What You'll Get
Packing a parachute is not unlike packing a lunch: it’s a bummer when your mom puts old ham in either one. Enjoy a food-free flight with today’s Groupon to Parasail Catalina, valid at the Avalon or Balboa location. Choose between the following options:
- For $69, you get a parasail ride for two people (up to a $150 value).
- For $99, you get a parasail ride for three people (up to a $225 value).<p>
Parasail Catalina’s trusty sky gliders lift patrons into the air for a floating adventure 900 feet to 1,200 feet above scenic Catalina Island or Newport Beach. Duos and trios strap into tandem and triple parachutes on the boat’s flight deck, staying dry as they ascend to heights previously reserved for clouds and apprentice satellites. Effortlessly sitting back and enjoying the view, guests soar above the landscape for up to 14 minutes, enjoying the serene thrill of glissading on the empyrean byways high above the busy world below. Panoramic views abound as parasailors make their way back to the boat’s deck, concluding a trip as memorable as Richard Nixon’s famous banana-peel incident.
Though Parasail Catalina sometimes offers discounted rates online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.

About California Parasail
A boat zips along through the water, trailing behind it an open parachute elevated to almost a quarter-mile in the air. This isn't a scene from a spy movie, but rather a scenic parasailing tour from California Parasail, whose lines can lift patrons up to 1,200 feet above the crystal blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. As parasailers relax into their harnesses and take in breathtaking panoramic views, they can also take comfort in knowing they're in safe hands––all captains hold a US Coast Guard license and all crew members adhere to the practices of the Water Sports Industry Association. They operate runs throughout Avalon and Catalina Island, as well as Balboa Island, Newport Beach, and Long Beach, allowing patrons to glimpse views of different coastal areas and befriend cumulus clouds with varying regional dialects.
