Parasailing from Madeira Beach
Parasailers starting at $65 · Observers $15
With three 12-passenger U.S. Coast Guard inspected parasailing boats, Gators Parasail can handle your large family function or company event.
Our larger, inspected parasailing boats provide a ride that is safer, drier and more comfortable than what you’d experience on the smaller, uninspected six-passenger boats. All of our captains are US Coast Guard licensed and our experienced crew is fully trained.
Gators Parasail has a business license with the City of Madeira Beach and maintains full insurance on all passengers, crew, business operations, and vessels. Unlike other parasailing operations, you board our boats from the safety and convenience of our dock. No need to get in the water and climb onto the boat — this way you can stay dry the entire time.
The “Fly Zone” for your parasailing adventure is less than five minutes from our dock, so it doesn’t take long for the fun to begin.
Your flight begins seated on the back deck of the parasailing boat with a friend or two. In seconds, you are gently lifted into the air, enjoying the view of the Tampa Bay beaches from high above the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
For the more adventurous… tell the captain or mate you’d like to be dipped during your ride and, if conditions allow, you can get dipped from your toes to your nose! A freefall to simulate parachuting is included in your ride too.
Too soon, it seems, the captain lands you like a feather, on your feet, on the back deck of your parasailing boat.
There’s no charge for the dolphins you see while in flight or on the boat as you cruise along the white sand beaches between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Parking in historic John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk in Madeira Beach is available in the Street Parking Spaces and in the Central Parking Lot. Be sure and pay at the kiosks. You can also use the six floor Parking Garage.
John’s Pass Park Beach Lot is another easy-to-get-to parking lot with under-the-bridge access to John’s Pass.
The lot, with nearly 100 spaces, is located on the extreme south-west corner of John’s Pass. To get there, simply turn West off Gulf Blvd just at the foot of the John’s Pass Bridge on the Madeira Beach side. Be sure to pay the meters. After you park, walk east under the John’s Pass bridge, and you will be right at the West side of the Boardwalk! Gators Parasail is near the East end of the Boardwalk.
