I planned for weeks to take my fiance parasailing. I booked this surprise at the Timer Cove Marina location in south shore, and arrived early as they asked to fill out paperwork as they requested. We met all of their requirements, and we went along with another couple who we did not know. The fact that we had to share this experience with someone else was not conveyed to us at the time of our booking.

When we got out to the middle of the lake, the captain's assistant, who had no experience, asked us which one would like to go first while the other couple was already up in the air. We told him that we only wanted to go up together. He talked it over with the 'captain' - Neil who said that there was not enough wind to take the both of us up in the air. We protested this, as there was already another couple in the air, but he would not budge on his decision. He wasted an hour of our time and we ended up going back to the pier without so much as an apology.

I was issued a refund, but the manager, John, did not try to rectify the situation nor did they apologize for wasting our time or telling us beforehand that we would not be able to parasail together.

Funny enough, one block down at Ski Run Marina, we were able to parasail together without any condition on winds or some lame excuse and when we told them of our experience at action water sports, he upgraded us 600 feet more at the same price for having to deal with such unprofessionalism.

Oh, and while we were waiting to dock the boat at Action after our disappointing hour, we watched yet another unexperienced crew member try to take 16+ guys plus 4 coolers full of beer on a boat meant for 12 maximum and would not have corrected this until another crew member called him out in front of all of the guests and other crew members who looked right past this behavior.

Completely unprofessional, rude, inexperienced and have no idea what the hell they are doing or talking about. Your money is better spent at another company and not at risk with people who only care about bringing in $$, even at the expense of other's safety or false advertisement. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE!!!

Experience an awesome thrill of para sailing over Lake Tahoe. The views are spectacular and you enjoy your quiet and serene ride at 10 to 1200 feet in the air! Para sailing is safe, fun and easy. No special skills are required and anyone can do it. You can fly solo or tandem. There is a gentle tug at the launch and landing from a boat and you can stay dry or be dipped in the water. Some companies will allow family and friends to ride along in the boat if there is room. I highly recommend para sailing and Action Watersports are very efficient and professional.
