Awesome day of fishing.

Captain Mark put us on the fish first thing! Extremely helpful if you don't have a whole lot of fishing experience. Can't wait to go back again!

My three sons loved parasailing on the bay. The staff at Parrot Eyes was attentive, friendly, safe and knowledgeable. I had reservations at another parasailing place on the island, but they kept cancelling the rides without reason...without so much as a phone call I might add. On a whim I called Parrot Eyes and they were able to accommodate us... More

We have fished with Captain Mark Guillot for several years during our annual beach vacation. We have a big group (3 adults and 9 kids) and he does as great a job helping and encouraging the kids as he does putting us on fish. This year the boats in our group split - some going out for Kingfish and some... More

The staff is friendly but if you make a reservation, don't assume they won't move you aside to take a larger group. We made our jet ski reservation several days prior to the jet ski ride, called the owner, Ron, ahead of time, received an email confirmation with date and time (pre-paid of course) and the day we showed up...

We rented jetskis and the guy said we could have 40 min but only gave us 30. Bummer. But my husband and son loved the kayak experience. Only one of the two young men seemed to know how to serve the patrons on the jet skis but oh well we still had some fun--a bit pricey but fun.

I can tell you that I have had a great experience here. Took the kids to parasail today and Eddy was super helpful at the desk booking our reservation and Captain Arturo Elias Flores Jr was great boating us to and from the platform to parasail. We have booked a kayak trip for tomorrow too. I would recommend Parrot Eyes... More

I turned 50 on my birthday in April and my family surprised me with a Canoe ride. Keeping with the tradition i booked us a ride in a kayak not knowing the difference (looks the same in the picture). The service was awful to begin with. I telephoned a few days ahead to reschedule my date (spoke with the manager,... More

Me and my girlfriend went kayaking and it was an overall good experience, the only thing was that there was no one to help us get the kayak in the water when we started, and out of the water when we finished. It wasnt that big of a deal since I'm 25 and in shape & could do it myself,... More

Capt. Mark was awesome. My wife and our two kids (10 and 8) chartered Capt Mark for a five hour bay fishing trip. It was awesome. We left and had a great boat ride out to get bait. Our boys enjoyed riding behind Capt Mark watching him steer the boat. We got our bait and headed to our fishing spot.... More
