What’s it Like to Parasail?

Estero Island Parasail takes riders by dingy from the beach to the speedboat where your parasailing adventure starts. You and your flying partners will be fitted with a parasail harness by friendly and professional staff. Sit down on the deck and a hydraulic winch will gently lift you up into the air. Before you have time to be nervous, you’ll be gazing down at the sandy beach, tiny hotels and miniature sunbathers far below. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the panoramic views and the experience of flying high beneath the colorful parachute canopy. 

When it’s time to descend, the boat slows and you are gently lowered closer and closer to the deck. The crew will catch you as you reach the boat and you put your feet down for a gentle touch-down on the deck. You’re sure to be exhilarated and ready to do it all over again!

If you want to try something new, there’s nothing quite like sunset parasailing. As the sun drops down towards the horizon, the colorful sky provides the perfect backdrop for your scenic flight, and the photos are amazing!
