Our first parasailing experience with Sammy Duvall Watersports today totally blew us away! My adult daughter and I each flew separately while my 7 year old grand daughter rode in the boat. The crew is so experienced and efficient it was easy to just relax...More

Just looking for some advice from others that may have done a deluxe tandem parasail or 2 person PWC tour at Sammy Duvall's Watersports. I want to book either a tandem parasail or a tandem PWC tour to surprise my husband but I'm confused by the pricing. Can anyone who's done either option confirm if the tandem parasail is $195 total for 2 people or is it $195 per person? I have the same question with the PWC tour. If we're both on the same PWC is it $170 total or is it $170 per person? If anyone can clarify for me it would be much appreciated. Thanks In Advance :)
