Our guide was excellent and made a first time jet skier like me feel very comfortable and safe. There was plenty of time to rip... More

My wife and I had never parasailed before. I assumed that the wind would be rushing by and it would be loud. I was amazed at how peaceful and relaxing it is.

Dave and Alex were absolutely phenomenal! They really made the experience for myself and my group! I had a few people that were nervous about the experience, but they honestly made them feel comfortable and excited about parasailing. They are so knowledgeable and great with their jobs! Safety is their number 1 priority. I HIGHLY recommend Sammy Duvall's to anyone.

Captain Dave and Alex were great. Went parasailing with the family today (9/12/2016) and it was amazing from start to finish. They let me wear the GoPro on my wrist while I was in the air and were both great with our 9 year old girl. Will definitely be going again when we come back to Disney!

We went a tandem 8-10 minute parasail on Sept 6th. Dave was great, pointing out all the sites while we were on the boat and driving the boat while we were up in the air, while Trent kept us safe fitting the harnesses and life jackets and taking photos. As someone who is scared of heights I must say I... More

Parasailing has been something on my 'to do list' for a number of years. The opportunity arose when taking my family on a recent Disney vacation. My three grandchildren, ages 16, 12, and 8 were all up for the experience, so there was no turning back (grandpa wasn't about to bow out in front of three very enthusiastic, pumped children)....

The para sailing offered by Sammy Duvall Watersports was one of the best things I have ever done. The staff was very kind and very professional. I would recommend this to any person who is traveling in the area of Disney World. I plan on doing it again on my next trip to Disney.

Reserved a flight for three of us on Aug. 22, 2016 at 1:30. It was my first flight & it was amazing! I will do it again! Printed out the pictures, they were awful! Most of them were clouds (62 pictures)! There were more pictures of one girl, little for the second and a few of me. Most of mine... More

The boat crew was great and the trip was just awesome. We did a tandem parasail, me and my wife, and loved it. She said she was scared of heights initially but this was easy and you ride into the air slowly. The view of The Magic Kingdom and the surrounding area is great. The time spent sailing was long...
