Didn’t see any dolphins but not their fault. Water was too rough. Otherwise the Waverunner time was a lot of fun. Stephanie from the reservation dept was fun to talk to and a very kind person.

Waverunners bring their own level of fun, but to be able to see and be so close to dolphins is amazing. We were lucky to see a large pod of dolphins at the start of our trip and had a great time ridding through the bay.

This was our first time in Destin for Dolphin tour. Though we (myself and my wife) were not able to see dolphins wave runner ride was awesome. Our guide took us to the various part of the ocean and we are riding in full speed.. Our guide was so awesome. He made sure we are safe. Thank you so much!

Not worth it

I'm only giving it a 3 star because we didn't see any dolphins at all. And we flipped our wave runner over twice. There was a storm coming in that day and the water was bad choppy plus 3 other wave runners flipped over also I'd advise u not to pick the smaller wave runners because they do turn over easily. But we all thought we would be going out atleast into the edge of the ocean you just stay in the destin harbor the whole time. And it takes 30 minutes to get out of the No Wake zone just to start the the ride plus when your finished another 30 minutes just to get back because of the no wake area so your really only out there a hour riding. To me it's not worth $120 I mean yeah it's fun riding on a wave runner but we could have used that $120 for something alot more fun.
