Rise High Above the Beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for a New Perspective

Rising above it all is exhilarating when you fly high above the coast for a totally new perspective. Here's our bird's-eye view from a recent parasailing excursion. Without hesitation, we can tell you it's a blast!

You have never really seen our coast until you parasail 800 feet above the sugar-white sands and brilliant blue waters. That’s what we did this spring for market research. Now we can absolutely recommend that you try this form of high-flying freedom. Our parasail team at Chute ’Em Up Parasailing in Orange Beach (251-981-7673) was fabulous!

Although admittedly there was some anxiety as we pulled into Happy Harbor Marina to board the boat, quickly we were put at ease by Allen and Jack who greeted us at the dock. Captain Seth and Nolan made sure we knew all the safety info and were secured in our harness. The lift-off was a pure adrenaline rush that quickly turned into a state of bliss. The view was breathtaking, as you can see in the video. We definitely believe you should add this to your beach vacation to-do list.

There are lots of great observation points for watching parasailing if that's more your speed. Condos located near the Perdido Pass are excellent viewing stations since several parasail excursion providers operate in that area.

At Grand Pointe you can choose a gulf-front view or even a less expensive option overlooking Perdido Pass itself. Or if you can spend a week in paradise The Pass condos are upscale, spacious and have awesome views of the backwaters leading into Perdido Pass. I personally love the views from both Grand Pointe and The Pass and I believe you will too.
