Captain Mike, a Coast Guard–licensed boater, takes singles, pairs, and groups of three onto the water in a boat built in 2011 and checked daily for safety. Parasailers prep for their ascent by strapping into equipment garnered from the world's leading parasail equipment manufacturers. A multicolored parachute then pulls them soaring into the blue firmament for a thrilling ride and views typically only seen while inside a paper airplane.

The six different parasailing experiences cater to varying tastes, with the Wet 'n' Wild option guaranteeing a dunk in the water and the Elevator Gone Mad flight promising patrons a quick shot into the air before falling gently back to earth. For another means of taking in the sights, the crew sets up beach-goers with safe, speedy jet skis that can hold up to three passengers.

Dennis Parasail and Jet Ski sends its clientele as high as 1,200 feet above Cape Cod Bay in colorful parasails, making it the highest parasail ride offered in New England. Towed along by speedboat, solo fliers and couples choose their preferred height and ride style. The Wet 'n' Wild flight dunks riders into the water repeatedly. During the Elevator Gone Mad flight, the chute quickly rises and drops like a bird taking flight before remembering it's a penguin. The shop also cares for a stable of 17 Yamaha VX 1100 jet skis, whose four-stroke engines allow them to cut through calm bay waterways at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.

Marathons are great for testing endurance, but when competitors want to see how they measure up in strength and agility, they sign up for one of Civilian Military Combine's events. Long-distance runners may scoff at the 5- to 7-mile course—until they see the obstacles that break up that course. For example, runners might have to carry logs up a hill, crawl under barbed wire, navigate water crossings, and climb over cargo nets. And that's only if they survive The Pit, a pre-race testing ground where each contestant must endure 7-minute bouts of push presses, kettlebell swings, and box jumps with burpees. The brainchild of coaches from the United States Armed Forces, CrossFit, and USA Triathlon, CMC's events are sure to be prime physical challenges.

With its storybook coves, rushing rivers, and waterfalls, it might be easy to confuse Captain’s Cove Adventure Golf for some sort of exotic resort. The capsized ship near one of the holes, however, may break that illusion quickly. The adventure-themed mini-golf course surrounds visitors with nautical artifacts, including lighthouses and a maritime lookout platform fashioned like the ones found in old ship masts or Jimmy Buffet’s living room. On hot summer days, the abundance of trees provides golfers with plenty of shade as they traverse the well-kept 18 holes.

The Friends of the Seabrook Trail have a single goal: to create a safe space for the children and residents of Seabrook and beyond. Increased traffic throughout the town has caused many to worry for the safety of young ones and pedestrians alike, inspiring the volunteer organization to take action. Through fundraisers, partnerships, and the annual Road Race, they hope to transform a section of unused train railway into a 2.5-mile nonmotorized trail and make it a part of the 17-mile East coast trail. The trail would connect eight coastal cities, while also giving residents space to safely walk and run, and play the world's longest game of hopscotch.

Winemaking began as a hobby for Sweet Baby Vineyard founder Lewis Eaton. In the summer, he and his family found themselves traveling to local farms to pick fresh strawberries, blueberries, peaches, and apples, which later made it into Lewis’s wines. Those creations later became the foundation for Sweet Baby Vineyard's now-expansive wine varieties. Today, the winery grows four grape varietals and the tasting room welcomes visitors for complimentary tastings of many of Sweet Baby’s creations, such as bartlett pear wine, the eternally embarrassed blush, and dry red.
