Thank you 😊 to all staff @Paradise. We were bless to call a few hours before our scheduled time and talk with a polite person who booked the time. Showed up took the test plus pass and was in a diverse group of ten jet skiers Who were all also considerate and fun to jet ski with. Mat and our other instructor gave excellent instructions and took us out 3miles out towards 90 bridge. Us three together on our jet feel off the jet ski. It was definitely worth the time and money spent jet skiing. Safety is their priority! Definitely fun! Looking forward to another adventure at Paradise!

My family and I had an amazing time parasailing with the team at Paraside Watersports. We were taken on boat by Lucas and Kevin who were both incredibly nice and informative. The two created a very fun experience that we will never forget. Lucas especially would make jokes that helped calm our nerves and feel more excited to go up into the air. Overall, the experience was exceptional and I would definitely recommend booking a watersport with Paradise Watersports, especially parasailing.

The workers were excellent and delivered great customer service. One family member decided to join us at the last minute, and they found a way to fit him in with us despite it being full. The workers made us feel comfortable out on the water and were extremely knowledgeable about everything. The riding area is humungous and plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing without other rental companies and mini islands. I never leave reviews for places and felt the need to leave a positive one for here. I highly recommend. And they have coupons and are affordable!

Made reservations for a party of 8 (2 children under 5) for jet skis and parasailing combo.
When we arrived we signed all papers and We were guided out in the water one of our jets skis was broken and when we told employee on the water he said “they all do that” it very difficult to steer and alarm going off the entire time. When it came to parasailing we had to forfeit one rider to stay back to watch the 2 children under 5 as they were not allowed on the boat which we were not aware of. When we asked for a refund for the one rider They said they had a 2 hour cancellation and denied us a refund. This all happened between jet ski and then parasail knowing we had small children. They were very unprofessional When handling this I would not recommend this Watersport facility. Two thumbs down 👎 👎

I have been jetskiing many times with paradise watersports. This by far was the worst experience I have ever had and will probably never return. First off, the check in was smooth but the girl helping had an attitude which occurred prior to even greeting us when she was on the phone with another customer booking them. She seemed annoyed with her job. Then the jetski I personally had was broken. Mirror broken, start button broken with no instruction on how to start it since there was there was no red button, side of jetski broken off too. Getting to the area where we were allowed to actually go fast took 30 minutes because of others booked during the time slot so we only had a few minutes to even jet ski. Then coming back more complications since others did not keep up. Had absolutely no fun since majority of my hour was going half speed if that. Waste of money for 2 jetskis for one hour. Will find a place that does a better job of managing customers and won't waste my time or money. Then when you complain all they say is "that's why we tell everyone to go fast" Telling people to go fast and making sure they do it are 2 different things. Maybe figure out who knows how to ride and who don't so time isn't so wasted.

The two gentlemen who manned the boat and parasail equipment were very knowledgeable and kept things moving smoothly. My granddaughters parasailed first and had a ball in the air as well as the dip in the water at the end. I can’t say the guys were that talkative but they did their job and no complaints. A pleasant boat ride even if a little rough sometimes and an enjoyable experience.

Start timing once out to the canal And able to ride. Paid $375 to free ride for about 20 min tops. Booked with competitors few weeks ago and was great. Unfortunately, they were booked for today.

So we went jet skiing yesterday 8/23! It was our first time and it was a great time! Incredibly exhilarating! My reasoning for not giving 5 stars is because of the “lifeguard” who took us out to the area to play. He was not great at making sure everyone Could hear him and knowing what the plan is/was. There were many people who were confused and actually got
Lost. On our way out to the play area there were 4 of us who weren’t really sure what was happening bc it seemed like he took off to go after someone who left before he said it was time. He then came
And got us and was completely annoyed that we weren’t going fast enough!! We had zero clue of what was happening! He said “are you guys not comfortable going fast or what?” Well first of all
It was all of our first time. Second there was an extreme lack of communication. When we made it to the spot he was still annoyed. On our way back he said “those of you who know youll be going fast come behind me!” And he was gone! We were all in line following behind when we ended up with a gap in between because a boat pulled out in front of the rest of us so obviously we had to stop to avoid the boat. When we started moving again, the front half of the group was gone! The rest of us were trying
To figure out where the return point was. There were at least 6 jet skis left behind to figure it out on their own. Two of them got stuck in a sandbar. Point being maybe you should have someone who cares a little less about speed and a little more about getting ppl back and forth safely. Maybe you need an escort in the front and an escort in the back. And then to say at the end that he works off of tips? Maybe the behavior and delivery should’ve been a bit more respectful.

Went out today parasailing with my 6 and 8 yo old children. First time for all three of us. Great experience for all. We were able to go up as a group of 3. My kids loved it. The captain was accommodating to our “no dip” request which was much appreciated . I would recommend this for anyone looking for a fun experience in Ocean City. Only con: they don’t take coupons from your phone so make sure you print them ahead of time!

DO NOT USE THEM, YOU WILL REGRET!!!!!!We had many issues with the service experienced and safety protocols. During our Jet Ski ride, our motor flipped over and we were left in the water awaiting help. Similarly, we felt the instructor did not act in a timely manner and jeopardize our safety with his instructions.

After, our motor flipped in the water, the instructor was no where around to aid us. A family on a boat assisted us to safety. Meanwhile, the instructor came by and said he had to tend to the other party members and not us. Even though we were in the water needing help. Our main issue is the lack of empathy from your staff about the issue , the instructors negligence and the emergency safety protocols. This experience was the worst thus far. This is our second time purchasing here and it will be our last.
