What You'll Get

The wind harnessers at Put in Bay Parasail send patrons soaring beneath rainbow-hued parasails or roaming the glassy waters of Lake Erie on paddleboards. Led by captain Jason Hall, each beginner-friendly parasailing excursion holds up to six people and requires only a promise to be friendly to passing seagulls. Parasailers take off from and land on the boat's flight deck, rising to a height of 300 feet, and can remain dry throughout the experience or request a dip in the water. Depending on the wind and wave conditions, patrons can also opt to fly tandem or soar solo. During each flight, camera-wielding employees can snap up to 30 action photos on a digital SD card, capturing man's greatest triumph over gravity since the invention of Muggsy Bogues.
Those who prefer to remain closer to the earth's core can explore the lake's liquidity on rented paddleboards. Standup paddleboarding is an easy way to catch a wave, sunbathe, or search for a friend's missing cell phone, and Put in Bay Parasail's wave watchers can point out the best spots to paddle out for an ideal excursion. All standup rentals come with a top-notch Starboard or Naish board, a paddle, and a life vest.

About Put in Bay Parasail
After spotting vacationers parasail over Florida's beaches, the founder of Put in Bay Parasail decided to create a way for North Coasters to get the same thrill above Lake Erie's waters. Since then, thousands of parasailers have taken flight and sailed up to 300 feet over the water, enjoying beach views and attempting to touch the sun while USCG-licensed captains safely steer. Setting forth from South Bass Island, Captain Jason Hall outfits guests with life vests and valuable knowledge nuggets, gleaned during more than two decades of water adventuring. Alternatively, high-quality paddleboards send aqua explorers on adventures closer to Erie's water. Staff point boarders in the direction of great spots for sunbathing, bobbing, or surfing based on their skill level and fluency at communing with lake trout.
