See Hatteras Village, Pamlico Sound and the Atlantic Ocean from high in the sky


The parasail ride takes place on the Pamlico Sound side of Hatteras Village and is dependent on the weather and wind conditions.
When parasailing, the riders are put in a life vest and a harness that is attached to the parachute. Riders are then instructed to take a seated position on the platform.

As the boat increases speed, the parachute slowly takes flight. When you are free of the platform, you no longer need to hold on to the harness. The parasail ride lasts for 10-12 minutes.

The riders can choose to get a dip in the water – get wet from your toes up to your waist – then go back up in the air.  It is fun and we encourage you to try, but you can choose to stay dry if you prefer. While up in the chute, it is amazingly quiet and peaceful.

Upon completion of the ride, parasailers return to the boat and land back on the platform standing where the mate is waiting to unclip you from the parachute.

We can take singles, doubles and triples in the parachute for rides.   Allowing doubles and triples is at the discretion of the captain of the boat.  Safety is the first priority. We also are able to take the physically challenged. This is an unforgettable experience you will want to share with family and friends back home.
