Our experienced U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain and crew of Ocracoke Island’s only parasail company offer the best views of the island from over 500 feet in the air. The parasail times run from nine am until six pm on the hour every hour. The boat can hold up to six passengers for every boat trip. Riders ride along for $20 a person and that is only on a stand by basis.
WHAT IS PARASAILING?
You will be flying high above Ocracoke Island and the Atlantic Ocean in a specially designed parachute which is towed behind a high tech speed boat. Our custom built winchboats are "state of the art", utilizing a hydraulic launch and recovery system. This provides for easy take-off and landings directly from the flight deck of the boat. Each ride is under control for an effortless ocean thrill ride. You don't even have to get wet, but where is the fun in that?
We have two USCG certified 6 passenger parasail boats. These boats are designed specifically for parasailing. Whether you are all by yourself or a large group we are more than happy to take you to new heights.
[parasail] We offer tandem (two people flying together) and single harness rides. We fly 400' of rope, which puts you approximately 250'-300’ high off the water and 800’ of rope, which puts you approximately 500’-600’ high off the water. Each ride lasts about 15 minutes. The entire trip lasts about an hour dock to dock. You will enjoy the boat ride and beautiful scenery while everyone takes their turn flying.
Ocracoke Parasail is located at the Jolly Roger Restaurant & Marina, which is located on Highway 12 across from the Silver Lake Inn. We have our reservation booth next to the restaurant and marina. There is free parking and deckspace on the dock for those of you that are not parasailing, to just hangout and enjoy the marina life. The restaurant and bar are open for lunch and drinks.
