    Great trip

    Had a wonderful time. Our first time going and we took our 6 year old son. We all loved it. Only downside was we bought the picture package from the parasail company and it was not worth the $26. Only 2 pictures out of the whole package where you could actually see our faces.

    Gilligans parasailing was great!

    We booked a Thursday parasailing trip not knowing the forecast. When we saw it was going to rain, we called Gilligans to see about rescheduling for a late flight Wednesday. They were able to accommodate all four of us! We sailed on a beautiful day with Tim and Travis. They were courteous and fun! We had a blast! Would definitely recommend this company for parasailing adventure!

    Incredible, Breathtaking and uber professional!

    Smooth and Professional! From booking online to boarding the boat and actually flying, it was a flawless and memorable experience. Big Tip.... park across the street and use the crosswalk. The parking lot is always full due to customers from the resturant and other patrons so it's way easier to get in and out if you don't mind a 5 minute walk. ... read more
