Depending upon the number of guests, the trip will last no longer than 60 minutes. The actual flight time is between 10-15 minutes, with up to three people in the sky at once -- at 1,000 feet! If you would like to upgrade to the 1,200 ft flight which is longer you can do so upon arrival. We take a maximum of 10 people per trip so that the boat is not crowded. On the excursion you can either stay dry, or get wet. The choice is yours! Check out a video at www.Santabarbaraparasail.co

Good experience. It was a first for the people I went with and they really enjoyed it. Had hoped to be closer to the Channel Islands since it says “see the Channel Islands from the sky” and you’re nowhere near the islands; you’re barely away from the Santa Barbara pier. I mean yes technically you are still seeing the islands but the websites made me think we might be closer. Regardless, it was really neat to see seals (on a buoy) and Captain Dave makes sure to get you nice and close to them! The music is a good vibe. And floating high in the sky is a view you’ll remember forever! All in all it was a great time and I’m glad we did it. Zero regrets!!!

This was a wonderful experience. We had great weather throughout, and although we didn’t get to see any dolphins, we did spot some adorable sea lions.

Our parasailing experience was amazing. Dave is an experienced captain and guide, offering us what I believe to be the best experience in the area, by far. Thanks again Dave!
