Fantastic, must see view of the island and Silver Lake Harbor. So much history there. You can just imagine the pirate ships sailing in the inlet to rest in the secluded harbor. It's also the most peaceful place 800 feet up where all you here is your breath. Wonderful view of the dolphin, if you are lucky!

We arrived Friday and went by to sign up ..they set the appointment for Wednesday and then called to change it to Tuesday. They waited until we got there... More

Fantastic! I was most impressed with our Captain's knowledge of the waters, the wind and a master boatsman. I have 2 kids ages 8 and 10 and safety was always the top priority. We had to reschedule a couple of times due to high winds and weather systems, and I felt totally confident once we had the opportunity to go... More

First of all I want to say that our eventual ride was awesome. The captain and crew was awesome and super kind. They treated us very well. My husband works with the public and I know how annoying it is when people have to find something to complain about, but I feel like my review this time is very justified.... More

This was a last minute idea, and although my girlfriend is afraid of heights was able to talk her into going. The crew that took us made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed and even told us to grab a beer before we left. So we did! it was a very peaceful experience and my girlfriend found herself loving every second... More

We were staying in Frisco and made the trip to Ocracoke to go parasailing. When we arrived the only spot available was the last one of the day, 6PM. We waited and it was well worth it, an amazing experience!!!

We had booked an afternoon slot and the day was windy on shore with on and off rain. Captain O'Neal came in from a trip and shook his head 'no' at us. He explained the last group was really tossed about out there and that he felt it was not safe to put our kids through that. He could have... More

Last minute decision to parasail during our visit to ockracoke. Called up last minute & they accommodated us at a perfect time slot. My 2 teenagers did a double ride. The guys are laid back are personable & let's face it who wouldn't love to be on a boat all day!!! We rode along and took our own pics but... More

One of the best things I have ever experienced! The people are great, some of the friendliest I've met. Do not come to the Outer Banks and not go parasailing at Ocracoke Island Inc.with Captain Ferris!
