We had a great time. Staff were freindly. The parasailing was awesome. However, lifejackets were not made available until you went up and returned when you came back down. I would have thought that you would be issued lifejackets before you left and return them...More

My friends thought they would surprise me with this for my birthday. It was amazing. The instructors were so down to earth and really funny, easy going. They play dope music on the boats and the actual parasailing part is magnificent! The views are spectacular!...More

Not very often you come across something that a mum & 13 year old son can do together and both really enjoy the experience. The crew made it a really fun experience the humour & banter between them & the customers was really fun.

Hi Larry, Yes that is our maximum weight but if the conditions are perfect no problems to fly you together. If not then we would just fly you separately which is just as awesome.
