Parasailing in Cozumel

Has anyone been parasailing in Cozumel through Island Marketing Ltd. Cozumel cruise excursions or have known someone who has? I'm trying to get some feedback to see how people liked it and if they thought it was worth it.

Thumbs down

Please do not do this through a private Mexican agency-their regulations leave alot alot to be desired-basically there are none-you and I could do it if we wanted to.


I have a friend that was on another cruise line and people they were cruising with did this-the husband was killed by being impailed on a fence far away from where he should have been- people on the cruise saw the whole thing.

Later the crew members told them this these accidents happen alot because they are not trained properly and just think they can run a boat and a parachute.

I would feel safer booking through Disney on CC or something.


Sorry for the morbid post but thought you should know

this is true....see parasailed on Castaway Cay and afterwards in a private conversation someone with the company was talking how the parasailing company at Castaway Cay has to be on guard 24/7 as one slip up and Disney will promptly fire them....this was in direct contrast to the Bahamas where they said the tethers and ropes are usually old and you constantly see ropes break and people float into the ocean, needing rescue...
