Tim and Awesome were the best boat crew we could have asked for. They were the reason we had such a great time and WILL be going back. I highly recommend you check these guys out. It was a perfect experience.

Truly HORRIBLE. Don't even waste your time or money. The staff is rude and cancelled our appointment.

My mother surprised me with a trip to go parasailing! Another thing checked off my bucket list! Gabe and Awesome Kevin were GREAT!! The experience was the best! My mother and I were the only Floridians on the boat. We met a couple of guys from Eastern Europe via Seattle, WA. The day and trip and people and the hosts... More

If you are going to rent jet skis, I recommend the dolphin tour with Gilligans. The lead boat takes you out and makes sure you are okay on your jet skis. You can go as fast as you want, but my comfort speed was around 25 mph. The tour guide was totally patient with the slower people. I wasn't expecting... More

We have para sailed with Gilligans, and loved it. This year we decided to try the wave runner. We took one out for two hours. It was awesome. The staff and crew were very nice and polite. They answered any questions that we may have had. We have been on speed boats and fishing boats, but just the wife and... More

Rented a pontoon and went to crab island. We got it for the afternoon for 4 hours. Had a great time. Found lots of hermit crabs and enjoyed a few beers.

We went here because their website said ALL their jet skis are three seaters. We were told that only two people per jet ski, despite what their website says. We went down the street and found another company that has three seaters and had a blast.

Trash everywhere around the surroundings. Boat had tear in canopy and boat was dirty. Parking limited. Our friends had two jet skis that had to be brought back in due to engine light. Reunion rd our outing.

Tim and Kevin were AMAZING!!! They were energetic, fun, and so professional. It was clear that safety was a priority to them and they took the time to explain the process so easily. My daughter was very nervous and they did fantastic at trying to ease her and was so pleasant to her. The staff even took some time to... More
