If you've never been parasailing, they offer that too ....... and it's such a blast, you really must try it!

YOLO is located near the end of Andy Rosse Lane, just before the Mucky Duck, near the beach.

The waverunners, paddleboards, kayaks, and other YOLO watersports paraphernalia as well as the parasailing boat are at the beach and just a short walk away.

We decided to go parasailing and it was amazing!

What you do is park your car at YOLO, make your payment and I would suggest bringing a waterproof camera, which you can buy right there.  It doesn't come with a strap, so hold on tight to it or bring a strap if you can.  That goes for sunglasses too.

They give you a small waterproof container, perfect for putting your car keys in.

Know that you'll have to walk in the water to get to the boat, so it's best to wear a bathing suit, or shorts and top that can get wet.

Your party may not be the only one on board, so even though you only go up for 10-15 minutes, your boat ride will last about an hour.

Riders take turns, going 2 at a time, and you'll enjoy the ride as you wait to go up.

As soon as you get on the boat, the guys start setting up the balloon, ropes,  and tethers.

The first pairs of riders are put in their harnesses and then are hooked up to the balloon's tether ........ lift-off went smoothly and easily!

After they rode for awhile and came down, it was our turn to go up ........... and boy, were we excited!

We went to the back of the boat and one-at-a-time got our harnesses fastened to the balloon's tether.

Then, we sat down and slowly the balloon took us up ....... and it was amazing!

You can see for miles and it's so peaceful .......... everywhere you look you see that beautiful aqua-green water.

After a bit, they take you up higher and they cruise from one end of Captiva to the other.

You can see Pine Island on the other side of Captiva and as far down as Sanibel.

Even though the ride is only 15 minutes long,  it's just the right amount of time for the trip.

Before the end of your ride, they slowly bring you down so you can splash your toes in the water ....... it's so much fun!

Then, you go back up for a little bit so they finally reel you in onto the boat in a standing-up position.  Everything went smoothly again.

They then take you out of the tether and you take your harness off while you ride back to shore.

You can call, stop by, or make your reservation online.  Expect to pay around $70-80 per person. You can also just ride along for the fun of it if you don't want to parasail, it costs about $15 to ride along.
