    Well run but short on time

    Our group (8 people) we pleased with the experience ( the two guys running it were very professional and organized) other than the fact that they filled the boat to capacity (15) and cut everyone's time in the air short. We were supposed to get 10 mins in the air min and that wasn't the case.

    Fun Trip!

    Trip was fun! Definitely more people than we expected on the boat. But, still a good trip.

    Good time but short time in the air.

    The trip was nice. The crew was very nice and did a great job. I wish we where able to stay up in the air longer. 3 of us went at one time and I started the GoPro camera when we left the boat to when we landed on the boat again and the total time was 7min and 52 seconds. Don’t think we will do it again but the kids really enjoyed the experience.

    dolphin sunset cruise

    there was a smoker on the boat. My mom gets migrane headaches cause of cigarrete smoke. We told the captain and he told us (5) to seat in the back of boat, like we were the bad guys. we think smokers should be at the back of boat, since second hand cigarrete smoke has been proven to be harmful. Other than that, trip was great

    Parasailing was great! The only issue we ran into is that for some reason the venue had us down for only two people instead of four, but had charged us for 4 people. I suspect it may have been a communication error between tripshock and the activity venue. A few people had to stay behind because the trip was overbooked as a result. Other than that the crew was nice and friendly. We felt very safe. My kids got a bit motion sick but that was the worst of it.

    Great Experience!

    It is a must try when you are in Destin.Once you are up in the air, everything is a smooth ride and we even saw a few jellyfish and a dolphin. We were all newbies and it was great that we shared that memory together so we decided to add on the pictures. Don't waste your money on paying for them to take the pictures as it was not good quality. Our pictures came out blurry and foggy. Ask them to take a picture with your phone instead or better yet, take a go pro with you.

    Absolute fun!!

    The whole experience was great, the crew, the group on board and being up in the air and just admiring the beautY of the Gulf in Destin!! The only only disappointmentioned I have to mention was the quality of the photos we purchased. Our friends had some great quality photos on their experience in Panama City.

    bad booking, fun event

    I called Gilligan's Watersports the day before we were scheduled to parasail and was told they had a confirmation for us but didn't have us scheduled on a boat. They rescheduled us for the next day (luckily we hadn't schedule on our last day). When we showed up on our rescheduled date, I told them I had filled out the online waivers. They asked for the confirmation emails. I didn't have them because I didn't know I needed them. I will say that completing the waivers on site only took about 2 minutes for our entire family so I wouldn't waste time with the online process again. The crew of our boat was very helpful and made the event fun. My only complaint was that the captain was smoking the entire time. Bottom line is that is was a good parasailing trip, just a bad booking... read more
