Parasailing over Lake Erie is an exciting experience rivaled only by the island’s Helicopter Rides and Biplane rides!

Put-in-Bay Parasailing Information
The parasailing company was motivated by a trip to Florida. The original owner of Put-in-Bay Parasail brought this activity to the island, much to the delight of both visitors and tourists. Parasailing lifts the lucky participants into the air via a rainbow-colored parasail. The well-trained staff led by Captain Jason Hill is exceptionally knowledgeable. They ensure every guest learns about safety and proper technique. Joe and Kennedy will assist you with the parasailing best practices.
You can choose from either high or low parasailing. The standard towline is 600,’ but they can give you up to 800’ if you ask to feel like you’re flying. Each light lasts about 10 minutes. Are you looking to get wet? Asked to be dunked into Lake Erie, It’s enjoyable! Or you can stay dry. Each line can carry up to 400 lbs. If the weather is good, you can opt to fly in tandem with someone else.
Put-in-Bay Parasail offers lots of deals and affordable packages. Each flight includes 30 action photos of your trip. The best package consists of a DVD and a T-Shirt. A flight is $90, and each lasts about 10 minutes. Everyone gets an “I Got High” sticker.
Groups are more than welcome to try out this activity together. It is a bonding activity. Reservations are taken on a first-come-first-served basis. Don’t wait to come parasailing since flights can be delayed if it’s raining.
Riders are lifted directly off the back platform of the vessel in a seated position until airborne. You will also land back on the platform on your feet at the end of the flight.
