    Worry free

    Very easy transaction, picked who the place and worry free transaction. It was a windy day and they told took us out anyway to see if the sail would go up. It did and we were able to go up. The gentleman running the boat were very professional and courteous to all on the boat. We had them take pictures for us and they did a nice job with that. To finish off the boat ride we stopped in the middle of a school of dolphins and watched them play for a few minutes. Great Trip and would book for them to take us out again.

    Great Experience

    We went on Tripshock the night before looking for things to do , booked parasailing for 5, two adults,two teenagers and a 10 year old. Everything went smooth when we got there, it was an easy process. The adults went up in one and the three girls in another.This was a first for all of us and a highlight of the trip. I have motion sickness so I made sure to take something for the boat ride out and back ,and was just fine. The staff was super friendly and professional . I would recommend getting the picture package , its only 20.00 and well worth it so you can just relax on the ride and they get better pictures anyways. We will return to do this when we are in Destin again .

    OK activity

    It was an OK activity. Won't pay the same amount of money for a short trip in the air. You spend most of your time on the boat. Although they do disclose this. I do like the pictures we got after the trip, had to pay extra.
