Have you ever wondered what it is like to soar 400 feet above the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico? To feel the warm breezes on your face and float high over the waters while taking in the sky and all of the spectacular views? You can do all of those things when you book a Destin parasailing adventure with Just Chute Me!
The best part is you do not even need to be an expert to experience the fun of parasailing on your own. You can have all the fun of sailing high over the waters by yourself or in groups of two or three people. If your kids are age 6 or older, they will love parasailing in Destin, FL. It is one of our most popular water sports.
Questions You May Have About Parasailing Destin and the Surrounding Area
If you are brand new to parasailing, here are some frequently asked questions to put your mind at ease.
How long are the rides and what is the cost? From start to finish, parasailing takes about 1.5 hours. Each of our parasailing boats holds 12-15 passengers, all of whom take turns flying two or three at a time. Rates vary throughout the seasons, so be sure to check out our Rates & Info page.
When is the best time to go parasailing? Believe it or not, early morning is the best time to parasail. You may not feel like rising early on vacation, but you might make an exception when you see why. Mornings mean the air is calm, temperatures are in the mid-70s, and boat traffic is at a minimum.
How high will I get when parasailing? The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) limits how high you can go on an 800 ft towline, which is about 400 feet high, but believe us, that is high enough to see everything around you.
What will I see when parasailing? There is plenty to see from high in the air. Expect dolphins, stingrays, sea turtles, fishermen, tour boats, an array of beach umbrellas and lots of tourists waiting their turn.
Can I go on the boat even if I don’t want to parasail? Yes, you can tag along if we have space available, for a small fee.
Will I get wet while parasailing Destin? That is up to you. Just let your Captain know if you would rather stay dry or get your feet wet.
Is parasailing scary? Parasailing in Destin is one of the most peaceful ways to enjoy your time with us. Taking off and landing are very gentle. Parasailing high in the air gives you a wonderful feeling.
What about weight restrictions? Minimum combined weight is 90 lbs. The maximum combined weight is 450 lbs. For those under age 18, a parent or guardian must sign a liability waiver. Weight requirements may change due to wind conditions and are also subject to our Captain’s approval.
