If you're thinking about this experience, consider reading this review as a sign to JUST BOOK IT. Dave and Chris are super experienced, fast and super casual about your 80ft flight that will happen within minutes of you stepping onto the boat. While we did not get to see any whales/dolphins during our recent experience, it did not lessen our awesome ride on the coast of Santa Barbara. There were only 4 of us on the boat so the total trip was less than an hour. Highly recommend.

My experience started at 1pm. I messaged the host at 11am letting him know I was going to be late and he told me there’s only one experience a day. I didn’t really understand why he said that but I still tried to make it there on time anyway. I got there at 12:58 and what they don’t tell you is that it’s near a very tiny parking lot in a crowded area so I called and told them I was looking for a parking and if they could hold the boat for a few minutes while I found a spot. The woman who answered the phone told me sternly that they don’t hold the boat. Very discouraged, I drive back to my hotel to receive a message from Dave 20 minutes later telling me that the captain held the boat for 15 minutes waiting for me. The communication with this place sucks. I probably would’ve enjoyed the parasailing but how would i have even known that they were waiting for me? No empathy, no acknowledgement, just lots of miscommunication. I would LOVE a refund.

Great experience! We left a few minutes early and were given ample time to enjoy our experience. AMAZING views that were so gorgeous. It was a great start to our day.

i have never been parasailing so I didn't know what to expect. Dave was incredibly kind and friendly. As soon as we got on the boat we were already laughing and having fun because of Dave. The music on the boat was probably my favorite part of waiting to go up there! Overall a happy and fun environment. Then when it was our turn to go up in the air it was so peaceful and quiet. Such a beautiful experience. 11/10 would recommend!

What an awesome experience!! We went for our 2 year wedding anniversary and it was such a memorable experience. The view was absolutely incredible. Going in winter we were nervous about what to wear/getting wet but we stayed nice and dry the whole time. (Jeans/Jacket/Running Shoes were perfect!). Captain and crew were very reassuring and brought great energy! Will definitely make this a return excursion when we are back in town!
