General

Where are you located? How do I get there?

+

We are located in Robbie’s of Islamorada marina at 77522 Overseas Hwy, Islamorada, FL 33036. You can get to Islamorada by car or shuttle bus from either Miami International Airport or Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. There is plenty of information on the web about how to get here, but if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.


What time should I arrive for the snorkeling/sunset cruise/parasailing activity?

+

We ask that all our guests be present at our office at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time. That way we can make sure we have everything and are ready to go so you don’t miss out on a minute of your activity. Please note: if you are visiting us during the holiday season, please allow for more time to find parking.


Is there parking available nearby? How much does it cost?

+

Yes, there is ample parking nearby, and it’s free to park!


Is there anything that you don’t have that I definitely need to bring?

+

We do not have towels at all, so please do not forget to bring one (and some sunscreen)!


Do I need prior experience to participate in any of your activities?

+

Nope! Our activities are for novices and experts alike. We will provide you with all the resources you need.


Where can I leave my stuff?

+

There is plenty of storage on the boats, but if you have shopping bags from a day visiting the many wonderful vendors within Robbie’s, we have room in the office for your treasures.

Islamorada Snorkeling

What makes Islamorada the best place to go snorkeling?

+

Islamorada is home to the healthiest reefs of the Keys, and we visit about 14 of them on our snorkeling trips (we’ll choose a couple of spots on each outing). Our reefs are about 4-15 ft deep, and best of all, they aren’t crowded!


Is the water cold? Is it ok to come anytime during the year?

+

The water is always fine in paradise! During the colder months (typically November through February), the water can get down to about 60-70°F, so sometimes guests want to use wetsuits. We have these available for rent so that you are as comfortable as possible snorkeling.

Islamorada Sunset Cruise

Is there a lot of activity on this cruise? By the end of the day, I’m exhausted!

+

Don’t worry, we get it! That’s why we take care of it all — so you get to just sit back, relax, and sip on a cocktail or two.


Are kids allowed on this cruise?

+

Absolutely! We are all about enjoying experiences together, so we welcome guests of all ages aboard for this cruise.


Will I get wet on this cruise?

+

We sure hope not! This cruise is for pure relaxation, so just relax with your favorite cocktail and enjoy the views.


Is alcohol included in the price of the tour?

+

The trip includes soda, bottled water, and a champagne toast at sunset. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase on board by cash or credit card.


Will food be served on the cruise?

+

We do not serve food, but you are welcome to bring your own snacks aboard!

Islamorada Parasailing Experience

Is parasailing only for adventurous people? Is it safe?

+

Parasailing is an activity that absolutely everyone can try out safely. At Sundance Watersports, we liken it to a hot air balloon ride, not being on a rollercoaster.

As with any activity on the water, there are always some assumed risks. However, based on data from the Water Sports Industry Association, you are four times more likely to be struck by lightning than be injured in a parasailing accident in the United States. We have a 100% safety record!


How long am I going to be in the air?

+

We’re very happy to say we have the longest flight in the Keys! You’ll be in the air for 12 to 15 minutes, which is double the time that most parasailing companies will give you.


How high do you fly?

+

We, like all Florida parasailing operations, are limited to 800 ft of towline, which theoretically limits the flight to 400 ft. We’ll pull you to the “top” for a few moments, but most of your flight will be between 125-300 ft. That way, you have the best views of the area as well as the dolphins and sea turtles swimming below.



Can I fly over the lighthouse?

+

Although we love to fly by the lighthouse, we also love our passengers. So flights over the lighthouse will remain an urban legend.


What should I wear?

+

You can wear anything you like. We have flown guests in tuxedos, wedding dresses, and a whole lot less. Do keep in mind that there is always a chance that you will get wet, so if you don’t want it to get wet, don’t wear it! After all, we are called Sundance Watersports.


Will I get wet?

+

That part is mostly up to you. A fun part of the flight is the dip in the ocean, but it is definitely optional. For those worried about a soggy ride in the rental car, may we recommend just dipping your toes?


How long is the trip in total?

+

The total actual trip length depends on the number of fliers, but plan on an hour dock to dock.


How many people can fit on the boat?

+

Our parasail boat, Aw Chute, is Coast Guard-certified to carry 12 passengers. That includes both fliers and riders, but not our captain and crew.


Do I have to pay extra for the captain’s corny jokes?

+

No, the corny jokes are free! Occasionally, the captain tells a good joke, and those come with a small fee. Actually, that’s admittedly never happened… all of his jokes are corny.

Islamorada Corporate & Private Charter Bookings

What sort of events can you accommodate?

+

Anything and everything! Whatever your event is, we can find a way to work with it. In the past, we have worked with dinners, weddings, a variety of parties, team building activities, family reunions, and others. Just fill out our private charter inquiry form on this page, and we can get things figured out together from there.
