From the sea to the sky, there are so many incredible ways to explore all that Cabo San Lucas has to offer. If you’re looking to experience a completely unique view of this stunning region, while going on a thrilling adventure, you’ll love parasailing in Cabo.

If your first thought is, “Isn’t parasailing scary?”, check out our list of ways it’s actually the opposite!

Parasailing in Los Cabos comes with a host of fantastic advantages. From the astonishing natural scenery to the near-perfect weather conditions, here are just a few reasons Cabo is the ideal destination for your parasailing adventure.

1. Cabo’s Weather Is Perfect for Parasailing

Averaging over 300 days of sunshine per year, Cabo San Lucas’ pleasant year-round weather makes it an ideal place for an airborne activity. Clear skies, gentle wind, and warm temperatures all unite to create unforgettable conditions for parasailing on most days of the year.

Want to have an even better chance of parasailing on a clear day? Book your adventure in any month besides September and October, when Los Cabos receives the bulk of its average 10 inches of rain per year.

2. Parasailing Is Safe and Easy

When you book a parasailing adventure through Cabo Expeditions, our trained staff members will fit you with a secure harness and provide basic safety instructions because that’s all you’ll need! You can feel secure in our experienced hands; we’re the only provider of parasailing in Los Cabos that has all required safety equipment and guide certifications. Certified by the WSIA (Water Sports Industry Association), we closely abide by their rigorous operating procedures and strict safety standards.

Once you’ve heard the instructions and we’ve answered any questions you have, you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! It’s that easy. There’s no need to hang on for dear life. You can even bring your camera along and snap photos of the beautiful scenery while you’re up in the air!

Specifically designed for the sport, our parasail boat has a designated area for take-off and landing, so you don’t have to worry about ending up in the ocean or getting wet—unless you’d like to, of course! There’s always an option to skim the water during your flight if you’re feeling a little adventurous.

3. It’s an Adventurous Activity That’s Appropriate for Just About Everyone

Young or old, the entire family will love this activity. No prior experience is necessary, and you don’t have to be a skilled swimmer to participate. It’s equally enjoyable for adults and children (aged 7 and up).

With the option to parasail solo or tandem, take to the sky on your own, or share this memorable experience with your significant other, a friend, or a family member!

4. You Get an Unbelievable View

Cabo’s unique landscapes and glistening seas are beautiful from every angle, but parasailing offers a unique, bird’s-eye view that you won’t experience anywhere else. Spot the famous Arch at Land’s End, gaze at the sandy shores of Medano Beach, and view the entire natural setting of Cabo San Lucas Bay from above.

More than 20 species of whales and dolphins take advantage of this region to feed and breed, so you might even be lucky enough to spot some famous Cabo wildlife from the air. Imagine seeing a humpback whale breach as you soar above it!

5. It’s Surprisingly Relaxing

Parasailing isn’t like bungee jumping or skydiving. It’s an adventurous activity, but it also offers a feeling of tranquility and peace that might surprise you. That makes it perfect for adventure-seekers and those whose ideal vacations consist of relaxation and beauty!

Once securely harnessed in, you’ll start gently ascending toward the sky. The entire ride is smooth and calm. You’ll be slowly reeled away from the boat, and you won’t experience any sudden jolts or roller-coaster-type drops.

6. Parasailing in Cabo Is an Experience Unlike Any Other

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to fly? Parasailing offers the opportunity to experience the extraordinary sensation of soaring. Reaching heights up to 600 feet, there’s nothing quite like floating in the silent sky, especially above the azure waters of stunning Cabo San Lucas Bay. The freedom, bliss, and exhilaration of your first parasailing experience is something that will stay with you forever!
