Miami Parasail Excursions
Why Parasail in Miami?
Parasailing is one of those activities that you must try at least once in your life! Check it off your bucket list by booking your flight with us! Our professional staff will ensure a unique and memorable experience as you enjoy the breathtaking views of Miami Beach from the sky.
How Does the Parasailing Flight Feel?
Parasailing is not scary and will not give you that shortness of breath feeling that you may get while riding on a roller coaster. The whole flight is extremely smooth and peaceful, you will be surprised how quiet it can get up in the air. Participants will be taking off and landing back on the same boat, getting wet is optional but voted by many to be the best part of the flight! The whole trip may take up to an hour from start to finish depending on the number of participants joining.
Parasailing Photo Package
Make sure to add the picture package to your flight! Get up to 70 professionally taken pictures with a DSLR camera, capturing the highlights of your experience. Pick between either keeping the SD card or getting all of the photos transferred straight to your iPhone.

Our parasail team takes pride in keeping their boats in pristine conditions. Our company only utilizes top-rated equipment in the industry, running “CWS” Ocean Pro 31ft Parasail boat along with “Custom Chutes” state of the art safety equipment. Our vessels are Coast guard approved and deeply inspected before every trip. All equipment is maintained following the proper parasail safety regulation and is only repaired by the association’s most well-known and approved supplier “Custom Chutes”. Staff trainings are done frequently in order to stay up to date with the best methods recommended by the industry when it comes to safety.
Flyers must be a minimum of 5 years old to participate. We do not have a maximum age, however participant must be in good physical shape. Any medical conditions should be taken into consideration and the captain will make a final decision.
Flight time is standard in this industry, ranging between 7-12min depending on the weather. Total boat ride can take up to an hour depending how many other flyers are on the boat.
Max weight per Parasail flight cannot exceed 450lbs.
Getting wet is optional, however very recommended and voted the best part of the experience. You can pick whether just getting your feet wet or up to your chest!
We offer single, double, and triple flights. The vessel can carry 12 paying passengers. Keep in mind that single flyers may be paired with other flyers for weight requirements.
You can go fully dressed if you decide not to get dipped at all. However, if you want to get wet, make sure to bring a bathing suit. We also recommend wearing a hat and sunglasses.
Enjoy the boat ride without actually going up in the sky. Keep in mind that if you change your mind, you may pay for the difference and still fly! Spectators are not guaranteed and only allowed if available space on the boat. Flyers will always get priority.
We offer a photo package for $35/ flight which includes up to 100 professionally taken pictures of your flight. You can either receive them on a 4 GB SD Card or have them transferred straight unto your iPhone.
Like all extreme sports there is a risk. All equipment is inspected daily and up to date with the newest technology. Captain/ crew are USCG approved and heavily trained for emergency scenarios. Miami Watersports has never had any severe accidents requiring medical attention since its opening in 2007. The risk is very low, you have more chances of getting knocked out by a falling coconut then going parasailing.
Not at all actually. Unlike that rush you get from roller coasters, parasailing gives you a smooth take-off and landing. The whole ride is very peaceful and actually smoother than on the boat!
We have a wide variety of parachute sizes to use depending on windspeed. 20mph is the max which we are allowed to fly in. It is the captain's call to decide if the weather will permit activity. Heavy rain/ thunderstorm will cause cancellation of activity.
Yes of course! Pay difference when you get back.
We parasail in the protected bay of Key Biscayne. It is much calmer then the ocean which will let you enjoy a smooth flight and be able to view all of Miami Skyline! Unlike the ocean where all you get to see is water, we will be able to view Miami Beach; South Beach; Downtown; and much more!
