Parasailing Singer Island
Parasailing Singer Island
Looking to enjoy the crystal clear coast of South Florida? If so, it’s time to take your family and friends on a parasailing trip! Launching off the equally tantalizing Singer Island, a beautiful inlet located in Palm Beach County, we give you the ability to see the city and the breathtaking waters from above as we travel through the Atlantic together. Throughout the adventure, you can expect to see all the exciting sights and sounds that the Florida coast has to offer (and you may even see a dolphin or a stingray along the way). If you’re looking for a breathtaking, amazing experience and want to have a great time on your vacation, come join us on a flying ocean expedition today!
Stationed on our 12-person passenger boats, we lift two to three members of your party into the air at a time as the rest of your crew admires the view of Singer Island from below. If only a few members in your party are looking to take flight, we offer rider spots for $99 per person and observer spots for only $40 per person. However, You must book at least two spots in order to make a reservation on our website.
Are you only looking to watch?
We also offer spectator spots (when space is available) for $30. While you are more than welcome to bring your phones or cameras with you as you ride, we recommend that you purchase our $35 photo package to avoid any potential damage to your belongings. Whether you are booking a romantic sunset cruise for you and your significant other or want to show your kids what it’s like to parasail, this is a perfect adventure for everyone.
What can we expect to see?
From West Palm Beach to North Palm Beach to Peanut Island, our sailing experience gives you an amazing view of both the nearby city and the beauty that the Atlantic Ocean has to offer. As a flyer on our boat, you may get to see some of the amazing animals that inhabit the sea as well as the many people snorkeling or doing a water sport below, the amazing skyline and bustling activity of West Palm Beach, and everything in between. Young or old, every flyer is guaranteed to enjoy the view from above.
Once you reach the shore, you can explore everything that Singer Island has to offer. Whether you want to stay in a cabana or book fancy hotel rooms with all of the amenities that you could want, go shopping for some souvenirs, or try some of the amazing food places located on land, Florida is open to you.
How long does each flight last (and how high do you take us)?
When you book a session with us, you can expect to be out at sea for around an hour to an hour-and-a-half. This doesn’t mean you are in the air for that long, however! Each tandem ride is designed to only last around 10 to 12 minutes. Besides the duration of your flight, many riders also want to know how high they go during the experience. When you ride with us, you can expect to reach heights of around 800 feet. This will give you a stunning view of the coast, the ocean, and the nearby Singer Island. While you will be high in the air, you don’t have to worry about having a bumpy or scary ride during your first time. Many people leave their worries behind once they are in the sky and may even want to come back for another parasailing adventure during their next trip to the palm beach area!
How does it work?
Many people have been on the water during a vacation experience, whether that is on a jet ski for adventure watersports, a kayak for a calm adventure, or even going tubing in the water down the rapids. Each of these may come with their own risks, however, especially activities that involve adventure watersports.
A Parasailing adventure, on the other hand, is extremely safe and is much different than what many people imagine. Once you are strapped in and ready to go, you are slowly raised into the air until you reach the maximum height. When your experience has come to an end, you will slowly be pulled back towards the boat, landing safely back on the platform. All of the equipment that goes into the process is rigorously tested for your safety so that you can enjoy your experience and have a great time.
Are there any age or physical limitations?
We welcome anyone older than the age of six to join us. If your child is 15 or younger, they must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. If you have a child who is aged 16 to 18, accommodations on our part have been made so that they may come on board a parasailing boat without a parent or guardian as long as they have a valid photo ID and a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. In regard to health concerns, we recommend that women who are expecting and past their first trimester should wait until after they have given birth to book a reservation with us.
Some other common physical and health-related questions that people have include:
- Are there any minimum or maximum weight requirements for riders?
- Will motion sickness be a problem while I am in the air?
- Can I go if I have neck, back, or spinal problems or if I have suffered from injuries in the past?
- Is it possible for people with heart conditions to go on these kinds of excursions?
If you have any of these concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to us to learn more! We want to make sure accommodations are able to be made but that you are still safe in the process.
Is there any swimming involved?
If you don’t feel like getting wet, you don’t have to! Both take-offs and landings during a parasailing adventure are conducted through a platform on the back of our boats so that you don’t have to get into the water at any time during the experience. If the boat happens to malfunction during your ride, the chute will carry you to safety and your life vest will keep you afloat while we bring you back on board. If you do wish to dip your toes in the water while you are coming back in, let your captain know!
Do I need to have any experience to book a spot with you?
Absolutely not! All you have to do to take part in the experience is to sit back and relax. If you can do this, you are guaranteed to have a great time.
What should I wear during the experience?
This will depend on how the weather is when you book your reservation. If it is a cooler day out or if you are booking a later reservation for that romantic sunset cruise with your husband, you will most likely want to wear long pants and something with long sleeves to keep you warm as you ascend into the air. If you book a ride during a hot summer day, however, you may want to go in swimwear instead. It is important that you wear something that can get wet in the event of an emergency. With this in mind, you should also avoid bringing anything up with you that could get damaged if it were to touch the water.
$99 Per Flyer
$40 Per Observer
Parasailing Singer Island Location
A: No, both the take-off and landings are done from a platform on the back of the boat. In the unlikely event of a boat malfunction, the chute will gently drift the flyers down to the water where your mandatory life jackets will keep you afloat.
Q: Will I get wet?
A: Not if you don’t want to. It is your choice as a flyer if you’d like to dip your feet in the water before safely landing on the platform. If you do not wish to touch the water at all, please ask the captain for a dry landing.
Q: Do I need to have any prior experience?
A: No prior experience is needed. If you can sit down and relax, you can parasail!
Q: How many people can parasail at the same time?
A: Our safety equipment allows for 2-3 people to fly side by side.
Q: Can I bring my own camera while I am flying?
A: Yes you can at your own risk. We have seen many cameras and phones find a new home at the bottom of the sea. We offer a photo package for just $35 if you’d like to be on the safer side. We are not held liable for any lost property while you are parasailing.
Q: Should I tip the crew?
A: Absolutely, all of our captain and crew’s income is primarily based on gratuity. If you have enjoyed your trip please don’t forget about the crew.
Q: Is there an age requirement for parasailing?
A: Any child must be at least 6 years of age to parasail. Children 15 years and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Children 16-18 may be unaccompanied while on the parasailing trip as long as they bring a valid photo ID and have a parent or legal guardian present to sign the waiver.
Q: Can I ride on the boat if I am not going to fly?
A: Yes, we do offer a spectator price of $30. This is based on availability.
Q: Can I go if I am Pregnant?
A: We allow women in their first trimester to parasail at their discretion. After the first trimester we believe it would be safest to parasail after the baby is born.
