The parasailing was exceptionally good. I’d never done it before, but the guides explained what was going to happen and how the safety equipment worked. I felt safe the entire time. The view from altitude of the entire Tampa Bay area is amazing. You may see dolphins, sharks, or other sea life; we saw two dolphins but nothing else.

On a whim, decided to take the sunset tour & super happy we did. Started boarding the boat with some reggae music which set the perfect vibe for a sunset cruise. Captain Tim & Dan were awesome, super fun & friendly & knowledgeable… they made the experience awesome for sure.

We went parasailing and it was amazing. The staff kept you well informed on what was going to happen and how to do everything. The pictures turned out well. Also did the Dolphin Watch and Sand Dollar Island. The staff worked hard to see lots of dolphins. I have never seen so many up close.
