We had 8 in our party and we all had a great time. The in-air ride time was the longest we've experienced after quite a few trips parasailing.

Captiva Watersports showed us to a great afternoon of parasailing with my wife and 3 teenagers. The boat was clean, contained plenty of safety equipment, and the captain and First Mate were very engaging. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed parasailing and jet skiing. Both times the staff was terrific, great equipment. Excellent instructions and direction. CWS was located right where we were staying, Tween Waters which made things that much easier.

From the first phone call to departing the boat the people at Captiva Watersports were awesome. The Captain and his first mate were a lot of fun, and the trip was spectacular. We will definitely book with them on our next visit.

Hi, Unfortunately we require our boats to stay docked at our location. We can try to make things run as easy as possible for you but you would need to come and go from Tween Waters.
