Default parasailing excursion in Key West

For anyone who has done this one, are you allowed to bring a camera up so you can take photos while you're up there?

it seems that they also take photos of you that you can purchase - is that the case as well and if so, are they good photos?

Thanks!

I would suggest bringing a water camera on the parasailing trip. If you would drop it by heaven sakes, you wouldn't lose your expensive digital camera or more. taking pics from up there would be awesome, but in your excitement who knows what may happen. Just my HO!!

Thank you, what an excellent suggestion; I will plan to do that if I do this excursion.

Glad I could help!!! I parasailed once, and it was great, ready to do it again with my kids when we go on the Liberty. It was quite a view up there. Just do it, lol.

Personally I would love to take a video camera parasailing. Awesome vacation footage.

No doubt it would be awesome footage, sound and all. With my luck though, I'd get too excited and drop the darn thing or we would go in the water. The one time I did go, the driver of the boat was making a long turn and was talking to the females in the boat, and forgot about myself and a friend. We came within 20-30 ft of the water before he straightened out and we flew back up again. Was getting ready to get wet, but hey, it was fun and will do it again.

Well, when it comes to video footage, I am the man to bring along. It's kinda what I do. Of course, since you mentioned that I may want to wait until I have a waterproof case for the camera first.
