Parasailing in Key Largo
Key Largo, Florida
by John McNamara
I always wondered what it would be like to have the ability to
fly. If I could fly, where would I go? What would I want to see
from a birds eye view? The Grand Canon? No, it probably looks
the same from 300 feet in the air as it does at ground level. I
would see the same big hole. How about flying around the Rockies?
No, that would probably take away from the power of the height of
the mountain line. I know, I would love to fly over the islands
of the Florida Keys! Could you imagine the view! Being 300 feet
in the air, able to see twenty-five miles of crystal blue water
and magnificent islands. The only masses separating the Atlantic
Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico are the islands and mango trees. What
a breathtaking view!
You can get this view in Key Largo by Parasailing at Caribbean
Watersports. They will allow you and a partner to fly 300 feet
above sea level off the back of a speed boat to absorb the
breathtaking views the birds of the south have been hiding from
us for all of these years. No wonder why the birds fly south. Just
an hour drive south of Miami is Caribbean
Watersports, located in Key
Largo along highway U.S. 1 at Milemarker 97. Here is where you
can fly like a bird and enjoy the Florida Keys like you never have
My wife and I let the crew attach us to a large Smiley Face parachute
and we flew tandem during our visit. At first, I felt a bit nervous
about the height, but after we got off the platform the fear was
gone. The security of the straps and the smoothness of the ride
confirmed that the heights were not going to be a problem (At that
moment I realized that I was not afraid of heights; I was afraid
of falling to the earth).
We soared over Florida Bay and Key
Largo and absorbed some of the most beautiful sights ours eyes
had ever seen. From high in the air, we could see clearly through
the water to the sandy bay floor; the whole while spotting fish,
manatee and dolphin swimming freely throughout the Florida Bay.
The cruise lasted about 20 minutes; at that point we started to
make our decent back to the rear of the boat. Far too soon we made
a smooth landing and we were back on the boat at sea level.
Flying 300 feet above the Keys and Florida Bay was an amazing adventure.
The breathtaking views were more beautiful than words can describe.
Next time you are in the Florida Keys be sure to visit Caribbean
Watersports and take a flight parasailing over Florida Bay.
