This was the first time parasailing. We loved it so much we went up again since we were the last boat out. So beautiful flying over the water and the coastal view was a site to see. Highly recommend doing this.

This was a great and affordable activity. The height you get is FANTASTIC, you feel so free although nerves were a bit on the "high" side in the beginning, the view and scenic view from above is so breathtaking. We even had time to do another run it was that great and the weather was absolutely perfect What was supposed... More

The folks at UFO are so friendly and helpful. I had questions and the office staff were great about answering them without making me feel foolish. The boat crew was terrific. I will definitely do this again. So much fun and amazingly quiet.

My wife, mother-in-law, and myself all parasailed with UFO, and we all thought it was great. Everything happened on time and safely, and the crew was great as well. Overall a great experience. The actual experience of parasailing isn't as adrenaline-inducing as one might think (for my wife and I, at least...my mother in law may disagree), but it still... More

MY wife and I chose to do the tandem 800' flight. The crew was awesome and we felt extremely safe. The equipment was in excellent condition. The views from the sky were amazing and it was neat to fly close to our cruise ship. It is relatively inexpensive and a tour that can be enjoyed by all ages groups. We... More

The crew was VERY kind and put us right at ease. I was terrified and they made it a very enjoyable experience for me. I would definitely recommend this to people as one of the highlights of our trip!!!

Our guides were Brian and Casey and they were a mix of professionalism and humour which enhanced the parasailing.A fun activity, it's wonderfully peaceful up there.

We did a triple, 1200 foot and it was awesome. The youngest left fingerprints in the webbing that they must still be trying to get out. I never noticed any wind while up and no trouble with my sunglasses. The crew was great. This is something I would do again.
