Review of Xtreme H2o Destin Crab Island Jet Ski Dolphin Tour

  • Shana Lea USA Jun 21 2018 10:07pm

    My two teenage daughters and I went on the dolphin tour this past Monday and it was the worst experience ever!!! There were about 15 jet skis and two or three “guides”. I was so nervous because the water was pretty choppy and having my girls on with me only added to the nerves. I actually felt a little relieved when one of the guides told everyone that there would be a guide in front of the group as well as the very back. He make sure to tell everyone if we needed to, we could wave them down or whatever and they would assist. It started out well but that changed rather quickly. Everyone started to take off and I’m in the back of the group of course. Going slower than most but I thought that would be ok considering what the guide initially told us. I got past the bridge (out of the no wake zone” and go maybe 300 feet before the other jet skiers circle back around and go back towards the direction we just came from. I join the group again and again I’m in the back (not concerning just yet). As we’re going crab island and trying to get through that no wake zone, everyone takes off and leaves me!!! I tried so hard to go faster but every time I did the waves would just push us all over. I’m going like 20 mph tops trying to catch up with what I thought was my group but they just kept getting further and further to wear I couldn’t see them at all. So here I am, a mom on this jet ski with my daughters in the middle of they bay, watching these huge boats pass by me, not even know where the hell to go. I’m shaking so bad that my girls were trying to help calm me and figure out where to go. They were getting upset because we literally were just there, with no one. Finally my daughter points out the bridge in the distance that we think it the one with the no wake zone. I go forward the bridge and THANK GOD it’s crab island. I circled back around and found the place we left from. At this point I’m shaking from fear of being left in the middle of the bay yet so happy to have found our way back. I pull up and the the guys asked what’s going on and I tell them they group left us and the response I got was “Oh no ma’am. I’m so sorry!” And then he proceeded to say “you have some more time, if you want to go back out.”.... I was dumbfounded that the response for leaving not only a customer but a mother with two girls in the gulf was “I’m sorry... you have more time...”. I understand the group was larger than they were used to, but how dare someone pay for a tour and get left. I paid for a dolphin tour and though not seeing dolphins is understandable, not watching over customers and their well-being is disgusting. I would never recommend this!

    Best thing we did in Destin

    Our guide Vladimir was awesome! Everyone at the place was nice and we had a blast. I usually never write reviews but took the time because of how great our experience was.

    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.
