Our experience with OC Parasail was absolutely awesome! My family had never been parasailing before, and Travis and Josh took great care of us. Travis is clearly a very experienced captain, and he and Josh exuded competence and ensured we had a super smooth ride. We all loved it, and the only bummer is that the experience had to end – I could have hung out in the air all day! This was by far the highlight of our vacation. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
FUN & SO RELAXING!
I went parasailing for the first time a few weeks ago. Travis and Mike were fabulous and made the trip fun and so relaxing! True professionals! OC Parasail is a top notch organization with great employees. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
THE GUYS WERE GREAT
We went here last summer. These guys were really great! Really professional and obviously very experienced. They were very good with the kids on the boat.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you need a reservation to parasail?
We recommend that you make a reservation for your convenience. That way, you won’t have to wait for a spot to open up on one of the boats. Make sure you are aware of which location your reservation is for. If you go to the wrong location, you will miss your reservation and your seat will be given to someone who is waiting standby. If you cannot keep your reservation, it is mandatory to notify us at least two hours in advance so we can fill your vacancy.Book Online
When is the best time to go parasailing?
Mornings are the best time to go, because typically there are lighter winds in the morning, which means a better flight for you and less chop in the ocean or bay. Wind tends to pick up as the day goes on. We also are typically a little slower on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday so it is easier to get your entire group a reservation time.Book Online
Is there an age limit for parasailing?
Anyone wanting to fly that is under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or guardian sign a release form. The release form can be downloaded, printed, and signed in advanced from our web site. There is a minimum weight limit for flying alone (120 pounds), but our smallest harnesses are equipped to hold kids as light as 40 pounds. Kids under 120 pounds must fly with another person in order to reach the required minimum weight limit.Book Online
Is there a weight limit and, if so, what is it?
Yes, there is a weight limit that depends on the wind conditions at the time. Under normal conditions, we recommend that single flyers weigh at least 120 pounds. All flights, single, tandem or triple, should not exceed 400 pounds. THESE WEIGHT LIMITS CAN CHANGE depending on wind conditions. For the safety of our flyers, the captain has the final decision.Book Online
How many people can go up at the same time?
We are allowed up to 3 people in the air at one time, as long as the combined weight does not exceed the maximum weight limit at the time. As always, for our flyer’s safety, our captains have the final decision.Book Online
Are spectators allowed to go out on the boat?
As much as we would love to allow spectators to go out on the boat, flyers take first priority. If there are any available seats on the boat at the time of departure, we will gladly take spectators. It is not guaranteed, but you will have a better chance to have a spectator if you book a flight for one of our slower days—usually Saturdays, Sundays, or Mondays.Book Online
Can minors go on the boat by themselves?
Yes! Every day children go out on the ride alone. Our captains and mates are skilled professionals with many years of experience. Your child’s safety is their number one concern.Book Online
What should we wear?
Most people wear a bathing suit or shorts… however, it is usually a little cooler on the boat so we advise that you bring a sweatshirt, just in case.Book Online
Will I see any wildlife?
Frequently our flyers can see a variety of wildlife, including dolphins, sea turtles, and stingrays. Most wildlife is seen earlier in the day when the water is calmer.Book Online
Do you rent jet skis?
No; for the past 30 years we have concentrated just on parasailing. However, there are Jet Ski companies in the immediate area of both of our locations, making it very convenient to coordinate multiple activities. If you plan to do both, we recommend parasailing first, since you will be wet and possibly cold after jet skiing.Book Online
Is there anywhere that we can watch the parasailing from shore?
You will be able to see the parasails in the air from multiple viewing points, but unfortunately it is nearly impossible to identify the person in the chute from land.Book Online
Can I bring a camera with me on the boat?
Yes, but we can’t take responsibility for any lost or broken items. We do, however, offer a Professional Photo Video Package.Book Online
What is included in the Professional Photo package?
Each boat is equipped with a Nikon SLR D90 digital camera with a 300mm zoom lens. The mate will take roughly 30-50 photos throughout the flight. These are given to your group on a single rewritable CD, which can be uploaded to your computer or taken to have prints made.Book Online
What happens if we have to cancel our reservation?
We understand plans change. If for some reason you will need to cancel your reservation, we ask you notify us at least 2hrs ahead of your reserved boat departure. This will ensure we can fill the empty spaces. We do reserve the right to charge up to a 50% cancelation fee, based on your party’s total reservation, for all parties who do not notify us prior and are considered ’no shows’.Book Online
