We have been going to Tidalwave for years and have never regretted one adventure. Professional, flexible staff. Captain Davis is awesome, very encouraging with the kids and a sweet local guy who sincerely loves to share the water with you. Thank you!

Our family of 6 spent 2 hrs parasailing with these fun guys. Very professional. They clearly had done this many times. They put the whole boat of people at ease. Thanks for a memorable fun cap to our vacation.
