Experience the adrenaline rush of flying 600 feet above the island.

This was a first for our family & it was so much fun! I can't describe how beautiful the island is from 900 feet up! The operators of SXM are super nice & very easy to work with. An exciting, exhilarating adventure!

The captain was experienced but certainly not the US Coast Guard claimed by the website. I also think the price is too high for a 4-5 minutes rise above the sea. I also noted that it was operated by the same Caribbean Water Sports company which had a fatal fall, accident in 2011, but they are still not providing other safety measures such as the use of helmet. It seems that they are relying only on their legal disclaimers and unenforceable waivers, which they ask clients to sign. The experience itself was good, just the concern of taking unnecessary risk by not having enough safety equipments. The asst. captain also offered photo opportunity which we didn't mind, it was just that the sd card used was not properly formatted, and requires more tech knowledge on the part of users.

Very bumpy boat ride with 10 people (be prepared to vomit!). Looks scarier than it really is. Smooth departure and landing on the parasail. Beautiful views and time in the air is about 10 minutes. The vendor offered to take pictures on a SD card for $30 and we took offer. Pics came out not too shabby.
