Join us and see wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins up close and in their natural habitat from the comfort of your own jet...
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!
Our guide, Nate, was great and we saw lots of dolphins. It was an exciting adventure.
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.

First thing (Nate) our tour guide was awesome. whether you were riding tandem or solo. he made sure everyone was comfortable and safe . We seen dolphins at multiple spots. We got to experience the ocean , dolphins and the trill of wave runners on the Ocean while feeling safe. This was way better than we thought it was going to be. Well worth the price.

Our guide Kyle was great. My nine year and I had so much fun. Seeing dolphins that up close was awesome. Riding jet skis was a blast. We will definitely will do again when we come to Destin again.

Our family decided to do a wave runner dolphin tour for the first time and had a blast doing so. Unfortunately, the dolphins weren’t cooperating with us or were just being shy lol. We had a great tour guide named Nate and he did an excellent job explaining how the wave runners operate along with making sure everyone felt comfortable. He tried his best to find dolphins and kept a great look out for everyone during the tour. We will definitely be back!!!

An Excellent Experience

This was so much fun. The sights were awesome. We saw so many dolphins and they came so close to us without us trying too hard to get close to them. Our tour guide did a great job of leading and keeping the group together while also giving us some room to roam. I highly recommend this activity.
