We had 11 family members plus one solo stranger on the boat. We called the stranger Randy. :) We had a great time. We had one of the guys take pics of us. We then paid for the SD card at checkout. I've been White Water Rafting, Zip Lining and now Parasailing. It was 12 mins in the air for... More

Too bad they hooked all 3 together and they only had 8 minutes in the air. I was also disappointed that they wanted to charge me an extra 30 bucks to ride in the boat after paying 255 for 3 kids. I hate nickel and dime stuff like that. I think there is likely better value elsewhere. That said Traverse... More

I flew with my 5 & 7 year old kids and we had a wonderful time. The guys on the boat are super, had great attitudes, and played on the expectations of the crowd. They were super with the kids, gave the experienced guests a little extra (wet) excitement, and had a little fun with the more nervous guests. Overall,... More

Our family made same day reservations to go parasailing and it was so much fun! The staff was great with our 8 and 10 year old kids - calming them right down and making it a great experience. We also bought their photo package and were very pleased we did - they got great shots of all of us. Amazing... More

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.
