My family of four (myself, husband, and two 10 yr old girls) went parasailing with these folks last week. We were able to go up two at a time. We ended up going in the bay since it was a windy day and the ocean was pretty choppy, they mentioned that some folks in earlier runs in the ocean were getting seasick. We sailed in the bay and had no problems with motion sickness at all, the boat ride was fun and the parasailing was expertly performed!! The (free and optional) dip of your feet in the water was very fun, I would recommend this even though dipping your "feet" can go up to your back so I'd advise wearing a swimming suit! For $23 we opted to purchase an SD card of photos, and the mate on the boat took approx 100 pictures (plus a few canned photos of boardwalk shots from the air), this is a great souvenier since you can't take a camera up with you. We went in the evening, and ended up with a private boat since the other party canceled at the last minute. I highly recommend this activitiy!

Captain Joel runs IT WELL! In fact, he is easily THE BEST PARASAIL CAPTAIN in all of New Jersey.
Safe, Fun, Excellent Value, memories of a lifetime :-)
We will definitely come back. Thanks again to all at OCEAN CITY PARASAIL.

We booked a parasailing outing for our large party, including young kids, pre-teens, and adults in their 30's, 40's, and 60's. We were looking for an activity to do that would entertain all of us as a highlight of our trip. We had 8 parasailers and 2 kids who wanted to observe. The cost per person is $70 to parasail and $20 to ride the boat but not parasail. We chose the early flight to pay $10 less per person given the significant cost. Their booth is right in Ocean City. When we booked we were told that we could not have more than 1 observer per boat if there were paying parasailers but with my request we were allowed to bring 2 paid observers. The ride was an 1 1/2 hour total. Parasailers went up in pairs and were up for about 10 minutes each. On the website it said you could ride solo, double, or triple but we were never asked preferences (we were planning on pairs anyway). We were also told we could get dipped to our toes or a larger half-body dip. We found that you were dipped however they or the boat passengers felt you should be but it was still fun! I highly suggest the full dip-a blast! You are kind of dragged across the water, in and out. While some of our party was nervous, everyone loved it and had no fears. If you can sit, you can parasail. The ride up and down is smooth. It is quiet in the air and beautiful. You go up 500 feet, and can see Atlantic City skyline, the OC Boardwalk, and the town of OC. The boat ride out from the dock to the place where you parasail is fast and bumpy over the waves and they played loud music. Fun but lead to motion sickness...On the day we went out, three of us got seasick due to the ride-I'd only want to go on a fair weather day as a result (barf bags are on board!). Dont not go because of that-1 throws up in all motion activities and desoite throwing up, I'd still do it! We bought the photo package-despite a poor review about it-because our boat was filled all with family and friends and for the $23 we could get a memory card and photos of all of us on the boat. They use a Cannon SLR with a large lens to take the photos. We were told that we'd get 20 preloaded photos of the boardwalk but did not. We did get 160 photos of our party, way more than we expected and many of the photos were very good. Definetly worth the money in our scenario...Overall, great activity and worth the money for the experience! All of us loved it!
