    Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

    We were able to see dolphins within 10 minutes and there were hundreds!! Our guide (Taylor, if I remember correctly) was great. Took pictures for us with the dolphins and was very knowledgeable! If you are able to budget this on your trip, you will never regret it! This was a memory I will cherish forever! They give you an hour of a guided tour and 30 free time and it was worth every second. If we get the chance to take our kids we definitely will.

    First, I want to say that the staff were so nice, patient and awesome. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable on the jet skis, and they absolutely did their job. However, if you want to see dolphins, DO NOT go on this tour. This is more of a "receive a boating license and jet ski around" tour. It's cool to ride around, but I went on this tour specifically to get to see dolphins. I specifically chose this tour over others (and over boat tours-which were much cheaper) after reading the following statements on their website: "The dolphins have come to know us and will come right up to you, surfing under your Waverunner / Jet Ski. Our dolphin tours are the best way to get up close and personal with these amazing creatures..... We will take you to Destin’s... read more

    Thanks for posting and sharing your feedback. I'm happy to hear about your experience with the staff, but sorry to hear that the dolphins weren't more playful that day. They are in their wild habitat so unfortunately there is no guarantee of sightings on every trip. There is a 95% chance of dolphin sightings on this tour and the same is true had you booked with another vendor. Fishing trips are similar where there's simply no guarantee of a catch. Some boats come back with a huge catch, whereas others will arrive with very little or even nothing at all. I do hope that we see you again next time and that the dolphins make it up to you! Thanks again for sharing and booking with us! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Best adventure ever!!

    This was by far the most fun experience we have had at the beach yet. To see so many dolphins up close and personal was beyond cool. All the staff was helpful and very friendly. We are definitely doing it again.

    What an Experience!

    With a 16 & 20 year old, we figured the wave runners would be fun and the dolphins an added bonus. It was AWESOME! We have seen dolphins before but this was certainly different! They were all around the wave runners and even during our free time we could drive right along side them. Everyone LOVED the whole experience and would certainly do it again. Only way to get closer is to actually swim with them :)

    Great time had by all.

    We had a great time on this excursion. I was a little afraid of taking my 7-year-old in the ocean on a wave runner but once we were out there I realized how much fun she was having and how family friendly the tour was. The water is calm where you start, and as long as you have some knowledge of watercraft and listen to the guides on the operation you are fine. We saw dolphins about 12 feet from us. All the children enjoyed it.

  • Zabrina USA about 5 months ago

    Almost $300 spent and didn't see any dolphins

    Rode around back and forth for 45 minutes and didn't see one dolphin! I paid double the normal hourly rate for NOTHING. I'll never waste money on this again even with a discount.

    Hi Zabrina, While there is about a 95% chance of dolphin sightings on each tour, there are those rare occasions where we simply don't see them. These beautiful animals are in the wild habitat, so there really no way to guarantee sightings. The price you paid for this 1.5 hour tour was $115, which is actually just $5 more than what they charge for just a one hour rental at that same location. I hope you still enjoyed your time out on the waverunner and your visit to Destin! I'm glad you were able to save some money by booking through our site and hope we see you again next time! Best regards, TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Definitely a great company to take a tour with...FUN!

    Probably one of the best jetski values in Destin...We saw so many dolphins, a sea turtle, and even a shark during our free time. We had a blast and your equipment was safe, easy to operate, and in good condition.

    Awesome experience!!

    I got scared on the water since I had my son behind me but Zack took good care of me and took us to a calm bay where I could feel more comfortable on the jet ski. Once we got there, wait for it...Dolphins everywhere!!! They were so close to us and my son LOVED the experience! This was a class act organization and I would do this again and again each time we come to Destin! You can't go wrong with Extreme H2O!!
