Have you ever wondered what it would be like to soar 500 feet above the open water? Wouldn’t it be peaceful to float high in the sky and take in spectacular views? If this sounds like something you would enjoy, then add Parasailing in Florida to your wish list. A Destin parasailing adventure might be perfect for you. Here are some of the frequently asked questions people ask our experienced crew about parasailing.
What does parasailing cost?
Prices will vary depending on the time of year. Parasailing prices ordinarily runs about $45 for 10 to 15 minutes in the air. Expect parasailing prices to go up an extra $20 during Spring Break. Do you want a memorable photo package to take home with you? It will add another $20 to your parasailing cost, but would be a great keepsake to have so you can relive your adventure whenever you want. Make sure that you don’t make your decision entirely based on price, as your safety may be in danger if you only go with the cheapest.
How high do you go when parasailing?
Height is something to think about before you go parasailing. Towlines are 800 feet in length, so how high do you go when parasailing? Parasailing height is actually limited due to FAA regulations. The FAA parasailing height limit is 500 vertical feet.
How old do you have to be to parasail?
If you are travelling with children, you may be asking the question “how old do you have to be to parasail”? Children need to be at least 6 years old in order to parasail. An adult must be present to sign a waiver for anyone between 6 and 18 years old. Anyone over the age of 18 can sign the waiver themselves.
What is the parasailing weight limit?
Another thing to think about before embarking is parasailing weight limit. This is one of the most frequently asked questions and for good reason. The average weight requirements are generally from 110 pounds to roughly 425 pounds. However, weight restrictions can change daily due to wind conditions. The Captain will give final approval on any weight issues.
What else should you know about parasailing?
You don’t have to have any experience before going parasailing. You might think that you take off from land or water, but you actually take off from and land on a boat. Two or three people can parasail at the same time, but weight limits will apply and weather conditions can cause restrictions. You will probably want to wear a bathing suit or shorts and a t-shirt. The only thing that might get wet is your fee. Allow about an hour and a half for your parasailing excursion. Boats generally take out about a dozen people at a time. Two or three people parasail at a time with each flight taking 10 to 15 minutes. Go early in the morning and there will be less boat traffic and more comfortable weather. A Destin parasailing adventure offers panoramic views from above that can be breathtaking. If you’re lucky, you might see dolphins or sea turtles along with tour boats and tourists enjoying beach activities. If you purchase a photo package, you’ll have the memory of parasailing in Florida as a wonderful keepsake to enjoy long after your parasailing adventure is over. Check out some of our photos here.
