We took our kids, ages 8 to 13, plus 4 adults parasailing. It was everyone's first trip up and it was an awesome experience. The crew was nice, fun, informative, and made sure everyone had a great ride. The 8 year old was tentative about going up but then wanted to ride the chute all the way back to the... More

In the words of my 6 year-old daughter, "That was EPIC!" We found the entire tidalwave staff to be professional and friendly. In addition, Mark helped to make our banana boat ride something to remember. He paid close attention to the requests of the girls, and made the trip worth every penny, as evidenced by extreme squeals and giggles for... More

Captain Mark took us out on an amazing 3 hour boat ride complete with jet skis and tubing. We saw dolphins up close and the kids loved it!! Mark explained the safety rules and directions so well and made the kids all feel so comfortable! We can't wait to come back again!!

This was my first time on a wave runner and I had the best time even though I was a little nervous because I had never been on one before. The tour gives you plenty of time to ride and see things. While on our tour we had dolphins swimming with us and saw fish jumping all around us. Ethan... More

We rented their 25 foot jet boat for the afternoon. The boat was in excellent condition and they were ready to go on time. We had a captain and a first mate (Mark and Cori). They were wonderful and made our experience fantastic. They were ready to teach us how to do any water sport and were very supportive of... More

My 13 year old son and I went parasailing for the first time in Isle of Palms. We did the 800 foot ride. Michael and Ryan were very good about explaining everything and it really helped to keep us from getting very nervous. My son wears his T-shirt that he received for doing the 800 foot height proudly.
