While staying at the Pearl in SPI, we wanted to rent an umbrella and chairs for the day. After asking at the front desk, I was informed that rentals are not through the hotel but through Sonny's Beach Service. I was told that we could just give them our room number for the charges. We went to the stand and... More

I was definitely hesitating to go parasailing, but I managed to do it! Did the tandem with my boyfriend and I was very nervous at first, but after a few minutes I relaxed and enjoyed the ride. The experience was great and the guys on the boat were nice guys. The cost was lower than some of the other prices... More

These guys had a awesome couples special for parasailing $100. I had never been parasailing in my life and I must say its a must. Going about 700 feet in the air, looking at awesome scenery and enjoying the breeze. The staff was pretty awesome in the parasailing boat but the Taxi boat driver was pretty rude. Overall we had...
