Myrtle Beach parasailing is the popular tourist water sport activity. The boat is pulling you behind in a parachute so you go up in the air few hundred feet above the ocean.
When you going parasailing ask if a captain is USCG licensed and approved so you don't have to worry about your safety.
After you go up you will stay for about 10-15 minutes in the air and then will be reeled back to the boat, there are single, double or triple rides.
The staff most likely will be taking your high quality digital pictures, which you can purchase from them. No training required for parasailing so go up to enjoy scenic views and maybe you even going to get lucky to see dolphins and turtles swimming in a water. The price is about $55 per person.
To go parasailing from Murrells Inlet or Calabash it is a little bit cheaper, then to go from the beach, the reason is because you have to get from marina to the ocean on the boat. There will be more people with you and you have to wait for their turn also, so for you to decide if you want to wait in a boat or pay few extra dollars and go from the beach. Don't forget to wear life jackets!
