About
Parasailing looks scary from a distance, but when you’re in the air — 400 feet in the air — it magnifies the beauty of the landscape below you. Some say it’s a life changing experience for them, one they can’t wait to experience again! Everyone has something different to say about their experience. To know what impact parasailing in the open skies will have on you, why don’t you join us in Destin? Our boats have the capacity to hold twelve people. You can come as a single or in groups of two, three, or more. Our parasailing equipment can hold two to three people side by side. We inspect our parasailing equipment daily to ensure you have a fun, safe, and thrilling ride.

      Great time no extra charges for nets or up sale
      Great time and feeding fish for the first time was great idea. We were cutting it short on time so the parking for an extra twenty was well worth it.

      Mediocre Fishing Charter
      Although I caught some big fish; they were out of season and had to be thrown back. The rest of the fish were small. I live in the Tampa area and I go deep sea fishing regularly. With this charter I caught maybe a third of the fish I normally catch at home (and I normally catch 30+) Also, I think we were shorted out time to fish longer in order to get back to port. The charter was from 6am to 1pm. We were back at the dock by 12pm. I think if you want to take the kids fishing I think there are plenty of charters that will gladly give you what you are paying for.

      Bad experience
      Rough seas with wind, rain and high waves. 30 foot boats were cancelling their charters for the day. Safety wasn’t really a concern for me but comfort and fun are. First couple of stops for the boat were virtually unfishable. Had to hold onto the rail with one hand and the wind and rain were difficult as well. Numerous people got sick and many people did not even fish because of conditions. There were some fish caught however, I don’t think any red snappers of legal size were brought in. True party boat trip with over 50 people on board. I actually fished a semi-private charter earlier in week with 14 people on board. We caught more fish on that trip than this boat with over 50. First mates were okay. Had better. I took off a couple fish myself in order to get back fishing quicker. Caught 2 triggerfish, 2 mingos, 1 grunt. Typically will catch 10-15 fish on a charter like this. Also the boat left dock 10 mins late and arrived back about 10 mins early. Recommend try another charter.

      Company issue
      The fishing trip itself was great!!! My issue is with the company.. they changed our package without our knowledge and charged us an additional $200 at check in even though this was not even discussed with us.. they also charge $20 just to park your vehicle in the parking lot... parking should be included in your package costs!!!

      Do not wear nails! Mine are short but still. I’m a pretty experienced fisher from back home but I needed a left hand pole, they only had 1, the line broke and I had to use right handed. You drive for 3 hours. We only got 4 fish. It’s freezing so be prepared! Overall the experience was okay since it was something we had never done before, but I won’t do it again with this company. At 200$ per person, you’d think there were more than 1 left handed pole. They do not bait your hook either. They also don’t take your fish off unless you literally scream “fish on” which was annoying as hell. This would be a 10/10 if you didn’t have any expectations/never caught a fish before. The time DOES fly by though! The guys are sweet & try to be accommodating as possible. Bring food!!

      Awesome Trip
      Great trip. Only caught one fish which was delicious as dolphins would not leave us. Deck hands were great, Dennis and Allen. Would recommend.

      Rip off.
      Dangerous conditions Wednesday 5/15/24. The boat should never have left the dock. Fishing in 6-8 feet waves in impossible and dangerous. If you can't stand up, you can't fish. 70-80% of the 50+ passengers were SICK. The few fish that were caught were no bigger than your hand.

      Novelty
      Seemed more like a novelty fishing experience. Small fish for the hour and a half spent getting to the spot and another hour and a half back. I would recommend a more private charter if you are looking for big fish. Crew was nice.

      Destin Florida, Good for tourists and retired folks.
      My opinion is Destin is a busy, fast paced tourist/retirement community. I went off season and the people I met were friendly. Mile after mile of condos and beautiful houses. There are many nice restaurants. The beaches are beautiful white sand and stretch on forever with beautiful sunsets. Be cautious around the water (4' waves and rip tides) I enjoyed the Harbor walk a lot and the different sized boats for fishing or excursions. Shopping is an experience as everywhere is busy.

      Lee & Ashley for the win!
      We booked last minute for a parasailing trip at the kids request! We saw the sign and harbor docks and the next day we booked! The crew was awesome and very informative! After the ride, they took us to see the dolphins, which was amazing! Highly recommend this crew! Super good with the little ones! We let our 6 & 9 year olds have their first ride!

      Worth the time!!
      Had a great time, even with rainy weather and rough seas! Crew was great. We could have used a first -timer's speech, as I didn't really know what to do, but other folks helped us out. I can't wait to go again!

    Really well run operation that was safe and a lot of fun. Captain Lee and Spencer did an outstanding job and made the parasailing even more enjoyable. Lots of fun conversation, they also pointed out some attractions in the Destin area. Highly recommended.

    We took my niece to celebrate her 11th birthday, it was her first time for many adventures, parasailing being one of them. The crew was super kind, gentle and confident! My niece enjoyed herself to the max! well to be honest my entire family did. The view was spectacular! Very controlled even the dipping part!! We literally booked online the night before! Pelican Adventures was maybe an 8 minute car ride from where we were staying. Pelican Adventures is definitely the place to hit up, the location is perfect!!! . You can do the Harbor Walk right after, maybe enjoy some jet ski to crab island...I totally recommend booking with Pelican adventures!!

    My husband and I went while vacationing in Destin. The weather was perfect - clear waters and clear skies! We saw at least 4 sharks and several dolphins. Our guides were great, they made the entire experience enjoyable. After everyone parasailed they drove the boat over to watch some dolphins. And they gave some great pointers on where to eat. Would do this excursion again and again! My pro tip is to NOT pay to park up front. The free parking across the street is not far at all; the paid parking simply isn’t worth it. Save your $20 and tip the guides.

    The best part of the trip was the takeoff and landing. Both the instructor and boat operator were great. I believe their names were jeff and Lee. They kept us laughing the entire time while we waited our turn to go in the air. I will definitely recommend others to visit as well as be back myself these guys know exactly what theyre doing.

    The captain Jeff & JJ deckmate were a blast! 😄 They made it fun with humor & personal stories. Interacted with all riders. Explained everything for anyone who hadn't been & made you feel safe as well as comfortable. Definetly plan to do this every time I come.

    Planning to parasail? There is no better place than Pelican Adventures. This is our 4th year to sail high with them. Jeff, the captain, was the deck hand on our first trip and the following year became the captain. The entire company from the staff taking reservations to the captain taking us out are the best.
    Would have sailed a second time this week but more storms are coming. Will have to wait for next year.

    First time parasailing and it was an absolute BLAST! The 18th of December and it was fantastic! A bit cold as to be expected in December, nothing a windbreaker couldnt fix.. The cooler weather didn't take anything away from the experience.Lee and JJ (capitan and deck hand)were professional and friendly. They both did a great job making sure we had the best time. Would 10/10 recommend these guys for parasailing. Can't wait to do it again next year!

    The office staff was really fun to talk to and helpful and then we went on the boat and met Jay and Captain Chris. They took us out on the bay and we were so fortunate because it was a gorgeous day and there was very little traffic. We flew high and could see all over the bay and out to the ocean with gorgeous views! They brought us safely down and Did a great job. My daughter was thrilled at the experience in The view! I recommend wearing long sleeves because it does get cool and windy up there!

    Our whole family (ages 9 - 46) had an incredible time! Our driver and guide, Brandon and Christian, were very personable and eager to offer advice about all things Destin. The flight itself was amazing - we were surprised at how smooth and peaceful it was up there! The views were incredible and even our youngest, who was nervous, thought the whole thing was awesome. Highly recommend!

    We had an outstanding time and overall experience Parasailing with Pelican Adventures. Our Captain Jeff, and Deckhand J.J. , really made the outing what it was. They were the perfect amount of professional, humorous, and attentive. These guys are great and they know what they are doing. 5 Stars all the way.
