We were informed by one of the staff that due to lightning strikes they had... More

We took our kids, 10 and 7, parasailing with Breakaway Cruises. Our crew Rasco and Bruno were the perfect guides. I and my husband went tandem with each of our kids. We would definitely recommend them for making it such a memorable experience.

I was a bit nervous at first to take my kids on a boat for parasailing but my fears were relieved by the captains and his assistant's introduction, instruction and friendly sense of humor which...

We went on the 10 o'clock Dolphin watch. The crew was very nice. They showed us a great amount of dolphins in the ocean. The dolphin tour lasted about one hour and thirty minutes. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
