“Parasailing -- What a thrill!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Fantastic experience -- A great way to cool off in the summer heat. Flying high above the lake with a great view of WDW. The crew was very nice and gave great instructions. We opted for the extra photo package. They took great pictures of both my daughters for a single fee. Everybody was really helpful from the time we booked until we exited the boat. We'll be back! Highly recommend.

“Long overdue review”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We have experienced what Sammy Duvall Watersports has to offer on two separate occasions.
In 2008 we took a group of High School Seniors on their senior trip to WDW. They went parasailing and or tubing & had a blast, many felt it was the very best part of the trip.
The staff did an excellent job of organizing our group of 50 plus.

Our second experience was a family trip. Our son had always wanted to try wakeboarding. With Daves excellent instruction & tips, he was jumping the wake by the time our session ended!
The rest of us were content with going tubing, which I highly recommend.

I should mention that our trip was in December, it was quite cool, overcast with temps in the low 70's. Don't let cool weather stop you....we had a blast!

I feel bad that I have not reviewed this sooner, I wholeheartedly recommend Sammy Duval Watersports

“Non-Stop fun!!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

My 9 year old and his best friend spent 30 minutes the first day tubing, and then begged to come back the second! We are at DISNEY and they wanted to tube all day long! First of all, it was booked up, but Madison was wonderful and helped squeeze us in for a half hour- that was so much fun, we came back for an hour with Trent the next day! Trent went above and beyond to make sure the boys had a great time, and he listened to everything they loved doing to provide them with an amazing time. It was out last day, otherwise I know they would be back for a third day!!!! We went water skiing 2 years ago and Ross was our instructor...he had all three of my non-skiing kids up and skiing that day!!! He was awesome too!!!

“Expensive but a Blast”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Parasailing, water skiing and tube riding was such fun. Our water ski instructor and boat captain Cory had so much patience and was able to teach my nephew how to water ski on the first try. She made sure that the kids enjoyed themselves and was upbeat and fun to be around. It is going to be hard to go back to the Disney parks after this experience.
