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.

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. The pictures are awesome, but it looks like your going to be coming back for some time in order to get all those little ones up. We'll look forward to seeing... More

Parasailing with Ranalli was a great experience from beginning to end! The boat ride out with Raymond was entertaining...Amanda & Travis kept the parasail rides flowing smoothly and professionally. I definitely recommend this company! Great Fun!

Parasailing was the best. The entire team were exceptional from our signing up to the greatest ocean adventure. We will be sure to spread the word to family and friends to check you out. We will be sure to come back and go higher the next time. Donna and Sara Hoosiers all the way.

Located down the beach about a mile from the Matanzas Bridge at the Diamond Head Resort. Excellent crew with a range of options to choose from in the ride and the memories package offered. Geat equipment and a crew that functioned like a 'well oiled' machine. Can't recommend highly enough.

Thank you for your visit and positive review. That distance from The Pier to The DiamondHead Beach Resort and Spa sometimes seems insurmountable, but it is well worth going a bit further to get out of all the traffic and crowd near the "public beach". We're glad we made you feel welcome and comfortable on our part of the beach.... More

Traveling with a 1 year old and a 7 year old is not always easy. This crew went out of their way to make sure we would all have a great time by allowing one parent to stay back with our baby and then switching parents half way so we could all enjoy. Our 7 year old adored Raymond on... More

Thank you for taking the time for a positive review. I'm glad we were able to accommodate the little ones as well as the not so little ones. People don't believe us when we tell them it's appropriate for any age. Thank you for helping with the message. Regards, Patrick More

We would like to express the FANTASTIC time we had parasailing with the team of Ranalli. Meeting Julie at the beach, she was very helpful, friendly and courteous. Raymond on the shuttle boat made our short ride to the main boat fun and he was very friendly! Travis and Amanda, the Captain and First Mate, were out of this world... More

Took my kids 9 &6. Transport Boat was half hour late only to wait for in the boat for over another half hour for the parasail boat, in the blistering sun with no shade and no water. Needless to say, I hope my kids remember more then sunburn and mild heat stroke.

I certainly do appreciate you communicating with us and sincerely apologise for the disappointment. Our goal is to always provide a flawless experience, and I'm afraid we fell short of that with your wait. Unfortunately our day started out with a 10:30 thunderstorm, and our 12 passenger boat malfunctioned. We did the best we could to restart our day an... More
