Scenic flights on The Gulf of Mexico, overlooking Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita, Naples, and Fort Myers Beach. Parasailing is fun and safe for the whole family. We have flown ages 2 to 92 and everything in between. We'll look forward to hearing from you, to book your adventure.

Thank you for letting us know about your "Amazing Experience". I love that word. It works when no other word will. Glad to know you had the age gamut going. Keep in mind our youngest has been 2, and the oldest 92, so you need to bring some more friends and family for next time. We'll look forward to seeing... More

We went with these guys and had a truly amazing experience and an amazing day! The team is professional and the crews are awesome. They make the experience memorable. I highly recommend this company if you want to parasail.

Starting with Patrick at the "hut on the beach" we were greeted and all of the plans for our adventure were thoroughly reviewed. Patrick told us that we would go out to the water and Raymond would be there to shuttle us to the boat. Raymond was lovely. He was so helpful to both of my children as well as... More

When I first called to find out about prices and other information, Travis was VERY accommodating and assuring since I had a slight fear of heights, moreso than any of the other 3 I called. My best friend and I went ahead and made the reservation. We had made the reservation for 11 am and showed up about 15 minutes... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. As always your safety and comfort are our highest concern. It sounds like Travis and Amanda did a great job of putting you at ease and making you feel relaxed. We'll look forward to seeing you next time. Twice as long and twice as high at 1200 feet....

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

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
