Spend a morning here riding wave runners. They were very easy to work with and have a nice large area in the bay for the wave runners. $15 off on Tuesday's.

Dameon and Jamie were great on the boat while parasailing! It was SO good that we went back twice in one week! They made it feel very safe and fun. It wasn't just fun while in the air, but also while on the boat because they were pretty funny. I would highly recommend... 10 out of 10 boys!

Dameon and Jamie made this experience super fun! They go above and beyond for everyone whether you choose to just ride on the boat or actually go parasailing!

We had a crazy trip with Ken. He gave the kids great rides on their "tube." Everyone fell off. We had a very enjoyable experience all around. Special thanks to Stephanie?? in the office for making everything happen smoothly. Can't wait to come again next year.

I went parasailing, I chose Nor'Banks because of the Yelp ratings and I was not disappointed. The captain was very safety-minded and was nice and professional the whole time we were on the boat. I highly recommend using Nor'Banks if you want to go parasailing or rent a jetski or sailboat.

My kids and I went parasailing for the first time and it was a great experience. As the last review mentioned Jamie and Dameon were great. Safety came first with everything, they explained everything for us, and also provided a great lesson on the bay during the trip.

Awesome ride by Captain Ken. He tubed our pants off...literally! 😂 Our boys had a blast and Captain Ken made sure we had many waves and laughs along the way.
