Question Sammy Duvalls - Parasailing Questions

I emailed Sammy's with these questions, but I just got their standard reply email back.... and they didn't answer some of my questions. SO, I'm hoping that someone else may be able to provide me some answers....

My DS would like to parasail for his 12th birthday (we will be down there on his actual birthday) He weighs enough for the single person flyer, so that is not an issue. (he's about 5'6" or 5'7" and about 130#+ so he is not a little kid for being almost 12.... He's going to be one tall adult... just like mom and dad!)

I have the following questions that I am trying to figure out....

1.) What times does the parasailing run during the day? For those of you who have done this, what time do you/did you prefer? I was thinking first thing in the AM due to the unpredictable Florida weather in August.

2.) Our daughter who is 6 also wants to try this.... she will do a tandem with DH. What happens if she chickens out and we've paid for a tandem flight. I suppose that DS and DH could do it together. But they might be pretty close to the weight limits... (my son and DH are not small people!)

3.) What is the refund/cancellation policy

4.) How far in advance can I make reservations? Do I pay in full now, or is it held on a credit card until the actual day?

5.) I would like to be on the boat to get some video but they told me that flyers take priority. Has anyone ever been denied to board the boat IF the rest of their family is flying. I'm not sure if I am brave enough to do this.... I think once I would be up there I would be fine... it's just the getting up there point that scares me..... I think the video and photos would be spectacular from up there.

6.) How far up do they actually take you? Is it in feet or is it rope length that they figure this from? (not sure what that means but my DH said for me to ask)

Any other tips that anyone could provide would be appreciated.
