We did the parasailing had a blast! Everyone from office staff to van driver to photographer and guides were down to earth and professional. My wife unfortunately was in Cape Cod Hospital getting her appendix taken out and Dad had to come up with a fun filled time for our two kids...The owner Mike could NOT have been more of a professional and a complete gentlemen. He actually drove the boat and explained all the safety precautions and what we could expect. He completely assured all of our nerves about being "newbies" doing this..The smiles, laughter and joy our kids had while Mom was in the hospital was a total memory maker for a lifetime. We had great weather and the views were just gorgeous. Just an awesome experience. We also ended up going on jet skis and because of Mike, Josie and Braxton, it created a family memory of a lifetime. We are definitely going back and this time my wife can enjoy the same experiences that I was so lucky to have made due to Mike the owner and his staff. They were all friendly, approachable and professional. While not a cheap day, it was the highlight of our week and memories with family are not only worth every penny but priceless..I would highly recommend Dennis Parasail & Jet Ski for a fun filled time on the water or in the air with the family!

Fun time; great weather; nice staff. Strongly disagree with company's policy that prohibits cell phone use on the boat for any photos. Guys on the boat would get much better tips if they could use passengers' phones to take photos or allow passengers to take photos for each other (what I've done every other time I've been parasailing). For what each person pays, plus tips, it seems rather excessive to charge another $45 plus tax for photos that frankly were not as nice as I've gotten with my personal cell phone on other trips.

We are glad you had a fun time and thanks for the shout out for our staff. We used to allow cell phones and people could choose to take their own pictures or buy the ones we take. However, we had numerous incidences where people were distracted by their phone and safety became an issue. Safety is our #1 priority so unfortunately we had to ask people not to use them. More and more tour companies are having to restrict the use of phones due to injuries and safety concerns. We do state this on our website and also in the booking confirmation email. We appreciate you coming out with us and hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.

We rented Jet Skis while on vacation and had a blast! Everyone from office staff to van driver to guides were professional and enthusiastic. We were a group of 6 with one double (my 14 year old on the back of my ski) and various skill and adventure levels. The emphasis from the start of the experience was on safety from the time of making reservations on the phone, signing waivers and during training. Two guides were with us for the whole hour but gave us plenty of freedom to run and play! Matt, Jack, Drew and Tyler are the names I remember but there were many others in the office and helping out who were friendly approachable and professional. When I called to make reservations, the cancellation policy was emphasized and made quite clear. While not a cheap day, it was the highlight of our week and I would definitely recommend Dennis Parasail & Jet Ski!

Nice experience. But would never do parasail at this place ever again. Don’t get fooled by the driver. At the beginning of the ride he says when you 30 sec out put your arms up and down if you wanna go extra high ($49 a person.) Few kids went before me and they never put there arms up and down. When it was my turn he just asked “wanna go that high to?” I was like sure why not if he’s asking and let other kids go that high why not do it. When we got back to shore the lady came up and said “so want us to charge on same card?” And we were confused and she said we did the “extra high one” when we didn’t give any signal he just asked us. She called the driver which I think was the “owner” and I said my point all he said back “your lyin” and turned back haha. So if anyone wants to go “high” make sure you ask him and don’t fall into his words. Would not recommend paying $50 just for extra min.

My kids had an absolute blast and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we felt completely nickel and dimed on the following:
~ They do not inform you anywhere on the waivers (there are two (1) for legal liability and (2) which is for them to be able to use your photos royalty free and in any advertisement they want. THEY DO NOT TELL you that you can't use your own camera or even cell phone to take pictures until you are on the boat. This applies to "observers"
~ They do not inform you that if you want to go higher then 800 ft you have to pay additional.
~ There is a fuel surcharge that is not disclosed which is 18% openly but is in the final bill (under Taxes and Fees).

Thank you Jeffrey for booking with us and taking the time to write a review. We are so glad that your children had a blast. We are all about creating memories. Regarding liability waivers, all guest are required to sign them, while the photo release is in place because we respect people's privacy. Since we share people's experience, be it on social or on our website, as a way to showcase what the experience is like, we do not want to post photos if a guest is not comfortable with it, for what ever reason. It is completely optional. Our policy on recording devices is clearly stated on our website and in the booking confirmation emailed to the person who made the booking. Unfortunately, we have had too many safety issues/injuries on both parasail rides and jet ski trips stemming from cell phone use. Because safety is our number one priority we have had to restrict the use of them. Most parasail rides across the country have a max height allowance of 600-800 ft. due to state regulations, so these are considered standard rides. In this state, we are allowed to go higher and our boat and equipment are set up to do just that. There are only select captain's who will fly people higher. We have captains with training to do so. It is additional cost for line, training, and flight time. It is completely optional and is a ride that provides something different for people who have gone before or people looking for a flight of a lifetime. The fuel surcharge is disclosed during the pricing. For training purposes we record all calls. We did review the phone calls. The one call that was made about jet skiing, prices and surcharge were explained. The six calls that were made about parasailing, pricing was never requested or discussed which is rare. Trips times and trying to book around another appointment you already had was discussed in detail. We apologize that pricing was not discussed, as we were trying to do our best to accommodate your needs to book you ASAP as well as other people calling to book. Again, we are glad your children had fun and thank you for taking the time to write a review so other people can learn more about our trips.

Going here for the first time was an amazing experience! Everyone was nice, pictures were taken by our tour guide and he was extremely nice to us. Over all I would love to go again.

Only downfall was that I was charged an extra $40 for changing the time because there were two different locations and I thought it was the closer one but it was the farther away one.

Awful experience, terrible staff. Drove 45 minutes with an excited ten year old only to be told by the man/child laying on the counter that he called and talked to me and told me I was refunded. The trip was cancelled due to high wind, supposedly.He didn't call me. Ever. He did not speak to me. Most importantly, he did not refund the money. The blonde woman immediately got defensive and kept pointing at my phone number saying isn't that you?! As though somehow pointing at my phone number would make it true. No one said, gee, sorry, it must have been a mix up, instead, the blonde seemed like she actually wanted to fight me. Seems like she's bullied many customers. My credit card is still charged, I will have to fight this with the credit card company now. Left with a very upset little boy.

We wish we would to be able to post the actual phone calls and video from office cameras to show the public what actually happened. Please see other reviews from customers who book and have real experiences.

Squeezing people in a van and people allowed in your vans without a mask during this deadly COVID pandemic is dangerous and unforgivable.
You have to correct this or be shut down by the state. You CAN insist that anyone cannot go into your vans without a mask. If you have to rent another van to maintain
social distancing which is currently the law, then do it. This is the only way to keep the virus count down. Does this company want it's name pasted all over the national news as one that is the cause of another cluster of cases?
Follow the COVID rules or be reported to every local and state health and safety department. I left after seeing the operating conditions.

We apologize that was your experience. Safety is important to us and we do require masks in the van. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. For parasailing we have people go directly to the dock and park. On busy weekends, we do rent another van to shuttle. If jetskiing, we do shuttle to the harbor because there is no public parking. We ask everyone to please wear a mask. If people are not comfortable in the van, you can drive yourself to the dock and park at the cafe. If requested, we also have a designated car that can shuttle people down, for those people who are high-risk or not comfortable taking the van. We require all people and staff to wear masks. We also have signs in the van posting the requirement. If someone takes their mask off and we see it, we ask for them to wear it. However, as the driver is driving, and someone takes off their mask, they don't always catch it. We also require masks in the office. We do not require masks on the jet ski or boat. They are both outside. If you are reading this, please do your part while around other guests and wear a mask while close to people and in transit.

Was told using your cell phone WAS AGAINST INSURANCE REGULATIONS so they can sell u a $45.00 package of their own, so they have no problem with customers wearing no life vest but it’s a huge insurance risk to take out a cell phone. Huge lie !!! When I asked them to show me such a document they said they don’t have one and even if they did they would not show me anyway, I’m not against the ability to make money as I understand it’s a short season but to blatantly lie to customers is unacceptable. When I asked for a refund as we have no photo memories, they said no of course and when I said I would pursue it in court and social media the owner quickly referred me to his lawyer. The fact that they have a lawyer ready to go says it all. Save your money and go elsewhere, stay tuned for court results! As well as Dennis town hall. Very upsetting for a four minute ride for almost $400

We expect 1% of our reviews to read like this. Perhaps it is because when people demand money back, and hold "bad reviews" over businesses to extort money back out of the business and the business renders services and refuses to give a refund, they blast bad reviews on numerous platforms. Please visit other reviews here and on Google to see more reviews from many other customers. Safety is a priority here at Dennis Parasail and Jet Ski. We are the ONLY Coast Guard Certified parasail boat in the state. We, of course, REQUIRE life jackets to be worn while parasailing. We follow Coast Guard regulations with life jackets on the boat. Anyone else who wants to wear one the entire trip is encouraged to wear one. This is the same for other boat tours you might go on such as whale watch. You are on the boat for approximately one hour, depending on the number of people. We can fly 2-3 people up in the chutte at a time and the ride is 8-10 minutes. It takes that long just to get the line out and back in. We also do a high ride, which takes longer. We DO sell photo packages. It is clear on our website. Just like all other parasail companies do. It is $45 for the entire party. The pictures are taken with a professional camera and the photos are downloaded right to your phone after the trip. There are approximately 30 pics per ride. Our policy is also clear on our website; NO electronics are allowed on any of our trips. This is because we care about the safety of our guests. We, along with other tour companies, have had major injuries because of the use of electronics. It is not only an issue with our insurance company, it is because we want people to have fun and be safe. This man was told there are no electronics allowed on the boat. He didn't have to go. When this man called demanding his $45 back after he looked at the pictures and agreed to pay for them, he continued to belittle our crew in front of his family and the other passengers. Then called the office to speak to the owner and demanded his $45 back or he was going to sue. After he was offered our attorney's number, he refused the number and responded by saying, "You can keep your $45. I will just blast bad reviews and hurt your business."
