We are coming in June and decided to try parasailing. Our son's fiancée has done it before in Florida and loved it. Have any of you went parasailing in MB? Which company did you use? Ocean Sports has the best ratings I think but they are at the opposite end of where we stay. Of course, I want a "safe" company so if that is the best, we are willing to drive south. I live about an hour away from where those two girls live that got in terrible parasailing accident down at Destin Florida a few years ago. I heard about it on our local news for several months so I'm a little nervous.

thanks!!

I am afraid of heights so it isn't happening for me. Lol. Our friend went last year in North Myrtle Beach with her daughter and loved it! Sorry don't remember the company.

The only parasailing we've done was in Cancun, so I can't comment on MB. However Downwinds is close to us and I know they stay busy and have a good local reputation.

Here's a list of "8 best." I have gotten jaded in my old age (or maybe I've always been this way) so I don't know where this the 8 best came from. Did they pay to be listed? Was it a popular vote? Did the just google for it? Anyhow...here they are.

Please let us know which you chose and what your thoughts are.

I'd like to hear more about this, too! I've been tempted to go and am considering it for August. Haven't researched any places yet, though, so I'm no help.

We used Ocean Sports many years ago (geez... I hate getting old). Very easy, tranquil and fun, and I'm not crazy about heights. The Banana boat ride out to the parasailing rig was crazy !

My family has gone parasailing twice in Myrtle Beach. We went through Crazy Sister Marina, located in Murrells Inlet, on both occasions. The staff was very helpful and seemed to be experienced. They also offer to take pictures while you're in the air, which can be purchased if desired. The views are absolutely incredible! If you're lucky, you'll be able to see a sea turtle or sting ray in the water below.
