    Parasailing was great! The only issue we ran into is that for some reason the venue had us down for only two people instead of four, but had charged us for 4 people. I suspect it may have been a communication error between tripshock and the activity venue. A few people had to stay behind because the trip was overbooked as a result. Other than that the crew was nice and friendly. We felt very safe. My kids got a bit motion sick but that was the worst of it.

    Fun experience

    I went with my husband. It was the first time for both of us and it was the best. Our guides were awesome and friendly. Made us feel very comfortable as all the people in our trip were first timers.

    We booked our parasailing adventure with tripshock and it was awesome. We didn't think we would be able to go parasailing because of the light rain but thankfully it stopped raining. Our Captain Travis was and our first mate were great and lots of fun. we would totally book again with Gilligan Watersport for our next trip.
