What Should I Expect?
1 – Loading
Parasailing charters start at 10 am and run every hour, on the hour, until dusk. Our professional crew will get you on-board the vessel and walk you through a pre-trip safety briefing before we depart.
2 – Prep Work
When it is your turn to fly our deckhand will fit you with a life jacket and parasail harness (if you are flying tandem or triple your partners with be fitted with their own equipment). The parachute is inflated and flies just above the boats flight deck. You will then be instructed to make your way up onto the flight deck under the parachute where you are safely secured for your parasail ride.
3 – Sit Back and Relax
Sit into your harness and enjoy the ride as the captain gently unwinds the rope, slowly lifting you into the Okanagan Sky. Get a bird’s eye view of Penticton as you reach heights of up to 100 meters, and gaze down at the beautiful Skaha Lake beaches and surrounds.
4 – Dip or No Dip?
Penticton Parasail captains love to give guests a dip in the water, so don’t forget to tell the captain if you wish to stay dry. Landing is a breeze, our winch boat gradually winds you in to the boat for a soft touchdown where you are greeted by the deckhand who will guide you down and assist you back to your seat. Parasailing is fun for the whole family and requires no experience and no ability, if you can sit you can fly.
