Parasailing in Daytona Beach is a fun, exhilarating activity that ensures your vacation won’t be quickly forgotten. These family-friendly sky trips offer single-, double- and even triple-seat rides, as well as breathtaking views of the area’s pristine coastline. So buckle up and get ready to set sail on an unforgettable flight with this Daytona Beach-area parasailing outfitter.
For a remarkable experience over the water, head to Daytona Beach Parasail and hop on one of the company’s U.S. Coast Guard-certified parasail boats. The licensed and experienced captains will launch in Ponce Inlet and take you as high as you dare with line extension options of 600 feet, 800 feet, 1,000 feet (the most popular choice) and, if you’re feeling especially bold, 1,200 feet! You’ll discover an entirely new side of Daytona Beach — and you won’t want to come down. But all good things must come to an end; expect your trip to take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes from launch to docking.
While in flight, you’ll soak in top-notch views of Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, not to mention the array of wildlife often visible from these heights. The Daytona Beach Parasail photography team goes out on each trip and will capture amazing photos of all the excitement —and you can take the images home for a fee. Better yet, opt to rent a GoPro helmet camera to relive the experience from your own perspective over and over again.
For your blue-sky experience, you’ll want to wear a bathing suit or shorts that you don’t mind getting wet — whatever is most comfortable for you. Need a lift? If you’re staying in any of Daytona Beach’s hotels, a courtesy shuttle is available to pick you up. All you have to do is call to make the arrangements!
You can easily order your tickets online, but make sure you call ahead and talk to the staff — an adventure like this is obviously highly weather dependent, and you want to make sure the winds are cooperative. The minimum age to take part in the adventure is five years old, and everyone who parasails must sign a waiver at the location. Other than that, there are not many restrictions on who can participate —no previous experience is needed, and this team has taken people into their 90s out on parasail rides! And if you’re not feeling the parasailing personally, you can still cruise on the boat and watch for just $20.
