First time parasailing. We were a bit nervous, but the staff is very friendly and reassuring. We had a great time and want to do it again! I would definitely recommend North Beach Watersports and will try jet skiing next.

Great time out on my first experience parasailing. The staff were very friendly, nice new boats, very clean and professional. I’m glad we went early as it was not too busy at that time.

The jet skis were $74 for a 1/2 hour and $109 for an hour. They give a $10 discount if you pay in cash. The area is marked off for the jet skis and there are no boats allowed in the area.

There is no age requirement. We have flown as young as 4 and as old as 96. However there is a weight requirement for the chute. We need at least 120lbs combined weight in the chute.
