An amazing time!!
, Jun 2021
The 2 crewmen on the boat made sure we experienced a great time and the pics and video they took were AMAZING!! And, it was reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

We were charged a lot more than others and especially a couple that just added the parasailing on the boat. They were charged far less

We only have two prices - one for a standard ride and one for a higher flyer. Perhaps the rides were different.
Worth the wait!
, Jun 2021
At first we did have to wait around for our turn for about an hour. The wait wasn’t too bad. We got to see everyone riding jet skis and riding the the tubes. We have 2 very inpatient boys with us. So they weren’t too excited about the wait. Once we got transferred to our boat to parasail, the real fun began! The 2 gentlemen on the boat were very fun and outgoing! They were great with the kids! Maybe our experience amazing and memorable. Our boys will not stop talking about how much fun they had! Thank you. Well worth the wait.
Exciting, thrilling, unexpected

The wait time was long and it wasnt as expected. We showed up for our appointment had to wait 2 hours on the boat and then finally go. Even though it was long we were able to swim around the boat and got to see a couple of sea turtles. The para sailing part after waiting so so so much fun. Overall the experience was great. The wait time was just unexpected.

Watersports can run behind. It is the reason we operate an activity barge where you can enjoy breathtaking view and of course, an occasional green sea turtle. So glad you have memories of your time with us!
Good experience, but be prepared to wait
, Jun 2021
Really enjoyed the experience but I gave it a 4 because we had to wait a long time to go into the water even though we had an appointment.
A lot of fun

A super fun experience!!

We had a great experience flying at 800 feet in the air. The staff was super nice, and helpful. We had a blast and can’t wait to come again some day.

Ahh so happy you have memories of your visit. We do have the most awesome staff on the planet. Please come again soon!
Good overall
, May 2021
The experience overall was amazing. However, they don’t tell you that you’re about to wait with 20+ other people on a boat with little to no shade depending on what group you’re in. So make sure you come owith a hat and water. And also when you’re paradailing you’re only up in the air for 5 minutes.... I was expecting at least 10-15. It’s not worth the amount being charged that’s why I gave 3 stars but everyone was super nice and helpful and made our experienxe fun! We even met 2 amazing new friends
