Summary of What to Expect
Arrive at our location 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time. Our convenient location has ample parking and doesn't require a shuttle to an off-site destination like many of our competitors.
#2: Safety Briefing
One of our experienced captains will give you and your boat-mates 10-15 minute safety orientation. Parasailing is one of the safest water sports but it's still important you understand the basic safety procedures and precautions before taking to the clouds.
#4: Load Up & Depart
Each time slot can accommodate a max of six parasailers, not including captain and crew. After a short boat ride, you'll be a several hundred yards from Destin's famous sugary white beaches where the first parasailer will launch from the flight deck.
The duration of your flight depends on the number of participants onboard, if you're doing a double, triple, or single, the weather, etc. But, most parasail rides last around 10 minutes.
#5: Head Back to Shore
After everyone's taken their turn and pictures have been taken, we'll return back to the harbor. The time from when you're briefed to when you return to the dock will take an average of 45 minutes to an hour. If there's time, the captain will likely stop by one of the local dolphins' favorite spots on the way in. With a little luck, you'll find yourself within 5 yards of wild bottlenose dolphins.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Parasailing Scary?
No. It's not scary, but it's quite a thrill! In fact, most riders say that once they've started riding in the clouds and have wind in their face, the experience is quite peaceful.
There are things our captains can do to make your experience a little more exciting. For example, you can be dipped in the water during your flight to add another level of thrill.
Do You Only Provide Service for People in Destin?
Nope! Visitors come from across the Emerald Coast to parasail, rent jet skis, take tours of Crab Island, rent pontoon boats, and book fishing trips with Wet N' Wild Watersports. We regularly have customers from Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa, Grayton, Sandestin, Fort Walton, Blue Mountain Beach, Seaside, Okaloosa Island, and even Panama City (about a 30 minute drive down 30-A).
Can Non-Flyers (i.e. those who aren't parasailing) Ride in the Boat?
If there's room the boat, absolutely. Be sure to mention this to the booking agent when you call to make a reservation.
How Do I Take Off and Land?
Historically people launched with a running start on the beach. To make things safer, we've installed a launch deck on all of our parasail boats. These ensure you'll always have a safe, gentle take off and landing.
Will You Dip Me in the Ocean? Will I Get Wet?
Only if you want to! Getting dipped definitely adds some excitement to your experience, but it's not for everyone. For your safety, in high wind conditions getting dipped may not be possible.
You'll be lifted from a platform at the rear of the boat, so you won't be jumping in the water. But, it's still best to plan on getting a little wet. So don't bring an expensive camera without a waterproof case!
Do You Offer Photo Packages?
We absolutely encourage you to take pictures or even bring a GoPro with you for one-of-a-kind footage of Destin's beautiful, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Our crew members or captain will even take a picture for you!
Weather Cancellation Policy
Weather conditions are simply out of our hands. And, a safe parasailing experience is dependent on good weather conditions. Unfortunately, even when there are sunny skies extremely windy conditions can prevent us from going out. If bad weather prevents us from parasailing at your scheduled time, we'll do everything in our power to ensure you're able to experience parasailing during your vacation. If we're unable to reschedule, you'll receive a 100% refund.
What Happens if I Don't Show Up for a Scheduled Time?
If you're a "no show", i.e. you don't cancel a trip within 24 hours, you'll be charged in full. Please understand that space on our boats is limited and in high demand. A customer not showing up for a parasailing trip almost always means someone else not being able to go during their limited vacation time.
Are There Any Age or Weight Restrictions?
Be sure to check ask about our bundled packages to receive a discount on jet ski rentals, pontoon boat rentals, or any of our other services if booked on the same day.
How Much Does Parasailing Cost?
We have the most competitive rates in town. Rates start at around $45, depending on how many people fly at once and whether you want to purchase one of our picture packages. The price can also be reduced if you bundle it with one or more of our other activities. We accept competitors coupons and will match any other offers you find in Okaloosa County.
Is Parasailing Safe?
When properly run, parasailing is incredibly safe. Aside from being in compliance with Florida's parasailing statutes and laws, we have some of the most experienced operators on the Florida panhandle. You'll undergo a safety briefing just before you get on the boat and all of our equipment and crew are certified by the U.S. coast guard. Our attention to detail, such as a careful watch of weather conditions and wind speeds, combined with our experience make Wet-n-Wild Watersports among the most reliable parasailing operators in Destin.
