Rules and Regulations:

WEATHER:  Parasail flights depend entirely on the weather. We will not be parasailing if sustained winds exceed 20mph with maximum wind gust of 25mph. Seas must be less than 4 feet. Weather is the biggest variable with parasailing, to be specific wind is the biggest factor. It’s the ‘Parasail Captain’s Call’ on determining if weather conditions will permit the parasailing.

AGE REQUIREMENTS:  Children under the age of 18 MUST have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver for them before boarding the boat (I.D. Required). MBP can email the minor waiver to be filled out prior, if your children are going to be accompanying another family or group on a trip to Miami Beach.

PHYSICAL RESTRICTIONS: If you are PREGNANT, have a HEART CONDITION, BAD BACK or any other physical conditions that will be aggravated by potential rough conditions on the ocean or the parasail flight.  In the name of safety for you, other participants and our crew. The MBP staff has the right to determine if an individual is fit to participate in parasailing activity. We want everybody to have the best experience possible.

WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS: It is the ‘Parasail Captain’s Call’. We always do our best to accommodate your request on how and who you fly with. However, SAFETY is our number one priority. The parasail requires a certain amount of weight to perform a safe flight. The weight parameters may change at the time of your ride due to changing wind and ocean conditions. Parasailing is a dynamic activity. For this reason, small children or lighter passengers may have to fly with an adult or larger passenger. Again in the end, it is  the ‘Parasail Captain’s Call’.   Minimum weight for a single flyer going up in the air by themselves is 150lbs. (68kg). Maximum weight is 450lbs (204kg). This would be the maximum combined weight for 2 or 3 people flying together. Again, these parameters may change at time of ride.

FLIGHT TIME:  The whole activity can take up to 1 hour if you are on a full trip. Our trips are normally made up of a group of 6 passengers. Parasail flight times are as followed: Single flyer approximately 7-9 minutes; 2 flyers approx. 10-12 minutes; 3 flyers approx. 13-15 minutes.

OBSERVERS:  Are only taken if there are open seats for that trip. They are taken on a first come first serve basis for a fee of $30 per person.

Other things you need to know about Parasailing with MBP

We are located physically on the beach behind the Loews Hotel at 1601 Collins Ave. IMPORTANT you cannot walk through the hotel, you must walk around it. Please use the Lincoln Road beach access or the paved pathway between the Loews Hotel and Royal Palm Hotel to walk out on to the beach. Once you have made it to the beach, you will then need to look for the water sports area. Look for the RED UMBRELLAS along with vertical Stars and Stripes banner flag. The banner flag is the marker for water sports area. Our RED UMBRELLAS have the word PARASAIL printed on it.

Parking, there is NO FREE parking in Miami Beach. But there is some cheap parking across the street from the Loews Hotel @ 236 16th St., Anchor Shops Garage. Try this parking garage first.

Any personal belongs can be kept in our beach box or dry storage box. Electronic equipment is permitted on the boat and while your parasailing, at your own risk. Plan according with waterproof cases or something to protect your devices. The wettest part of this activity potentially is going from the beach to parasail boat on our shuttle boat.

Plan on getting wet. If ocean conditions are calm you will be getting your feet wet. If ocean conditions are rough, more than your feet will be getting wet. In general it is just a momentary splash of water. It’s just water, we will all survive.

The ‘Photo Package’. MBP crew takes pride in capturing your parasail experience on camera. Some of the best photos are when you are just leaving the boat and ascending into the air, coming in for a dip in the water and landing back on the boat. Not every picture is going to be a “perfect 10”. We are on a moving boat with some difficult lighting conditions at certain times. However, we believe we take a big enough sample size of photos that you are going to end with some “perfect 10’s.”
