My wife and I went parasailing over Key Largo with Captain Darrell and a crew member one early fall afternoon.
We were struck by how quickly we got out onto the water and in the air. Captain Darrell's safety explanation covered the bases without revealing too much about what was about to happen, which was key to maintaining the excitement level (and probably kept the nerves down, too). He had a few tricks up his sleeve to make the ride even more fun.
The crew pointed out natural features and wildlife on our way out, and they manned the boat and rigged us up smoothly and confidently. It was clear that they knew what they were doing, further relaxing us before takeoff.
Contacting the company on the phone for reservations was a challenge. We couldn't get through in the morning at the opening hour listed on the pamphlet we had. We stayed at the resort, however, so that wasn't an issue for us.
The location for this activity can't be beat! If you have a healthy heart and can sit down, you can parasail!
