I went during my spring break of '12 after purchasing the $49 Groupon offer and it was amazing!! They take you and your partner (and 2 other people - who happened to be fellow UM students) with them on a boat then briefly informs you of the safety instructions of parasailing and then takes you up! You have the option of being dunked into water (which we did) and it's very refreshing. I'm pretty sure we saw dolphins when we were high up - you can only see the ripples of the flock of dolphins, not actual dolphins since you're so high. Parasailing isn't as thrilling as I thought though, but rather relaxing and exciting to see quite a beautiful view of Miami. I love heights so being very high up was cool. Actual parasailing was only about 15 minutes but with the boat ride and waiting for the other group comes out to be about 45 minutes-1hr. The manager is a personable guy working with his son. He's been doing this for a very long time beginning in Hawaii (I think, I forget). They also let you take pictures so the other group took some really neat shots of me and my boyfriend holding hands high up with the Miami skyline underneath us.
I remember I was afraid of purchasing it just in case I wouldn't be able to use it while my boyfriend was visiting me but when I called them, they scheduled me ~10 days from the day I called since they were booked. They offered a package of 4hours of jetskiing and other things (don't remember) but I declined and just decided to use my Groupon. My appointment was at 5pm but we started a little later than that (I think they were running late from the group before us) but that was fine with me since I arrived late too. Great experience overall!
