Enjoy a Parasailing Adventure on Your Next Sanibel Island Vacation

Looking to have some outdoor fun on your next vacation to Sanibel Island? With the fall months slowly creeping into the winter, the opportunities for some nice Sanibel Island weather are diminishing a little bit. With a wide variety of sandy beaches and beautiful vistas, Sanibel Island really is the ideal destination for parasailing. Learn all you will need to know about parasailing in Sanibel Island. Before you start to worry about that, however, you should make sure to book your Sanibel Island condo rental to make sure you have the perfect vacation!

What to Expect

Parasailing is a great way to experience everything that Sanibel Island has to offer. It’s an exciting and fun way for everyone in your travel group to enjoy the outdoors. With everything from birdwatching, seeing turtles and other sea life, to simply just taking in the view, it is the best way around Sanibel Island. When parasailing, those participating will often soar up to two or three hundred feet in the air; quite a breathtaking way to take in the Gulf of Mexico or Red Fish Pass! 

With that said, however, there are some specific rules in order to parasail. Everyone riding must have some sort of government-issued ID. There is a weight restriction in place for single, double, or even three people riders to ensure that everyone is safe at all times. Lastly, all riders must be at least six years old and weigh at least 90 pounds. When everyone follows these rules, everyone is guaranteed to have a good time!

There are two main company options for you and your group decide to parasail. Both YOLO Watersports and Sunny Island Adventures are both excellent choices that have expert staff and will guarantee that you and your family have fun and safe time while parasailing in Sanibel Island. Their knowledgeable staff can also provide you with plenty of history and insight into the island on your trip. With two solid options for parasailing, it is a great time for all those who partake on Sanibel Island.

As far as pricing, both options are incredibly reasonable. At YOLO, you can expect to pay $89 per person, and if you fly with someone else, you can get a slight discount. The rates are similar at Sunny Island Adventures, where you can book two flyers together for $160, which equals out to $80 per person. You can also visit these companies for even more water sports in Sanibel Island!
