I've always wanted to try parasailing but a fear of heights put me off. Finally, my brother, who had done it before, encouraged me to try it along with him and we had a great time. Captain Dan, who is licensed by the US Coast Guard, and his assistant explained the process during our safety briefing and once I saw how we would be fastened to the tow line, my fears evaporated. The take-off was swift and the view from the sky above Grand Traverse Bay was incredible. We were amazed at how quiet it was up there. Not for a minute did I feel uneasy about being that high in the air. Will definitely do it again!

Reservation was easily made and it was super easy and fun to get there and get out on the water. We rented a deck boat and tube to pull behind it. We have almost no motor boating experience but if was very easy and straight forward to get rolling. Staff is very young, which is not a knock. Definitely we had no concerns with the process and instructions for using the boat.

We rented a sport deck boat for delivery to Torch Lake for a full day. Reid took great care of us at set-up and went over everything, and we launched and were underway for a perfect day. The boat performed flawlessly and was in Bristol condition. When the day was over, Reid was there promptly for the pick-up and we didn't have to do a thing but gather our belongings. Yes, they charge you for a lot of fuel, but it wasn't a surprise part of the bill, we were told in advance. They aren't cheap but great service and a terrific, reliable boat shouldn't be cheap, so count us as happy customers.

To cut right down to it our Jet Ski broke down on the other end of the bay with my 6yr old nephew on the back. Out of no where I could not go over 4 mph without the entire jet ski shaking and a burning smell. Luckily I brought my cell and was able to call my husband who took the phone to the employee working. (He was great, zero complaints against him) He asked if we needed a tow and I replied I was not sure. We were moving at 4mph and I did not want to do any further damage. He said keep heading this way and call if you need us to come get you. By the time we got back (1 hr later) he informed me his boss needed to speak with me. So I had to leave my three young nephews with my husband and walk 2 hotels down the beach. Which I was annoyed about but figured he wanted to apologize and give me a refund. This was not the case at all! Not only was he too busy to see me but another worker had to inform me that they wanted to bill me $500 deposit in addition the $104 rental fee just incase their mechanic found me at fault. WHAT??? Total shock! We were the perfect renters. I barely hit 20mph. As I had a 6yr old on the back! I refused to sign the paper but they billed my card anyways. Needless to say my husband was irate! He ended up having some not so nice words with the owner. A few days later they called and apologized saying their mechanic found a wood chip in the engine and found us not at fault and would refund our $500. After 5-6 calls later we finally got our $500 back. But never received a dollar off for the horrible inconveinence this caused. I gave them 2 stars because the kid we rented from was kind and did apolagize to us. The owner not so much. Not looking to sabotage anyones business. However be cautious. $500 billed without any agreement or fault on our end. Not to mention the equipment breaking down!
