Tips: - do a little research ahead of time, call a couple of the parasailing places listed on those tourist brochures - check out the coupon books - we scheduled our trip to be first thing in the morning, worked out great. Also came with discount - charges based on length of line 600, 800, 1000 ft - questions to... More

It was our first parasailing together and we loved it. The tour pricing is a bit expensive but the experience is amazing! I liked that they could take our pictures and give it to us immediately as we got out the boat in a memory card.

As long as you read the reviews and heed the various warnings you find, parasailing is fun for the kids. You almost have to let them do it once just for the experience. My kid has no interest in going again; it just wasn't that exciting. Don't pay for the photo package, go in the morning if possible because the... More

We went parasailing while we were in Virginia Beach last week. We did not make a reservation, and they accommodated us within 10 minutes of when we arrived. We had two guides with our family of four on the boat - no other customers. They gave us lifevests and explained the safety equipment to us and then we went up... More

I was looking forward to the parasaling experience for a while now but it was honestly not worth the 181 dollars I paid. The lady that checked us in was not very friendly and she seemed irritated by our questions. They sold us a digital picture package for 35 dollars with pictures that I could have easily taken with my... More

I was very nervous about my first parasailing trip. I promised I'd go, but I was reluctant, to say the least. Everyone at Rudee Inlet Parasail was supportive -- even those who injected a little humor into my nervousness... "You're hanging all the way up there on a cord that's THIS THIN!" We booked our tickets through our hotel, so... More

Captain John and his mate Dan were truly outstanding! They made us feel right at home even though some of the members of our group were scared at first about going up. It was the most spectacular way to see Virginia Beach and the ocenfront. I can't wait to go parasailing with Capt. John again next summer. It's an experience... More
