Mike and Bryan are very knowledgeable and was a pleasure to sail with. The ride out into the waters was a bit choppy but the weather was perfect that day. While riding out, Mike was able to fit our harnesses and explained everything in a timely and thorough manner. They were able to answer all of my questions to my... More

I've been parasailing before in Cancun and done similar things in Bali but this was the best experience yet. Crystal blue water, nice genuine people, good service, fair price. Can't recommend highly enough!

The experience was great. Kids loved it. The only thing that I can say that was difficult was that they are located in a resort so there are no signs on the street. Once you get in and park you have to go in or around the resort buildings out back to the water and there aren't any signs guiding... More

I took my wife and our 12 year old daughter for first time parasailing. While we had a lot of fear before the day it was all put to rest by the staff. Can't recommend highly enough!

My girlfriend, her daughter and I went parasailing. Not enough time was spent fitting up our four year olds harness. Once we got up there she slid partially out and was freaking out. She was vertical in her harness instead of L with the strap under her thighs. I had to cradle her with one arm under her bum to... More

The day that my daughter and I took a trip was beautiful. The guys working were very professional. It was a fun and exciting ride. The only down side of our trip was the price. After paying $110.00 and tipping the capt. and mate (15 to 20%) it can add up if there are more than a couple people.

Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you had a fun experience parasailing with us! There are definitely cheaper companies in Key Largo that offer the flight at half the time and half the height for half the price. If you are looking for a cheap experience, we definitely recommend one of those companies. More

The 10 minutes parasailing was good. Would have expected more from the photo package for 40USD than a few remote low resolution pics taken from the boat.

Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear that you did not enjoy your photo package. Perhaps you received one of our older SD cards that did not have preloaded photos on them. Also, there weather has been quite poor so I'm sure the mate was struggling a bit with the photos considering the choppy water conditions. Please... More
