Great ride. Not at all scary. Very relaxing and on a hot day, very cooling. If you are going on a cruise, arrive extra early and do the parasailing, or plan doing it upon your return to Port Canaveral. Real easy to get to and close to the ships' ports. You actually depart at one of the port restaurants, so if you're hungry or want to get a drink before or after the ride, no problem. Worth the time!

Booked with Cocoa Beach Parasail a 800 foot ride for myself and my daughter. Spoke to Pam and she was very helpful and extremely nice. When we got there we were greeted by Pam and she was amazing. The ride was great and we had a lot of fun. Def recommend this for everyone to do this at least once in their life. Not scary at all. Just peaceful and surreal. After our ride, I went back to Pam and thanked her for this great experience. Also asked her for a few recommendations on where to eat and she said to try out Coconuts. Great great place. Overall a great day! Thank you for the memories!

Your kind words about our excursion and staff made our month, Dianna! Thank you for taking the time to recognize our efforts and for choosing CBP to make special memories with. We try and make the experience a personal one and are elated when awesome guests like yourself connect with it. We’re also glad the restaurant choice worked for you as well...when you wanted beach and food close to your kayaking location we knew to point you to where the Coconuts fall. Continue to Reach for the Sky in ‘13! :)

OK...even for a "grandma wimp" this was fun! I was struck by how quiet it is when sailing so high above the ocean... The view cannot be beat. We saw sharks, a sea turtle and a stingray.. awesome. Just do it...you won't regret it!!

Parasailing Grandma’s are wonderful! Your age group is one that we love to parasail with in particular just to show the world how flying high isn’t just for one demographic to enjoy. Mature folks love constant elevation too! Thank you for choosing our excursion to savor life with and for being so adventurous. Continue to Reach for the Sky in ‘13!

My husband and I went to Cocoa Beach for our much delayed honeymoon! It took quite a bit of convincing on my husband's part to want to try parasailing, but after he did some research, he was pretty excited to try. We reserved a time slot, only to be called a few hours before our reservation to reschedule for the next morning because of weather conditions. This may sound like a pain, but they definitely know what they're doing! They won't go out unless the weather conditions, mainly wind speed and any incoming storm systems (because it rains a lot during the time we went!), are ideal for parasailing. Their customer's safety is at the top of their list at all times! The boat ride was fun and relaxing, they played a dance mix of music during the excursion. They took photos while we were up in the air and they turned out great! Very clear, especially for a person trying to take photos on a moving speed boat! The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The ride up was very smooth and steady, not fast at all, it really felt like you were just floating. It's so serene while floating up there, very relaxing. While airborn, we saw manta rays, sharks and sea turtles. Then while we headed back to dock, there were two dolphins right at the dock waiting for fish scraps (the dock was close to an area where fisherman clean their fish). It was so cool to be so close to a dolphin unexpectedly. They let us hang out in the water and watch for a while instead of taking us straight into dock. We would definitely do it again if in the Cocoa Beach area again! Word of advice: Wear sunscreen! I didn't plan on us being out there for 2-3 hours, but there are other people on the voyage, so you're out there as long as it takes for everyone to get their turn! Thanks to the Cocoa Beach Parasail staff for such an awesome experience!
