in Marco IslandFlorida. Those who find water sports a passion are easy to teach and fun to have on our boats. See you in December....! More

We went out yesterday with my husband, myself and 4 of our kids ages 7,9,10,12. We had a fantastic time! Dustin has an amazing boat, and he handles it perfectly. Dustin has kids of his own so he knew just what they liked! The kids had a blast tubing and all of us including kids, my 50yr old husband and... More

My husband and two sons had a fabulous ski trip with Dustin just over a week ago - as a non-skier I just went along for the ride! The trip was arranged very quickly and efficiently thanks to Dustin's prompt response to my email. The boat was immaculate and safety never an issue. My family only wanted to ski but... More

My kids (8 and 10) and I had the good fortune to spend the afternoon out with Captain Dustin on his boat. We all had a chance to try water skiing (even me!!) and then the kids tubed. While we were out we saw two Dolphins who swam alongside us and jumped for us. An unexpected treat. Everything was relaxing... More

We have to leave Marco Island tomorrow and my teenage son wanted to go tubing. I hadn't seen any tubing on the island, but found Dustin online. It was 2:30 and I thought, what are the chances, but he was nice enough to fit in one more run for the day just for me and my son. So fun. He... More

We definitely picked the right activity for our teenage son and his friend. Captain Dustin did a great job teaching our son's friend to wakeboard for the first time. He also taught our son new techniques to help improve his wakeboarding. After wakeboarding, the boys had a blast tubing. We definitely would do this again!

We were fortunate to find Dustin to be our instructor. He was very responsive to our email inquiry and promptly answered all questions. Once we were on the boat, he was determined to make sure we both were able to "get up." He was a patient and thoughtful coach throughout. Fortunately, he had flexibility to stay out a bit longer...

Dustin was an excellent and personable wake board Instructor! We have two kids 11 and 13 who had never been wake boarding- he had them up in 2 to 3 tries. Great day trip for the family. We went shelling on an island for a while. We highly recommend to anyone to hire Dustin because it was worth every penny!!... More

We went to Marco to do some wakesurfing and boating with Dustin. Have to say that it was even better than we expected. Dustin was a great host and very good instructor. We did some water sports on the Nautique and also enjoyed seeing dolphins. A highlight was dinner in Naples. If you like boating wakesurfing and water sports, this... More
