This was a last minute idea, and although my girlfriend is afraid of heights was able to talk her into going. The crew that took us made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed and even told us to grab a beer before we left. So we did! it was a very peaceful experience and my girlfriend found herself loving every second... More

We were staying in Frisco and made the trip to Ocracoke to go parasailing. When we arrived the only spot available was the last one of the day, 6PM. We waited and it was well worth it, an amazing experience!!!

We had booked an afternoon slot and the day was windy on shore with on and off rain. Captain O'Neal came in from a trip and shook his head 'no' at us. He explained the last group was really tossed about out there and that he felt it was not safe to put our kids through that. He could have... More

One of the best things I have ever experienced! The people are great, some of the friendliest I've met. Do not come to the Outer Banks and not go parasailing at Ocracoke Island Inc.with Captain Ferris!

These guys were awesome. Took my daughter and friends up. They taylored the experience to where others were watching from as well as how they wanted to ride (wet v. not wet). Professional, quality equipment and focused on making sure the patrons had a great time. They even let dad come along to video tape the experience. Pics coming soon!... More

I am giving the Ocracoke Parasail company 5-stars and get this, I was suppose to parasail at 9AM on a Thursday and yet they did not actually fulfill the sail until 26 hours later! It all comes down to customer service, and trust me this company "gets it." My wife and I have never parasailed before, but were told by... More

We just arrived back from Ocracoke and and I must confess "Ocracoke Parasail" was the best experience we had there. They were friendly and helpful. Our girls now have a memory that will last a lifetime. If you visit Ocracoke Island you must go parasailing... Thank you!

My daughter and I went up to 800 feet where we were able to see all over the Islands of Ocracoke and Portsmouth Islands. We also got great pictures of Dolphins.
