I called in and reserved a pontoon boat for a few hours one Saturday, 11:30-1:30. Traffic made us late, and when calling in as a courtesy the staff told us we could have it until 2 pm, no problem. We ended up being much later than that and only got on the water around quarter to 1 pm. Instead of... More

The young man was very gracious while helping my husband and me in and out, of the boat. It was a challenge for all of us. The support Staff who handled... More

We needed an activity for a high energy 11 year old and his teen-aged sister that they could both enjoy. The Parasail/Wave runner adventurefit the bill perfectly. The staff was amazing, suggesting ways to bundle packages, coupons, and retired military discounts (BRAVO-HURAH) Thanks for your support Shark's Cove) The parasail was one of the longest we have seen and the...

First of all my girlfriend and I had stopped at beaches from Ocean City to Rehobeth Beach. Not only was the staff friendly but they were accommodating. We went the first day and the wind was too high for Captain Mark to let us go out. Other places would have taken passengers parasailing with the winds too high. He said... More

This place is NOT as advertised. BE WARNED. You pay a premium price for a "new boat" (per their website), and get a piece of junk. Not to mention their staff and customer service is TERRIBLE. After getting on the boat, trying to make the best of the situation we were a couple miles out and tried to use the... More

I took my brothers parasailing for a birthday gift. I didn't have any trouble getting the time and day I wanted. Captain mark was excellent, and did a great job making everyone's trip enjoyable and safe. And captain Paul, kept everyone entertained, explained how it worked, put all our harnesses and life vests on, and made sure we were safe... More

We booked a last minute parasailing trip for us and for our three kids. We cannot overstate how professional the captain and staff were. Our kids loved it and we got great photos. We are on for next year!!

Tammy (front desk), Paul (first mate on boat), and Captain Mark all did a great job of explaining what would happen on boat and then executing a great time for 2 teenage girls and 2 eleven-year old boys. This was our fourth time using Shark's Cove and had a blast! Highly recommended!
