Tour Summary

Visitors to Nassau, Bahamas can now experience the thrills and excitement of sailing high above the sea strapped to a massive parasail. Nassau Parasailing has long been one of the Bahamas' most popular and exciting experiences. You and your friends will get to know what it feels like to soar hundreds of feet in the air, high above this Carribean paradise. Marvel at the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean beneath your feet. Observe the historic center of Nassau from a bird's eye vantage point. There is no other tour or activity in the Bahamas that offers you what parasailing does.

Parasailing is completely safe but it offers you some truly heart-pounding thrills. You will surely be holding your breath as you start floating off our boat and up into the air. Once in the air, you will get to relax as the warm Bahamas breeze hits your face and the salty scent of the ocean hits your nostrils. Beneath your feet will be the clear waters of the Atlantic where you will likely see several of the ocean's resident sea creatures. Off to the side you will get to see the beautiful and colorful historic houses of Downtown Nassau.

Nassau Parasailing is great for people of all ages. You can even go up in groups of three! The thrills you experience by soaring so high up in the air are indescribable. It is an experience that is sure to become one of the highlights of your Bahamas vacation.

What does One-Way Transportation mean?
You'll be picked up from your hotel and transported to the parasailing boat.  Afterward you'll be dropped off either at the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal or on Bay St. near the Cruise Port.

What is the weather cancellation policy?
If the activity must is cancelled due to bad weather, and you cannot reschedule, you will be issued a full refund.

Where is the departure point for this tour?
Check-in instructions will be included in your activity confirmation email.

Do you have to know how to swim in order to parasail?
No you do not, each guest is provided a life jacket that will assist with flotation

What happens if the line breaks?
The line is designed to hold up to 10,000 pounds of pressure. The average parasail ride only produces 800 pounds. It is extremely uncommon for the line to break, but if it does, you are never in any danger. If the line should break, the parachute will slowly and gently bring the parasailers to the water. The parachute is designed to land in the water behind the parasailers, never on top of them. Your lifejackets will allow you to comfortably float as the boat will immediately pick you back up.

How do we get into and out of the air?
Our custom built parasail boats will allow a smooth and easy takeoff and landing. Each parasailer, or tandem, will slowly lift off the back of the boat with ease, as you enjoy the ride in a comfortable swing-like harness. Each parasailer, or tandem, will softly land on the back of the boat in the sitting position.

Do I ever touch the water?
You do have an option of either a dry landing or "dip" in which the parachute will be lowered in the water.

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
