The parasailing tour was absolutely incredible! I can't express enough how much fun it was. The moment that stands out the most was when we spotted dolphins while up in the air. The captain skillfully began to lower us closer to these magnificent creatures, and I can honestly say it was a breathtaking experience in every sense of the word. As we descended towards the dolphins, my heart raced with excitement. Being so close to these graceful creatures in their natural habitat was a dream come true. The clear blue waters sparkled below us, and the sight of the dolphins swimming gracefully alongside our parasail was awe-inspiring. I remember feeling a rush of adrenaline as we gently glided down towards the water's surface, the dolphins still playfully swimming nearby. It was as if time stood still, and for those precious moments, I was part of their world. The sheer beauty and elegance of these creatures left me in awe. This parasailing adventure will forever be etched in my memory as one of the most thrilling and magical experiences of my life. It's not every day you get to soar through the sky and share the ocean with such incredible marine life. I can't thank the captain and the crew enough for making this excursion an unforgettable one. If you're considering a parasailing tour, do it without hesitation – you won't regret it!

I had an amazing time on the parasailing tour! The whole experience was just fantastic. But you know what made it even more special? When those dolphins showed up! It was like a dream come true. The captain, he's a real pro, he started lowering us so we could get really close to those beautiful creatures. I can't even describe how excited and thrilled I was at that moment. It was like a scene from a movie. This tour not only gave me the chance to soar high in the sky but also to get up close and personal with dolphins, and that's something I'll cherish forever. Thank you so much for this incredible experience!

I had an absolutely incredible time on the parasailing tour! It was not just an adventure; it was a memory that will stay with me forever. The whole experience was beyond amazing. Firstly, the staff were exceptionally kind and friendly. They made sure everyone felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire adventure. Their professionalism and enthusiasm added a lot to the experience. And the view! Oh my goodness, the view was simply breathtaking. Soaring high above the sparkling waters, with the wind in my hair, I felt like I was on top of the world. It was a perspective like no other. I can't recommend this parasailing tour enough. It was not only thrilling but also incredibly beautiful and peaceful. It's an experience that I'll cherish forever, and I can't wait to do it again. Thank you for providing such a wonderful adventure!

Surprisingly easy and calm up in the air First time parasailing. The crew was pleasant and made us feel at ease with the new experience. We were only 3 on the boat and we were out and back pretty quickly. Only about 10 minutes up in the air. Nice view, quiet and surprisingly calm. Be aware there’s a $7 fuel surcharge when you arrive at check in as indicated in the email. Overall an experience I would do again!
