    Family fun on Waverunners

    Great location on the Bay and not very far from the Gulf and Crab Island. Waver runners are in great condition and can go fast. Guides were excellent! They made sure that everyone in the group was safe and having a great time. Great time for all of the family! We didn'the see any dolphins. However, this was the same for other activities with other companies. The dolphins do not seem to be very visible the past few days.

    Scary but can be fun!

    Overall, if you stay in the bay, you will be fine. And I read that they will not be taking us into the Gulf, but he did. If this is your first time and a female, stay in the bay and do not follow the group out!! It is VERY hard to keep the runner steady and you need a lot of strength. We went under the bridge and into the Gulf and almost fell off multiple times, water going over our heads and dangerous wavy areas. If you are not experienced, I do not recommend going on these. Once I turned around and went back and staying in the bay (much calmer water) I was able to practice and go faster. Overall it would have been better if I had known about the death trap I would not have gone out that far, but I still dont think I would do this again as it is very scary to go out.

    Stephanie, thanks for the feedback. Since there are several other waverunner dolphin tours in the area our guides want to provide a better experience for our customers and have started doing tours in the Gulf as well as the bay areas. We're sorry this information wasn't reflected in our listing so we are having Tripshock update that and make their booking agents aware. We're sorry you had some issues following your tour group out into the Gulf but we felt the conditions were fine that day. Our guides did not have any complaints or hear any objections from customers while on the tour or on the dock afterwards. We wish you had notified one of them during or after your tour. We take customer feedback seriously and will be discussing your review with our staff. Thank you. Mgr

    Xtreme H2o Destin Crab Island Waverunner Dolphin Tour

    Our guide is extremely nice. He came back to look for us when we were too far behind from our group. I just wish we had 2 guides instead of one. That way, when we fell behind, he didn't have to rush back and forward between us the the group.

    We saw several dolphins but not very active.

    We got to see plenty of dolphin but they were not active! I don't know if it was all the boats and wave runners gathering around them or if it was the ocean was very choppy from storms that morning. ... read more

    Amazing, memorable way to see dolpins!

    We highly recommend this dolphin tour. We had a great time! We saw dolphin as soon as we hit the water. They swam next to our Waverunner jumping out of the water, so close you could almost touch them. We've done the glass bottom boat, and dolphin cruises in the years past and this was by far our favorite way to see the dolphins. It was an amazing experience for our family. Our children were totally loving it! This was a trip they will never forget. Our guide "Bobby" was awesome. After playing with the dolphins we were able to have some free time to play on the Waverunners. Worth every penny!
