Outdoors at the Shore: Parasailing

On any given day at the beach, you can see boats sailing along the coastline carrying a few of their passengers via parachute. Parasailing has been around since the 1960s and has become a popular summertime recreational activity amongst thrill-seekers of all ages. Once the rider is securely harnessed, the ride begins! The parasailer will glide above the ocean at a few hundred feet with a colorful parachute attached to the back. The experience will give anyone who is brave enough a new perspective of the coast.

There are single, double or triple passenger flights offered at different locations. Many boats offer parasailers the option to stay dry in the air or skim the ocean during their ride. Sail on over to DoTheShore.com/activities to find a marina that offers parasailing, and view the Jersey Shore from a whole new angle!
