Review of Xtreme H2o Destin Crab Island Jet Ski Dolphin Tour

  • Stephanie Destin, FL May 30 2017 08:43am

    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

    Fun experience!

    We had a great time. We got to go fast and see dolphins and explore the area. Our 8 year old was a little scared with the high speeds but said he enjoyed it after we were done.
