  • We offer exclusively “Winch Direct Parasailing” the most widely accepted form of parasailing in the world today, this type of Parasailing allows you to safely take-off and land from a flight deck located on-board-the-boat (not from the beach or a floating barge as seen in Mexico and other resorts).
  • The process is similar to flying a kite with a fishing pole.  Utilizing a state-of-the-art hydraulic winch system, passengers are slowly lifted from a flight deck located on the stern of the vessel, after an incredible and scenic flight, they are reeled slowly back to the flight deck again.
  • Typically not, but we do sometimes dipp the feet/legs of participants in the ocean, so if you wish to stay dry, please alert the Captain prior to your flight. Also on “very rare” occasions it may be necessary to land participants in the water, although you will be wearing a life preserver, in this event you will get very wet.
  • Casual beach attire, shorts, bathing suits, sandals, tennis shoes, t-shirts, even jeans are ok, you may also want to bring a sweat shirt or wind breaker just in case, also you will be flying barefoot.
  • Swimming is not necessary, we require that all participants wear a life-vest while flying.
  • The GoPro Adventure Cam is awesome! (a must have) add-on option that allows you to capture all the fun and excitement of your flight experience using our tethered state-of-the-art GoPro equipment. The package consists of hundreds of close-up action photos and epic wide angle 4k video of your entire flight experience (from take-off to landing) you will capture all your hi-definition memories onto a class 10 micro memory card that you get to keep, all for only $49.95 (one package per flight).
  • We strongly discourage it (many passengers have lost equipment). Also, we cannot search for lost equipment and we are not responsible for any loss or damage to your equipment or personal property.  *Bring at your own risk!*
  • We are happy to discuss ideas and options related to custom tailored charters and/or events that meet your specific needs. We also specialize in developing unique (one-of-a-kind) team-building and special events. Please contact a management level staff member for details.
