    What an awesome time! Since we booked online, they did send us to the wrong location, but the people there got us straightened out. A very friendly and fun staff.

    Had a great time. I am 45 (and a bit scared of heights) and went with my 15 and 9 year old daughters who also had a great time. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

    Too Much Fun!

    Awesome time was had by myself and my son. Great view from above. The crew was great and took time to show us a school of dolphins on our way back in. Great value and a memorable time. Will do it again when we come back to Destin.

    We ended up with a trip and a half. We headed out but a quick moving storm cancelled our trip for the day. So we headed back the next day. There were 6 of us ranging ages 8, 13, 17, 34, 35 and 57. The staff on the boat were wonderful both days and everyone had a great time. The photo package offered was very inexpensive and worth every penny in memories. If you want to parasail this is the place :)

    Elizabeth, We are sorry we had to reschedule you for weather but thank you for bearing with us and heading out the second day. The weather was even more beautiful and it wasn't as hot! We hope you loved the pictures and will come back next year!

    Gilligan's Watersports (Destin, FL)

    I must give this company high reviews. We used Gilligan's for the Parasailing Adventure. We had a great experience for a Great Price!!! All the staff was friendly and welcoming. Our boat captain and parasailing instructor were AWESOME!!! Definitely would recommend them to others.

    My daughter (9) and I enjoyed it so much. This was a first time for both of us and were a little nervous but, the crew made it so much fun. This was one of the great highlights on our family vacation. Highly recommend!

    Excellent!! Great staff!

    I am always hesitant on who to book with when you do such things. This is a great company! The girls at the desk were friendly and had great customer service skills. Our boat was not overbooked. We took the 9:00 am trip and only had 7 people on it. This was my 9yr old daughters first time. The confidence and friendliness of the crew really put her and I both at ease. Our flight time was great! Thank you so much for an awesome time! It really made our trip!

    The morning trips are always our favorite because you can see so many dolphins and seaturtles and such on the way out to the gulf! The booth girls love their jobs and enjoy meeting and greeting with our area visitors. Thank you for booking with us and please bring your daughter back for her 2nd trip next year!

    This was the first time our family had been parasailing. It was a great experience for all 6 of us; ages 16 and up! The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining while keeping us safe at the same time. We will definitely be back again next year for another ride or two :)
