A Sky High Family Adventure


Atlantic City offers a boat-load of the usual water adventure sports such as kayaking, surfing and waterskiing. But have you ever experienced the thrill of parasailing? Imagine an exhilarating, yet peaceful, ride in the air – with an unobstructed sky-high view of Atlantic City, NJ’s bustling beaches, coastline resort casinos, and possibly even a pod of dolphins or school of stingrays.

Think of skydiving without the jumping out of the plane or the hurtling toward earth parts. “Your launch and landing will be smooth and gentle from a carpeted platform on the back of a boat,” assures Captain Eric Redner, a former Navy SARs (Search and Rescue swimmer) who owns and operates Atlantic City Parasail – the only outfitter for parasailing in Atlantic City, NJ.

Founded in 2010, the soaring business holds all the licenses and certifications required by law, and their vessel is a top-of-the-line custom parasailing boat that’s US Coast Guard-certified.

Concerned about safety? According to the Parasail Safety Council, “parasailing is one of the safer outdoor thrill sports around.” And only two states actually regulate parasailing. Don’t worry. New Jersey is one of them.

Are there age or weight restrictions? Participants must be at least six years old; and riders must weigh more than 100 pounds but not exceed 450 pounds – to fly solo, if desired.

How long is the parasailing adventure? The boat ride can last 90 minutes; the actual parasailing experience runs 12-15 minutes when flying tandem.
