The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
Our Kids Saw a Shark when Parasailing in Destin
How did you discover this activity?
Some friends recommended TripShock to us last year after they used them to book some activities on their vacation. This was our second year booking through TripShock!
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We booked our parasailing adventure a couple of weeks before our trip, it was a super easy process.
Why did you choose this activity?
Our family takes our annual summer vacation trip to the South Walton area. We love to relax on the beach and at the pool, but thought parasailing would be a fun addition. After going last year, we knew we had to go this vacation, too!
How did you get to the activity location?
Getting to the harbor was maybe a 30 minute drive from where we stayed on Dune Allen beach.
What was your experience with the activity's staff?
Captain Christian and his first mate Greg were awesome! They were funny and attentive. They gave great recommendations on places to eat and visit while in the area.
We also chose to purchase the pictures they take while on the boat. Greg took some awesome pictures that will make for some great memories!
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
We have been coming to the South Walton area with our family for the past 12 years. It is our favorite vacation spot; beautiful and relaxing. We decided to add parasailing to our vacation last year, and decided it had to become a yearly tradition!
Last year, we parasailed in the bay, but this year we were able to go into the Gulf! The water was gorgeous, and the view from up above was spectacular! Our kids swear they saw a shark! I looked, but all I saw were some jellyfish, super cool view regardless! We made some great memories, and can’t wait to book again next year!
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
Our group ranged in age from 7 to 60. This is a great activity for all ages. We had 3 who chose not to parasail, but took the boat ride with us, everyone enjoyed the trip!
