We had the most incredible time parasailing wit SPI Excursions, they are AMAZING! My 9 year old was so nervous to do try parasailing but the crew did a fantastic job keeping her calm, explaining everything, and keeping the mood light. We had such an awesome time we immediately booked the banana boat road with them that same day. If you’re thinking of doing any water activity while in SPI I highly recommend SPI Excursions!!!

It was super fun my boyfriend is terrified of heights but loved it! wish it was longer though:( Was in the air for about 10 min. Recommend to take watchers that way you have more time in the air :) since all 6 in our boat were parasailing I believe that’s why it was short. Overall, extremely fun and great service, workers were super friendly and offer to take pictures/videos.
Definitely trying it every time I visit spi now!

I brought my daughter and her boyfriend for an evening parasail at 730pm and it was cooler and not windy. I researched all of the companies on the island and felt this was the safest. There’s a restaurant right there where you check in so if you have a group to feed dinner and get some drinks it’s a great place to eat with a view of the water! They said it was really fun and they even got some pics taken of them by the boat captain!

I couldn't reschedule my parasailing trip. My group had an emergency and had to leave. I called the 888 number found on Google several times that morning and nobody answered so I went in person and I asked to cancel or reschedule but they couldn't because I booked the time. So I paid 180 dollars for nothing. I understand shcheduling is important and they can't waste their time. I do understand that if you cancel last minute you're hurting their business but it was an emergency and some accomodations would have been nice. Maybe a discount on a future trip or something would have made me feel better. But I paid to go parasailing and I couldn't go so I got nothing but disappointment from the experience. Not their fault but my experience was awful. No accomodations no nothing. Just a nice girl with a frowny face saying we can't do anything for you. Pretty messed up experience.

Hi Jose, sorry to hear of your experience. However, you arrived for check in and asked to add an extra passenger. Sorry but we were sold out. I know you said all 3 passengers or nothing but again we have a maximum at which we cannot overbook. I apologize I wasn't aware of any emergency.

We booked a 6:30 pm Parasailing Adventure and really enjoyed it, our first time ever. Bart and José took good care of us, we were the only 2 on the boat, so it was pretty quick. The flight was as advertised, 10 minutes in the air, very gentle and easy. We did the waist-level dunk at the end and they handled this expertly. It was pretty cool to be flown like a kite in Laguna Madre Bay, definitely recommend if you've never gone Parasailing before! Amazing to land gently back on the boat standing up. The whole trip only took about a half hour since we were the only group. Fun also to ride tandem.

Great but quick adventure- Jose was wonderful. Made you feel like you had a friend on the boat. You can do a combo of single, double or triple (up to a max weight). Mom hung at the bar next door and could kinda watch. Took about 30 minutes total.

The rating is accurate for this company. Clean operation. Good attitude from check in to riding on the boat. They took the time to joke with us and make sure we had fun during the whole trip. They also took care of my concern which was safety. Their gear looked to be in very good condition and they did get serious when asking us to move around the boat and get hooked up to the parachute, which I was more than happy to see. The trip was not rushed either, my daughter and I had plenty of time in the air.

Yes Jason safety is our first priority and while we love to laugh and show customers the beautiful South Padre Island by air we do take the operation very seriously and all gear goes through inspection daily before flights start. Thank you for noticing the love and care that is put into the operation. Wonderful review!

I wanted a great 20yr anniversary gift for my wife and they delivered!

This crew was the most experienced crew we have ever used. The other couple on our trip it was their first time and one of them even went through a recent knee surgery! They made it fun for all of us and provided a safe landing for everyone.

One of the crew even took pictures and video for us free of charge and then sent them to us via text within one hour after! The lead driver has done over 10,000s of these and we were just blown away!

If your looking for a trip with fun, safety and a crew that know what their doing, look no further.

We were in SPI in July. Weather was crazy and they cancelled our scheduled parasailing event. Worked with me to reschedule!! Staff was super friendly!! I was a little unsure and they put all my concerns to rest without being pushy. Had a great experience and would highly recommend!!

First time and I have a fear of heights! So, I wanted to conquer this fear. It was amazing ! Loved it! Scared at first but after a few minutes I was enjoying the experience In the air . The downside was, I felt our airtime could had been a few minutes longer, we were the only ones booked for the morning (only two of us) and though the crew was nice I felt being rushed when bought back into the boat. Rushed to take off the gear and be on our way. Seconds later driver of the boat got into his cart and drove off the parking lot. So pretty much confirms my feeling.
Over all I enjoyed the challenge I had set myself to do.
The Parasailing 🪂 was a little costly for a few minutes.
Would I do this again? Absolutely. But I'd find another
place that offers this adventure

HI Anna, glad to hear you enjoyed your trip with just the 2 of you and conquered your fear. Many companies would require minimums in order to conduct a tour. We clearly state the price, trip time and air time on all sites. The captain is welcome to leave seconds, minutes or hours after his conducted parasail trip.
