$70 for a Tandem Parasail Ride for Two ($140 Value)
After boarding boats, two adventurous riders saddle into the comfortable, swing-like harness of a tandem parachute. Winds lift the smiley-emblazoned chutes gently into the air before boats whisk them across the scenic shores of Fort Myers Beach at heights of up to 1,200 feet. Before the end of the flight, riders have the option of freefalling into the water, either to gently graze its surface or to relive Jacques Cousteau's worst day ever and plunge beneath its waves. A professional photographer accompanies groups to document the event with photos or videos. Customers may purchase images and videos for an additional fee, and those who choose to do so will receive a 50% discount on future rides.
Since launching off from the shores of Fort Myers Beach In 1982 and Lake of the Ozarks in 1983, Paradise Parasail's signature smiley-face parachutes have become an iconic image in the sky, now flying high above the waters of both the Gulf of Mexico and the Lake of the Ozarks. USCG-licensed captains navigate each of the company's boats as riders trail behind at heights of up to 500 feet. With feet flopping in the wind, thrill-seekers are free to wave to their friends, family, and nearby migratory birds. Parasailers can also pose for photos and videos captured by the company's onboard photographers.
