Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Forgo filth for clean aquatic action with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a 2,000-foot-high parasail ride (up to a $100 value) from Daytona Beach Parasail Inc. in Ponce Inlet.
Daytona Beach Parasail's expert staff of coastal cruisers harnesses the wind to set seafarers soaring in a multiperson aircraft. Hanging beneath a giant parachute, high fliers glide above the world, safely attached to a boat guided by a U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captain.
At 2,000 feet, air-sailors gaze at the crystalline expanse of the ocean and gain a bird's-eye view of Poseidon's wonders, including schools of flying fish and dolphin debate teams. Each tour lasts roughly 45 minutes, including the boat ride out, flight, and return, with about eight minutes of airtime. Groups of two or three can parasail in tandem so that family members, cubicle mates, and conjoined Elvis impersonators can share their adventure.
