This package is the best bang for your buck! Instead of riding the banana boat, we jet skid longer and parasailed. The experience and views we saw are worth the time to take. The crew was great, very informative and great with communication. My teenagers loved it!

Very conveniently located right behind our resort (Hotel Riu). Loved the jet skis and banana boats but parasailing was absolutely AMAZING!

We had a great day and everything went smooth! The weather was perfect and we had a great experience

Amazing experience! Worth every penny. A great memory from our trip to the Bahamas :)

Had a great time, staff made sure we were safe and taken care of.
