Brian and his guys run a great operation at the beautiful Cheeca Lodge. Polite and knowledgeable folks with good equipment made this a wonderful family adventure for young -- and old -- adults.

Perfectly done and a wonderful time. It's peaceful, beautiful, and not at all scary (although your friends will think you did something brave)! My daughter and I had a blast!

We stayed at Pelican Cove - this was just a few miles away, so convenient and easy to get to Cheeca. What a view, with a smooth ride and a little dip for the feet. Now we want to add paragliding and hot air balloon to our bucket list. The other family went up and really had a good dip... More

It was the first time my 13 year old son parasailed and Purple Island Parasail gave him a great experience. The price was reasonable and while they said it would be a 10 minute parasail we were up for over 15 minutes. Highly recommend them!

We visited Cheeca last Year and we were unable to Parasail due to the weather/winds. But we did this year and it was worth the wait. Highlight of my 14 yr old daughters stay.

Fun time with various ages participating. Very professional and fair price. Being able to ride on the boat as a spectator was a huge plus as well.

Boat was upbeat and music was lively. The instructions for take off and landing were easy to follow. We had a group of 5 ages from 11-43 and we all had a blast!
