“MUST. DO. AGAIN!!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

For some reason, I chose Island Water Charters over Catalina Parasailing, but Im glad I did. We had an A-MAZING first time experience. The ride was great. The boat attendees were knowledgeable & fun! The take off & landing were SOOO SMOOTH!!! & you dont have to wear a swim suit or get wet if you dont want to. 600ft up was so easy! Loved every minute of it!!!
The check in process was a little strange (small building/ operation), but the office/dock attendees were nice.
The whole thing made for the most exhilarating experience yet! We did the 600ft, but next time - oh yes, there will be a next time - we'll go higher. & Unless you have an awesome camera w/ a zoom, I'd pay for their pics. I didnt think time (thinking, oh we'll just use my cell). We got pics, but i think they would have come out better if the guys on the boat took them.

“Breathtaking & Relaxing”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This was one of the best experiences we had on the island. Perfect if you enjoy zip lining and hot air balloons. It was amazing how quiet it was. The boat captain did his best to give everyone the experience they wanted - dry, toe dips, or completely soaked. Would do it again!

“Great ride Parasailing, a must do!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We took advantage of the free ride for the B-day person with a paid fare. We went up 600 feet and it was a blast. I paid $65 plus an additional $20 for a whole lot of photos. I think we may have been up in the air for 10 minutes and it was a beautiful day and we could see everything

a beautiful day Monday to spend above the noise in mid air with my baby girl who is turning 24 this week. We really enjoyed the views, the boat ride and especially the crew on the boat. Allot of fun was had.

“Up Up and Away!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Parasailing at Catalina Island is a must! The crew of Island Water Charters was professional, safety focused, and overall nice. You will definitely have an awesome experience and make sure you order the picture package.
