Have a Blast Parasailing in Destin!

500 feet up while enjoying the most breathtaking views of the emerald green waters of the Gulf here in Destin. Along with the best service and most experienced crew we also offer the best rates in Destin. We load from our own private dock. There is no swimming or shuttle boat transfers. It’s safe and easy. We leave from our dock and return you to our dock. Ask us about our photo packages to help you share you amazing experience with friends and family alike. We use our state-of-the-art cameras equipped with high-powered zoom lenses to photograph you on your parasailing experience. After we return to the dock, you may pick up your photos on an SD Card so your memories never fade.


  • Do I need experience?

    You do not. It is simple. It is easy. Any age limits? Youngsters 6-18 years may parasail with the signed permission of their guardian. Passengers 18+ may sign for themselves. We have even had a lady 90 years old parasailing!

  • Are there any weight limits?

    This could change hourly or daily, but in general minimum is 90 lbs. and maximum is 450 lbs. The captain makes the final decision.

  • Do you do doubles (two at a time) or triples
    (three at a time)?

    Yes, we have special  equipment that makes it really comfortable to fly two or three people side by side.

  • Do you take off from the beach?

    That was in the “olden days.” Now we have specially built boats and equipment made for parasailing. You lift off from the back deck of the boat and you will also land on the boat deck.

  • Will I get wet?

    It’s choice. Just let the captain know. He will dip you in the water if you like.

  • Can we go along to watch?

    We do not reserve space for spectators in the busy season. If we have space available when the boat is leaving we will be happy to take you along.

  • How long does parasailing last?

    You will be on the boat from a hour to a hour and a half. The boat holds up to 12 and we take turns flying 2 at a time. For flying time see rates and information.

    Yes, we do this by phone 850.650.9000. We need your name, how many flyers and a major credit card (MC or Visa) to hold your spot. We require a 24 hour cancellation notice or you will be charges the full amount.
