My cousin and I signed up to go parasailing on a Friday afternoon. We could not go at a later time because we had a wedding to attend that evening. When we got to the check in area, we were told the afternoon slot was full so we had to go out at a later time. We explained our situation... More

We went to Padre to celebrate my little brother's graduation. One of his requests was to ride the banana boat. Well, he got about two minutes before the driver made a sharp turn, intentionally dumping the boys. It is very hard to climb back up once you're off. He wasn't able to get back up and the driver thought it... More

Captain Mark Guillot of Parrot Eyes was a great choice for bay fishing. He knows where the fish are and puts you right on top of them. In addition, he is a great communicator and has good people skills. After fishing, the catch was cleaned and some were artfully and deliciously prepared by the Parrot Eyes restaurant to celebrate a... More

My wife and I recently went on the Jet Ski Dolphin Tour. Though we didn't see any dolphins, the guy conducting the tour was very patient with us as me and the other operator as we had never ridden a jet ski. It was a blast until we got to the open bay where the surf was really choppy and... More

Unfortunately, a memorial was taking place and even though we had a girl who waited on us. We did not even get water, so we ordered and left before our order got there.

We took the all the guys from our wedding party and this was everyone's favorite activity of the weekend, how can you not have fun on a jet ski. They take you out in the bay side and turn you loose for 45 minutes good, fast fun. The guide goes out and hangs out in the general area and the... More

I'm so sad that we didn't discover this place until our last night on the island! This place had the BEST beef fajitas, and the VERY BEST guacamole on the island! I will DEFINITELY be going back here on our next visit to the island!

We scheduled to have parasailing at Parrot Eyes. It was very windy the day we went. The staff was very calm and handled a bad situation (the wind picking up) very well. Part of our trip was cancelled and they were very accommodating when rescheduling.
