Frequently Asked Questions: Shoreline Parasailing
Is Parasailing scary?
No, absolutely not. Parasailing is very serene and peaceful. You’ll take off and land slowly, so you don’t have to worry about a scary experience. And when you’re the air, all you’ll be thinking about is the spectacular scenery.
Is Parasailing Safe?
Yes – as long as it’s done in the right conditions, parasailing is very safe. We take every precaution possible to ensure your safety, including inspecting the tow line, winch system, harnesses and flying equipment daily. We never fly if it’s too windy or in rough sea conditions. If Mother Nature is not cooperating, we don’t hesitate to reschedule or refund your flight. We follow these procedures because your SAFETY is our number one priority.
Would you recommend making a reservation?
Yes! Because of limited seating and our growing popularity, we highly recommend making an online reservation before you arrive. We always encourage people to book early because weather is sometimes a factor and you wouldn’t want to miss out.
Where do we fly?
The boat cruises the in bay of the Harrison Lake. You will never not be able to see the beach located in Harrison Hot Springs.
How long is the boat ride?
Do I have to get wet?
Absolutely not! The way we fly is very controlled. You take off slowly and smoothly right from the back deck of the boat. If you opt for a dip, there is a fun part toward the end of the flight. The Captain can dip your feet in the water if the conditions are ideal. You then land gently back on the deck of the boat.
Who can fly?
4 years old and up can fly. Any age can ride on the boat. As long as you can properly fit in our approved life jackets and our inspected harness, you can fly. Remember, small children need to fly with a sibling or a parent.
How can I pay?
We accept cash, debit cards, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. All USD will be accepted at par to CAD.
Am I guaranteed to fly with my friend or partner as a tandem or triple?
Usually, but each flight is dependent on weight load and wind/weather conditions. We’ll do our best to ensure you fly with your friends and family, but it’s ultimately at the Captain’s discretion how, when and where it’s safe for everyone to fly.
How long am I in the air?
6mins – 8mins
Can anyone go on the boat to watch as an observer?
We can mark you down as an observer when you book, and there is a fee.
What should I wear?
We recommend wearing shorts and a t-shirt over bathing clothes, and flip flops or sandals for your feet. In cooler conditions, it’s recommended to wear a long-sleeve shirt, hoodie or jacket, and even in summer an extra layer is nice to have, especially after a dip! Don’t forget sunscreen!
What should I bring?
Sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and a small towel are recommended. For hot days, drinking water is also nice to have since the boat ride is about 30mins.
What if the weather is bad?
If the Captain wouldn’t fly his own mother, he won’t fly you either, as safety is our number one concern! If there is inclement weather anywhere nearby, we’ll bring you back to land. Based on our weather radar, we may either go on stand-by or close down completely, the same applies for high winds. If you book and were not able to fly with us, you may choose to be refunded or rescheduled. We don’t push the limits. Again, your safety is always our number one priority.
Can I buy pictures of my flight?
Yes, you can. We offer photo and video packages. We supply the camera and you get to take away the SD Card with your photos and video.
Can I bring my own camera?

We are open 7 days a week, weather permitting, from June 1, 2018 – September 3, 2018. First trip out is at 10:00am, and our last boat usually goes out at 6pm, though we have been known to run later hours, especially mid-summer due to high demand.

The vessel is Transport Canada approved and certified, this includes the vessels hull, engine and safety gear.
