Island water charters were great! They had no problem accommodating more than my original reservation, as well as a cheaper option than going through the cruise line. Everything went very smooth and we're very helpful once on the boat! Everyone had a blast.

My first time parasailing! I was very nervous since I'm afraid of heights but the nice staff explained things well and put me at ease. I was lucky enough to see the Dolphins swimming below me. Definitely worth doing!
