Parasailing on Panama City Beach
If you think you’re brave enough to glide high through the air over the water, here’s your chance to prove it! Panama City Beach is totally the best place on earth for parasailing – we dare you to find better views anywhere else! A parasail ride is without a doubt the experience of a lifetime and completely brag-worthy to your friends and family back home.
A parasail ride is also a way to see Panama City Beach from a whole new level – a seagull’s perspective! If you think the beaches are gorgeous with your feet in the sand, dude, just wait until you see them from above. Here’s the rundown.
You actually take off from the back of the parasail boat after the captain has shown you how everything works and given you all the safety information. Most parasail boat captains are United States coast guard licensed, and it goes without saying that all the equipment is top-notch and absolutely safe. You can either ride by yourself or go tandem, and you can even determine how high you want to go or if you are up for a dip or two in the Gulf. Hey, if you’d rather not, no-one will judge you! Chances are they will be too busy envying you for just getting off your sun lounger and going up there! You generally ride to approximately 600 feet but daredevils can ride up to 1200 feet or more. (You know who you are, and yes, we are duly impressed with your awesomeness).
Once all the technicalities are out of the way you just get to enjoy your adventure. If you’re nervous, don’t be! You’ll never forget doing this! Where else do you get to glide like a bird through the air and marvel at the awe-inspiring beach views? You can expect to see dolphins and other sea life too – so keep an eye out all around you. There are waterproof cameras available at all the parasail ticketing huts located along the beach, so you don’t even have to remember the ride from a mental snapshot. The more pictures you take, the more you can gloat, right?
After your flight the crew will reel you back in. Just don’t forget that your safety and comfort is priority, always. The parasail staff are super cool and will go above and beyond to make you feel safe and relaxed, and make sure you are having the time of your life. Plus it’s really easy to organize and doesn’t require a reservation. Adventures at Sea are located behind the Grand Panama Resort and you can pretty much just go and do it whenever the urge hits.
