    First time Parasailing

    This was my first time to parasail. The crew did a great job of making us feel at ease. They were professional and knew what they were doing. My granddaughter and I really enjoyed the experience. I would highly recommend Destin Parasailing Adventure.

    Teenage Boys LOVED it!!

    Our 3 teenage boys had a blast! Troy and Travis were great and did a great job explaining everything. We did the picture package and got about 32 pictures and all were clear. I think $20 is a bit steep for the pictures but memories are priceless so I would buy them again. I highly recommend Gilligans for a fun time. They kept things rolling like clock work and never made us feel uncomfortable. Go ahead, JUST DO IT!

    Great time!

    The staff and crew of Gilligans were awesome! Parasailing was amazing! They even stopped to give us a "mini dolphin tour" as we spotted some dolphins on the way back to the dock. Will definitely be trying this again next time we are in Destin!
