Great experience! Omar and Jordan added to the perfect event. From the air (1,200 feet) we saw a sea turtle and dolphins. Will do this again on the next trip. Thanks SKWS for a perfect time.

Omar and Jordan provided us with an awesome parasailing experience. They were very personable and made you feel at ease with going 1200’ in the air. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend going out with them.

The only complaint I have about our visit revolves around the route out to the gulf. Siesta Key Watersports sets themselves apart from everyone else by letting you take their jet skis into the gulf...this is GREAT! The downside to this that you wouldn't know...More

I wish we could alter the no-wake zones and I have tried calling the authorities in Tallahassee, but everyone there seems to be an avid kayaker :)) Our rates are probably the lowest you will find anywhere. We have not increased prices for at least...More

We did both the jet skis and parasailing on 2 separate days. Both were easy to set up and worth every penny. Our group ranged from 14 to 60 and everyone had a blast! Parasailing was so smooth and absolutely relaxing coming from someone who’s...More
