This was my mom's first time parasailing and the boat crew was awesome! The deck hand managed to get some priceless photos of her reaction! I would definitely use the again. Also, they offer a host of other rentals and activities from snorkeling to pontoon boats!

We booked with Pelican Adventures because of the bogo pricing. The parasailing was amazing! Having been on an excursion with another company the day before I was disappointed with the friendliness and lack of personality of the captain. He was kinda rude to the other worker on the boat. You could tell there was a little tension between them. But... More

I chose Pelican Adventures because of the online coupons. I would go back because of our awesome experience. The parasailing guys are professional and fun. They know what they're doing and my family and I felt very safe. They took some great photos. We've got memories that will last a lifetime.

Coupons on line are great for 7 ppl. Heavy traffic there that we were warned about but the called to see where we were to make sure we were coming and waited for us. Captain G was very friendly and had a Down-to-earth personality. Moses was with another young lady and were helpful. Kids loved shooting guns at other boats.... More

While on vacation I booked a parasailing adventure with Pelican Adventures. I could not have been more pleased. Capt Ron and Jeff were kind and very reassuring. They took time to show us some dolphins that we stumbled upon. We felt safe and the equipment appeared to be well maintainef. Everything was arranged online. Highly recommended.

Took afternoon half-day fishing trip with the family. Crew very friendly and hard working, especially Johnny. He gave clear instructions and was very helpful. Even though we didn't catch a lot of large fish everyone had a good time. Crew kept moving trying to find fish for us and even stayed out longer than scheduled trying to get some fish... More

They literally cancelled the trip fifteen minutes before the arrival time, 6 am. Supposedly the steering cables or something involving the steering was damaged and had been for sometime but pelican adventures booked us anyway and literally waited to 5:45 am the morning of to cancel. Regardless of whether or not they were under the impression they could fix if... More

My family and I were excited to book their party cruise, with most every other offshore excursion being booked due to the 4th of July. We woke up at 5:15, made it to the dock to find no one at the boat! We thought maybe we misunderstood where to meet them to board, so we called their number only to... More
