Everyone at Aloha was very attentive. At the desk, Taylor was cheerful and so helpful! Once on the boat, Chris was friendly and made sure everything was safe, very reassuring! I've been parasailing a few times and this was the best experience I've had by far. I highly recommend Aloha.

At first glance this place looks fun, then you talk to someone who works there. These people are not here to make sure you have fun, they have one goal. To get all of your money and they will lie and cheat to do so. I'm absolutely shocked that the Marriott (a great hotel) shares a beach with them. They... More

Went parasailing for the 1st time and had a great time. The staff was extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Even though I was a bit nervous, they were very patient and encouraging. I definitely recommend them for any water sports activities in the fort lauderdale area.

My husband and son rented two WaveRunners from Aloha Watersports. Wayne gave thorough instruction to them both and gave our son the required written test. When they got down to the water, they put on their life vests and another man gave them further instruction. The equipment was beautiful, likely brand new. They had a great time out there! At...

Rented some wave runners while staying at the marriot beach resort in Fort Lauderdale, I'm not sure if this is the only location they have but they seem to be affiliated with the resort and the rental was simple, decent waver runners with a more than ample size area to use them. The staff was very clear about the rules... More

I have a huge fear of heights...and I do mean huge. So when my friends decided that we were all going to go parasailing. I thought they were crazy! However, somehow I let them talk me into it. Upon arrival, I was absolutely nervous. I mean to the point of shaking because I knew what I was about to do.... More

I had never parasailed, my friend had, and we decided to go for it. The entire experience was fantastic. From the signup, to the ride to the boat, to "lift-off", everyone from Aloha that was involved was amazing. From lifting off the front of the boat to the sereneness once we were up, was incredible. So, was "the dip". I... More

My wife and I booked our first parasail adventure with Aloha Watersports. We could not have asked for a better, more fun experience! They have a little hut on the beach that has a certain charm. The staff was nice and friendly. They were professional in a laid back fashion and treated us like we were regulars. Overall a great... More

We rented kayaks, paddleboards, and a sailboat all during our week here. The gear was well maintained and the service fantastic. The sailboat was especially fun. Highly recommended!

When I went online I saw that you can make reservations online and knowing it was spring break I thought they would be busy so I made an online reservation. When I arrive at my scheduled time, the owner told me they don't look at the reservations as it is handled by a third party. Although the website didn't say... More
