My daughter and I have wanted to go parasailing for the past two years. We were on vacation for a few days on South Padre Island and selected Parrot Eyes to give it a try. Captain Ron and his crew were awesome - their knowledge and customer service were excellent! We felt safe and totally enjoyed our flight! The crew... More

Incredible time fishing with Capt Mark. We can't say enough wonderful things about our fishing experience. Caught lots of speckled trout, had a ton of fun. He was extremely knowledgable and gave our 12y/o an experience of a lifetime. Fished a variety of ways, learned a lot . Back at the dock they cleaned our fish so we could have... More

Love fishing with Mark. He always lands us on the fish and is such a fun patient captain. We fish with him every summer.

We saw dolphins, all sorts of birds, learned to fish and caught enough to bring back and have a great meal (the restaurant will cook what you catch and it's great). Captains were very patient with our kids who kept getting lines tangled as they learned. This was a really memorable experience.

We highly recommend Captain Mark - he is awesome! He took us out to catch redfish in chilly weather. We caught three big fish and brought them back to Parrot Eyes to eat. Captain Mark cleaned the fish and suggested excellent dining options. We ate blackened fish, enchiladas and tacos. Delicious. Thank you, Captain Mark, for a great trip!!!

My dad and I throughly enjoyed the morning with Captain Mark and Andy. Captain Mark found the fish as he said he would and we began reeling them in. In total we caught 11-black drum, the smallest weighing 9-pounds. Great day for two seniors.
