Parasailing at Contemporary

Has anyone done this?

My husband and son are interested in trying it. Any advice on how far in advance we should make res, how long the whole adventure takes from check in through the actual ride, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks mucho!

My son and his "then" girlfriend did this when we took him for his high school graduation in 2004. We booked it about two weeks before our trip. Unfortunately, the day they were supposed to go there was lightening nearby and they had to cancel. But Sammy Duvall's group was very helpful in rearranging it another day during the trip.

Great! Be sure to take your camera. We didn't go with our son, but they took a camera and the people on the boat were happy to take pictures of them.

10 of us did this together 2 years ago (we took our adult children/spouses) and it was so much fun.

Just an FYI--it's expected that you will tip the boat captain and the person who helps the parasailers in/out of the harness setups. So take a bit of cash with ya!
