We took our two children parasailing with Ronalli parasailing. We all had a wonderful time. Carissa and Travis were friendly and professional and made sure we all had a great experience. We enjoyed the beautiful views and smooth ride (complete with a toe dip!). We felt safe at all times and our children can't wait to go again.

Hi M W. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're never sure who has more fun the parents or the kids, but I'm glad you all enjoyed the experience. The toe dip is my favorite part. It gives you the sensation of actually coming down in a parachute, and I love the elevator ride back up.... More

We have just returned to the UK after a week long stay at FMB, we did the parasailing on the last day of our visit, myself, husband and two teenagers aged 17. We booked it on the beach through Sam who was very helpful and friendly (and easy on the eye lol!! ;) and talked us through what would happen,... More

Thank you for all the positive feedback from your flights Kelly. I'm wondering who is in charge of editing those 134 pictures. We'll look forward to seeing you the next time, and bring your SD so we can add another 100 photos. All The Best, Patrick More

Ranalli Parasailing always exceeds our expectations for a great time! My 83yr old grandma has parasailed with them every winter for many years! They cater to the whole family and make sure everyone has a fun and safe experience!

We appreciate you always coming back to see us, and your going to have to return for some time. Our oldest flyer to date is 92, so grandma has a few years to go before she breaks any records. We'll look forward to seeing you the next time. Patrick More

I am a SW Florida native and a been there, done that kind of girl. My sister on the other hand hails from North Carolina- sandy beaches and ocean water look a little foreign to her. When she came down to visit I was stumped about what to do. She's 15 and in that phase where she's a little too... More

This was our first time parasailing and believe me we had to think about it for awhile. From the time we started walking out to the big red boat, climbing aboard and getting settled into the harness, Cap't Travis and Kristin explained everything so well, they even calculated the weight difference between Melanie & I. What a surreal experience! Floating... More

We try to explain how unbelievable the flight actually is, but no one wants to believe us. It's something you just have to experience for yourself in order to "get it". Thank you for sharing your experience, and we'll look forward to seeing you next time. Patrick More

We went parasailing with Ranalli and Capt Travis and assistant Kurt were terrific. The views and experience were beautiful and Travis and Kurt made the experience extremely fun. I would highly recommend this company.

This was an awesome experience for three of our group, something they had wanted to do for a long time, something on their bucket list. The only drawback for this experience was one of our party was going to be the photographer and there was no dock access to the boat. We had to wade out in chest high water... More
