Are you a thrill-seeker? Do you love adventure and the feeling of flying? Parasailing is one of the most exhilarating experiences offered on Key West as passengers soar through the air and have immaculate views of the island, the amazingly clear waters below, and the spectacular horizon for miles around. With such an opportunity awaiting, don’t hesitate to fit afternoon parasailing into your Key West experience.
An Exciting Afternoon
Parasailing in Key West is different than other locations due to its views. Not only do you have a bird’s eye view of the island with Fort Zachary Taylor, Key West Harbor and Mallory Square, and the miles of beaches, but you also have unobstructed views of the water. You’ll be able to spot shadowy figures swimming below, such as playful dolphins or gliding rays. And on clear days, at 31 feet in the air, you can see for up to 12 miles all around, catching sight of other islands, sailing ships and even cruise lines coming in to dock. And of course there’s the unforgettable feeling of flying with the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. With double passenger capabilities, you can view the island with your best friend, special someone or family member for shared memories that will last a lifetime.
Key West Afternoon Parasailing is one of our more popular single-activity options. Because we offer parasailing departures every hour in the afternoon, it’s the perfect way to add on to any of your other water-based or land-based activities. Head to the amazing coral reef in the morning and be back with plenty of time for parasailing before sailing to greet the famous Key West sunset. Or make up your own day of individual activities with a Key West Jet Ski Tour, Afternoon Parasailing, boat rentals and beach passes. Whatever you, your family, or your group decides, parasailing is one activity you won’t want to pass up.
For the safety of our passengers, riders must be older than 6 and weigh at least 100 pounds. Double riding is permitted, and triple riding is allowed at the captain’s discretion due to weather and wind concerns and weight restrictions. There is a 450-pound combined weight restriction for parasailing. Departures leave every hour, on the hour, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Up to 12 guests may be included in one parasailing outing.
What is the weather cancellation policy?

Where is the departure point for this tour?
Check-in instructions will be included in your activity confirmation email.
Where can I park?
There is metered parking available near the check-in facility.
Do you have to know how to swim in order to parasail?
No you do not, each guest is provided a life jacket that will assist with floatation
What happens if the line breaks?
The line is designed to hold up to 10,000 pounds of pressure. The average parasail ride only produces 800 pounds. It is extremely 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 life jackets 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 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.
Can people go on the boat and watch?
Observers/Riders can ask to board the boat at check in as long as there is space available at the time of departure. The cost for observers is $20. These spaces cannot be confirmed like normal reservations.
Do I ever touch the water?
You do have an option of either a dry landing or "dip" in which the parasailers will be lowered in the water.
Can three parasailers go up at once?
This is up to the captain's discretion but, yes, this is a possibility.
