    NO DOLPHINS

    First, I want to say that the staff were so nice, patient and awesome. They went out of their way to make sure everyone was safe and comfortable on the jet skis, and they absolutely did their job. However, if you want to see dolphins, DO NOT go on this tour. This is more of a "receive a boating license and jet ski around" tour. It's cool to ride around, but I went on this tour specifically to get to see dolphins. I specifically chose this tour over others (and over boat tours-which were much cheaper) after reading the following statements on their website: "The dolphins have come to know us and will come right up to you, surfing under your Waverunner / Jet Ski. Our dolphin tours are the best way to get up close and personal with these amazing creatures..... We will take you to Destin’s... read more

    Thanks for posting and sharing your feedback. I'm happy to hear about your experience with the staff, but sorry to hear that the dolphins weren't more playful that day. They are in their wild habitat so unfortunately there is no guarantee of sightings on every trip. There is a 95% chance of dolphin sightings on this tour and the same is true had you booked with another vendor. Fishing trips are similar where there's simply no guarantee of a catch. Some boats come back with a huge catch, whereas others will arrive with very little or even nothing at all. I do hope that we see you again next time and that the dolphins make it up to you! Thanks again for sharing and booking with us! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Worst experience ever!

    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... read more
