Our family did the 1.5 hour dolphin tour with Holiday Water Sports guide Arlin and had the most fun ever on jet skis. The entire staff was extremely friendly and informative. Arlin makes sure everyone is not only having fun but is comfortable riding the skis. When we saw the dolphins they actually swam right next to us as we idled along. Will definitely be heading back and doing the tour for sure.

My wife & I did the waver runner dolphin tour and had a blast! Thought it would be fun but the staff and tour guide, Arlin, make it a truly memorable 1.5hr. We saw 8 dolphin in the back bay and some were 1ft away. Highly recommended!

Thanks guys!

After all of the positive reviews, 6 of us signed up for the 90 min Dolphin Tour. This was the first week of april, 2014. Cost totaled about $146 after tax and additional gas fee per wave runner with two riders per craft. Going during the middle of the week we had no problem reserving three wave runners the day before. Although these were three seaters, I would not recommend more than two riders per wave runner. Newer machines in great condition. I would also recommend going earlier in the day as the water is calmer and the dolphins are reported to be more active. We had an amazing time. Weather and water were amazing. Spent time in the Gulf and in a few bays and zipping through estuaries among the mangroves. We were able to see a number of manatees and numerous dolphins. Countless birds. Probably traveled 25+ miles. I could not rate this excursion any higher. Money well spent and was one of the most memorable parts of our entire vacation. Jake was our guide who was great and knowledgeable.

This trip is completely worth your time and money. We took the morning trip and saw dolphin and manatee come right near our jet skis. You stop and float a little to enjoy these encounters. The trip through the bay was smooth allowing us to really move through the waters. Lots of great scenery too.

As a first timer on a wave runner, the guys at the holiday water sports associate with the Pink Shell resort made it easy and safe. That doesn't mean we didn't go fast and get to take some really fun and scenic routes through river channels and around the islands. Dolphins are my favorite animal, and Arlin, our very nice and experienced guide, made sure that we got a chance to get up close and personal with the dolphins. We made an attempt to see the manatees and alligators, but the water was a little high and cold today so no luck there. Our guide did make sure that we got a chance to see everything we wanted and more. It was very informative and exciting. The staff seems to be dedicated to giving every individual customer a great experience and a safe, comfortable one too. Definitely would recommend this!
