Testimonials >>>

I had my first parasailing experience at Gilligan's in Destin. I was very afraid. The captain and crew on the boat helped me relax and now I can’t wait to go parasailing again. It was incredible! The crew explained everything in detail and made me feel so at ease. I would recommend this company to everyone. The take off and landing are so smooth, you are truly safe and cared for by professionals. We also enjoyed a wonderful day on a Pontoon boat from Gilligan's. The boat was comfortable and everyone on board really enjoyed the day. We fished and saw dolphins all day. Next year we will be back at Gilligan's to rent a Pontoon boat again on vacation.
