    Okay overall

    I would say overall experience was great and hosts were so funny. However, you aren’t in air very long. Not that I expected to be up there for 20 minutes. Also, we paid for the photo package and the SD card will not register on any computer or kiosk, as if it doesn’t even exist. But will allow you to see the images on an actual camera, just not download them or print them. That’s a huge bummer.

    Parasailing & dolphin Tour

    Parasailing was Great! We'd give it a 5. We had Travis and Troy and they were great and fun. Go in the morning, we also stopped to watch the Dolphins. I'd rec the photo package, reasonable and nice pics.

    The water in the bay had a nasty looking brown color to it. So refreshing seeing the brown wake off of the boat. Next time will use a service that goes into the gulf. The Harbor Watersports crew did do a great job.

    Hi John, Thank you for the review and I'm glad to hear the crew did a great job. Due to the abundance of rain we've had this Summer, the water does not have the emerald green color we've known to love. It would not have made a difference if we went parasailing in the Gulf or Bay as the water would have been the same color. Although we parasail 90% of the time in the Gulf, there are times we have to parasail in the bay due to rough surf. Next time you go parasailing, you are welcome to give us a courtesy call to see if we are parasailing in the Gulf or Bay and we will let you know.
