My girls 11 and 14 enjoyed their para-sailing adventure but it was expensive. It cost $170 for a three person trip. You go out on the boat with 9 or 10 other people so you are on the water for about an hour. However, each group is only in the air 8-10 minutes. The crew was fun and we enjoyed it but it is to expensive to go again.

Awesome parasailing experience with Key Sailing! My wife along with our 6 and 4 ur old sons had an absolute blast!! Captain Awesome and Jesus (boat crew) were great and even offered tips on some great nearby restaurants. We're heading back tomorrow to rent a jet ski!

We purchased 3 parasailing adventures and an hour on the jet ski, and one kayak rental! Younger kids even played in the sand and on the bay side and had a blast splashing around and playing with other children!

Parasailing was fun! My DH, DS(13 years old), and DD (9 years old), went up on the parasail in a triple person sail! We purchased the wrist camera which was well worth it to see the pics after!!!!

They had fun parasailing, only complaint was that they were not up in the air very long, maybe 10 minutes and not much longer. At $150 for the 3 of them the experience would have been 5 stars if it was even 5 or 10 minutes longer. Felt like you get your money's worth!


Rented jet ski (3 seater) for one hour with myself, 9 year old DD, and 5 year old DS. They had an absolute blast and it was there favorite part of the whole trip!!!

13 year old DS rented kayak for an hour and loved paddling around the bay.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience!!! Would definitely visit again! Staff were wonderful!!!

I went sailing and para sailing at Key Sailing one day and absolutely loved it! I had never been sailing before and it was a great experience. While sailing with some friends we had a beautiful view and even had a pod of dolphins swimming with us for a while. Great place, great people, great time!

Visiting our son who's stationed at the Navy base in Pensacola so we decided to go parasailing since we've never done that. Made our way to Key Sailing (because of the great reviews) but it was right in the middle of De Luna Fest on Pcola Beach so parking left something to be desired. But we eventually made our way and the folks at Key Sailing were very very nice and answered any questions we had and joked around with us. We had no wait at all - we walked to the boat (the wife didn't want to try it but they let her ride on the boat with my son and I) and got harnessed up right away and off we went. The two employees were so much fun and such nice guys, but very professional. The ride was incredible - the views were phenomenal. It seemed like we were up there for an hour. Then they brought us down and dipped us into the water a couple of times (they asked our permission first). I thought it was freezing but my son didn't think so. We were laughing so hard by the time they got us back on the boat. Would defintely do this again and would definitley recommend Key Sailing - great bunch of guys and we just want to let them know how much we enjoyed ourselves that day. Can't wait to do it again!
