I live in FW and work out in Pensacola. I have always wanted to go parasailing so of course I thought of the place right next to my job. The experience was amazing from top to bottom. We had a blast.

Key Sailing is a very casual ocean adventure business offering many services. We simply called ahead and asked when to show up for parasailing. There were 6 of us on the boat, everyone got about 15 minutes in the air. Our group was a young crowd and they played load music for us. Probably not everyones cup of tea but... More

These guys were great! We had gone on a dolphin tour at sunset which I highly recommend. Not only were the crew very knowledgeable about finding Dolphins but pointed out points of interest and suggested places to go at night. I highly recommend this company.

Parasailing has been on our vacation to do list for several years, and this vacation we finally took the plunge! Key Sailing was GREAT! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The boat staff were super and the experience was a HIGHLIGHT of the trip! Great view of three bodies of water including the Gulf, cow rays, and even a shark!

My family and I went on a Thursday morning. They were quite busy and the man at the counter had little interest in booking anymore para sailors. He was very short and curt. He told my husband, child and I that we did not weigh enough together to para sail. We were told that there was a minimum of 250... More

Captain Amazing and his deckhand were great. Friendly, courteous service and made the boat ride fun for everyone. We opted for the triple, and the price was as expected for the area. The view was breathtaking, don't miss out!

So we booked a sunset dolphin watching cruse with our 2 kids (both who are under the age of 12) We all loved it, the boat Captain was fantastic! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was awesome and got some great dolphin viewing in. We will most definitely return to this business again!!!
