Overview

Go parasailing and get a bird’s eye view of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches!! Fly in the air with Paradise Watersports! Parasailing with Paradise Watersports is the most exciting way to see Panama City Beach! Imagine yourself soaring high above the Gulf of Mexico, taking in the beauty of the beach, the water, and the sky! You can go parasailing alone or in tandem, usually up to the Captain’s discretion, so bring your friends and family and make this a parasail ride to remember. They will be chatting about it for months!! The whole experience takes approximately 1 hour from the time you leave to the time you get back. During your parasail flight, you will experience: A 1 mile ride and 1 dip on 600ft of rope (optional extension of time and number of dips available at time of purchase). To your left is Panama City Beach and all the people enjoying and relaxing in their beach chairs! Below you see our wave runners and banana boats racing across the water. To the right, the horizon that is paved with the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You may see various wildlife such as coastal birds, dolphins, sea turtles, and much more! At Paradise Watersports, your satisfaction is a top priority, but your safety, is our #1 priority! Our boats have complete hydraulic winches that ease you into the air right off the back of the boat and then reel you back in when your ride is complete. It’s like flying a kite with a fishing pole. Each person should purchase their own ticket, regardless of if you wish to fly tandem or solo. We do it all! From the take-off on the back of our parasail boats to a perfect landing. Our crew is there to take care of YOU! We provide the best parasail rides on the beach. Take in the beauty of Panama City Beach from a whole new perspective…above!
