My family and I had an absolutely amazing time parasailing with the crew at Dockside! Everything is very reasonably priced and worth every penny of it! Our dockhands, Amber and Clay, we're SO much fun and I will be sure to recommend Dockside to ANY of my friends/family who visit Destin. We had such a blast! I can't wait to go back!!!!

We loved our experience here. The boat captain and Amber who helped us and explained everything to our group were both so ffriendly and offered us some great tips! We r planning to go back next year. I thought the pricing was reasonable and the kids loved the dog in the office. Thanks for the fun. We had teens and a7,9 and 10 year olds in our group.

Our daughter asked to visit the beach for her 17th birthday and we wanted to do something really special. Our family usually doesn't spend money on frivilous entertainment, so it was a stretch for us to consider doing so. We called around to compare prices, finding Dockside watersports in Destin was very reasonable. We decided to take a ride on the jetski one day and do parasailing the next. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. Safety is a major factor and we learned that they perform regular maintenance on all of their equipment even before it might need it. Our experience was so much fun, over the top! If you have an opportunity to go to Destin, this is one place our family recommends to visit.

They offered us a great deal while we were out looking at the different companies at the harbor. They overbooked us and we had to wait another thirty minutes. It was the first time to go up for all nine of us and they did a great job. Amber did a great job of calming the fears of the younger ones and the captain did a great job, too.

We chose Dockside Watersports for our first ever parasailing experience this week. We were completely happy with our experience. The staff was sooo friendly, the kids LOVED Rudy the dog... :-) Clay and Amber were the ones on the boat helping us and they were WONDERFUL, FULL OF ENERGY and just so much fun!!! They were awesome with the kids, we had one that was afraid of boats but by the end of the trip Amber had her loosened up and enjoying it! Everything felt very safe!!!! From what I saw they had one of the bigger, nicest boats of the other parasailing companies. We will defiantly be using them again next summer when we go back!!!! They are very reasonable on their prices.
