Watch out for Mr. Safety himself! You won’t meet a more energetic captain/owner than USCG Licensed Captain Neil Newton! Neil was born and raised in Missouri and has been a part of the Paradise Parasail team for over 25 years! He graduated from South West Missouri State University in 1999 and is currently serving as Chairman of the Commercial Parasail Vessel Operations for the ASTM. Neil has spent the last 7 years working closely with the top leaders in the industry, including the USCG and the WSIA (Water Sports Industry Association), to develop safety standards and bring awareness to other parasail operators. As owners, he and his wife are focused on making Paradise Parasail the safest and most exciting adventure around!
When you don’t see Neil behind the Captain’s seat, he can be found spending time with his wife and 2 boys. An adventure seeker himself, Neil enjoys fishing and diving in any open water or cooking up his latest catch of the day!
