Smooth Sailing!

We always enjoy UFO Parasail because they take such great care to make sure your safe and have fun. We have taken many relatives who were afraid at 1st but they always have a great time. They will take pictures if you want so you can sit back and enjoy the ride. Thanks for a great experience again.

My husband, brother and I went. It was just going to be and my husband and my brother by himself but the wind was to strong so we all three had to go together. They comped us our pictures because we all had to go together! The crew was amazing and very informative! I would 10/10 recommend!

Friendly, safe and professional

My family had a great time with UFO Parasail! Captain Scramble and Christian were personable, fun and safety-minded. Our 'flight' was easy to schedule and we just showed up at our appointed time and were able to go out, no problem. The boat was really nice and we had a great time on the water. I would definitely recommend!

Do it! Family friendly

Loved it! This was our 2nd time parasailing and 1st time with our 5yo. The entire process was really smooth. The prior time I went parasailing, we took off from the beach, but UFO does it from the boat. The captain will dip your feet in the water if you'd like, which was super fun. We were also lucky enough to spot an eagle ray (at least that's what I think it was) from the sky. Super safe, and our 5yo did great. Our first booking was cancelled because of high winds, but it was really easy to re-book over text.
