My boyfriend and I wanted to try this as a first date when we first started dating but due to weather it got cancelled. Fast forward 10 months later and we happened to be camping in the area and decided last minute to book the experience! My boyfriend was terrified, I was a bit nervous but trusted the crew to keep us all alive LOL. We had so much fun! I love boats so having a nice boat ride as well as flying up in the air (like really high up) it was a wonderful experience! The crew were amazing and being up so high in the air with my love was unreal. It was so peaceful, I could have stayed up there forever! My boyfriend got over his fear and had an amazing time as well. Thank you for such a great end to our camping trip!

We had an amazing experience parasailing in Grand Bend. My husband and two daughters went together and the Captain and first mate seemed very knowledgeable and experienced.

Life jackets and all hands were sanitized and single use disposable masks were given to us to wear on the boat (taken off during the actual parasail flight) as we were with two other groups of people.

We enjoyed the boat ride and music while the others were in flight and had a wonderful time!

The experience itself was amazing!!! We booked our trip at 11am but due to windy weather it was rescheduled few times through out the day. The staff were great at communicating with us and we finally got to fly at 5pm.
My son was very nervous but captain Carlos and Matt were super helpful!! Matt made feel much better about it and he actually had a blast.
It was absolutely the highlight of our trip.

Horrible management and customer service!
We planned 2 weeks in advance and booked for July 17th 2021, they emailed us stating one of their boat is out of service and same time another email from them stating cancelled due bad weather. They called and rescheduled us to Aug 01/2021 12PM. Today (July 29/2021) another person called and said they can't accommodate us because they have a large group booked (after our booking, I wonder why would they even book when their calendar is already booked) and offered to book us same day at 7PM or the following day (which is not Quebec stat holiday) and third choice was to refund (they just don't care). No RESPECT for customer, Be ready for Incompetent service
Should I visit them in future? - NO CHANCE. Seriously inefficient and incompetent business structure

We booked an hour session. We were a total of 8 people on the boat. Shaun was our “captain”. Total cost $640. We were couples so went in pairs…so total cost was $160 per couple.

This is perhaps the worst way to spend your money. The parasailing lasted for 10 minutes per couple…yes, $160 for 10 mins of parasailing. Shaun was very unprofessional. To begin, he made everyone wait 25 minutes. Once the tour started Shaun started playing some vulgar songs on the loudest possible sound level…totally inconsiderate of people on the boat.

The worst part is yet to come, total parasailing only lasted 45 minutes whereas we paid for the full hour. After bringing this to attention at the main office, the girl explanation was the during high season, we don’t guarantee the full hour. Wtf.

These guys are crooked liars who just wants to rip off tourists. Spend your money somewhere else where you can support genuine local businesses.

Booked 3 days ahead to ensure we have a good time as a family. We were asked to arrive 45 min ahead, which we did and then they tell us that they have a lot of bookings and may not be able to accommodate my husband who we had booked as an observer. We showed up on time as requested but were asked to wait for the next time slot. They have only 2 boats and over fill their bookings. Although we booked in advance they did not give us any preference but allowed others who had just made their booking on board. They take about 8-9 people on this boat where it is impossible to physically distance yourself. They do not provide masks. The girls at the counter were nice and sympathetic and provided us a refund right away.

Just as we were getting to the beach, we got a call from them telling us that our parasail has been cancelled do to maintenance. We were extremely upset as we had drove to Grand Bend by driving for 2.5 hours just to do some parasailing at 11am. We were notified in the morning which was very inconvenient as we had planned to head to Grand Bend for a while...if we had known a few days ago we could've planned another destination. We got a refund but I feel due to this inconvenience a refund is not enough.

The actual experience was amazing, but way too short. I think we were up for maybe 10-12 min max! They had 12 people on the boat including the 2 crew members, so it was impossible to social distance. The fact that so many other people were going to be on the boat, as well how short the actual experience was going to be, was never explained at all. So my daughter and myself we paid $180 for 10 min of experience. We wouldn't go through it again

I thank you for your review. The flights are 10-12 minutes actually, yet on the boat for up to 45min-1hr to return to the pier. I can assure you that we do offer more time than most companies, as we work down south as well and are average 5-8min max. that's why we decided to double the time here. I am sorry you felt it wasn't enough time but do thank you for your review.

I would give it a 2-star experience (out of 5).

My family had this experience on July 16th, 2022. The core activity of parasailing was fun, around 8-10 minutes.

Overall experience was NOT great as the parking was a big mess. While my family could take the ride, I did not find the parking place for an hour, so I could not do the ride even though I paid for this.

I paid for a Go pro rental, but my family was not given a go pro camera & I was not even refunded for the same.

My daughter and I went last weekend and absolutely loved it, such a great experience. The hardest part was the boat ride, lol as it was very windy the day we went out and the water was wavy so the boat ride was all up and down and bumps and we were soaking wet, but after the initial start it was fun as well.
Once you are up it is so peaceful and quiet and the view is spectacular. Definitely recommend doing this!
