Myrtle Beach water sports guide
- Myrtle Beach parasailing is the popular tourist 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. Locations and more info.
