We showed up on a Friday to go parasailing - knowing nothing about Fort Lauderdale or the parasailing companies there. The wind was changing and a storm was coming in but we thought we'd check with Aloha Watersports anyway to see if we could fly. Instead of hurrying us out for a quick ride, Wayne wanted to err on the... More

Owner, Wayne Mascola, and staff ensured that our experience at Aloha was nothing less than incredible! The safety and well-being of the Aloha customers, alongside guaranteeing an amazing experience, is their top priority. After our first day of parasailing, boogie boarding, and riding a banana boat, we had to go back the following day for another great adventure of water... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Water Sport provider.

I will personally address this issue with the Aloha Management, and make sure that this does not happen again. Our goal... More

I bought groupon for parasailing for two people. I paid 75$ and when I got there they charge me 31.50 for tax and gratuity. I understand tax, but tip before you even experience anything? So I paid 106.50$ for groupon ( their regular price is 150$) and there is nothing about it in fine print. I would leave tip to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our water sport service. I am sorry that you were surprised about the additional amount for taxes and service charges. The Groupons coupons do state on it that the service charges and the taxes are not included. The 15% collected by Aloha goes back to the boat crew, but I completely understand... More

My friend and I are Michiganders and came to Fort Lauderdale for a relaxing get away. Our first actual day there, we planned a trip to go parasailing. Her and I purchased the Groupon and had no problems. They didn't require a print out, that was also convenient. In spite of a good deal on Groupon, they charge a one-time... More

We had the most pleasant and wonderful experience at Aloha Watersports. Everyone was so pleasant and safety conscious. The equipment was clean and in great condition. They were so accommodating and gracious. I highly recommend this place and will tell everyone to patronize this place when in Ft Lauderdale!

I recently bought a groupon for parasailing. I live in ft Lauderdale and attempted to schedule an appointment twice. We were cancelled on both times. First time for "boat issues" and second time for wind issues. The groupon requires a 24 hr reservation. The second time of being cancelled on, I asked the owner if he would waive this requirement...

Saturday I took my young daughter and son to go jet skiing and go on the banana boat. We all had an amazing blast. The owner and the employees were professional bull knowledgeable well experienced and super nice people to deal with. If you're in the Fort Lauderdale area it is the thing you must do. My seven-year-old son was... More

We purchased a Groupon for this outfit, I believe it was $75 for the two of us. We called to make reservations for my youngest daughter's birthday, but apparently their systems are so archaic that they cannot take reservations more than a week in advance. Also the owner (the male) that answers the phone is grumpy as hell and not... More

I made a reservation on Aloha Watersports website on Thursday for Saturday at noon. Never got a response. I checked my email Friday night when we arrived in Fort Lauderdale still no response....
