    The tour operator has provided the following answers to customers’ questions.
    What should I wear for Parasailing?
    Dress as if you are going to the beach if you want to get wet, otherwise shorts, T-shirts, and sandals.
    Answered May 2021
    Is parasailing scary?
    No, it's actually quite the opposite. Parasailing is very serene and peaceful. Take-offs and landings are slow gentle and controlled making you feel as if you are truly "floating on air".
    Answered May 2021
    Do I need any prior experience to Fly/parasail?
    Absolutely not! If you can sit, you can fly!
    Answered May 2021
    Do I have to get in the water to parasail?
    No - Each parasailor will slowly lift off the flight deck of the boat from a sitting position, a dip in the water is optional and recommended, but take-off and landings is always from the boat.

      Wonderful Parasailing Experience
      We had a wonderful parasailing experience! Captain Marvin and his first mate Smiley Face were very welcoming. They accommodated our pick-up request. The boat was in good condition. They provided clear instructions. The view and flight were amazing! We would definitely book with them again.

      Bio-bay tour: like being in avatar movie
      We had an AMAZING time on the bioluminescence tour with captain Suga Suga Bear and Michael. We were very fortunate for sunny hot weather (that recharges the plankton), no rain and no moon (so as better to view the effects). There were three stops on the 2-hour tour beginning at starfish point then on to jelly fish point but the highlight was the bio-bay. With calm waters in this extra salty bay, the plankton glow with a bluish light when agitated by motion in the water. You are provided with a thin stretch onesie to guard against the small annoyance of mini jelly fish (stink is like a mosquito bite-a bit itchy) then get in the shallow dark water with a snorkel and mask. With your head down the effect you see is like something out of the Avatar movie-each breast stroke stimulates thousands of time bluish flashes in the water. WOW! Just take you time and spread out a bit and maybe circle the boat to the darker side for greatest effect. Mesmerizing! Having been on the island for 5 days doing most everything-this was the best, most memorable experience of our vacation. A MUST do! And be sure to go with Captain Marvin (or sister company Sweet Spot) for their environmental sensibility and fun crew.

      Great experience - Stingray City Tour
      We did the stingray city tour and it was incredible. We were able to start with snorkeling in one area, boated to the stingrays where we got to hold them and feed them, and then finally boated to the barrier reef for more snorkeling. Leo, Mitchell and Polo were fantastic and so much fun!

      Parasailing
      How much is parasailing for a tandem with Capt. Marvin and what hotels can you book it at on Grace Bay? We paid 75.00 each and it was well worth it. Enjoy everyone.

      We went on a snorkeling trip to Stingray City. We booked only 1 day in advance and the cost was $98US for 2.
      They will pick you up from anywhere and drop you off. The tour consisted of 2 stops, 1 to swim with stingrays, and 1 out further to see various undersea life. They provide water and fruit punch but no other food. The stingray stop was for about 10-30 minutes and they allow you to feed, hold and even kiss (for 7-yrs good luck) the stingrays. The water here is waist-deep. No danger. The undersea stop was for about 40 minutes and they provided us with snorkeling mask and flippers. They also make sure everyone is safe and watch out for people who are not strong swimmers since the water is 10-20ft deep. We really enjoyed it and the crew of Mitchel, Richard, and Paulo were entertaining. Well worth the money. Would go again. Thanks guys.

      # stop snorkel adventure
      The crew was friendly, patient, and very knowledgable. They were great!! The 3 stops included sting ray city, coral garden, and the barrier reef. All 3 were awesome and beautiful in their own way. Highly recommend this tour.

      What a blast!
      Incredible…we had a blast. Captain Walter and Smiley Face were the perfect hosts and companions — two hours of parasailing, taking in the island and feeding the iguanas. Perfect trip, we wouldn’t change a thing. We’ll be back next year…!

      Fishing trip
      Our small party were renting a villa and small boat on Rum Point and asked for a Captain to take us to local inshore fishing marks. Our Captain, Daniel, was extremely polite, knowledgeable and good fun. I wold certainly recommend this company and Daniel himself.

      Tops notch experience
      A wonderful experience in every way. Marvin and Bob were professional and friendly and have excellent safety protocol. I can’t recommend them enough!! It was my first time parasailing and I loved every minute of it. We didn’t bring our phone and they used their phone to take some pics and sent them to us on WhatsApp. You can’t go wrong with Captain Marvin! I have nothing but good things to say about the experience and hope to go back. Thank you Marvin and Bob!!

      Short but sweet
      The experience of parasailing was fantastic. The crew was nice and effective, so we were in the air in no time. My only comment is that I wish we would have been in the air for at least half an hour. It felt like in 15 minutes we were just stepping out of the boat. However, I do recommend doing this activity as the scenic views are breathtaking in Turks & Caicos.

      Friendly and Fun
      Both guys were super friendly and had a routine down so no time was wasted. The kids loved being way up high, getting dipped in the water, and then going way back up. Safety and fun were both priorities.

    I booked this trip a month in advance. The communication was good up until the day of our booking. I was sent a picture of the boat to look for. A different one came to the area we were standing but we didn't get on it as it wasn't what we were told. I received a call from the operator saying they had to change it. We had to wait an extra hour and a different company fulfilled our excursion. The communication should've been sent to me in advance of our time slot.

    The ride was very relaxing and calming. The workers were very reassuring & helpful. I would suggest confirming the tour date & time a day before or on the day. All in all I would go again!

    Snorkeling trip with 2 stops. Small boat excursion which was fantastic! Polo took great pictures while everyone was enjoying themselves. Leo and Mitchel did a great job getting us everywhere and keep us safe! Great entertainment from the 3 of them!

    This is a well-run outfit. We selected the 3 stop tour (2 snorkel plus Stingray City). The people at the desk and the bus drivers were very friendly and took good care of us. Captain Artis along with JJ and Fred were the crew and they were outstanding. Friendly, helpful, just made the whole time enjoyable. Even got to see Philip the sea turtle. Stingray City was the best.

    I had a great time on this solo excursion! Our host Keith was a lot of fun as well as the other boat staff. The only thing was that we didn't get to do the starfish seeing as said in the brochure but I still had fun snorkeling and hanging out with the huge stingrays lol

    We did the stingray, snorkeling, and starfish tour at 10:30. For a family of 5 this was the best value. At each stop at least one of the men (Suger, Jimbo, and Polo) on our boat (North Sounder) got into the water with us and would point out things to look for. At Stingray City, they took pictures of everyone with a stingray and at the end, you could purchase the pictures if you wanted. Suger, Jimbo, and Polo were very knowledgeable and were watching out for everyone’s safety, the entire time. If we come back to the Cayman Islands, we will take another trip with Captain Marvin’s.

    Outstanding activity with a beautiful view of the whole island! The boat arrived on time and wasn't crowded. The equipment was in perfect condition and we felt safe all the time. It was a different way to understand the unique landscape of Caicos and the extension of the reef area. If you enjoy heights, this is for you! 😄
