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

July 3, 2016 Make sure you ride early morning or on a non windy green flag day. Hector and James supply life vests and explain use of the machines. Riding during high tide is a must.

We went parasailing and rented jet skis, very fun! Wonderful staff, kept our safety in mind, and they offer discounts for their other activities and food if you choose them for some fun at SPI. Definitely helped us have a great experience!

My husband had already gone parasailing in a life before me! Our son and I had never been so we decided we were going to try it! Prices were comparable, the atmosphere was great, and the staff was laid back and relaxed but very efficient! The Captain was very personable and very knowledgeable of the island! We had a great...

The views were wonderful and the guide was a great resource and fun to talk to. I've been parasailing in Mexico which you get sent up by boat but this trip was from a deck. Just as much fun. The only downside was waiting in line.

I was a little worried about going to these guys seeing the reviews, but oh my goodness I've never had so much fun. Me and girlfriend had a memory of a lifetime being high in the sky parasailing and we would most def do it all over again.
