About Suncoast Watersports and Captain Dave

Since 1978, Suncoast Watersports has provided St. Pete Beach locals and visitors with an abundance of water fun and recreation, and an emphasis on parasailing. Our goal is to be a conduit for memories that last forever, and we do so by ensuring the safety and enjoyment of all of our guests. Co-owner Captain Dave Winkler is a pioneer in the parasailing industry and is regarded as one of the longest running parasail operators in the world. He is also one of the most safety-conscious.

The safety standards we apply to our parasailing operations are the same for our waverunner rentals, kayaks, paddleboards, and more. All equipment is thoroughly inspected and well-maintained between use, and we provide detailed instruction prior to use along with close supervision during use.
