Great time!

Took the grandkids and the wife out for their first time up in the air! Staff was friendly and helpful. It was a windy day, and we got some good height!

Not the best choice for 2 teenage boys. They were looking something a little more active. Once they get you up in the air, you just sit there for 10 minutes. Whole trip took one hour because they taxi you out from Saco to their main boat by the OOB pier. That boat barely goes anywhere and then they taxi... More

This is different from the one where you run a bit before take off and the landing can be a bit tricky. It's way smoother and enjoyable than that. Both of the guys are friendly and welcoming. We waited for a yellow boat to pick us up along with four other people. After getting a bit away from the shore... More

The folks at OOB Parasail were thorough, patient, gentle, supportive - nice folk. The take off and landing were gentle and they took us right past our friends on the beach. The sense of quiet flight was amazing, THANKS!

2 twin 10 year old girls and an obese father go parasailing....sounds like the start of a joke. The staff was really good with us. And I am glad all three of us were able to go up together. They are not kidding that anyone can do it as long as you don't get sea sick easily!

Starting from the staff they were very nice and friendly people!!! And thanks to the weather we even could touch the ocean for several times! So the experience is definitely wonderful (looking around, admiring OOB and the coastal area and the void...) Usually when I used to admire those parasailers I thought that it might be quite adventurous or even... More

There really aren't words to describe how magical this experience was.. I've never considered parasailing until the opportunity fell into my lap, and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves a good view and a nice breeze in their hair! The crew added to the fun - and they did an excellent job making sure everyone was safe... More

My family of 6 decided to try the parasailing on our recent visit. It was a cloudy, raw day and the water was choppy but as it was our last day of vacation we decided to brave it anyway. The boat driver and his assistant were great guys, very knowledgable and safe. The actual parasailing was a great experience. Everyone... More

My sister and I went up for the premium flight 600 ft above the water and it was absolutely breath taking. The view from up above is like none other and it's like sitting in a sea of silence; tranquil and calming.
