Totally worth it Down for Easter 2021. Ike and Brad were great. Parasailing off of Tradewinds resort. Dan drove us out - great ride. Dragos walked us through the process. Great for 15 and 17 year old daughters.- they had a blast. Totally worth it. Great atmosphere on the boat for families and fun to interact with other groups going before and after you.

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.
