It was an awesome adventure with many bonuses in thus beautiful area. Especially with a full moon in the evening. The two best bonuses were Captain Jack & Dawn. They kept us informed, entertained and very safe. Highly recommended!

The whole experience was amazing. It was well organized and clean. The tour guide and driver were wonderful and told us all about the island and dolphins.

I did it with my 14 year old grandson and he loved it-he kept saying “this is so cool!”

Parasailing was a blast. The two host were awesome.
