    Fun but not what was described
    Debbie_A, May 2024
    The tour guide was very nice and it was fun. Booking through Viator meant we had to double the price once we got there. The boat was not as pictured but an inflatable boat. I felt is was very misleading. Also advertisement said approximately 1 hour. It was closer to 30 minutes!
    Lendell_H, Apr 2024
    I was not able to participate in the ride.When I arrived, I was told I had to pay an additional $30 for each ticket- fuel a tax fees. This was not explained to me when I made the purchase. I had called Your company and they did not express to me the additional cost I would occur. I’m on a budget so I had to walk away..

    I was on the phone for about an hour trying to book the sight seeing boat and parasailing. Turns out $300 later it was all for nothing. They sent a confirmation code to my email. When going to the water sports the next day they said this not valid and whoever booked the trip was a scam. Luckily the people at the Miami water sports were nice and we had a good time even though we had to pay again. When talking to the guy on the phone he said our boat would be departing at 10 am and that we could go parasailing after that. We never even got to go on the sightseeing boat even tho we already pic for it bc of their scamDisappointing on the registration process but liked the parasailing experience.

    Dear Allison, We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience and frustration you encountered while attempting to book the sightseeing boat and parasailing adventure. It's disheartening to learn that the confirmation code provided turned out to be invalid, leading to a disappointing experience. We are grateful that despite the setback, the staff at Miami Water Sports were accommodating, allowing you to enjoy a memorable parasailing experience. However, we understand that this doesn't fully compensate for the inconvenience and additional expenses you incurred. Please be assured that we are actively investigating this matter to prevent similar incidents in the future and improve our booking processes. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    I love it. It was a total experience I’d recommend but there was a hidden fuel fee which wasn’t clear to me at the time of booking. It made the experience more expensive than I thought but definitely worth it!
    Response from Host, Feb 2024
    Dear Gideon, Thank you for your positive feedback and recommendation. We apologize for any confusion regarding the fuel fee and will strive to make our pricing clearer in the future. We're delighted you found the experience worthwhile and hope to welcome you back soon. Best regards,
    Different boat; price doubled at location
    Joan_P, Jul 2023
    Price doubled at site! Had to pay an additional $114! Boat in ad not used. It was at the facility but they used a covered inflatable water taxi basically. I asked the guide why and he just said they weren’t using the big one that day. I think it was because my family of 3 was the only booking at that time and they didn’t want to use the big boat. I asked the difference in the 2 boats and was told the big boat in the ad goes in curves (splash in ad) but the inflatable goes linear (straight). 30 minute ride ended up being $70 per person for an inflatable.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Hi Joan, So sorry for your frustration. You booked this activity through Viator, which is a third party who sale our tours. They do not charge you for fuel/ tax, which is listed on their page prior for you to book. We have two different speed boat, depending the size of the group. We have one for 6 persons or less and one for 8 persons or more. We did not had any one signed up once you guys got there, and you didn't want to wait... which is why you went on the smaller one. So sorry for this. Regards,
