Our trip was a surprise for my sister at the end of her bachelorette weekend. It was fantastic! Our crew was attentive, personable and very helpful to calm any "first-time" nerves. What a great experience! We did the 900' ft flight and the toe dips were fantastic! Had no issues whatsoever with the height. Would highly recommend even those who... More

My fiance and I were on our way to Naples to get married, as we were driving down we decided to go to Ft Myers and go parasailing. It was so much fun, the staff was very professional at the beach and on the boat - they were super friendly and made the experience so much fun. We highly reccomend... More

Wow. I feel very honored that you were able to squeeze a parasail ride into your plans BEFORE the wedding. I hope you got to enjoy those few quiet minutes alone, up in the air, enjoying each other and the view, before the busy part of your weekend started. We'll look forward to seeing you on your anniversary. Best Wishes,... More

I couldn't agree with you more. so far the youngest has been two and the oldest ninety two, but we're always ready for a challenge. I think we should shoot for someone 100+. Until next time, thank you for your review, and your visit. Best Regards, Patrick More

We had a family of 4 parasail in early August. Grandparents, parent and young teen. Everybody loved it. We did the 900 with toe dips and went up 2 and 2. We got the photo package which was well worth it. It provided awesome memories for the whole family. We will definitely be doing this again with Ranalli. The take... More

Thank your for the positive review. We are delighted that everyone enjoyed the ride. Age doesn't matter much out here, we're all just a bunch of kids. Everyone thinks there is some skill involved to do the activity, but if you can get on the boat, we'll get you in the air. See you next time. Patrick More

We went yesterday and it was awesome!!! I booked it online, which took about 1 minute and was painless. Showed up to Diamondhead resort about 45 minutes early to fill out waiver because we had no way to print it at our hotel. It cost 10$ to park, but it costs the same to park anywhere on the Ft Meyers... More
