I've always been terrified of heights since I was a young girl, so when my friend pointed out that she wanted to go parasailing, I was fairly skeptical. After she convinced me, we went downtown, easily found the booth, and were enthusiastically greeted by our captains, Wade and Kevin, and one of the girls in the booth. We signed the waivers and were led down to the boat along with our mates that would be joining. We got settled on the boat and Kevin clearly explained what we had to do and all the safety precautions. We then set out into the bay which in itself was a nice and relaxing ride. When it was my and my friends turn to go up, Kevin geared us up and we were slowly lifted off the boat. I thought I would be scared, but I wasn't at all! It was much different being in a parasail than being on the edge of a building. The view was simply spectacular. This experience was amazing and I would recommend this to anybody looking for some adventure this summer. The staff was exceptional. I can't wait to do it again this summer!

This was my first trip to Newport and definitely not my last. We are looking forward to spending more time in this town next fall. I decided to take the wife up the coast for a nice Memorial Day weekend getaway and being from the Annapolis area we decided that Newport, Rhode island sounded like a good weekend getaway.


We stumbled upon "island style" parasail while walking around the harbor at bowens ferry landing. We are avid sailers but new to the adventure sport of parasailing we decided to inquire. The girls at the counter were friendly and it was easy to sign up.

Captain Wade and his handy assistant picked a group of us up for our tour and were very knowledgable. Not only with the activity they provided, but they also gave great advice on local restaurants and spots to check out while we were in the area.

Parasailing was Surreal! Much smoother than we expected, we took off and landed on the boat and only got wet because we asked for a dip in the water for the photos.all in all it was a wonderful experience.

If you have an hour to kill and are around the Newport area I would highly recommend spending it at Island Style Parasail. Any extra time and the guys will direct you where to go. Thanks again we had a blast!!

A couple of things about my son, Wade, who is Island Style Parasail: We've sailed from Nova Scotia to the Caribbean. He knows the oceans and its winds. So be at ease and enjoy the ride! Meb, Wade's stepmom says: I love the silence and the peace and the fabulous view!
