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 100 professionally taken pictures with a DSLR camera, capturing the highlights of your experience. Pick between either keeping the 4gb SD card or getting all of the photos transferred straight to your iPhone.

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!

  • Is wind/ weather a concern?

    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.
