Wasn't sure what to expect but had a great time. The boat ride was nice and taking off and landing went smoothly. Once you are up in the air it's more quiet and slow moving than I imagined it would be. Loved our captain. He was very attentive about our safety.

If parasailing is on your bucket list, contact these folks. They operate out of the beautiful East Grand Traverse Bay. They're friendly, professional, timely and fun! The boat ride itself was a fantastic experience, and they handle the whole parasail flight professionally. They ensured that each person had fun and felt comfortable. I'd love to come back and do it... More

You have to use this parasailing service when in TC. Great desk staff and boat captain. I recommend buying the photo package. They got great shots of our kids in the air, as well as pictures of my husband and myself on the boat.

Parasailing and Kayaking was it for us today. We had a great time and would totally do this again. The crew from the front desk to the ones on the boat made everything very fun and easy. The quietness once you were up In the sky was amazing and the view was just as good. Thanks for the dip in... More

My 70-something dad took my teen parasailing for her birthday & they had a fabulous time! The views were amazing & they said it felt completely safe. It was even fun watching them from the dock :) Staff were all very friendly & helpful and if you want, they’ll bring you down low to dip your toes in the water.... More

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

We thank you for your business. It sounds like the kids had a good time in the air together and that is the most important thing! I am sorry to here that you didn't think it was the best value. Just as a point of reference, skydiving costs about what you paid, but for just 1 participant to free-fall for... 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
