Better luck next time.
Sarah_C, Apr 2024
We were not able to enjoy parasailing this trip. As it was cancelled once we arrived to the location. No one called to advise us. Trying to get the refund as difficult as the representative wasn't very helpful. The next person whom we spoke with was very helpful. Previous trip was great.
Great experience!
Marisol_S, Apr 2024
Being in the air floating in the sky was very relaxing and enjoyable. I was a little nervous at first but the crew prepared me for what to expect. Would highly recommend!

Good fun. Felt very safe. The crew was very professional and made sure we had a great time! Must do in Cancun.
Worth it
Bryant_L, Sep 2023
One of the best rides we had during our Cancun vacation. The staff were courteous and professional. Worth every penny.
Awesome Tour
Caroline_A, Sep 2023
A perfect sunny day and proficient taxi service and tour guides who took really nice pictures and a video for $45 US dollars extra. I felt safe during the entire experience, which was even better than I had imagined. We could see turtles and fish from the highest point. Afterwards, the guides were very relaxed about us staying at the resort beach, even though it wasn't our hotel, and we swam in the crystal-clear water for over an hour without feeling rushed at all. I also really appreciated the tour company reaching out to me before the trip to confirm the address, time, and where to meet. Not all the companies in Mexico have communicated well and this company really made it fun and easy. All in all, this tour was nothing but great. Thank you for a magical last day in Cancun.
Parasail experience it's a must
Diane_A, Sep 2023

Response from Host, Nov 2023
Thank you for the time you took to write this review, this is also a very nice option if you do not want to spend the whole day on a tour and do a short activity. We are happy to see you enjoyed it.
Nikki_I, Jul 2023
It was supper scary especially while 300ft up in the air realizing you are being held by this single thin robe. It was nice but wouldn't do it again. Too dangerous. Staff were very good and professional.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
We appreciate the time you take to let us know how your experience was. The tour might result scary, however, your safety is our priority in this kind of adventure. We understand you do not want to do it again. We are glad to see that staff and guide were good. Thank you again.
Smooth Sailing.
Sarah_C, Jul 2023
Being able to soar over and have a birds eye view was amazing. I will definitely do this again ir was great.
Well I wasn’t able to do it after all.
Daniel_S, Jun 2023
Made a reservation in the morning and my wife started having a panic attack. I booked it at 9:56am and sent and email an hour later to try to cancel; reservation was at 2pm. Contacted the company and I tried to get a refund but they wouldn’t without a medical note which I wasn’t about to go to a clinic or hospital in Mexico since I don’t speak the language. I didn’t get to experience it so that’s why it’s average. We watched a lot of parasailing in the actual ocean so I would have rather done that anyways. Never got a call to confirm if we were going or not after.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
We are really sorry you could not make the tour, please contact me to verify your refund: I will be glad to assist you, if the refund is applicable we will support you in that
Great experience if...
Shelly_F, Apr 2023
Great experience if you’re looking to see the water from above. I was expecting it to be more scary, accelerating however it was very relaxing and peaceful. Loved it! The only thing I would have loved to know is that you go as a big group and there’s only one parasailing per couple. You do have to wait until is your turn and until everyone is done to head back.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Many thanks for your review, we really appreciate your time and feedback
Beautiful Views
Alex_S, Mar 2023
I had a great time parasailing! I'm traveling alone but the staff were able to accommodate me by having me ride with the photographer. I thought it would be scary but it was actually a very gentle ride.

Hemalkumar_D, Jan 2023
We had a very good experience. View of the Lagoon was awesome. I was a bit worried but it worked out fine in the end.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
The hight can be scary but definately worth the view, so glad you enjoy and had a goog time.
Amazing activity to do!
Roberto_E, Nov 2022
This was surprisingly calming after you get past the fear. I’d do it again. I was a little bit disappointed at the quality of the pictures though.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you very much for sharing with us your incredible adventure, we hope you have enjoyed an incredible day flying over the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
Tour guides will make the trip wroth it
Antrice_M, Aug 2022
Loved the operators of this tour, just didn’t like not having a seat belt that far up lol amazing views and again; amazing tour guides
Response from Host, Aug 2022
We appreciate your comments, we will send the information about the seat belt, this must be one of the most critical safety procedures on the flight. The view is really lovely and we are really glad to have very nice photo shoots.
Disappointed in service NOT received
Ruby_E, Aug 2022
My family traveled from Texas to enjoy the parasling experience. Cancun had unexpected 3 hour detour in traffic so we missed the excursion. I have reached out several times to inquire a refund due to construction. No one will respond to any emails. We were unable to reschedule due to one answering phones or emails. This was not our fault and should be awarded a refund.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you for contacting us, we really sorry for the delay to get to the marina, it seems this was really frustrated for you, we would like to get information about this issue feel free to contact us any time.
Do Not Book
Korra_W, Aug 2022
We were unable to even attend the adventure due to road construction so we never even made it to the experience. Once we were made aware that we couldn’t physically attend we contacted viator immediately and requested a refund which has been denied. We are not from Mexico and the fact that we can not get a refund is ridiculous!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you very much for your comments, It sounds like it was a very frustrating experience. We would like to do whatever we can to turn you back into a happy passenger We will reach out to you shortly so we can exchange contact information to work through this problem together.

This was my kids first time in Cancun, and they wanted to do it all, and try new things. So parasailing was perfect for them, and we loved it.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Perfect, we are really glad to see your family enjoyed this experience, the tour is a very nice option for couples or families and the adventure is really exciting.
