Frequently Asked Questions - Parasiling

1. What happens if the line breaks?
The line is designed to withstand 10,000 pounds of pressure. The average parasail ride only produces 800 pounds. It is very uncommon for the line to break, but if it does, you are never in any danger. If the line should break, the parachute will slowly and gently bring the parasailers to the water. The parachute is designed to land in the water behind the parasailers, never on top of them. Your lifejackets will allow you to comfortably float and the boat will immediately pick you back up.

2. How do we get in to and out of the air?
Our brand new custom built parasail boats will allow a smooth and easy takeoff and landing. Each parasailer, or tandem group of parasailers, will slowly lift off of the back of the boat with ease. You will enjoy the ride in a comfortable swing-like harness in a seated position. Each parasailer, or tandem, will softly land on the back of the boat in that same sitting position. A dip in the water is optional, and recommended, but you will always take off from and land on the boat.

3. Is there a price difference if two or three people fly together?
The prices are all per person. Whether you fly with someone, or alone, the prices remain per person. We always do our best to accommodate your requests; however, safety is our number one priority.

4. Can people go on the boat and watch?
Yes. The cost for non-flying observers is $20. However, we do not accept reservations for observers. Parasailers always have first priority. At the time of departure, if there is room available, we will allow a limited number of observers due to United States Coast Guard regulations.

5. Do we have to be able to swim?
No. All takeoffs and landings are done from the back of the boat, so if you don't want to get wet you won't have to! In the unlikely event of a mechanical malfunction, all participants are required to wear lifejackets while parasailing and you'll be in the safe hands of our highly trained crew. Anyone can fly—including the young, the old, and someone with special needs. We are happy to safely accommodate everyone.

6. Is there an age requirement?
No, although participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign their liability waiver prior to boarding the vessel. The minimum weight required to parasail is roughly 100 pounds. If the flyer is less than 100 pounds, they will simply fly tandem with another parasailer, with their combined weight not to exceed roughly 425 pounds. Weight requirements may change on any given day due to the wind conditions. Again, safety is always our number one priority.

7. Are there any weight restrictions?
Minimum weight to fly alone is roughly 100 lbs; Not exceeding roughly 425 lbs in tandem. If you have any questions or concerns about the weight of your group, just give us a call so we can work something out for you. (The captain may change these safety restrictions due to weather conditions.)

8. Do we run on the beach like in Mexico?
No. Forget about any of the crazy stories you may have heard. State of the art winch boat technology allows all takeoffs and landings to be hydraulically controlled, taking place from the back of the boat. Our parasail boats are United States Coast Guard inspected, and custom built specifically for parasailing.

10. Do you take pictures of our experience?
Yes. We offer a photo service from the boat utilizing Professional Nikon cameras with 300mm zoom lenses. The cost is $30 for a digital chip with 75 high resolution shots of you and your family’s entire adventure! Take the photos home and put them on your computer to email friends or take the chip to a local photo-shop or digital kiosk for printing, then the chip is yours to reuse! Our photographer captures the most memorable moments as you relax and enjoy the experience. Packages can be split among several participants.

13. What happens if the boat stops suddenly?
Our vessels and equipment are inspected daily and they are kept to very specific mechanical standards. In the unlikely event of a mechanical malfunction, the participants are gently lowered into the water (lifejackets are mandatory) and retrieved by another vessel in our fleet immediately. Again, you are never in any danger, the absolute worst case scenario is that you get the "special dip"!

14. Do I ever touch the water?
The entire experience can be completely dry. If requested, we will provide a “dip” in which we simply lower the parachute toward the water, which allows you to have your feet or bottom touch the water. You will then be lifted back up and continue the ride as usual. This is definitely recommended.

If we can, we will, please call or come by.
