Capt. Bryan Weirich
Captain Bryan Weirich has over 20 years’ of parasail experience and is a United States Coast Guard (USCG) 100 ton master captain. His primary goal is to make sure you, your friends and your family have a safe and amazing time flying with us! Captain Bryan started mating on a parasail boat in 1996 in Virginia Beach, VA, and learned to fly from worldwide legends who pioneered the wench-boat parasailing system. Bryan moved to Florida shortly after to obtain his captain’s license and since then has trained many established parasail captains across the country.
All of our crew are CPR and First Aid Certified!
Weather is the biggest factor in safe parasailing. We will not be parasailing if sustained winds exceed 20mph with maximum wind gust of 25mph. Seas must be less than 4 feet. Purple Island Parasail is proud of our perfect (100%) safety record!
We are Islamorada’s premier parasail operator! We fly from the exclusive Cheeca Lodge & Spa!
We take pride in maintaining our beautiful boats. All parasail equipment (parasails, harnesses, multi-flyer bars) are inspected daily to insure and maintain our perfect safety record!
