  • Fun and 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.

  • Friendly Staff!

    My mother and I went parasailing here in the beginning of September. This is our second time going up with OC Parasail on Talbot street. I also went up myself a long time ago. We went up tandem and went 800 feet. My Dad and husband rode along but didn't go up this time. They charge just 10.00 to ride the boat as a spectator. The staff was very friendly and fun. They did things very safely. The weather was not a perfect condition for parasailing this time. It was pretty windy and we swayed quite a bit which was a bit scary! Usually it is very quiet and calm while being up there. So we didn't enjoy it quite as much this time due to the weather. But again, the two young guys we had in our boat were very nice and made the adventure fun for us all. I would choose this parasailing company if you are considering to go. They always do a nice job!

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.

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 Now!

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.

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 Now!

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.

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 Now!

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.

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.

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.

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 Now!

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.

Yes, but we can’t take responsibility for any lost or broken items. We do, however, offer a Professional Photo Video Package.

Book Now!

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.

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’.
