Hunting & Gathering

BY BRITTANY MATTIE SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY JUL 10, 2020

Epic parasail adventures take place around the waters of Siesta key with Parasail Siesta. Each trip lasts approximately 2-2 1/2 hours and gets you 1,200 ft. of line and 450 ft. in the air, which is the highest legal height possible. Its Parasail boat is brand new, and the company replaces all of its harnesses, life jackets and safety equipment annually to ensure the safety of every single customerkeeping it the highest-rated parasailing company on the island.

Although parasailing is its specialty, they also offer Private Daytime Excursions as well as Sunset Dolphin Tours. “Our Private Daytime Excursions are perfect for all occasions; whether you want to have a relaxing boat day with your family or head out to the sandbar to party with your friends, we provide a boat with a USCG-certified captain to take you wherever you would like to go for a very reasonable price,” shares office manager Taylor Eason. Sunset Dolphin Tours depart every night at 7 pm and last approximately 1 1/2 hours with complimentary drinks included. “Once we board the boat over at CB's Saltwater Outfitters, we travel up the intercoastal looking for dolphins and manatees,” she says. “If and when we find them, we observe them from a safe distance making sure not to disturb them in their natural environment but getting close enough to get awesome photos and videos. Our ride comes to halt right at the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico which is also known as Big Pass where we watch the sunset with the best view in town.”

In addition to its high flying watersports and boating activities, Parasail Siesta offers another unexpected service in the form of six-passenger golf-cart rentals. “Our Golf-Carts are street legal and can travel almost everywhere on Siesta key,” says Eason. “They are perfect for commuting around the key and hauling your family back and forth from the beach!”
