We went on the sunset cruise. It was amazing. The weather made the seas a little rough, so we stayed in the bay. This didn’t make a difference because the sunset view was still incredible and the waters were calm. All of that was great,...More

We had a great sunset cruise. Even saw a dolphin pod with a baby! And a sea turtle swam by. Captain Billy was very accommodating with our daughter and her crutches and broken foot. Was a great trip.

Scooby So glad you enjoyed your flight! But actually most companies say 10-12 min rides but can only give 7-8 min rides. When you have 12-15 passengers like other parasailing boats, rides inevitably end up getting cut. Thank you for choosing us to fly!!

We have Boshamps Restaurant right next door. Unfortunately there is no place to watch parasailing since it is done out away from the beach. I hope this helps!
