Where to Enjoy Parasailing Fun in Destin

For a day outdoors, enjoy some parasailing fun. As you glide through the air, you may spot dolphins, sea turtles, and other exciting marine life. The best places for parasailing near our apartments in Destin include:

Gilligan's Watersports

With Gilligan's Watersports, you'll enjoy "parasailing above the crystal clear waters of the Emerald Coast." You will take in incredible views and may see stingrays, dolphins, and other wildlife for an adventure you won't soon forget. For added fun, Gilligan's Watersports also offers pontoon boat rentals. You can drive the boat yourself or ask for a skilled captain who will show you a good time on the water.

Destin Parasailing

If you know how to swing, you will have no problem parasailing with Destin Parasailing. USGC-certified captains lead every adventure. Their boats hold up to 12 passengers. Flights depart every 90 minutes between 8:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Private parasailing charters are also available. They are perfect for weddings, birthday parties, and other special events.

Sun Dogs Parasail

The winner of Tripadvisor's coveted "Traveler's Choice Award," Sun Dogs Parasail offers one of the best parasailing experiences around. The best time to fly is before 2:00 p.m. when the wind and seas are at their calmest. It is also the best time to spot dolphins. After your adventure, enjoy a delicious meal at AJ's Seafood & Oyster Bar. The restaurant offers stunning views and the largest stadium-quality jumbotron television on the Emerald Coast.

For another way to spend time on the water besides parasailing, enjoy a dolphin cruise in Destin. You are sure to capture incredible images for your social media.
