“Professional, reliable – and really good fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I went parasailing and on a jet ski safari with Zanzibar Parasailing and they were both fantastic experiences! The equipment is well maintained and in a very good condition, the crew is extremely friendly and experienced. I felt entirely safe during both trips, although it was a completely new thing to me, and I enjoyed it a lot. If you are looking for something exceptional, good fun and a different view on the island, give it a try!

“Absolutely fantastic experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We went parasailing and on the 'fly fish' inflatable thrill ride with 'Zanzibar Parasailing'. The parasailing was probably the highlight of our trip to Zanzibar, the views are totally breathtaking. The crew on the boat were efficient, friendly and we felt totally safe in their hands. The 'fly fish' ride was a real laugh and certainly got the adrenaline flowing! Each of the activities lasted for about 15 minutes, plenty of time given they are quite intense.Considering all the effort and resources that goes into providing these activities, as well as the fact that they are immensely enjoyable, we thought this was excellent value. To summarise: great fun, great staff, great value and something not to be missed!

“Unforgettable Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Wow what a great day! We went on the jet ski safari. We shared a jet ski and at first I thought we would want one each, but there is plenty of time to swap over, we both had a really good go on them. It didn't matter at all, in fact it was a good experience to be on the back too. We went from Cholo beach to Tumbatu Island. We stopped there for a break and a swim and photos - the guide had a dry box so cameras were safe. You can't land on Tumbatu as tourists are not permitted there. On the way back we had the opportunity to play around with the jetskis and really have some fun. Donuts on a jetski are amazing!! The tour is quite long, plenty of time to really get to grips with the jetskis, but they really aren't difficult to drive. Our guide, Nick, was great and took some brill photos of us too. Definitely recommend!!! We had an unforgettable day, thank you :)

“Poorly organised”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Unfortunately our jet-ski tour was very badly organised by rude tour operators that took us out in dangerous sea conditions. Alongside the tour being very overpriced. I suggest using a different operator or giving this one a skip.
