About Us

How We Started?

Kevin and Sharon Faircloth, both Florida natives, opened Holiday Water Sports on Fort Myers Beach at the Pink Shell Beach Resort in 1991. 

“We started with three jetskis and 10 umbrellas,” said Kevin Faircloth, President of Holiday Water Sports.  “Sharon and I worked every single day in the beginning, and only had a day off when it rained.”

Since that time, with a lot of hard work and dedication to customer service and safety, Holiday Water Sports now has three locations on Ft. Myers Beach.   One at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina, one at the Best Western Beach Resort and one at DiamondHead Beach Resort.

“We both grew up in a beach town and we wanted to raise our family on the beach too,” said Sharon Faircloth, Vice President.  “Our three children love the water and all watersports activities.”

Holiday Water Sports’ mission is to provide family-friendly water sports activities that guests will remember for the rest of their lives.

“Family vacations mark the passing of time.  We all look back at family photos and remember the great vacations we had together.  We want to make our guests vacations’ an experience they will talk about for generations,” said Sharon.

Families have been coming to Holiday Water Sports year after year.  Many are now bringing their children and grandchildren back for a visit.

“We love our repeat customers.  Supporting our small business each year makes all the difference for us,” said Kevin. 

With the help of partner Mark Weber, the Faircloth’s expanded operations to a sister company, Holiday Adventure Tours and Boat Rental. 

“At Holiday Adventure Tours and Boat Rental we have a wide variety of power boat rentals, fishing charters, kayak tours, shelling and sunset cruises and other back bay activities,” said Weber.

Holiday Adventure Tours can be found at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina (in the marina area) and at Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort and Spa.

“I hope you will have a chance to enjoy everything Holiday has to offer on your next vacation!”
