Most Experienced Captain

What's it like to PARASAIL?!
Your Parasailing Adventure
Believe it or not, parasailing is a great way to relax, with the wind in your ears, expanse of sky enveloping you, and Destin's beautiful, emerald green water below. The relaxation is matched only by the exhilaration of being airborne, giving you a whole new perspective. Soar 500 feet in the air with the seagulls and pelicans. From this birds eye view, you are likely to spot tarpon, sharks, cobia, sea turtles and dolphins! So come, enjoy the crystal waters, Destin style!
The trip includes embarkment from the beach to the parasail boat, take-off and landing on the boat deck, utilizing a smooth hydraulic winch system as well as:
U.S. Coastguard-approved life jackets
U.S. Coastguard-licensed captain with a sense of humor
Plenty of free, public parking in paved lot
Restrooms always available
Take advantage of our beautiful, beach location while you wait!

Captain Jambo's Parasailing in Destin Tips
How many people do you want to parasail with? Decide if you want to ride on a single, double, or triple flight. Keep in mind that there is a 450lb weight limit on each flight and you'll have to get along with them for 10-12 minutes mid-air! Do we have to separate you two?!
How wet do you want to get? Upon boarding the parasail vessel, let your captain know if you want no dip, a toe tickle, leg licker, or a complete parasailing christening (full dunk)!
How long do you prefer your boat ride to be? Parasailing beautiful Destin is awesome but keep in mind that most boats hold 12-15 passengers. Our 6 passenger boat will keep riding the waves fun! Unless you grew up on boats, choose a 6-pack when you can.
Do you need to spend money on a parasail camera package? Captain Jambo's offers two different angles: a GoPro, selfie-stick that puts you in control of your video adventure, or the deckhand captures 25-40 photos of each flight on a professional Nikon camera. As always, you are welcome to take photos of your group with your camera, but we cannot assume risk of damage from elements of sea or operation of vessel. So document your Destin, Florida parasailing adventures in any combo you choose! We support you!
Don't wait until the last day to book your parasailing trip! June, July, and August are hopping here in Destin so book several days in advance to avoid missing out. Early parasail booking ensures you may reschedule in case Destin's crazy weather strikes, as well! Which brings me to...
Rely on your parasail captain and deckhand. They are your guides and best buds when venturing out on the sometimes tempestuous Gulf waters! Rest assured, our captain has been working on boats for 26 years. Safety is the parasailing crew's #1 concern, so understand if the weather makes a turn for the worst and you don't see it yet, they do. At the the end of the day, we all want to go back to our Destin condos to parasail another day!
Don't eat like Jabba before you come parasailing! Keep your meal short and sweet. You don't want to have the "itis" or the "oozies" because all the blood went to digest food. You may miss the bliss of floating above Destin's emerald waters parasailing, because your stomach is busy bloating from adrenaline! (Sorry, nurse and mom here; I had to say it!)
Parasail at the beach for the best experience! No 45 min check-ins or congested harbor traffic, away from where you came to be--the beach--right?! Just stop in at the hut 10-15 min before your parasail time, then chill in the sun and waves!
Know the in's and out's of Destin parasailing hype! Current Federal Aviation Administration regulations dictate up to 800ft of line be used to allow for 400ft of vertical distance for your parasailing flight. Different companies may throw out varying numbers, but this is the limit, folks!
