Parasailing West Palm Beach
Looking for fun on your next trip to West Palm Beach? Go for an activity that’s thrilling and outside-the-box and attempt a new water sport! When you parasail, you get to feel the rush of the wind and the ocean in your face as you have a great time outdoors in this high-octane activity. Whether you’re a flyer or want to watch your friends and family have a blast in the air, parasailing is an activity that’s fun for everyone.
There’s a reason that South Florida is recognized for its watersports by both locals and reviewers on Tripadvisor LLC. We know that there are plenty of choices when it comes to outdoor activities. While tubing, tours to watch for dolphins, and snorkeling are all worth your time, it’s hard to beat the thrill of a parasailing trip. When you parasail, you get to enjoy the beauty of Palm Beach County from up in the air. When you add the adrenaline rush of soaring through the air at high speeds harnessed to a parachute, it’s clear that parasailing is one of the best ways to experience Palm Beach.
Attached in a canopy wing and pulled from the back of a boat, you’ll soar above the ocean in a thrilling rush of adrenaline. Better than other boat tours in the area, parasailing allows travelers to see West Palm Beach from a completely new perspective. You don’t even need prior experience to have a great experience, as your guide will help fill you in on the particulars of how boat tours with parasails work.
Parasailing Palm Beach – How Do I Reserve My Spot?
Riding in a parasail is a thrilling activity that everyone should get to experience at least once in their lives. First, you’ll want to set up a reservation with the company running parasailing excursions, so that you know that you’ll have a spot saved. Keep in mind that Fort Lauderdale and other areas in south Florida waters, like Boynton Beach and Delray Beach, are very popular tourist destinations. Just as you wouldn’t want to look for last minute hotels in the area if you were looking for romantic hotels, you wouldn’t want to procrastinate on making your reservation if you wanted the best experience possible. When you set up your reservation, you’ll need to include how many riders you want on one trip. We offer up to two or three riders in tandem at once (known as doubles or triples). Even if there are members of your party that want to watch from the boat deck, only name the individuals who will be riding in your reservation on the date of experience. Keep in mind that any age requirements are also based on the date of experience and not on the date you reserve your trip.
Parasailing Palm Beach – How to Parasail
Once you’ve made your reservation and checked in, it’s time to sail! Parasailers used to have to launch from the beaches, but advancements in boats and parasailing technology have eliminated this rudimentary way of enjoying the watersport. Nowadays, someone like Captain Jason, Travis C, or Stephanie can have you launch from the back of the boat deck. You’ll be attached to a harness and jettisoned high into the air while being pulled behind a boat. Best of all, this enables a much more dry landing, since you’re able to land on the same boat deck that you launched off of.
Parasailing Palm Beach – Know Before You Go
Travelers looking to parasail do not need to have any prior experience in order to enjoy these kinds of adventure watersports.
Due to risks for pregnant women, parasailing, like other adventure watersports, is not recommended for women past their first trimester. If you are currently nearing the end of your first trimester but are still interested in taking a trip, please consult with your physician first.
The lowest weight per rider is usually about 90 pounds, although this can change based on weather and wind conditions. Remember that these rules are to ensure your safety and avoid a parasailing accident.
Children will need a legal guardian accompanying them on all parasailing trips. The total weight of the legal guardian and child generally shouldn’t exceed 450 pounds.
While a parasailing accident is unlikely, it’s vital that you always listen to your captain or guide. In the event of a parasailing accident, properly utilizing your safety equipment as instructed will protect you and decrease your risk of sustaining an injury. Just because a parasailing accident is unlikely doesn’t mean that the guidelines your captain gives you are only in the event of a parasailing accident. These regulations are in place to make sure that you don’t just have a nice ride; they want you to have an amazing experience!
Parasailing Palm Beach – Extra Add-Ons to Make Your Experience Even Better
Keep in mind that what you pay for your parasailing experience might go beyond just the fee per flyer. For example, you may want to purchase a photo package in order to preserve your memories. Much like the photographic keepsake you would get from a roller coaster ride, you’re bound to find some hilarious and exciting facial expressions from your flight. You may also want to pay the staff member who takes you out a gratuity which wouldn’t be included in the initial cost of your parasailing adventure. Knowing that you may end up paying a little bit more if you’ve had a truly great time can greatly improve your satisfaction since you won’t feel like you’re being hit up for extra money.
Parasailing Palm Beach – Make A Weekend Out of It!
Looking for a romantic way to spend your anniversary weekend? Consider a trip that combines staying in hotel class 4-stars hotels, dining at some of the best restaurants in Florida, and trying something new as a couple and enjoying a new watersport! A trip to Florida is also a great option for families with middle-school and high-school-aged children. Boca Raton is well-known for its beaches, parks, and golf courses, meaning there’s something for everyone in the area beyond the adrenaline rush of riding in a parachute above the ocean.

$89 Per Flyer
$40 Per Observer
A: No, both the take-off and landings are done from a platform on the back of the boat. In the unlikely event of a boat malfunction, the chute will gently drift the flyers down to the water where your mandatory life jackets will keep you afloat.
Q: Will I get wet?
A: Not if you don’t want to. It is your choice as a flyer if you’d like to dip your feet in the water before safely landing on the platform. If you do not wish to touch the water at all, please ask the captain for a dry landing.
Q: Do I need to have any prior experience?
A: No prior experience is needed. If you can sit down and relax, you can parasail!
Q: How many people can parasail at the same time?
A: Our safety equipment allows for 2-3 people to fly side by side.
Q: Can I bring my own camera while I am flying?
A: Yes you can at your own risk. We have seen many cameras and phones find a new home at the bottom of the sea. We offer a photo package for just $35 if you’d like to be on the safer side. We are not held liable for any lost property while you are parasailing.
Q: Should I tip the crew?
A: Absolutely, all of our captain and crew’s income is primarily based on gratuity. If you have enjoyed your trip please don’t forget about the crew.
Q: Is there an age requirement for parasailing?
A: Any child must be at least 6 years of age to parasail. Children 15 years and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Children 16-18 may be unaccompanied while on the parasailing trip as long as they bring a valid photo ID and have a parent or legal guardian present to sign the waiver.
Q: Can I ride on the boat if I am not going to fly?
A: Yes, we do offer a spectator price of $30. This is based on availability.
Q: Can I go if I am Pregnant?
A: We allow women in their first trimester to parasail at their discretion. After the first trimester we believe it would be safest to parasail after the baby is born.
