“Full pay full time full enjoyment”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

For my girlfriends birthday she got parascending with Paracraft Lanzarote and completly enjoyed it. We payed 80 Euros for double the time than usual and I was coming on the boat for free wich is usually 15 euros. So there is nothing to complain about. We got our trip, everything was handles safely and with care. I´d go there again at any time

Thanks for th experience

“No fuss jet skiing”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

My girlfriend and I went here as it was the closest place to our resort we knew we could hire a jet ski. We payed our 50 euros each, was given a life jacket and then taken to the jet ski circuit on the companies RIB. You have to go anti clockwise around four marker buoys but at the time it was only us two and so there was plenty of room. We set off at the same time as the jet boat (also advertised as a 25 minute experience) however didn't get called / taken back in until quite a while after. I suppose the inconsistent timing other reviews have spoken of worked in our favour on this occasion. Personally a no fuss experience to get on two jet skis for 25 minutes for 100 euros but that's all we wanted so no complaints.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Kids loved the parasailing, jet sks and banana boats. Staff were very helpful throughout. Not the cheapest overall, but well worth it

“BEWARE ! Check beforehand on the time you get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We booked our three children 18/15/12 and a friend 17 onto the parascending at Playa Chica at a cost of €140. The brochure stated clearly that the "ride" would last for twelve (12) minutes. It was about half that.
My complaint after to the people running the show was met by denials etc. They indicated in broken English that the twelve minutes referred to the two people who ride together!
Having said that the kids themselves enjoyed the experience.
I however felt fleeced by the sharp practise of the operators who appear to be raking it in with the numbers queueing to participate.
I would not return to this attraction again.

Buenas tardes , en cuanto a su aportación lamentamos su actitud por que hasta tres veces utiliza calificativos insultantes por lo que no merece más comentarios.
Nos quedamos con la frase que dice que su hija disfruto de la atracción

Gracias

“Advertised as 12 Minute trip ended up as a 5 minute trip - Be Ware”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Booked trip for 11 a.m. Boat arrived at 11.30 a.m. We were told by organisers that we would have a 12 minute Parasend. The boat took ten people on board with 5 pairs. My daughter and I were first up and the trip seemed very short. I timed the next four couples up and they averaged from 4 minutes 35 to 5 minutes 15 seconds. We complained about this back at centre and were simply brushed off. They told us they'd send us out for another 5 min each which we didn't want as it would take up about another hour of hour day! Cowboys and Gangsters is the only way of discribing them! Once they have your money they don't care about you anymore. The boss man behind the counter was easily one of the most ignorant men I have ever met! It 80 cost euros per pair for 5 minutes. A totoal rip-off. Be ware if you are booking this and highlight before you go as is printed on their Brochure that it is a 12 minute parasent. While my daughter enjoyed the parasend i have rated it terrible because of the rip-off and the attitude of the owners of Paracraft Lanzarote

Buenas tardes , disculpe por el tiempo transcurrido para responder a su queja.

Como bien dice usted la atracción del parascending duraba 12 minutos , no 12 minutos por persona, lamentamos su confusión , pero lo pone bien claro en los folletos , carteles , web , ect.

En cuanto a que chapurreamos Inglés , tenemos operarios Nativos Ingleses para una mejor atención al público Británico.
Lo de las colas lo intentamos evitar, hemos abierto en Playa Blanca, pero mucha gente viene recomendada por otros clientes felices de hacer las actividades anteriormente con nosotros, lamentamos que usted no sea uno mas de los cientos que quedan satisfechos.
Gracias por su aportación que nos ayudara a seguir mejorando
