- $45 for one tandem parasail ride ($75 value)
During each parasailing adventure, duos take a roughly one-hour boat ride, ascending from the dryness of the boat to 300 feet above the water. Riders can stay dry from start to finish, or dip into the water to cool off.
Captain Alfons of ParaWest Parasailing knows the sky over Cayo Hueso almost as well as he knows its waters. For more than 10 years the Coast Guard–licensed captain has sent passengers into the crystal blue above the horizon, and dipped them into the crystal blue below. Although single and tandem rides begin and end on the dryness of the vessel, the captain and his CPR-trained crew dip riders into the water upon request. They also equip their participants with safety tips before takeoff, including such sage wisdom as "don't fly with scissors."
