Are you an adrenaline junkie that loves things like roller coasters, bungee jumping, and skydiving? If so, you’ve probably already started checking out the parasailing options around Key Largo. If the idea those activities makes your knees start shaking in fear, well, parasailing may still be a great option for you! Just hear us out.
It Feels Like Flying
For many, the idea of skydiving is a fun one because of the views, it’s just the falling part that invokes terror. Well, if the idea of flying appeals to you, parasailing is a great option. The sail hoists you up into the air and keeps you up there. You’ll be able to feel the sea breeze flow through your hair and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the surrounding landscape. It’s about as close to flying as you can get without growing wings. And parasailing isn’t skydiving; there is no free-fall to get down. Instead, the tow line will be reeled in until you land gently back in the boat.
It’s Actually Pretty Serene
It may seem like a thrill ride better suited for the adrenaline junkies, but parasailing is actually a gentle and relaxing experience. If you want a bit more excitement, you can talk to your parasailing guide about dropping low enough to dip your feet in the water. If that doesn’t appeal, you can just sit back in the harness and enjoy the ride. You won’t need to steer or otherwise control the sail. You’ll simply make the gradual rise up into the air then float along for the duration of your ride. It can even be a kid-friendly activity, but you’ll want to ask your parasailing guide for more specifics.
Fly Solo Or Not
If you’re looking for a way to spend time with family and friends, parasailing is a great option. You can go up on your own or choose to go tandem with another person. When you aren’t up in the air, you’ll get to enjoy the boat ride along with the other passengers. This can be a great way to have some fun with your family or friends. Or, if you’re looking for a way to get away, take a tandem trip with your sweetie. It’s even a great option for a romantic and memorable proposal!
You Don’t Need Extra Equipment
Many of the activities available around Key Largo can get expensive because they require some sort of equipment. Many activities require lessons or additional gear on top of the rental fees. With parasailing, on the other hand, you can come as you are. No lessons or special equipment needed — though you may want a strap to secure your sunglasses in case the wind picks up!
