Husband and wife 60 plus had the time of our life parasailing behind the well operated boat. The two young guys operating the boat were brilliant, great attitude with good sense of humour. Chose not to get wet and dry we stayed. A wonderful experience.

Hi Larry, Yes that is our maximum weight but if the conditions are perfect no problems to fly you together. If not then we would just fly you separately which is just as awesome.
