Unlike their forebears, modern sailors no longer believe that the sea runs over the world's edge or that krakens can successfully operate hand-throttled jet skis. Sneer at sea monsters' lack of extreme skills with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a one-hour jet ski rental from Dennis and Provincetown Parasail and Jet Ski, valid at the East Dennis location at Sesuit Harbor (a $115 value).
Dennis and Provincetown Parasail and Jet Ski sets adrenaline junkies on wave-hopping expeditions with a fleet of new 2011 water vehicles. During a one-hour jet ski rental, aqua warriors skirt across the playground of Cape Cod's protected waters, where the gleaming ocean waves equalize to form a calm foundation for building speed, taking hairpin turns, and generating engine-churned gumbo. Each three-person nautical vessel carts up to 350 pounds of human over the salty scenery, boosting speeds with a 110-horsepower smooth-running four-stroke engine.
Dennis Parasail and Jet Ski
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 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.
