On a trip from Chicago to Ft. Myers we decided last minute that we wanted to try parasailing. I called after hours and the phone was answered immediately. Ranalli was very accommodating and we were able to sail first thing the next morning. The ages that participated were from 10 to 40+. Most were first timers! This was a fun,... More

Had a great time! My 10 year old and I had the best time, highlight of our trip! All the crew members were great, from calling to make reservations to the crew on the boat. Prices were very reasonable and couldn't have asked for more! Thanks!!!

This was my first time to parasail so I was a little nervous. The Ranalli Parasail team was very calming and helpful in making my "first flight" a great experience. I will definitely do this again! Thanks guys!

Ranalli parasail was worth every cent. Great people, a great boat, and a great time. Ranalli holds bragging rights to the highest parasail rides on fort myers beach, and it is true! You also get dipped in the water 2x before soaring back up into the sky. Next time I am down here I will defintely be looking them up!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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
