Decided to try this on a whim after being relocated by my company. First, I am hearing impaired and the owner, Patrick was so accomodating that he set everything up for me. I showed up and was treated like royalty. Everyone was above and beyond professional and beamed pride of their company. The Captain and first mate were able to... More

My mom and I wanted to go parasailing for her 67th birthday and based on Ranalli's reviews we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed! We had an awesome time and if you have never parasailed you should give it a try, it was like flying like a bird! The captain, the first mate, and everyone... More

Hi Derrick, Thank you for bringing your 67 year old mom, and glad you guys had a great time. People don't realize how easy parasailing really is. My mom has been flying for 25 years, and she is 78, but neither your mom or mine holds the record. /That mom is a very young 92. We'll look forward to seeing... More

What an exciting new thing to try for me. I'm terrified of heights but my husband really wanted to go parasailing. I was so glad we did. It was so peaceful. We saw dolphins, sea turtles and fish. The view was spectacular, and the gentle breeze was soothing. Patrick and his crew made me feel at ease. I would recommend... More

That is the new Mrs. Reitz as I recall. Congratulations again. I'm so glad you overcame your fear. It is hard to explain to anyone the freedom of flying until you have had the experience. This is a perfect time of year for all those sea creatures. May is one of my favorite months in Florida. Thank you for your... More

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

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.
