    My teenage boys did this. The both snow board so they wanted to try wake boarding. The guide (Mike?) got my youngest up on his first go! A few more successes before the rain came over so we got a free rescheduled booking for the next day when my other son was up within a few goes and loved it. Towels were provided, the boat was gorgeous and the coaches/drivers were so friendly and helpful. An excellent way to spend an afternoon. Totally recommend this.

    Parasailing is something I have always wanted to do and I am extremely glad I did it with the sammy duvall team! They are very friendly and very efficient. They are also very safety oriented and make you feel like you're in the best hands. I'm deathly afraid of heights and they soothed my nerves perfectly reassuring me that it was more of a relaxing ride than an extreme one, they also told me where to look before I went up in the Parasail and this made my experience a hundred times better. I am so glad I went with the Deluxe flight as you can see almost all of Orlando and the extra time really does make a difference. I loved every single part of my experience and plan on taking my father parasailing for his birthday! This is definitely a hidden gem!

    The staff was very friendly. I arranged for this for my son graduation present and he had a terrific time, I've never seen him so happy. It was the highlight of this trip to Orlando. This is a must, Nice and clean boat as well. Its worth every dime.

    On our recent WDW vacation, I arranged for my 20 year old son and his 21 year old buddy to go on a tandem flight. It was truly the highlight of the vacation! My son had parasailed with Sammy Duvall before. His friend, who was a first time visitor to WDW, had never parasailed anywhere. My son was fine; friend was VERY nervous--until they took off! Then the smile was PRICELESS!! The crew was EXCELLENT and I'm so glad we go to tag along on the boat. BUY THE PICTURE PACKAGE!! SO WORTH it to have those priceless shots!! Couldn't have asked for a better experience all the way around We will be repeat customers!! Do this! You will NEVER forget it!!!
