Little too long for our liking

about 9 days ago
We booked the 1.5hr wave runner dolphin tour through Gilligans water sports. I’ll start by saying everyone at Gilligans was very friendly and nice. The problem we had was we took our kids on this tour and didn’t realize how long we would be out in rough choppy water. I had a hard time navigating through the water and was fearful my wave runner was going to flip quite a few times. Our tour ended up going on for 2 hours and 15 mins and my husband and I were completely exhausted by the end, the guide and other people on our tour did not wait for us and at times they were so far ahead we could barely see them! I was too busy trying to pay attention out in the middle of nowhere that I didn’t get to take in the scenery and enjoy myself. Next time, if there is a next time... we will take the wave runners out on our own so we can come back when we want to. I don’t recommend taking young children out on this either, it got pretty rough for us and if we ended up flipping we’d be floating alone not knowing what to do because our guide was long gone!

Best Jet Ski Tour Ever

We got to see tons of wildlife including numerous dolphins and manna rays. A great mix of riding the waves on a jet ski and taking time to slow down and enjoy nature. Will only use Gilligan’s going forward. Our tour guide, Nate, was awesome.

This was so much more fun than I expected! We saw several dolphins and had plenty of time to play on the jet skis.
