Parasail FAQ

No, if you can walk onto our parasail boat by yourself and if you can sit down, you should be able to parasail.

Each parasail boat has a self-contained launch and recovery system. You safely take-off and land directly from the back of the boat.

You don’t have to get wet. Getting wet can be half the fun. We’ll dip your toes if you request to get wet (at no additional charge).

The minimum weight to fly alone is 40lbs., but it does increase and decrease depending on wind and water conditions. The maximum combined weight limit is 600lbs. This depends on whether conditions, as well. The minimum age allowed to fly or ride along is now four years old due to new insurance restrictions.  We have a very comfy waiting area, we are next door to a local’s favorite restaurant and raw bar  ”Big Sam’s” and a large marina with a lot of great sights to see.

Each flight averages 8-12 minutes from take-off to landing. The higher you choose to go, the longer the flight. The whole adventure, once you leave the dock, is about an hour.

We are the only parasail company in Virginia Beach licensed and insured to fly up to 3 people.

Our flights range from 600-1000 feet of line. The 1000 foot flight is our most popular ride, you are as high as the hotels and you can see for miles down the beautiful coastline, inland and offshore.

No one parasailing has ever been attacked by a shark or any other fish. You will be parasailing over the Atlantic Ocean. There are sharks in the ocean, but we can confidently say they have never been interested in parasailing.

To insure this never happens, we insist on a rigorous maintenance program for all our equipment. In the unlikely event of problems with the boat or tow line, the parasail would slowly float down and gently land in the water. Safety flotation jackets are worn by all fliers, so there is no risk of drowning. The boat will circle around immediately, so by the time you land safely in the water, we’ll be there to pick you up.

Sorry, no pregnant women can fly or ride out on the boat as an observer because of new state safety and insurance regulations.  No exceptions, sorry., safety comes first with us.

Unfortunately, due to the bumpiness of the boat ride, we suggest you don’t fly or ride as an observer.

That depends on each individual’s abilities. To fly you must be able to get on the boat. Once onboard, you will be harnessed and will need to walk about 10 feet and up three steps, to the flight deck. If you can manage these steps on your own, you can parasail. Our crew can assist, but is unable to physically carry passengers.

Feel free to bring a camera on the boat. However, we only allow waterproof or disposable cameras up in flight, for obvious reasons.

We suggest you wear your bathing suit or something light and cool, that you don’t mind getting wet.

Absolutely! Parasailing is one of the most popular activities in Virginia Beach, so we suggest you make reservations to make sure we have a spot for you on one of our boats.

We require 24 hours notice of a cancellation for a complete refund.
