I have had fun at this location for years. Unfortunately, a boat caused great injury to a customer. They are now out of business, most likely forever. There is no other business at this Beach location any longer.

We had a great time parasailing. Paid $64 per person (with tax), which includes a banana boat ride out to the parasailing boat and back. Captain Red and his team were efficient in getting us up into the air quickly and we were up there...More

The Jet ski was awesome! Just make sure you dont wear just your bathing suit. If youre a female, i would recommend wearing some shorts overtop of your swimwear.
