Crew was awesome! Everyone should do this at least once! Hard to catch them, definitely call a day before. Well worth it!

After everyone had their time parasailing, we rode around looking for dolphins and were lucky enough to have them swim in our wake and play around our boat. Overall it was more of... More

What a great time!! This parasailing experience was awesome. The boat and the equipment are top notch and the captain (Mark) and his mate are very experienced and very safety conscious, felt safe the whole time. What a view, take your camera along.

Had an awesome time parasailing with this crew! They are friendly and extremely professional. The boat and equipment are new, so we had no concerns about safety. Call ahead for appointment as trips are dependent on wind conditions. I called in the morning and was able to go that afternoon. Be sure to bring a camera, they are happy to... More

We went on a parasailing adventure one day. Because we had a great experience, we chose them for our dolphin watch and sunset cruise. Definitely worth MORE than the inexpensive cost. We will be back!

Plan ahead based on weather forecast. Wear a swimsuit or you can wear clothes over top of swimwear. Bring a camera or your phone and the deck mate will take pictures or shoot video for you which was a great help. Mark the captain and his wife who booked the event are the nicest people ever.
