The best views of The Bahamas are from above. If you're visiting The Bahamas, one of the first things on your to-do list should be to go parasailing. There's no experience quite like strapping yourself to a giant sail and soaring over the water like a bird. The experience is thrilling, and the views are breathtaking. Our agents have compiled a list of the best places in the Nassau and Paradise Island areas to go parasailing.
- Paradise Ocean Sports Ltd. - East Bay Street
A Nassau-based company, Paradise Ocean Sports offers a variety of water activities, from jet skiing to banana boating to snorkeling. However, one of their most popular activities is parasailing over the crystal blue waters of Paradise Island. Good for beginners, you can spend between 3 and 5 minutes in the air—either riding by yourself or in tandem with someone else. Then when you're done, enjoy a lunch of barbecue chicken and rum punch or fruit punch.
- Boss Trips - Yamacraw Shores
Boss Trips is more than just a standard tourism company. Heralding themselves as a VIP concierge service, they let you experience The Bahamas in luxury. Your parasailing adventure lets you spend 10-12 minutes in the air for $100. You can also swim with turtles, dolphins, or even pigs! There are other animals you can meet as well, including sharks, sea lions, and stingrays. Once you book your adventure, they'll take care of everything and go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. Take a look at these Yamacraw homes for sale before or after your trip.
- My Own Water Sports Ltd. - Cruise Ship Port, Festival Place
If you're looking at Paradise Island homes for sale while visiting The Bahamas, you may decide to take up some water sports as a hobby once you get settled. My Own Water Sports Ltd. has you covered on that front. The 6-minute parasailing trip, available Monday through Saturday, is their crown jewel, but they also offer half-hour and hour-long jet-skiing experiences, snorkeling, and more. If you want to get a group together, you can even try their 10-person banana boat adventure.
- Snorkel Adventure Bahamas - East Bay Street
As its name implies, the main focus of Snorkel Adventure Bahamas is snorkeling. Close to these East Bay Street homes for sale, the company offers breathtaking snorkeling tours in both Nassau and Freeport, where you can see beautiful coral reefs and reef fish. However, they also offer several combo tours that include other water sports, such as parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking, and more. There are also private charter boats available.
- Adventure Parasail - Downtown Nassau and Paradise Island
Rather than offering a lot of different water sports, Adventure Parasail focuses just on parasailing—making them one of the best in The Bahamas. Open Monday through Sunday (depending on the weather), they'll fly singles, doubles, or even triples, depending on weight distribution. There are two locations: one in Downtown Nassau and one on Paradise Island. Both offer between 6 and 8 minutes in the air—perhaps the most thrilling 6 to 8 minutes of your life.
Parasailing is just one of the many incredible things you can do when you visit The Bahamas. There are beautiful beaches, amazing wildlife, and much more. If you're ready to make Nassau or Paradise Island your new home, contact us. We'll help you find your dream house in paradise.
