So now that you know you are at the BEST place to parasail…..let’s get started!
HERE ARE SOME FACTS THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
TYPE OF RIDES: We do single, double and triple rides. The double and triple rides are side by side.
TAKE OFF/LANDING: Take off and land, safe and easy, from the back deck of the boat. You can stay dry or be dipped in the water before landing back on the boat.
HEIGHT: We have 1,200 foot of tow line and you will be about 500-600 feet in the air.
AGE: Parasailers must be at least 3 years old.
WEIGHT: The maximum combined weight per flight is 450-500 pounds. These amounts can change depending on the wind conditions on the day you fly!
ATTIRE: Since there is a chance you might get wet, we recommend that you wear your bathing suit or shorts. No shoes are allowed on the boat, so leave them on shore. During flight you will have on a life jacket and a parasail harness. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
TIME: The flight time is approximately 10-12 minutes.
RESERVATIONS: RESERVATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED! We have two parasail boats that usually leave on the hour. A charge card number is required to hold your reservation and you must arrive at least 20 minutes before your departure time! We require a 24 hour cancelation notice or your card will be charged. Walk ups are always welcome! Please call (850) 934-9743 to make your reservation.
PICTURES: We recommend that you bring your camera and let the crew member use it to take pictures from the boat. You might also want to bring a disposable camera to take pictures in the air!
PASSENGERS: Passengers are allowed on the boat, if there is room, for a minimum fee. All parasailers get preference over the passengers!
WAIVERS: All participants must sign a waiver. This includes the parasailers and the passengers on the boat. A copy of the parasail waiver can be found on the WAIVERS page. If you are bringing any minors on vacation with you that are NOT your children, please have the parents sign and notarize the forms so THEIR children can parasail.
WEATHER: Parasailing depends on weather and wind conditions. We cannot operate in winds greater than 20 MPH or when lightening or storms are approaching. In the event this happens, the captain will make the decision to continue or stop parasailing. If weather conditions become unsafe and we stop parasailing, you can either reschedule your ride or get a refund.
SAFETY: YOUR SAFETY ALWAYS COMES FIRST AT RADICAL RIDES!!!!! PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE PARASAIL SAFETY VIDEO.
