Wayne, the owner/manager, was SUPER friendly. They offered us free lounge chairs and umbrellas after our parasail and for the duration of our stay in FL. The parasailing staff on the other hand was not so friendly. They were very curt and did not take any interest in us. We went parasailing and got no instructions or safety information about... More

We went to Aloha Watersports at the Marriott hotel and went parasailing. The owner and his family are all working at the office/hut where you register and they were friendly, helpful and answered all the crazy questions being asked of them. They sold water and ice cream to snack on while waiting for your turn and set up chairs and... More

My daughter and her friends (all athletes and good sports) rode the water weenie today and she was almost crying when it was over. The driver seemed determined to go fast and knock them off as many times as possible--despite the fact that they asked him to slow down. Two of the riders had handles that made it painful to...

I rented a Hobie Wave catamaran on the beach two weeks ago. Wayne, the manager was knowledgeable about sailing, practical about weather. The staff were polite and helpful. I would definitely rent from them again.

I don't really understand all the bad reviews on here about Aloha Watersports, though they do seem to be related to misuse of the Groupon. We were full paying customers and had a wonderful time. The Parasailing boat does not come until 11am so we opted to ride the Banana boat. They put an employee on the boat for more... More

Horrible customer service. Very rude. Ridiculous surprise fees. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! Trust me, just save yourself the headache. Parasailing is great but the customer service here tarnishes the experience.

Don't rent stand up Paddleboards from these rude people. Total rip off. These people don't know the first thing about surf & SUP. Find a different place in lauderdale to rent, with people that actually surf and sup:)

I was very hesitant after reading reviews, however I was pleasantly surprised. We booked ahead and arrived on time. We rode a raft from beach to the parasailing boat which was added fun for us. The parasailing was thrilling but also nice and smooth. The views are incredible. We had a fantastic time and so glad we kept our reservation.

It's a $200 event for Not even 15 min they could be nicer with better service. After the ride I asked to view my photos since I just paid $30 for the... More

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
