My dad, my husband, my 11 year old, 9 year old and I went parasailing. The captain and other employee were fabulous! Played great music, talked with all of the guests and made everyone feel relaxed! The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was because they didn’t let us know we could be dipped in the water while we were flying. They said you had to ask but we didn’t know that until we were on our way back to the dock. It was super hot and that would have felt great! Moral of this review: ask to be dipped! 😜

Easy to book online and worth the money! Really neat experience. Friendly staff and captain. They thoroughly explain everything that's going to happen and what to do if things don't go as planned during your flight. Nothing that sounded too scary to us. It was very windy on that day so we were getting picked up pretty high! The wait was short because there were only two other flyers and it was before noon so it wasn't too hot yet. Those were added bonuses to the experience. We were able to book an early spot the night before since it was after Labor Day.If I was going in the middle of the summer I would definitely schedule earlier because they fill up quick and you might be on the boat a while. If you're on the fence about it, do it! You'll be glad! It is not scary and it will not take your stomach away like I was expecting. There are picture packages and go pro rentals available for a little extra. We got the picture package for an extra 25 bucks. It was worth it! There are souvenir tees available and those guys are definitely earning their tips. Just throwing that out there for those that like to have cash on hand for those types of things. Your things will be safe on the boat. We only carried a bag with water, towels and sunblock. Didn't even need to towels because we didn't get a drop of water on us the whole time.

This is a must do on vacation. The sweetest girl pleasantly checked us in and ensured we had all we needed to capture our amazing experience while 🪂 Parasailing. The boat was clean and beautiful. The handsome driver of the boat was very knowledgeable and ensured our safety at all times and made the ride so much fun. The 2 adorable men rigging us up were knowledgeable and also made our experience amazing. I felt safe at all times and enjoyed every second of this breathtaking experience. We will be doing this every year on our summer vacation.

I don’t often write negative reviews, but hear me out. Spent $350 of my hard earned money for parasailing for 4 kiddos. As we were waiting to go out they let over a dozen others go ahead of us because they needed “groups of 3”, the process took almost 2 hours. Group in front of us came to the line and warned everyone they were rushed into harness and had to tell the crew they didn’t attach properly moments before they were sent up. I went over to ask the lady at the booth to please radio the boat and tell them to slow down because my kids were about to go up. She looked up from her phone long enough to say, “they’ll be fine”. THEN, we noticed the first two went up and quickly came down. I asked my wife to time the other kids and they were up for 4 MINUTES! It says you are up in the air for 10 minutes. I told one of the guys helping and he said “I have nothing to do with what they are doing on the boat”. I called to talk to the owner last night and again this morning. The lady I spoke to said she gave him the message to call me back but he was busy. So, $350+ for two 4 minute rides with NO ONE taking responsibility for safety concerns, lack of time spent on ride, and returning a customers call. I’m a fair person and this is NOT FAIR. Shameful to take advantage of people.

My sister and I were in Port A for her 60th birthday. She signed us up on Monday for a Tuesday trip. She was going to parasail and I was going to observe. From the time we arrived on Tuesday to the time we left, everyone was professional and help make this a great experience. Check-in was easy, the worker was friendly. Once we were on the boat, Tim and Shaun were the best. They were friendly and explained everything. I wasn't planning on going but they gave me that opportunity to change my mind. I did and I am so glad I did. I was scared but it was well worth it. They made a memory for my sister and I!

My wife, 10 year old son and I did the parasailing at Chute 'Em Up when were in Port Aransas last week and had a great time. The staff were friendly,professional and knowledgeable. They were able to accommodate all three of us on the same ride which was a nice plus for a family of three. It was a lot of fun to feel the parachute pick us up off the back of the boat and then as we were being reeled back into the boat we were dipped into the water (as we requested- you can stay dry if you want). A good time and a nice break from the beach and the pool. Tip- go in the morning to avoid baking in the sun in the afternoon during the hotter months.

Wow! Amazing! Fantastic! One of the best things I have ever experienced! At 71 years old I was a bit intimidated however I took two of my grandkids with me and we had a blast. Every staff member was friendly, professional and courteous. The driver and assistant really made the trip fun with all the information they gave us and stories they told. We even saw dolphin on the trip. Thank you Chute ‘‘em Up Parasaling for the great trip.

I have been parasailing since I was in middle school (am now 47) and return to Chute Em Up every year with my kids for the past 4 years. They are very safe, informative and FUN!
The "crew" this year was especially professional and mature. For the first time in a long time I want to go back to Port A THIS summer so I can fly with these guys again. They were wonderful.
Full boat and made everyone feel comfortable and safe and made sure we all had a good time.
I am so glad you opened back up after Harvey!

Parasailing was a great experience. I am a generally risk-averse person, and I felt very safe during the entire trip. The staff was very flexible and worked well with the three subgroups that were together for the experience, making sure that everyone had a good experience. We had a minor glitch with the photography, but the company made it right when we let them know.

Chute ‘Em Up, thank you again for always making parasailing a wonderful adventure. You all are the best and you make things easy and safe. With 6 kids flying this time, 3 of them being first timers I thought there might be a hitch, not a chance with you guys. We will see you next time we are in Port A. Thanks for the memories.
