Traverse Bay Parasailing All Activities


Reach another goal on your bucket list this summer with Traverse Bay Parasail!

We can fly singles, doubles, or triples! You’ll enjoy a gentle, dry takeoff and landing right off the back platform of the parasail boat. You can fly dry if you like, but we usually give you a pleasant, refreshing dip in the Bay – just enough to cool you off on a warm day! The entire boat ride lasts about 60 minutes and each parasail flight is 10-12 minutes of bliss!

All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. If you can sit, you can fly! Be sure you ask our crew about the professional photography service on-board so you can walk away with great pictures to look back on for years to come! We are able to accommodate non-flying passengers (riders) for a nominal charge at the time of the flight on a stand-by basis only.

It is easily one of the best boat rides in Traverse City for the price. Many of our parasail customers tell us the boat ride alone is worth the price they pay to fly. We are happy to accommodate people of limited mobility or physically challenged when the conditions are suitable. Large groups and private parties are always welcome, but keep in mind that it may take more advanced notice to ensure that we can best accommodate the time and space your group requires.

Give us a call for additional details!
