Parasailing single, double or triple with Siesta Key Watersports will be the “Highlight” of your trip to incredible Siesta Key. The crystal clear waters off of Siesta Key Public Beach will be the starting point for your aerial adventure, culminating in an unbelievable view from up to high above the tranquil waters of Siesta Key. You will float effortlessly from our parasail canopy as you soar along with the gulls and frigates, peering down into the water, perhaps spotting some of our resident dolphins and manatees. From your lofty perch, you will be able to take in the fabulous view of Siesta Key, Sarasota, Lido Key and Longboat Key. The Intracoastal Waterway meanders throughout this backdrop, providing you with an unparalleled visual experience.
How it works:
Siesta Key Watersports utilizes the newest technology and systems to provide anyone with a safe, soft, controlled parasailing experience. Our state of the art vessels are built solely for your parasailing enjoyment and safety.
Up to 16 people can go out on the boat for the excursion. Up to three friends or family members can ride in the parasail together and share the moment—from a seated position on the back deck you will feel the boat pull away as you almost imperceptibly lift up into the air. The Kevlar towline is reeled out from a winch so smoothly that it feels as if the boat simply leaves you while your view becomes increasingly more beautiful as you climb higher and higher, leaving the gravity-bound world below.
For the more adventurous, we can provide an incredible experience we call a “free fall” where the captain slows the boat and lets you float down with the parachute until you almost touch the water, then he hits the throttle and up you come again! Of course, we can add a little “splash” as well, for those of you who prefer to cool off before returning to the deck.
Everyone lands softly back onto the deck as the captain reels the line back in, compelling the parachute to return to the boat every time. By the way, our captains are US Coast Guard certified and have years of parasailing experience.
Observers welcome on a space available basis.
Plan on enjoying approximately 2 1/2 hours with us for the entire boat trip.
