Parasail outing with our 3 young adult kids was a ball. There was an issue of wind earlier in the day and I got a call right back about our booking. Guys who took us out were friendly and competent. We felt like our safety was a priority and that we were in good hands.

These guys knew what they were doing and they had a very safe rig. Long ride. And they dip you in the water a bit at the end.

Between the four of us, we had the best time! Two locals who can't wait to bring more friends and two vacationers who said it was by far the best part of the trip! Even after having a bit of issues with booking (on my part) Brian and the crew worked in time for us and gave us the best... More

The Purple Island Parasail guys were on time, patient, relaxed and fun to work with. We had a great time, a bit scary for me (the mom) although there was no reason to be as it all went well, was easy, in control, and pretty stunning.
