We had so much fun enjoying the incredible views! I was a little nervous at first, but after watching the other couples go up, it was clear the guys knew what they were doing. Great fun, reasonably priced.

Thank you for the interest in flying with Purple Island Parasail. Good question. You only need to choose one photo package per group. It will include approximately 40-60 photos of your trip. We hope to see you soon.
