    High Fly Fun

    The girls really enjoyed the parasail. The crew was great and it didn’t take long to get going. They were really high and had some good wind. We were told we couldn’t take pictures while on the boat. Others on the boat said they were able to take pics on their past parasails. Good time.

    Friendly service and crew

    Excellent service. We ended up at the wrong location but they were able to work with us and change the location to where we were.

    Great boat experience, less than honest counter girl

    Ok, so we sent our 3 teenage kiddos up. They loved it! It was worth the $ for us to observe. The 2 guys on the boat were great. Now the coordinator who signed us in and told us where to go was less than honest. She told us that EVERYTHING except for our towels would be locked up, including cell phones, so we spent $35 on pictures. Well NOTHING was locked up. It wasn't even offered. We all had our cell phones out!!! Others were drinking water on board the boat too. Talk to the boat driver and deck hand before making any decisions!!!! Wish I did
