We had so much fun enjoying the incredible views! I was a little nervous at first, but after watching the other couples go up, it was clear the guys knew what they were doing. Great fun, reasonably priced.

First time parasailing, and the experience was amazing. The crew helped us well with instructions and the views were great..from the small islands to even some fish and turtles in the water could be seen even as we were in the air. Would definitely recommend.More
