This was one of our best experiences that we've had in Disney. Great guide and awesome experience. Our guide was very knowledgable and gave the kids LOTS of tips.

I booked a de-luxe tandem parasail for my disabled sisters birthday, firstly they were late opening up so we had to wait 25 minutes. After filling out the waiver forms we were taken to the boat. There was another couple with us who went up first, whilst they were being sent up and during their trip the guy on the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a Trip Advisor review! We are sorry your experience with us did not meet your expectations. We know that Parasailing is a special experience and understand that not having a memory of it would be disappointing.

Friendly guide, nice watercraft, and just a real fun and exciting thing to do on a hot day while at WDW. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who may be looking to break up the monotony of walking the parks all day.

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... More

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.

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!

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... More

Parasailing has been something on my 'to do list' for a number of years. The opportunity arose when taking my family on a recent Disney vacation. My three grandchildren, ages 16, 12, and 8 were all up for the experience, so there was no turning back (grandpa wasn't about to bow out in front of three very enthusiastic, pumped children)....
