Experience Destin’s stunning emerald waters and white beaches from an entirely new perspective. You’ll glide among the clouds, against a gentle breeze of fresh ocean air. This bird’s eye view of the Gulf of Mexico is a truly unique experience reserved only for those that parasail during their vacation in Destin. On a clear day, you can see over 20 miles!
During your adventure in the sky, you’ll see surface-dwelling aquatic life such as dolphins, porpoises, large schools of fish, and various other wildlife native to the warm waters of the gulf.
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.
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).
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.
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!
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!
