This was the highlight of our spring break! It was a beautiful, calm morning so we went out in the gulf for a bit - had a blast. We came back in the bay and saw several pods of dolphins near crab island. One pod was playing with us - swimming under the wave runners.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Jet Ski Dolphin Tour = FUN!
Our group of ten had a blast! We rented four jet skis (3 on 2 jet skis and 2 on 2 jet skies). We had no experience and the intructions we received was excellent. I will definitely plan on doing this again!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Jet skiing Dolphin tour
We had the most incredible time jet skiing and seeing dolphins! We saw at least 30! The crew at Extreme H2O Sports are wonderful. Our guide found dolphins as soon as we went under the bridge. We had a blast riding around in the Gulf! We will definately go again! Thank you for an awesome time!!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

very friendly staff, the weather was not great so no dolphins but it was fun - again weather was bad so the seas were very rough and we could not go out past jetty's - the staff was very safety aware but not overboard where it ruined the fun - high recommend doing itVerified TripShock!

This was great! We took our kiddos out 7 and 11. They loved it. It definitely beats the dolphin boat ride we did last year. It was my first time on a wave runner so it took me a minute to go the hang of it but after I did I loved it! The guys were great and we saw plenty of dolphins and lots of free time.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Waverunner Dolphin Tour...a blast!!
We had a really great time on the waverunner! We saw about 5 dolphins; most of them were within 20 feef of our waverunner. The last 30 minutes was super...we got to take the waverunner out without the guide and "let loose". I highly recommend this excursion for adults and older children.Verified TripShock!
