A great choice for an action-packed day on the Emerald Coast, Premier Adventure Park offers a range of tours, activities, and rentals that appeal to all ages.
Among the adventures on tap is parasailing: an unforgettable way to get out on—and above—the water for some sunshiny, 360-degree views. Premier Adventure Park’s safety-focused crew will get you sailing above the sparkling waters of Santa Rosa Sound, and taking a refreshing dip—if you request it—to boot. The company provides double and triple parasail rides for mutual sky-high experiences among couples, friends, and family.
For an extra charge, you can have the parasail boat crew take pictures of your flight for souvenir/social-media purposes.
Another standout offering at Premier Adventure Park is the Jet Ski Dolphin Tour: a two-hour odyssey combining revved-up wave-riding and up-close wildlife-watching. These guided jet-ski tours embark from the Premier Adventure Park waterfront at the Pensacola Beach bridge and often travel westward to Fort Pickens, Pensacola Pass, and Fort McRee.
You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the speed of your swift watercraft and the pleasure of cruising the Santa Rosa Island beachfront, but the centerpiece of the Jet Ski Dolphin Tour is—naturally—the dolphin encounters, for which there’s a high success rate. Bottlenose dolphins abound in Santa Rosa Sound and Pensacola Bay, and these curious marine mammals often take a detour to buzz boats.
Though Premier Adventure Park, like all outfitters, has to abide by legal and ethical standards regarding marine-mammal interactions, the dolphins themselves very commonly choose to give jet-ski riders an up-close look at their sleek splendor and playful acrobatics.
There’s always the chance of seeing other critters frequenting Pensacola Beach’s front-yard waters, including sea turtles and brown pelicans.
Besides the parasailing and jet-ski dolphin outings, Premier Adventure Park also rents both 12- and 16-passenger pontoon boats equipped with GPS equipment, Bluetooth stereos for an on-the-water soundtrack, and a bimini top, plus Coast Guard-required safety gear.
Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUPs) Rentals & Classes:
Through a partnership with YOLO Adventures, meanwhile, Premier Adventure Park also rents kayaks and stand-up paddleboards(SUPs), plus SUP lessons and fitness classes. The gentle inshore flats of Santa Rosa Sound are absolutely topnotch for paddling both ‘yaks and boards, whether you’re an expert or an all-out newbie, and here again there’s a decent chance you might spot the shiny back and curved dorsal fin of a nearby dolphin (or six) while you’re out and about.
That’s not all, either: Premier Adventure Park also has a slew of land-based activities to tempt you with, including a splash pad, a ropes course, and the only go-kart track in Pensacola Beach. You can also indulge in such classic beach games as cornhole, spikeball, and beach volleyball.
All things considered, you’ve got something to suit just about everybody’s taste at Premier Adventure Park, which makes it definitely worthy of consideration for any families vacationing at Pensacola Beach and looking for some crowd-pleasing fun.
-To maximize your viewing on Premier Adventure Park’s Jet Ski Dolphin Tour, come armed with a pair of polarized sunglasses. These dramatically reduce the glare on the sound’s surface, which makes for much more enjoyable and clear observations of any and all passing dolphin squads.
