This was my family’s first time to Destin and first time renting from Gilligans water sports. The crew was so helpful and made the experience great. The boat was in great shape and very clean. We are planning a trip back for spring break and will definitely rent here again. Thank you for making our experience a great one!!

My friends & I rented a pontoon boat during my bachlorette weekend. I was raised in the area & it was great to get on the water & go see my old hangouts. Crab Island is always a must do for newcomers as well. The staff was great & treated us all with courtesy! Good job guys!!

It was off season and the boat we took out was less than par to say the least. The front gate would not stay shut and the metal on it was bent and coming apart. My 4 year old grand son almost sliced his leg on it. The engine sounded like it was on its last leg! The boat barely went. We did not stay out the alloted time for fear we would not get back in. We have been renting boats from Gillian’s for years. Absolutely the worst experience ever, boat wise. The weather and time together were good. I will not leave a google review this time. Thanks for asking.

The gas gauge was broke. The door up front was broke and wouldn't shut. The cover was tore and Flappy and the boat looked old because it wasn't kept up on its maintenance
