My daughters and I decided to parasail recently. Rhianna, Raymond, Travis and Amanda were wonderful and very accomadating! We saw lots of sea life during our trip (sea turtle & dolphins.) We will be back so that my husband and son can do it! Thanks for creating fun memories! PS- If you are debating in the height do the 1200... More

Thank you for the glowing review Lindsay. I'll be sure to pass the compliments along to all of the crew. The higher the better, as you noted. The further you get away from the boat the more peaceful the experience becomes. Can't wait to see you with your husband. Regards, Patrick More

Such a great time. The entire boat team was amazing and kept us entertained the entire time. Amanda was great with the kids and had them smiling the whole time.

Thank you for the positive review. That's what it's all about, keeping everybody smiling, all the time. No crying, pouting, frowning, grouchy, or grumpy, on the parasail boat, at any time. Incessant laughter, chuckling, mild howling, giggling, and plain old merriment always acceptable and appreciated. Hope to see you again soon. Patrick More

I'm glad the two of you had an "Awesome Experience". Yeah that Travis he can really ham it up. Most important he's very conscientious about his work especially when it comes to safety. I think you hit the nail on the head he's pretty funny, not really funny, but pretty funny. Yeah that's it. Thanks for the comments, and well... More

My friend and I decided to go parasailing because we were participating in a scavenger hunt, Gishwhes. One of the items was to parasail a teddy bear! We though it might be difficult to find someone willing, but Ranalli's was so helpful!! They got a kick out of having the teddy bear up there, and we had absolutely no problems... More

What a great photo. thank you for the positive review. I hope you did well with gishwishes, but remember your "friendly neighborhood parasail staff", when you win that trip to Costa Rica, we love it there. We hope to see you again soon, and as always there will be no additional charge for stuffed animals. Have Fun, Patrick More

The best experience...we had two little ones go up, one 5 and one 7. Our five year old daughter was a little leery about going up, but the crew made her feel at ease and she did it and wanted to go longer and higher by the time she was done. The overall experience from the time Raymond took us... More

Thank you for letting us all know about your experience with the little ones. Like I told you, if you can get them on the boat, I can usually get them in the air. Inevitably the first words out of their mouths when they land back on the boat is " can we go again"? We hope to continue seeing... More

Ranalli parasail is the best company to parasail with. This is our 2 time with them and both times very personal staff and have strict safety measures. They create a fun but safe environment for all families. Highly recommend and make sure you get the photo package, so you have photos to remember your sky high adventure.

Our teddy bear wanted to go parasailing for GiShwhEs and Ranalli's was wonderful about accommodating him! In addition, my daughter and her friend joined the bear high in the sky. They were prompt in the boat, attentive, and had a great sense of humor at Ranalli's. If you ever wanted to do this, give them a call!

I'm happy we were able to accommodate "The Teddy Bear", and his friends, but I didn't get to see the pictures. I had never heard of Gishwishes, until you brought it to my attention, sounds like a riot. I hope your daughter did well. Thank you for your visit. Regards, Patrick More

Last week I went parasailing with two of my older cousins and we loved it! We were allowed to bring out go pro cameras up with us to capture the scenery while we were also allowed to bring out camera on the boat with us. The staff was friendly and very professional, I definitely recommend it!

I finally got over my fear and parasailed! My initial intention was to go along with the ride for my kids. However, Raymond our hilarious shuttle boat driver told me I had to do it and then Travis and Amanda our parasail drivers convinced me it was safe. They walked me through the whole process and told me exactly what... More

We were a large group of 12, with 7 flyers. Travis answered all my questions ahead of time, and easily made reservations by phone. Amanda and Travis were fantastic, as was Raymond. We paid a little extra for the photography package and got the SD card with over 200 photos on it. I researched all the companies on the island... More

Oh my goodness, what a group. Thank you for all the positive feedback. I'm glad we were able to get everyone on the boat and you enjoyed the ride.
