Not worth the money

You’re up in the air for 5-10 minutes. It’s probably not worth the money you pay. It was very pretty but I wish we were up in the air for longer.

It was a smooth ride up in the air. We especially had a great time when we were dipped in the bay. We definitely would go again if we had more time in the island. The staff was great and fun to talk to.

It was my b first time ever parasailing and I was apprehensive but staff and boat crew were amazing!! I would use your other boat services any day! Thanks for making my first experience so memorable

Great experience but too political
Andrew_R
, Jun 2022
Enjoyed the parasailing. Staff was very friendly and efficient with time. Only reason this is not 5 stars is due to the political affiliation on the parachute and all over the boat. This makes it difficult to share experience on social media. We were not made aware of this political branding prior to booking.

Parasailing was for sure one for the books! It feels so nice in the air and they even give you the option if you want to dip your toes while your in the air or up to your waist! Highly recommended for a bucket list activity! :)
