Ocean Watersports is located right on the beach at 3rd Ave South. You’ll know you found them when you see the flags, which let you know you can parasail, jet ski, or ride a banana boat.
I love this picture because I know it’s at this point that we all started singing one of LC’s favorite songs from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. As we started to fly, Little Crafter shouted, “Pixie Dust away!,” which is what the pirates say on the show when they take to the air.
Fortunately, we had the perfect day for parasailing; it was gorgeous and sunny and although it was in the upper 80’s, the breeze as we flew kept us very comfortable. We went in one direction for a nice long time, then turned around and went back the other way, past Ocean Watersports in the other direction. Finally, we turned one last time and headed back.
Captain Wyatt had told us we’d be in the air for about ten minutes, and it felt like a nice long time. I could have done it all day. One of the neatest things was looking down into the ocean and seeing a few sting rays swimming near the surface.
As our ride came to an end, they lowered us down and dipped us in the ocean, which got us nice and wet from the waist down.
I instinctively pulled up my feet…I didn’t want any sharks nibbling on my toes!
