Parasailing has become the most popular watersport on the Grand Strand, and for good reason. When it comes to making lasting memories during your Myrtle Beach vacation, nothing beats a day soaring with the shore birds. Featuring a giant canopy that serves as a parachute, passengers are harnessed to a rig that is suspended in the salt air over the ocean. Riders lift off from a platform on the boat's bow and ascend to ride the wind.
Offering a bird's-eye view of the entire Grand Strand and the Atlantic Ocean, passengers are treated to a one-of-a-kind experience. Many outfitters allow two to three people per ride, letting friends and family members enjoy the thrill together.
There are no shortage of watersports companies offering parasailing on the Strand, with most also offering deep-sea fishing and dolphin-viewing cruises, jet ski and Banana Boat rentals and even scuba diving trips. Downwind Sails is located in downtown Myrtle Beach and is the oldest parasailing outfitter on the Strand.
