A group of 7 of us rented wave runners. I had never done this before. Some of the younger people in our group had to take a boater safety exam before they were able to use the wave runners. Everything was easy to operate, and no obstacles were in the way besides others in your group. Plenty of space to... More

We sent our wife's up while we rode along and watched, filmed and laughed. Be sure to ask the board operator to dip them! Loads of fun. The ladies loved the view up there. Would defiantly do again. The crew were great too

I was very nervous to Parasail, Alex and Charles joked with me to lighten the mood. They weren't busy when we went and had the boat to ourselves, we maybe waited 15 minutes from check-in to loading not the boat. They held good conversations with us. We (from Oklahoma) learned Capitan Charles has never seen snow in person!! It was... More

The Sunset and Dolphin Cruise was incredible. Our captain was very knowledgable about many aspects of sea life and history of the area. We saw at least 30 dolphins. The captain was very nice and made sure we enjoyed the cruise. There was bottled water available for free. The only thing I was disappointed in was the "glass-bottom" boat. This... More

Parasailing was amazing. Not that I saw any of it with my eyes closed. The captain and crew made sure we were safe and had fun.

We rented a wave runner from Key sailing for a little water fun. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We felt comfortable getting on the water after their instructions. We will visit them again when we come back to Pensacola!

My wife and I brought our visitors out to Key Sailing for a 1/2 day on the water. They are from Austin, TX, and had never been on the Pensacola area waters before and we knew we had a lot to show them in such a brief period. We chose the pontoon boat as a great way to see many... More

Just got back from the sunset dolphin cruise and all I can say it first class! Fantastic boat and great captain (charles). We started off with a few dolphins not far past the bridge. We then moved up to some more near the fort. We then headed around the bend into open water ready for the sunset. At this point... More
