We had a great time. This was our 1st parasailing adventure. The crew was very fun. We were out on the 4pm boat with on other family so it was the perfect number of people. We took our kids (10 and 12) they loved it. It was their favorite part of the trip.

I had an injury and couldn't participate but my friends had a blast parasailing. I think this was the only place that didn't hold a billion dollars on your credit card when you rent their equipment. Will definitely come back when I'm able to partake in the fun.

Wasn't sure what to expect but had a great time. The boat ride was nice and taking off and landing went smoothly. Once you are up in the air it's more quiet and slow moving than I imagined it would be. Loved our captain. He was very attentive about our safety.

If parasailing is on your bucket list, contact these folks. They operate out of the beautiful East Grand Traverse Bay. They're friendly, professional, timely and fun! The boat ride itself was a fantastic experience, and they handle the whole parasail flight professionally. They ensured that each person had fun and felt comfortable. I'd love to come back and do it... More

You have to use this parasailing service when in TC. Great desk staff and boat captain. I recommend buying the photo package. They got great shots of our kids in the air, as well as pictures of my husband and myself on the boat.

Parasailing and Kayaking was it for us today. We had a great time and would totally do this again. The crew from the front desk to the ones on the boat made everything very fun and easy.

My 70-something dad took my teen parasailing for her birthday & they had a fabulous time! The views were amazing & they said it felt completely safe. It was even fun watching them from the dock :) Staff were all very friendly & helpful and if you want, they’ll bring you down low to dip your toes in the water.... More
