Bought a Groupon for tandem parasail for my husband and my stepdaughter. Never received a call back and was flat out lied too when I tried to book the appointment. I was accused of calling the wrong number when I said I left a message and no one called me back. I was told it was Groupon's fault. They were... More

$95 a person just to be stand by... What's this a monopoly? We made a mistake by not reading the 48 hours reservation policy on Groupon and bought it anyway. The lady on the phone didn't care about us leaving town the next day and stressed their policy. She passed a gentleman (the Boss) and he too was raising his... More

While some may find the owner Wayne slightly rough he is just the kind of guy that my husband and I can relate to. He doesn’t play games or out up with any funny stuff. He has the rules in place so that no one is injured and everyone has the best time ever. We bought a groupon and we... More

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They extra fees do seem like a lot. I purchased a 2 for 1 on Groupon for 82.50 and had to pay 31.50 in tax and gratuity. There is a 48 hr reservation required but I was able to get in without any issue. In the end, it is only 57.00 pp to fly... More

Then i called them up to fix the appointment and they said only 10 AM slots are available. Called them up somedays later and again the same response and this time with... More

Whether you are a tourist or a local, parasailing with Aloha Watersports, at the Harbour Beach Marriott Hotel, is a must do experience. The staff are very safety conscious and took good care of us. The parasail is easy to get into the fitting, and you just sit and relax and let the wind take you up. The view is... More

I read some reviews on tripadvisor before I decided to purchase my groupon. To be safe I called to ask about when I could make a reservation for my and my husband's anniversary; as I figured I could save some money. When I called the girl was extremely rude once I mentioned the groupon. She stated that they didn't have... More

I went parasailing for the first time at age 50. What a wonderful experience. The scenery was breathtaking and awe inspiring. Each staff member that I spoke with was nice and the service was top notch. I found the staff professional and they worked hard to make sure the experience was memorable and fun. I wear prescription glasses and the... More

I found a great deal on Groupon yesterday for parasailing at Aloha Watersports, but I decided to call and make sure there were openings since we have only one day available for the activity. When I called, I was told there were openings. But, when I mentioned Groupon, I was told I needed to make a reservation 24-hrs in advance.... More
