Parasailing on Castaway Cay

Hi!

I thought I read that the single parasailing had a weight limit, however all I can find now is the weight limit for tandem parasailing. Is there a lower weight limit for singles?

Thanks!!!
Michelle

Minimum weight 90, max 375(also combined weight for tandem cannot exceed 375) I just went a couple of weeks ago- it was awesome. Ask away if you have any questions.

so if my daughter weighs 80 pounds or so we would go together, right? And how high do they take you up? We are going in Sept. Thanks.

As long as your combined weight does not exceed the one stated above, you will be fine. DH and I went tandem without any problem. The view is amazing. You can see all the way to the bottom of the ocean since the water is so clear.

Thanks for the info. Do you recall how high they take you? I've done it at the beach locally but I figure they go higher there. It sounds like we will have to try to get some pictures. Thanks again.

The description on the DCL site says 600-1000 feet, but I think that we were closer to 500 feet. (More than high enough for me. ) If you are afraid to go too high, just tell them and they should adjust to a height that you are more comfortable with.

I did not see that. Thanks. I think 500 is what I did the last time. I would like to go higher but not sure how high my daughter wants to go her first time. That's why I was wondering. 1000 would be pretty high! Wow.

I thought that it sounded high when I read it. I know that we did not go that high.
