What You'll Get
Parasailing provides participants a comfortable way to see the watery earth from a vantage point formerly only known to cannon-launched clowns. See the world from above with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a premium parasailing flight for one person (up to an $80 value) at Siesta Key Watersports in Sarasota.
Siesta Key Watersports specializes in a variety of aquatic pastimes, each of which utilizes a Coast Guard–certified captain. The two-hour parasailing expedition allows flight enthusiasts and H2O lovers alike a chance to take in sweeping views of Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota Beach, Lido Key, and Longboat Key from a sky perch. The airborne adventure begins after being gently lifted upward in a high-quality parachute from the back deck of the boat until reaching heights of up to 1,200 feet above the sea level. Up to three people (depending on weight; each Groupon covers one person) can parasail at once, giving friends some airtime to gossip about the very noticeable bald spot on every dolphin's head before descending gently back to solid boatland.
Though Siesta Key Watersports sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
- It was amazing! It felt like we were just floating off the boat and eventually to a distance of 1200 feet above the Gulf of Mexico with amazing views of Siesta Key and the Gulf of Mexico. It was so incredibly peaceful and serene! The fifteen minutes in the air went very fast! This was an event that we will remember for years! – dgsurdez, TripAdvisor
- The staff here was great. They were friendly and professional [sic]. – Johnny6183, TripAdvisor
