At 232 Bay Avenue, this attraction travels around the end of the island to reach the ocean side of the island, where you "fly". Tide surge around the end of the island can be rough. We were the only family on the boat & asked the captain to take it easy, because the 6 year old had just eaten, was at obvious discomfort, and we did not want her to get sea sick. The captain did not slow the boat, he ignored the two requests. New Jersey boating laws require life vests for children under age 12 but I had to be firmly assertive before the mate provided vests for the 4 year old and 16 year old non-swimmer. We cannot recommend this attraction because of the attitude of staff on the boat.

It was so awesome experience of parasailing. Me and my husband went for tandem parasail, we had done parasailing before in Thailand hence were aware of the experience but Ocean city parasail washed out previous experience with ultimate enjoyable fun ride of 12-15 mins for both of us, sitting next to each other...! Staff was good, their boat and parasail both seemed quite new. Also we had taken photo bundle for some extra bucks, in which their staff will capture your photos from the boat which is worth if there is no one down on boat for capturing your pictures. All in all best experience!!!

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.
