While traveling through northwest Michigan this summer, we spent some time in Traverse City! I reserved a 6:00pm flight for my 80 year old Mom, daughter and myself with Traverse Bay Parasail. We had the best time! My mother has never parasailed in her life and absolutely loved the experience of flying up at the sky in the warm summer... More

Our experience at Traverse Bay Parasail on 8-31-14 was Amazing! The staff was super friendly and the boat was clean. You won't believe the view from above the water is so pretty. I would recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in a fun activity in Traverse City!

As another review mentioned, I was also very nervous to try para sailing. I am so glad that I decided to give it a try. It is so smooth, and so peaceful 400 feet up. It is so quiet up there, and you just feel like you are floating. The only part I didn't like was when it ended. Getting... More

We did this excursion as the kids wanted to do something different for excursion. We saw the parasail brochure in our hotel lobby and also saw the parasail from west bay beach. We did our reservations but the weather didnt permit for us for 2 days. The staff called us and let us know timely about the cancellation. This place... More

This was one of the highlights of the trip for my husband and sons. My daughter and I went along as riders to watch and photograph them as they "flew." It was fun for all of us. The captain and mate were personable and good at what they did. It was $90 for each of the flyers, and $30 each... More

I love this. I've been going every year for the last 3 years and just booked my next appointment. Definitely one of the coolest things to do in TC. Get dipped when you do it too, that's probably my favorite part.

Probably never would've even thought of doing this but our daughter made it a priority to make us do it. We did tandems and have to say it is so cool being 400' above the bay just floating around. The crew was just awesome in making you feel comfortable and relaxed, I would do it again with no hesitations.

The staff was great. My boys had a super time. Peaceful, not scary and just beautiful. All four of us would do it again!

My 11 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Traverse Bay Parasail. It was unbelievably easy to sign up, get out on the boat, and get up in the air! We squealed with delight as the boat pulled away from us and we floated up - it was surreal. I just wish I had known it was... More
