We visited Parrot Eyes the second week in July 2014. We took the 1.5 hour jet ski tour to find the dolphins. We had two adults, and two teenagers. None of us had ever been on a jet ski before. We had a total blast. The guide took us all over the area. Sometimes he went a little fast for... More

disorganized, in water activities (fishing and parasailing) unprofessional in all regards. captains? employees? focused hitting on girls rather than focusing on safety and customer service. Food at the restaurant was mediocre at best. There are definitely better places to go.

We paid for four tickets to snorkel costing $130. They take us to a dock about a quarter mile away from Parrot Eyes to a wooden dock in the water where they start the parasail from.

We bought Action 4 certificates for a half hour jet ski ride. My buddy called Parrot Eyes before buying his coupon to see what we would receive for our $40.00. He was told we would get a double passenger jet ski for one half hour for the $40.00. When we get there, we are told we have to pay more... More

Inquired of jet ski rental rates in advance over the phone, but once there, it was about $6 more. The registration clerk loudly and rudely asked my husband if he had a reservation and then answered a phone call even though my husband and I had been standing there in front of him, and did not bother being friendly at...
