After visiting several other parasailing groups; this outfit is a well organized & safety concerned company. The staff is very knowledgeable on all activities they offer & makes sure you are comfortable with what your adventure is going to be. All the equipment was top notch & well maintained. Highly recommended & super fun!!!!

I can officially say that I've been parasailing. I can't say, however, that I will every do it again. I am deathly afraid of heights. After much coercing, my friend finally convinced me to join her in parasailing. We got to the spot almost a half hour early, and we felt very welcomed by the girls who checked us in.... More
