My husband and I have never been parasailing and always wanted to try it. We chose Sun Dogs based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did! Cari (sorry if I spelled your name wrong) was awesome and even spent extra time after our ride stopping the boat so we could literally almost touch a group... More

Based on reviews of others, we selected Sun Dogs as our first choice for parasailing in Destin. It lived up to and exceeded our expectations… They limited participants on the boat to six people so you don't send all day on the water and definitely took you higher than other boats. The young lady we booked with was also the... More

This was our first time parasailing so I did my research before we picked a place and we chose Sun Dogs since they are the top rated parasail company on Tripadvisor but also because they only take 6 people on the boat. There are so many parasailing companies in Destin and all of them carry over twice as many folks... More

My son and I both went parasailing for the first time together with SunDogs. The crew was nice and did want everyone to have a good time. However, it was run very business like so it wasn't overly friendly. I would have liked someone to volunteer to take pictures for us since both of us had our camera phones but... More

Thanks for flying with Sun Dogs! We try our hardest to be friendly AND businesslike so I'm sorry that we weren't "overly" friendly. Next time we'll try harder. Also, we are the only company that openly advertises and encourages people to bring their own cameras or phones so the crew can take pics for them. We do not try and... More

The experience was remarkable! We all felt like we were the only ones taking the Sun Dog's flight on the sunny, slightly windy day in the gulf! The crew was well trained, funny, and made this experience so personal and safe...we needed that, being from the middle of the USA and never having been para-sailing before!! This is the Company...

My family flies with Sundogs every time we come to Destin for the past 4 years and every time it is awesome! I read the last review and find it really hard to believe. Everytime we're on the boat with Sundogs, the crew goes out of their way to make sure everyone is having a good time. And if anyone... More

Our teenage kids did the parasailing and found that since we weren't with them the people running the organization did not pay attention to them and essentially they felt ignored and overshadowed by the other family that was with them. A far cry from the great help we got from the lady in the hut that runs the bookings, she... More

Whoa! That is the first bad review we've had in years! I really wish you would have said something when you got off the boat, I would have done anything to correct the problem. My husband is the Captain and Vince has been with us for years so I know they aren't concerned with getting tips. Vince knows if they... More

My daughter and two friends of ours went parasailing with sun dogs! They are very experienced and only take 6 flyers at a time! My son didn't want to parasail but was able to go and watch!! It was a life long memory! The only downside is that if there is room on the boat for spectators you have to... More

How cute! My kids loved the smiley face parasail! It was a gorgeous view, you could see the entire city of destin as if you were a bird. 5-600 feet is safest and they take you 500. Going above that is dangerous.

Hands down one of the best experiences of my life. Sun Dogs Parasailing had an awesome bunch working for them. The small boat that took us out first went the extra mile to find dolphins in the water so we could experience that. The mates on the boat were very friendly and hilarious and made the experience fun. Sun Dogs... More
