As long time Walt Disney World vacationers, we wanted to give some of the perks of being at WDW at try besides spending all day at the parks. I signed up months in advance with a coupon code to save a few dollars for our 19 year old daughter and I to parasail while my wife rode in the boat... More

I went parasailing at Disney through Sammy Duval and had Tim and Trent lead me through the excursion. It was such a great experience and the two were so friendly and helpful. They are very thorough and make you feel safe, overall it was such a memorable time. 10/10 recommend doing this at your next trip!

My teenage boys did this. The both snow board so they wanted to try wake boarding. The guide (Mike?) got my youngest up on his first go! A few more successes before the rain came over so we got a free rescheduled booking for the next day when my other son was up within a few goes and loved it.... More

Parasailing is something I have always wanted to do and I am extremely glad I did it with the sammy duvall team! They are very friendly and very efficient. They are also very safety oriented and make you feel like you're in the best hands. I'm deathly afraid of heights and they soothed my nerves perfectly reassuring me that it... More

The staff was very friendly. I arranged for this for my son graduation present and he had a terrific time, I've never seen him so happy. It was the highlight of this trip to Orlando. This is a must, Nice and clean boat as well. Its worth every dime.

On our recent WDW vacation, I arranged for my 20 year old son and his 21 year old buddy to go on a tandem flight. It was truly the highlight of the vacation! My son had parasailed with Sammy Duvall before. His friend, who was a first time visitor to WDW, had never parasailed anywhere. My son was fine; friend... More
