For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a 2,000-foot-high parasail ride from Daytona Beach Parasail in Ponce Inlet (a $100 value).
Daytona Beach Parasail’s U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captains navigate boats along the scenic coastline as fliers soar beneath a colorful parachute at heights of up to 2,000 feet. Passengers can defy gravity solo as they glide through the air, snapping photos of leaping dolphins and octopi playing complicated eight-limbed clapping games, or can pair with another Groupon holder or paying passenger for a tandem ride. The jaunt takes 45 minutes, including the boat ride-out, the flight, and the return; a solo soar lasts for eight minutes, while a tandem soar lasts for 14–16. Fliers of all ages can modify their altitude, either staying dry at windy heights or going low to dip toes in the water and playfully pet sharks on the head. Daytona Beach Parasail provides shuttle service to and from nearby hotels for no extra charge.
