We went yesterday and it was awesome!!! I booked it online, which took about 1 minute and was painless. Showed up to Diamondhead resort about 45 minutes early to fill out waiver because we had no way to print it at our hotel. It cost 10$ to park, but it costs the same to park anywhere on the Ft Meyers... More

I'm terrified of heights but I thought I'd give this a go. It was so much fun! The captain is fun and makes the trip a blast. So is the woman on board helping. She was beyond amazing. Don't tell the captain you're scared, you've been warned. Lol. The guy on the beach helping was awesome as well. Very nice... More

We had the best time Parasailing with Ranalli's. They were friendly and went beyond what was expected. I would recommend them to anyone and would be more than happy to be a returning customer.

Unfortunately we did not get the names of the people who took us on the boat for parasailing, but we did get Nate's! He was very friendly and did a good job at helping us pick the right package for parasailing. The people on the boat were very nice too. This company is amazing!!!!!!!!! We will be coming back next... More

On my visits to Ft. Myers Beach, I've gone parasailing three times, always with Ranalli Parasail. They are the best! The first time I went, I flew solo. Last year I took my granddaughter up. This was her first time (she was 12). She loved it. She wanted to go again the minute we were back on the boat. They... More

We're all delighted that you continue to make us a part of your visit. We're going to have to look at the possibility for a "frequent flyer program" if you keep this up. Thank... More

It was fun and relaxing even riding on the shuttle boat to the main boat was enjoyable. Me and my wife did this for our 5th anniversary. I didn't realize we had to walk out to the shuttle boat when we made our reservation and I wasn't wearing swim trunks. So if u go plan on getting wet and wear... More

That pretty much sums it up, Fun and Relaxing. Nobody ever believes the relaxing part until they've done it themselves, but everybody knows its going to be fun. Everyone is expecting a thrill ride, but the fact is it is very smooth, and casual. Thank you for mentioning the swim suit. We're on the Gulf, so there are no docks,... More

Had a great time. The crew made us feel very welcome and was thorough with their instructions since it was my first time. Bonus got to see multiple hammerhead sharks.

It's almost summer, and that always means sharks. Just keep in mind sharks are very skittish. Believe it or not they are probably a lot more afraid of us then we should be of them. I'm glad you enjoyed the ride, and everyone was helpful. We'll look forward to seeing you the next time. More
