    "BEST HOUR LONG TOUR EVER!!"
    TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
    Reviewed September 22, 2016 NEW

    Over many years of travel we've done a lot of sight seeing tours. This tour in our opinion was one of the most unique, fun ways to see the numerous Disney properties around Bay Lake. Our guide was excellent and made a first time jet skier like me feel very comfortable and safe. There was plenty of time to rip it up on the water and regular breaks that were filled with fun Disney facts and trivia. This was definitely money well spent and we would encourage anyone to do the jet ski tour if your interested in doing something truely unique and fun!!

    My wife and I had never parasailed before. I assumed that the wind would be rushing by and it would be loud. I was amazed at how peaceful and relaxing it is.

    Dave and Alex were absolutely phenomenal! They really made the experience for myself and my group! I had a few people that were nervous about the experience, but they honestly made them feel comfortable and excited about parasailing. They are so knowledgeable and great with their jobs! Safety is their number 1 priority. I HIGHLY recommend Sammy Duvall's to anyone.

    "parasailing was the best part of the trip"

    Captain Dave and Alex were great. Went parasailing with the family today (9/12/2016) and it was amazing from start to finish. They let me wear the GoPro on my wrist while I was in the air and were both great with our 9 year old girl. Will definitely be going again when we come back to Disney!

    "Great time!"

    We went a tandem 8-10 minute parasail on Sept 6th. Dave was great, pointing out all the sites while we were on the boat and driving the boat while we were up in the air, while Trent kept us safe fitting the harnesses and life jackets and taking photos. As someone who is scared of heights I must say I felt really safe and secure and not at all frightened or worried about doing the parasail. I would definitely do it again and would recommend it to anyone.
