Guys were great and very efficient. We did the picture package and it came out pretty well. They were friendly and helped eliminate my daughter's fear of Parasailing. Unfortunately, there was some fog so we were unable to go on the beach side but that has nothing to do with these guys. Everything was clear on the bay side so if this happens to you then don't have any fear. Very glad we did it.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Gary, Thanks for flying with us! When visibility is low (like with the fog) or there's high winds that could make your experiance unsafe, we always take our guests to the bay. You can still see dolphins, sharks, sea turtles, etc from the air in that location. And we're so happy to hear you had a good time! Thanks again for coming and we hope you'll come back soon!

Super fun adventure for kids. Gorgeous weather and off season allowed boat captains to have fun with the kids. Pointed out dolphins and took great photos for our photo package. Would book again through TripShock and would highly recommend Gilligans.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Three of the four in our group had parasailed before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I went up with my brother-in-law and it was his first time. When we got off he wanted to know if they would let him up there for half an hour. It was so great and the crew was professional and efficient.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
