We went to Padre on a family vacation. Even though me and my daughter are afraid of heights, we decided to knock parasailing off our bucket list! And this company didn't disappoint! Both guys were amazing! We felt welcomed and comfortable from start to finish!! This is a MUST!

Not worth the time or money parasailing
Anthony_T
, Jul 2022
I had reserved 2 different time slots to parasail, the morning of parasailing there was too much blame games being played by the parasailing company and Viator. Somehow 1 of my times were cancelled for no reason. My other problem was, I was told the whole parasailing experience was going to be an hour long which is misleading.... The company doesn't tell you they have 2 groups per time scheduled, then the drive was 15mins out, put 1 group in the air for 15 mins then 2nd group 15 mins then drive back in for 15mins....what a waste of time and money.

Hi Anthony, sorry to hear about your experience. Many customer click the book now pay later with Viator. Viator charges your card a day or so before your tour if your card does not go through it is automatically canceled. All we receive on our end is a cancelation email from Viator but it doesn't explain why. We clearly advertise the entire trip to be approx 45 min time in the air is approx 10 min. This is normal for all parasail operators. we take 6 passengers on our boat at a time.

Disrespectful with zero self awareness…
Brent_T
, Jul 2022
Guide was extremely disrespectful from the moment we came in contact with him. From telling my wife to “get the hell on the boat” to telling me several times to “just shut up” and let him take care of getting my kids into their harnesses when I was simply making sure they understood what was being asked of them, this guy was nothing short of a complete jack ass. Unfortunately his inability to recognize his behavior ruined an entire experience that otherwise would have been pretty enjoyable. Remove him from the scenario and this review changes dramatically, but I will personally never use these guys again.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hi Brent thank you for sharing your experience and sorry to hear it was not up to full expectations. Our captain does not speak like that to our customers. However, if someone is speaking over him while giving important instructions he may have sternly told you to keep quiet
