On cruise ship days there is always at least one guy patrolling the beach at West End, trying to find customers for parasailing. If you google parasailing Roatan you will find both trip advisor reviews and a link to a website offering parasailing. There is also an tour booth on the beach, very close to the Thirsty Turtle that probably offers up parasailing too.

now that mcgosler has has woken up and had his/her coffee, he/she realizes that he/she meant to say that there is parasailing offered off the beach in WEst Bay, rather than West End. I make that slip all the time myself, pre-coffee of course.

I certainly meant West Bay. Either that or I was just trying to throw an innocent cruiser shipper off course, but that is the specialty of Mr. Idiot, so I'll leave that one for him.

Thank you all! I gather from your comments that I need to head to West Bay Beach for Parasailing. which leads to my next question Is this within walking distance or do i need a cab and whats a fair price for a cab ride and how much is Parasailing there as opposed to Cozumel?

On my last cruise parasaiing on St Martin was 90.00 however it was a windy day...

we were in Roatan in 2011 and parasailed in West Bay...we paid $60 per person...there was a nice young lad who was paroling the beach for sales...word of advice...don't drink copius amounts of rum before you go or you could end up like me puking and losing my water shoes!
