Compared to other activities, parasailing can be a bit expensive but the barrier reef off Providenciales is amazing to see from the air. We highly recommend that you check the weather reports and try to book on a sunny day with light wind so you’ll get the best views. Overcast and stormy days reduce water clarity and severely detract from the experience.
4 star rating for Providenciales Parasailing by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands
Parasailing in Grace Bay, Providenciales.
Available in the Grace bay Region of Providenciales, parasailing is another exciting way to experience the sun and ocean.
From high above the ocean, many of the larger sea creatures can be seen swimming below, including turtles and dolphins, and an unforgettable view is obtained of the network of coral that makes up the barrier reef. During smooth conditions, it’s also possible to see starfish in the clear sandy areas.
Unlike in some other countries, custom parasailing powerboats are used here, with proper decks and winch systems. This means that rides are safer, and you don’t have to get wet – unless you want to!
Average flights are about 15 to 20 minutes, and are capable of reaching nearly 500 feet. The local parasail captains don’t really have a set minimum age, and depending on total weight, it’s possible for up to three people to ride per flight. No experience in necessary to ride and no controls are operated by the rider.
Although excursions can be arranged by dealing directly with the parasail captains on the beach, reservations are preferred. When space is available, observers are usually allowed to ride along for a nominal fee. Private charters are also offered.
