Your entire family will enjoy this relaxing flight and the breathtaking panoramic views of Corolla, Duck, the Currituck Sound and the Atlantic Ocean! Begin your adventure sitting down on the back deck of the boat and let your Captain and First Mate do the rest, as you fly comfortably over the beautiful Outer Banks. Fly high above the iconic Currituck Lighthouse and Whale Head Club in Corolla or cruise above the beautiful historic town of Duck. Your flight ends right where it began, as you sit down slowly and softly on the back deck of the boat. Fly solo or fly with a friend or two, as we offer single, double and triple flights. Our 12 passenger boats are top of the line Ocean Pros (the best on the market and in the parasail industry) and we fly on the hour.

A great option to ensure the (dry!) safety of your personal equipment while still capturing the entire experience is to purchase one of our professional photo packages! The crew will take at least 50 shots of your experience from leaving the back of the boat, up through the air and your return. Using the most up-to-date professional camera and lens, you are guaranteed an incredible way to remember your trip! The packages also include the entire SD card to take home with you. Our captain will go over this with you while on the boat, but feel free to contact with any other questions!
Here are some examples from a family picture package:
Making a reservation is strongly suggested during our season, as we fly full boats on the hour, every hour. Reservations early in the week are urged because we are a weather dependent business. Give us a call today to ensure your family books an ideal time for everyone!

After going parasailing several years ago, I cannot imagine going to the Outer Banks without going back to Corolla Parasailing. My family and I went parasailing and it is an amazing adventure. I am terrified of heights but once we were up, it was an amazing and peaceful experience and I felt no fear. My family will be back there in June and plan to go again!
The captain and first mate are extremely professional and provide a safe exciting experience like no other.. Don't miss it!

My first time up and it won't be my last! Great fun, highly recommend the ride. You're in the sky for a nice ride, flying over the bay - it's smooth and relaxing. You get all of your instructions from your captain (Alex) and you don't have to worry about a thing once you're in the air and coming back down. Nervous? You shouldn't be! You won't regret it!

We went with a group of 7. The tour started on time and was a blast. Alex drove the boat, he was quiet with a few comments. Colan kept us entertained as he took pictures and set up the next parasailer. The service was fun and efficient. I would recommend this service.

Down with friends and made a reservation for the next day. They were very accommodating and polite when we arrived. The shuttle boat Captain out to the parasail boat was fun and knowledgeable. The Captain and Mate for the parasail boat were fun and energetic, and they also tried to put tensions at ease.

Awesome fun! We had a group of eight first-timers ranging from six years old to forty-four years old. The captain and his helper were great. We all felt safe and the experience was a blast! Can't recommend any higher. A++

This was our 2nd time at OBX and 2nd time to Corolla Parasail. I went with my 2 daughters and 1 granddaughter. The staff was friendly and informative from the person who we paid to the staff on the pier, the boat driver who shuttled us to the parasail boat and of course the captain and 1st mate.
