Getting Ready to go Parasailing
There’s not a lot you’ll need to do or have to go parasailing. That’s the beauty of it! It’s an easy, fun activity that pretty much anyone can enjoy. You don’t need any special equipment — the Keys Skis & Adventure team will provide all of that so we can be sure it’s safe, secure, and ready to go when you arrive for your parasailing tour.
That being said, you will want to do a bit of prep before you come. The most important thing is that you’ll be out in the sunshine, so slather on the sunscreen! Don’t expect to rely on the parasail for shade; it may provide some relief from the sun, but otherwise, there won’t be much to protect you from getting burned by the sun’s rays beating down. You’ll also want to plan what you wear with care. Wear clothing that is comfortable, but not too loose. The wind can kick up, so you don’t want to worry about a shirt that’s so loose it blows up into your face around the harness. Lastly, plan on strapping down any loose accessories. Hats, sunglasses, and even flip-flops can easily blow away in the wind, so choose shoes that strap or lace securely and invest in cords or other ways to secure your glasses/sunglasses and hats.
But What If I Hate Heights?
This is an important question to ask! Parasailing is a great activity for most people, but we understand that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. The good news is that parasailing is a secure and relaxing way to push your limits if you have fear of heights. You’ll be raised and lowered slowly, which can help reduce the anxiety that comes along with the height. In addition, we do offer a tandem parasailing option, so you can bring someone along to keep you company. If you have concerns about how it works, we encourage you to give us a call and learn more. We’re more than happy to answer your questions, provide a more in-depth explanation of how parasailing works, and give you the information you need to decide whether it’s worth the chance. We think it’s a great option, even for people who struggle with heights, but we are a bit biased in knowing just how fun it is!
