Delaware: Fly High

Get a bird’s-eye view as you parasail hundreds of feet over the ocean.

What Is It? A thrilling experience where up to three people attached to a parachute fastened to a motorboat soar high in the air while the boat cruises along the ocean below.

Why Do It? This bucket list item is the most scenic, tranquil way to experience the Delaware coast. Plus, the adrenaline rush you get from soaring with the seagulls—and from getting dipped in the water (optional)—will spice up any beach vacation.

Make It Happen: Contact Dewey Beach Parasailing—they’ve got two locations, a perfect safety record, and professional staff who’ll get you flying high.
