Here are a few detailed, positive experiences about Island Head Watersports activities:

“Great crew that made it fun for all. Bad weather even popped up and the Captain avoided it by instead showing us a few highlights, including a sighting of a manta ray. Highly recommend.”

 “My mom and I loved our parasail experience. The guys who took us out were awesome, we felt safe, and we felt prepared to go up. I liked the fun music while we were on the boat. I would suggest this to anyone who likes some excitement and adventure.”



“Went parasailing for the first time and loved it. We had such a great time. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Made the experience so awesome. Will definitely do it again next time we are on the island.”

“Amazing experience. We will be back for more. My 16 and 12-year-old wanted to do this. Of course, they talked momma into it. We all went up at the same time. I would have regretted if I didn’t have this experience with them. I loved it.”


The Benefits of Seeing Hilton Head Island from Sky High

Hilton Head Island is, no doubt, a gorgeous place to vacay, regardless of how you view it. But there’s something magical and amazing about seeing the island from a bird’s eye perspective.

What does a parasail trip INVOLVE?

Parasailers get to see beautiful views of the Harbour Town Lighthouse, South Beach Marina, the Lowcountry Marshlands, Daufuskie Island, and Calibogue Sound. These are places that would otherwise be inaccessible without separately booked trips, by boat, to their locations. It’s also not unusual to see sea creatures, like dolphins, sea turtles, and small sharks.


Depending on the size of the parasailing group, each high-flying experience lasts for up to 10 minutes. Guests can opt for solo, tandem, or triple flights, with a custom photo package that captures your experience with over 25 photos on a shareable SD card.
