My husband and I came all the way to Malia to buy some locally grown bananas, which Malia is famous for, and ended up hanging in the sky adoring the sunset. The crew at the beach was just so nice and kind and after a closer look at their offer - the price was more than fair - we spontaneously decided to go aboard with them.
Best decision ever!!!

Malia is definitely worth a visit, not for the bananas, but for the Dolphin Watersports!

Family with 2 teens and we’ve had the thrills and spills of the jet skis and the parasailing during our holiday. The guys work really hard to make sure you enjoy your experience. It’s fun, safe and good value.

I have to give the photo lady a mention. She is a great photographer and a superstar! Photos arrived in my inbox within the hour and they are well worth the money!!

Hope to be back with extended family next year and will be back to see the guys for more fun on the water.

There were pedalloes and jet skis for hire and we asked if there was any chance of a discount and they gave us a good deal. We got thirty minutes of jet-skiing but only paid for fifteen minutes! The jet skis were in excellent condition and were very powerful, it was an exhilarating experience.

We spent an hour on the pedaloes and went over to the island opposite Malia beach. We also did paragliding which was a bit scary at first but once we got used to it, it was brilliant.

My daughter and two of her friends each paid 40 euro to do parascending with Dolphin Sports. After a thrilling few minutes in the air, they were brought down to "land" on the back of the boat. Just as their feed touched the boat, the rope which attached the parachute to the boat snapped - leaving the three girls being pulled out to sea by the parachute. They were wearing life jackets but were getting tangled up in the ropes and their heads kept going under the water. The men on the boat - clearly with no plan for what to do - just kept shouting at them to unclip their harnesses - but this was impossible. Luckily, the parachute eventually got dragged over some rocks to a halt. Staff on jet skis came to give the girls a lift back to shore, but not before the girls had to clamber over the rocks, suffering cuts and bruises as a result. A request for a refund was met with a barrage of abuse; the owner was only worried about damage his parachute. Had the rope snapped whilst they were in the air, or had they panicked when being dragged out to sea, this story might have had a tragic ending.
So - don't go near this organisation unless you can be assured of their safety procedures and training!

The staff is very kind, helpful and understanding. But the main manager is inflexible and unfriendly. All rules are applied once he has money in his
Pocket. Very unprofessional.
Do not recommend.

We went to dolphin water sports 3 times during our stay in Malia!!!People were really friendly and funny we practically became friends (as we visited them often). All the activities are really entertaining and the staff is very professional!!!!
Definately do the parasailing(When you are in the sky you have the view of Malia to enjoy!), the jet skis are really fun and of course the flying fish,the ringos and the banana!!!(Yes we tryed them all!!!!!) We also rented the pedal boat with slide with is more calm and relaxing!
They also provide photos service as there are two gorgeous ladies there daughters of the owner i think) which take pictures of you during the action and then give them to you in a CD!
I definately recommend Dolphin Water Sports to everyone who wants to have genuine fun!!!!!
Thank you Dolphin staff!!!!!

We came here twice during our trip and we got a good deal for 3 of the fastest (1000cc yamaha R1 engine) jetskis for us and the timelimit was not so strict. Good and clear instructions from the staff and they knew what they were doing. Safety was important for them. Overall good fun with the jetskis and the owner had a small table locker where he put our items such as cellphone, keys etc. From the list: 50€ / 1 person / 1 jetski / 15min

We hired a pedal boat for an hour and had a good laugh :-) And took a trip around some rocks and the church.

Fab set up - couldn’t have been more helpful (we were let down by our hotel who had no water sports at all) - Jetski, SUP, Crazy Sofa, Canoes, and best of all, Hoverboard - did a good deal on package and with decent photos too! Recommend !
