    This was so much fun! Our guy in charge did an amazing job had a great sense of humor, which made it more fun and put everything at ease. The view is beautiful up in the sky while parasailing. It was a smooth takeoff and a smooth landing would definitely do it again, highly recommend.

    Hidden fees
    Stefanie_C, Apr 2024
    I received a call that they canceled the flight 10 minutes before it start time. Very unprofessional. It ruined my whole day. Surprised by the extra $100+ extra fees at the door. It really made the whole experience not worth it.
    Great experience
    bernard_c, Apr 2024
    I enjoy every bit of it I have a blast. Yesterday April 1, was my birthday. I had to do it big for it
    Terrible, Never using Viator Again
    Cameron_C, Mar 2024
    Viator is a bad app for booking, i had origionally looked up parasailing near me and it searched it to somewhere else that was non-refundable. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND USING THIS APP! They did nothing to help refund the hundreds of dollars i wasted! I also called the place and explained the situation, and they were rude for the entire conversation at hand. Viator was suppose to help me, but the customer support only offered to help me waste more money on a different trip far away that is impossible to reach.
    The Best In Miami
    Rebecca_M, Mar 2024

    UNMISSABLE TOUR
    Luiz_O, Mar 2024
    An exhilarating sensation of flying like a seabird (like a seagull) at almost 200 feet of altitude and at a speed of 25 knt. Add to all this a one-hour ride on a brand new jet ski. It was worth every penny spent.
    Response from Host, Mar 2024
    Thank you for sharing your thrilling experience! We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the sensation of flying like a seabird and the adrenaline rush of jet skiing. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we look forward to welcoming you back for more unforgettable adventures!

    Bait and Switch - be warned about hidden non advertised costs
    Victor_T, Jan 2024
    We booked the event through the Viator webpage for a parasailing event with Miami Water Sports. The event was listed as 89.00. I booked for 4 individuals. Upon arrival at the event time for check in we were amazed to find that the bait and switch was on with an additional 48.00 plus fees and tax required for each indivial to parasail. With the no refund policy you are forced to abandon your reservation and fees paid- in my case 356.00 or pay the additional 252.00 to proceed with the booking. So be aware the cost to parasail with these crooks is not 89.00 but in fact 152.00- nearly 50% more than advertised. Very disappointed in this situation. Be warned. Hidden fees with a no refund policy is criminal. I had multiple contacts with the company for directions and questions and not one time was it mentioned that additional cost equaling nearly 50% more would be incurred. Very deceitful.
    Response from Host, Jan 2024
    Dear Victor, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your experience with Miami Watersports. We sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience you faced regarding the pricing of our parasailing activity. I would like to clarify the pricing structure, as we strive for transparency in all our communications. The price listed on the Viator webpage for the parasailing event is indeed $89.00, which is the amount paid online at the time of booking. This initial charge is part of our pricing policy, which is detailed on our Viator listing. Additionally, as per our pricing structure detailed on Viator, there is a remaining fee of $58.00 per person to be paid upon arrival. This fee covers the fuel for the activity. We understand that this may not have been explicitly clear, and we are continuously working to improve our communication to ensure that all fees are understood before booking. We regret to hear that this was not communicated effectively during your interactions with our team. It is never our intention to mislead our customers, and we will take your feedback as an opportunity to review and improve our communication processes, both on our listings and in our direct customer interactions. Regarding the no-refund policy, this is a standard practice in our industry, particularly due to the scheduling and resource allocation required for each booking. However, we always aim to be as accommodating as possible to our customers' needs and concerns. Your feedback is invaluable to us as we continually strive to improve our services and customer experience. We would like the opportunity to discuss this further with you and see how we can make things right. Again, we apologize for any misunderstanding and inconvenience you experienced, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you better in the future. Sincerely, Miami Watersports'Team

    Being 450 ft in the air and being able to see everything from another distance.. the driver and instructor was very professional and you could tell they cared about our safety. Would most definitely book with them again

    Oybek_T, Sep 2023

    Bad experience
    abhishek_b, Sep 2023
    This tour sucked!!! Regret booking it and would recommend anyone to avoid this as much as possible. They made us wait another 1.5 hours after we got there and gave us grief about the card holder not being present. I booked it for my sisters as a birthday gift. Tye full price is not what they show, made my sisters pay another $116 on top of the viator booking.
    Beautiful views
    Ashley_B, Sep 2023
    The view was spectacular. They got some great pictures of us as well. I thought it would be scary but it really wasn’t.
    Great time parasailing!
    Laura_F, Aug 2023
    We had a wonderful time! Pierre, Marco and Liam were great and made our time on the boat and our flight a fantastic experience!
    Experience was fun. What...
    Barbara_C, Aug 2023
    Experience was fun. What was not fine is the additional 115 dollar we had to upon arrival that was not disclosed on viator when i purchased the voucher.

    This was a life-changing experience. It was so much fun the boat was so comfortable, and the guides were amazing.
    A memory we will never forget
    Tanesha_A, Jul 2023
    It was our first time visiting Miami and we both wanted to do something we both wouldn’t forget, and believe me we would never forget the moment we took off into the sky together sharing laughter and conversation over the beautiful water with the wind blowing in our faces it was so exciting and fun a little nerve wrecking lol being that I was afraid of heights but that too have passed, It was definitely a five star experience and if you’re thinking about it, DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Be prepared to spend far...
    Manuel_O, Jul 2023
    Be prepared to spend far more than you already spent. $600 for 3 fliers and 2 spectators. This isn’t counting the hour wait. Beyond ridiculous.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Hi Manuel, So sorry for your frustration. We might had a bit of delay because of weather that we have no control on. Miami during the summers has a many storm/rain throughout the day and this puts us behind schedule. Remember that we need to keep it safe for all our of participants. However, not everyone understands this!
