Small Group Waverunner Dolphin Tour Departing From Destin Harbor
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.
