Parasailing in Panama City Beach was started in the late 70s / early 80s by the Keltner family. This was before the Coast Guard and insurance companies were involved so needless to say, they were able to skip all the red tape and just go have a great time!
Being the early entrepreneurs they are so respected for now, the Keltner family decided to commercialize their fun and started flying tourists right off the beach. This was the beginning of parasailing in Panama City Beach. Soon after, the Holloway family started their parasail business and have been safely and successfully flying parasail rides ever since.
We purchased the name in 1984 and have been safely flying our customers for over 30 years. For years, we were the only company in Panama City Beach. As Captain Jimbo says, “if you flew parasail in Panama City Beach as a kid, you probably flew with us”. Panama City Parasail was the parasail pioneers in this area. We were the last company to stop flying rides off the beach in 1995 when we made the change to winch systems.
So if you are looking for the best in the business, with the most experience in Panama City Beach and surrounding areas, you have come to the right place.
Don’t trust your family’s safety to anyone but the best.
