This place was amazing! I went parasailing for the first time so I was nervous and had a lot of questions. But, everyone was very nice, considerate, and acknowledged my concerns. Would definitely go back to Downwind Sails and para-sail again!

The staff was friendly, the men on the boat and the man on the jet ski were always concerned with our safety. They made sure we had an excellent experience.
