First time parasailing and it was amazing ! Our guides were great and very informative . I was super nervous but they both did a great job. A little disappointed that the go pro didn't work though !

Absolutely the best way of of touring the HISTORIC Port of Brownsville! A 4 hour tour where one is able to view cargo ships loading and unloading cargo, decommissioned navy vessels being dismantled and oil rigs being repaired. A BONUS this year was the ability to take photographs (strictly prohibited on tours we have taken in the past)! Highlights included... More

The dolphin watch was nice. We saw a bunch of dolphins in Laguna Madre Bay. The ECO part of the tour was so-so. A net was dragged behind the boat for 5-10 minutes or so and a crew member retrieved some of the catch to show the audience. The crew member was not very knowledgeable about the catch. He made...

He was very informative, helpful, and fun! He made the trip the best of the three!!! Parasailing was great, although it is a short trip, but an experience that is unforgettable! The... More

I was supposed to go at 1:30. The weather was not good. They called at 9:30, and said they would go out at 6:00. I agreed, they said they would call if it changed. No call and the weather improved. I showed up at 5:45. They were no where to be found. The phone went to voicemail. I had to... More
