We took our 6-yr old granddaughter for a ride and she had a blast. The weather was perfect. Captain Justin and mate Dillon were great and obviously experienced with giving clients a great experience. I saw many comments about the 500 vs 800 feet; it was no problem for us and we just went with the 500 ft. If you... More

When we went we assumed that we were going 800 feet up in the air but when we got up there we noticed it didn't seem very high at all. We researched more and found out you can legally only go up to 500 feet. When we confronted the woman at the desk about it, she said it is common... More

Dewey Beach Parasailing is advertising 500/800 foot parasail rides when they can only take ppl up half the distance of the line! Most people don't know that the FAA regulates that you can only go up 500 vertical feet. Dewey Parasail isn't even allowing people the maximum height. Hawaii is the only state that correctly advertises height which includes the... More

My 10 year old son had a great 1st experience with parasailing. The crew was very friendly and helped relax all the passengers on the boat. We especially loved being dipped at the end. I'd highly recommend Dewey Beach Parasailing!

My daughter convinced me to go parasailing with her. Even though I am afraid of heights I wanted to face my fears and go for it. It was an amazing fear-free experience that I would do again in a heart beat. The boat crew of Justin and Dillon made this adventure alot of fun with their humor and they were... More

I took my mother (71) and mother-in-law (71) to parasail so that they could both mark it from their bucket-lists. Dewey Beach Parasail had been recommended to us by other family members that had adventured with them while visiting the area on vacation. It was a near-perfect beach day, low humidity and warm and sunny. Our appointment was for 2:00pm... More

Our experience was so great the first day, we went back for another trip the next. The crew is excellent and efficient. We paid a bit extra for the higher trip on the first day which doesn't feel that much different than the lower trip (500ft vs 800ft) but it does extend your air time a bit. Go before noon... More
