Overview
More
Experience the thrill of flying 300 feet over the crystal clear waters of Key West; a staggering 200+ feet higher than the tallest building. Want to take a dip in the water while you're flying, or maybe you want to stay dry? Either can be arranged. When you arrive at the dock, be sure ask about the GoPro video or pictures of your flight that can be purchased. The only owner/operated parasailing rig in Key West, FL. For more than a decade, Captain Alfons and Captain Larry have been flying excited visitors high above the emerald isle.

This was our first time parasailing. And what an experience it was. My friend is somewhat afraid of heights but the guys explained everything about what to expect to safety. At the end of it all, both of us had an amazing experience. The boat...More

I, too, waited till we were in the US to Parasail. I was more comfortable with safety regulations then those of the Caribbean. ParaWest picked us up and we walked back to the cruise ship through town, very easy walk.
