Parasail Information:

Are there any age or weight requirements?

There are no age requirements, but there are weight requirements. Guests need to weigh around 70 pounds. They can go by themselves depending on the strength of the wind. The stronger the wind the more weight that is needed in the parasail. If someone does not weigh enough to go by themselves they can usually go up with someone.

How long does it take?
Each person is in the air around 10 minutes. You are on the boat anywhere from a half hour to an hour depending on the number of people that are participating.

How high do you go?
We use a 600′ towline so you will get anywhere from 350′ to 400′ off the surface of the water.

How many people can go at one time?
Our boats can carry a maximum of 6 people per trip. We have three boats available so we are capable of taking up to 18 people per hour for larger groups.

Do you have to get wet?
We utilize a system of Parasailing called controlled parasailing. This system utilizes a hydraulic winch and a platform (flight deck) that is built onto the back of the parasail boat. Guests are gently lifted from the flight deck on the back of the boat and land right back on board the boat. It is the safest most modern method of Parasailing available. You do not have to get wet if you do not want to, but a fun part of the ride is towards the end when the captain can slow the boat down and touch your toes in the water.
