The parsailling was amazing because they actually take you 600 ft and I have done parsailling before but it was only 300ft.

Finally found a company that would take us out! The guide, Joe, was great. The price was reasonable and we had a fantastic time.

I bought a groupon and called and scheduled a dolphin watch eco-tour. Thirty minutes before my out of town guests and I arrived, I received a call cancelling the trip. I had not heard the call because we were walking the beach. We arrived at the establishment and the boat driver told us it had been cancelled due to low... More

Were to take pictures of the sunset , and when the sun started to go down couples from the lower deck rushed up and blocked our good view, how rude.... More

Pepe and Bruno were great! Friendly and easy going. They explained everything really well. The rest of the staff was also very outgoing and friendly. They keep you up in the sky for a good amount of time

We took off at 5:30 pm and returned around 7:30 PM. The boat was comfortable and clean and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. It took us a while to locate some dolphins but when we did, the were playful and friendly. The price of the cruise was quite reasonable as were the prices at the bar.

Rasco and Bruno did a great job of getting us up in the air today. We had a blast ! It was a smooth ride and we enjoyed a gorgeous view of the bay and the ocean. Would love to do it again sometime.
