Do you have to know how to swim in order to parasail?

Although it is best for you to be comfortable in the water, you do not have to know how to swim. Each guest is provided with a buoyancy compensator (BC) that will assist with flotation.

What happens if the line breaks?

The line is designed to withstand 10,000 pounds of pressure. The average parasail ride only produces 800 pounds. It is very uncommon for the line to break, but if it does, you are never in any danger. If the line should break, the parachute will slowly and gently bring the parasailers to the water. The parachute is designed to land in the water behind the parasailers, never on top of them. Your lifejackets will allow you to comfortably float as the boat will immediately pick you back up.

How do we get into and out of the air?

Our brand new custom built parasail boats will allow a smooth and easy takeoff and landing. Each parasailer, or tandem, will slowly lift off the back of the boat from the sitting position with ease, as you enjoy the ride in a comfortable swing-like harness. Each parasailer, or tandem, will softly land on the back of the boat in the sitting position. A dip in the water is optional, and recommended, but you will always take off and land from the boat.

Is there a price difference if two or three people fly together?

The prices are all per person. Whether you fly with someone, or alone, the prices are per person. We always do our best to accommodate your requests; however, safety is our number one priority.

Can people go on the boat and watch?

Yes. The cost for non-flying observers is $10. However, we do not accept reservations for observers. Parasailers always have first priority. At the time of departure, if there is room available, we allow a limited number of observers due to the United States Coast Guard regulations.

Is there an age requirement?

Yes, the minimum age to parasail is 6 years old. Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign their liability waiver prior to boarding the vessel. Minimum weight required to parasail is roughly 90 pounds. If the flyer is less than 90 pounds, they will simply fly tandem with someone not to exceed roughly 450 pounds combined weight. Weight requirements may change on any given day due to the wind conditions. Again, safety is number one.

Are there any weight restrictions?

Minimum weight to fly alone is 90 lbs; Not exceeding 450 lbs in tandem or triple. (The captain may change these safety restrictions due to weather conditions.)

Do I ever touch the water?

The entire experience can be completely dry. If requested, we will provide a “dip” in which we simply lower the parachute toward the water, which allows you to have your feet or bottom touch the water. You will then be lifted back up and continue the ride as usual. This is definitely recommended.

Do you offer Wi-Fi on the bus ride to Key West?

Yes, we are pleased to offer free onboard WiFi. Due to the nature of the technology, we are not responsible for interruptions of service that are beyond our control.
