    Even if...

    Even if we wouldn’t have seen dolphins, we got to see things we usually don’t get to see in our state like jelly fish and ocean fish. Even if we didn’t get to see dolphins, it was nice to get away from the crowds of Destin and have some solitude on a jet ski. With that all being said, we did in fact get to see dolphins. I was pleased with the service.the price was reasonable comparable the other services on the harbor that is offered . My trip was planned for 10 am and because the other family that was going with my group was a bit late, we didn’t get to go out until 10:45. Luckily, we ended up canceling the next thing on our list because we wouldnt have made it in time due to our late start. So please get there 30 minutes early before your scheduled time. You have to do a brief... read more

    Excellent Tour!!

    Our tour guide was amazing and took great pictures and did a great job finding dolphins. Side note..Park at the normal parking by the harborwalk and walk to the booth to check in. There's a real hateful man that charges $20 if you use the parking right by the check in. Harborwalk parking area is free!

    GREAT Time!

    The 4 of us really enjoyed our Jetski Dolphin Tour. We saw dolphins as soon as we headed out. We saw several pods that seemed as if they were putting on a show for us. Our guide was very nice and he even took several photos and videos of us watching the Dolphins play. I highly recommend this tour!

    Great time had by all!

    My family of 4 rented 2 wave runners and had a great time! The guide was nice and friendly and we were able to find dolphins with his help. We even saw a baby dolphin swimming with the mama dolphin! The guide rode around with us for about an hour and the last 1/2 hour was left up to us to go where we wanted to go on our own. It was a blast!
