FAQ's

Q: IS IT SAFE?

A: Yes, it is completely safe. Our captain has safely flown over 80,000 happy people in his 10 years of flying.

Q: WHAT IF THE BOAT BREAKS OR THE ROPE BREAKS?

A: Our maintenance of the equipment ensures this happens very rarely. In the unlikely event of problems, flyers and parachute slowly float down and you get wet. Everyone wears lifejackets and the mate is an exceptional rescue swimmer. Remember your parachute is already open!

Q: IF WE GET WET WILL THE SHARKS GET US?

A: Sure the ocean is the sharks home but no one parasailing has ever been attacked by a shark or any other fish, EVER!

Q: WHAT IF I CAN'T SWIM?

A: Since you take off and land on the boat and are wearing a life jacket, you do not need to know how to swim. In the event of a water rescue, one of our other boats will retrieve you or the mate is a very good swimmer and will pull you back to the boat. So lay back and enjoy the swim and let the mate do the work.

Q: HOW LONG IS THE FLIGHT?

A: The boat trip lasts approximately an hour, dependent on number of flyers and location of parasail ride, and each flight lasts from 10-15 minutes.

Q: ARE THERE AGE AND/OR WEIGHT REQUIREMENTS?

A: We recommend starting kids at the age of 6. Total weight in parachute needs to be between 100 and 450-lbs. For safety reasons the captain has the final say.

Q: WILL WE FLY IN THE OCEAN OR THE SOUND?

A: The wind and waves decide where the captain will want to do the tour. Based on Mother Nature.

Q: IS IT VERY WINDY OR COOLER IN THE PARACHUTE?

A: The wind and temperature will be the same as on the boat.

Q: DO YOU PARASAIL WITH ANY TYPE OF BOAT?

A: Our boat is custom built for this purpose. It is very stable and powerful. It has a strict maintenance schedule and gets lots of attention.

Q: DO WE RUN OFF THE BEACH LIKE IN MEXICO?

A: No, you take off and land on the boat.

Q: IS THERE A PRICE DIFFERENCE IF TWO FLY TOGETHER?

A: Tandem (double) flights up to 450 lbs. of combined weight are available. Prices are per person whether flying alone or in tandem.

Q: CAN PEOPLE GO ON THE BOAT AND WATCH

A: Yes. The cost for non-flying passengers is $15. These passengers are on a standby basis only. Observers do have the option of upgrading to flyer status while on the boat.

Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE FIT ON THE BOAT?

A: Only 6 total passengers may come on the boat with the captain and the mate. The 6 people include flyers and observers. If you party is greater than 6 we will set up back-to-back reservation times for your group.

Q: DO WE HAVE TO GET WET?

A: No, you do not have to get wet, you can stay dry if you wish, it is the flyers choice to get dipped.

Q: HOW HIGH DO WE GO WHEN WE FLY?

A: Typically, depending on the wind, you will fly half the length of the height chosen off the water. If you choose an 800 foot flight, that refers to the amount of line, you will be 400 feet about sea level, however; if we have a good breeze the parachute will fly higher.
