We found this very reasonably priced for a couple to go parasailing. I didn't realise I was too light to go up by myself so had to convince my partner to come with me. He is glad that he did! One suggestion though, take a GoPro! The staff are busy putting on harnesses for the next people and, obviously, steering... More

Had a half day morning fishing tour cancelled at late notice due to low numbers, not ideal but understandable, rearranged day schedule with family booked to go on a 30 min jetboat ride same day in the afternoon, turned up at 230pm to be told cancelled due to low numbers, no phone call, no mention of minimum numbers on the...

My husband & I went parasailing for our first ever time, WOW. It literally felt like we were floating, smoother than I imagined. It was wonderful to float around & point out places we have visited or been too. It did take us 3 days trying due to weather cancellations, but definitely worth the wait! I couldn't speak more highly... More

My wife and daughter (17) went parasailing; 1st time for my daughter. They loved it, anyone can do it; it is great fun. It was a pity that we couldn't go with to watch, but the boat is small and loaded to capacity with paying customers, so, I guess, understandable. Advanced booking is a must; we were very lucky to...

We went parasailing and it was amazing. The 2 guys on the boat were really friendly and helpful and the parasailing was awesome. Would definitely recommend

They cancelled our fishing trip with one hours notice due to lack of numbers. Every other morning was booked out. This was the second time it had happen to us. Don't book with these people until you do everything else you want to do on the island. When they cancel at short notice you don't have time to rebook other... More

Hi Peter, We are sincerely sorry that you felt this way when your fishing trip was cancelled. As we are a small family business, we have minimum numbers which we are required to meet before being able to confirm that a trip is going ahead. We try to keep everyone happy by letting them know as soon as possible if... More

Wonderful staff and great lunch provided. All round great time for all ages; highly recommended. We brought our 16 and 11 year old sons and we all loved it although it was the coldest and windiest day they had on the water in three months!

We took the half day trip to Chalkies and Whitehaven on the Reef Ryder and even though the weather was pretty average (very windy and high seas) our captain was very competent in his boat handling trying to avoid the roughest sections and getting us to our destinations as quickly and safely as possible. The snorkelling at chalkies was a... More

My wife and kids had a great time on the parasailing ride and riding the tubes behind the ski boat. Bookings essential as they were quite busy when we were there. The tube rides weren't overly long (so the kids thought) but the parasailing was very good. Pricy (but everything on Hamilton Island seems to be...) but definitely worth the... More

My partner and I went tandem parasailing in November. When booking the trip over the phone previously, I found one of the more mature woman to be rather rude, but maybe she was just having a stressful day,although I'd rather a polite phone conversation. That aside it was a lovely day and the guys that took us out were very... More
