We did the morning Jetski tour. Had a great time and the guide was nice and answered any questions we had. Half the tour is in no wake waters so you take it nice and slow, the other half is riding through the bay so a good mix of your time. Would recommend to a friend.

I would give it ZERO stars if I could! We ate lunch at the restaurant, which was amazing. Decided to take the kids to ride jet skies. Every question we asked was rudely answered. In the end it was clear they were trying to make every excuse to not allow us to rent the jet skies. Cash only, the day we were there only 2 persons to a jet ski, can’t switch out passengers. So we pull out cash and are ready to book. They continued to make excuses. It all boiled down to the fact that we had one drink at lunch. I get it, no drinking and driving. Hey, just say that in the beginning! First of all, it was one drink. Don’t make us waste our time with your childish beating around the bush BS. Handle your company like professionals! That goes for the young men and the older man running the counter. Sonny’s will continue to get my business. At the time it was convenient to go through this company since it was right there at our lunch spot! Sonny’s Beach Service is always exceptional!

We rented a jet ski and paddle boards. The staff is so nice, answered all our questions. I highly recommend. Please note unless booking online, they were only taking cash which was a problem for us.

I called a week before our trip to ask about adding a 3rd rider on a jet ski and further details. I was told as long as the combined weight did not exceed 450 pounds any 3 riders could go regardless of age. This activity was chosen by our daughter as her birthday present. She originally wanted to go horse back riding but thought this would be fun, we should have ridden horses instead. I also asked if they had a military or fireman discount because my husband is a veteran and is currently a fireman. They said we should book online and then when we arrive we will have to pay for the 3rd rider and then a discount would then be given. We arrived for our scheduled appointment and due to weather we could not go out. So we waited 30 minutes for someone to decide when we could reschedule for later in the day. No one could find the schedule, which was the 1st clue to get our money back. Finally, I looked up their schedule on my phone and saw there was an opening later in the day. This was our last day so we could not come another day. We spoke then about adding the 3rd rider. So we adjusted our plans for the day and returned later to be told a 3rd rider could not be added. Not because of the weight but because they do not allow 2 adults and a child. The previous week the owner I spoke with had said otherwise. Then I asked if our veteran discount could be applied and I was told they are not allowed to give a discount. So I stayed back for an hour not able to see or take pictures of my husband or daughter because once the jet ski leaves the canal they are not visible from the dock. So as I waited I was told to leave my number for the owner to call me that evening so I could speak with him. I never received a call that night or the next morning. So I called and spoke with a worker who told me that the owner is too busy to call me because he is "mentally spent" from parasailing all day with customers. He said they could not give me a discount because I paid online. He tried to give me a discount for the next time I come. I told him no thank you because I would never give them another dime! The entire conversation his worker spoke to me very rudely and told me to just leave a bad review. So I would strongly suggest using another place on the island.

My family and I went parasailing with Parrot Eyes. The staff was funny, kind, helpful, and made sure that we were safe throughout our wait and ride. I was nervous, but they made me feel at ease. We had a blast! You've GOT to give parasailing a try!
