    Brandon is a dolphin whisperer!

    Brandon was a great guide. Despite the rough waters he was able to deliver on his promise to show us dolphins. We felt safe and comfortable the whole time. Would highly recommend!

    We got left in the middle of the ocean

    Our tour guide took as soon as we hit the open water and we got left behind from the group due to technical issues with our jet ski, we were trying to keep up with the group and we just couldn’t keep up (my husband and I are both inexperienced with the wave runner, ie; never used one before) luckily we recconized a building and started heading back. When we reached Gillians we met back up with the group. And the tour guide said “man I was lookin for you guys” and “you missed like 5-6 dolfins” nothing else was said about it. So a couple of hillbilly’s from Ohio who just wanted to have a good time got stranded in the open ocean for a hour and half

    Gilligan’s Jet Ski Dolphin Tour

    We did the 2-hr tour that starts at 9 AM. Tour guide was Cody and he did a great job. We saw several dolphins and had time to play around on the jet skis. It was the most favorite part of our vacation. My 19 and 13-year old daughters want their own jet skis now....
