Parasailing at Gators Parasail - Madeira Beach gives you a whole new view...

Parasailing at Gators Parasail - Madeira Beach gives you a whole new view of the Tampa Bay Beaches from St Pete Beach to Clearwater Beach and beyond. The parasailing experience is safe and suitable for any age and an adventure you won't soon forget. Gators Parasail offers a Deluxe Parasailing Adventure that lets you all the way out and all the way up and includes a freefall that simulates parachuting. Stay dry the entire time or ask for an optional DIP and get wet from your toes to your nose! The Deluxe Parasailing adventure provides a wonderful panoramic view of our white sand beaches and sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Free parking available at our dock in Johns Pass Village for our customers.

The staff were all friendly and very accommodating. They greeted us with a smile on their face and took us in after our last minute decision to go parasailing that day. We could not have had a better experience for our first time. We felt safe with knowledgeable people the whole time! Definitely use them, and not the Eagle company.... More

The crew was very friendly and professional. They never pressured for tips or to buy their photo package. They actually took pictures for us on my cell phone. Felt safe the whole time. The equipment was all new and comfortable. We added jet skiing at a discounted rate right after parasailing. Got to go out and jet ski with brand... More

My wife signed us up for parasailing as a surprise birthday "event", instead of a gift. Neither one of us likes heights, but since she had parasailed before, she felt I should have that experience too. We arrived a bit early and were greeted by super nice Alan, who smoothly checked us in. There were eight other people who would... More

Wasn't my first choice of activities since I am afraid of heights- but I was so surprised how much I enjoyed it, the workers were great and joked to make everyone feel comfortable - it was so quiet while you were up and getting dunked was a plus in the Florida sun!

It was a fun and exciting time! The captain and mates were very personable and informative. It was very peaceful and serene when you got up in the air. We also saw dolphins and turtles! You can take your own pictures or pay to get your pictures taken. Highly recommend this!

While in Florida for a mini family vacation, I decided to take my son parasailing. Did a little research and felt Gators Parasail was our best option. We were not disappointed! The observer (me) fee, I felt was very reasonable compared to what the other companies in the area were charging. I booked online and was able to fill out... More

My daughter talked us into parasailing . I am 60 and my grand daughter is 8. The view cannot be explained. You have to feel it for yourself!!!; Zack and Mark are very professional. They cover the safety rules.in detail. Going up about 200 feet or more.I thought of how beautiful God's handy work is.

Gators provided great value, along with an entertaining and friendly staff. My children, who range in age from 7 to 15, all had a great time, as did my brother in law. They exceeded my expectations and provided a morning that I won't soon forget. The only detractor from the visit for me was all the signage about tipping staff,... More
