Incorporating a parachute into any activity automatically makes it fun, whether it's a slow gym class or a run-of-the-mill zeppelin explosion. Apply this universal principle to boating with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a tandem parasail ride (a $140 value) at Paradise Parasail.
Paradise Parasail sends sightseers to new stratospheric panoramas on the wings of the boat-powered parasails. After strapping pairs of daredevils into the harness of a brightly colored parachute, one of Paradise Parasail's USCG-licensed captains speeds along four miles of coastline until the wind naturally hoists riders aloft while safely tethered to a 1,200-foot line. After reaching heights of to 400–500 feet above the water, riders can ooh and aah at the astounding views of Ft. Myers or the juicy gossip of migratory birds. Along the way, your captain will give you one thrilling free-fall dip that lets you wet your toes in the ocean. After returning to port, riders who purchase a commemorative action photo of their sky-surfing excursion receive half off their next parasailing outing.
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.
