Check in was simple and we were able to park on their site. Booked a tandem parasail with the photo package. We shared the experience with 2 other couples and headed out to sea on schedule. We were airborne for approx 10 mins which was just about right. Well organised, and safe for all abilities and ages. Do wear a... More

Today my 16 year old son and I went on a wave runner tour. We both had an incredible time, he loved driving the wave runner and I loved being the passenger and enjoying the beautiful scenery. We stopped for 20 minutes at a beautiful beach on North Captiva where there was an abundance of shells and saw many dolphins... More

Upon arriving in town we rented 3 bikes for the family. It was toward the end of the day and they jumped in the truck and delivered our bikes for us. We were staying at the far end of South Seas Resort so we rode the bikes every morning for our morning Starbuck's ++ (just under 4 miles) Another day... More

My son and I went on our second parasailing trip a few weeks ago and had an amazing time. The folks at YOLO are so nice and professional. They were in contact with us to adjust our schedule because the weather was a bit too windy during our assigned time. We were able to bump a few hours and get... More

I had always thought that parasailing looked like fun but was concerned that upper body strength would be a limiting factor since I am a senior citizen. Not an issue. You are secured into a harness and gently lifted off the stern of the boat with little or no body strength required. Once up under the parachute it is peaceful,... More

Rented a 6 passenger golf cart here. Cart was in good shape and satisfied its purpose. Not sure if would need to rent one again when coming back to the island. Staff didn't seem really interested in helping or not helping, they were just "there". Kinda strange.

You can rent bikes, golf cars, and watersport equipment. The downside is you have to pick up and return your bikes to the store which is inconvenient when you are staying at the South Seas Resort. However, nobody but Billy's delivers bikes that I'm aware of.

Rented a hybrid bike for the day. Staff was helpful but seemed disinterested. Sent me out on a bike that was low on air in tires. Gearing slipped in two of the three sprockets up front and the helmet was worthless. The bike itself was fine for a 20 mile jaunt around the island but clearly some TLC was missing.... More

They have it all. We rented our bikes, jet ski, beach wagon, and have bought many essentials at YOLO. Great people who provide exceptional service. Always happy to help and never any problems.
