The parasail cruise excursion camp is located at Orient Bay, the most popular beach of St. Maarten (Saint Martin) on the French side of the island. Enjoy 1.5 miles of soft sand and crystal clear blue waters, and great restaurants and bars scattered along the beach.

From your cruise ship terminal, you will take a taxi for a short and scenic 15-minute ride to Orient Bay. Upon arrival, check in with the Parasail operator and be prepared to enjoy this incredible adventure. As part of the fun, you will ride a jet ski to get to the parasailing boat just a few minutes away from shore. Once on board the parasailing boat, your English-speaking parasailing crew will go over the safety instructions and information to assure that you will have a great time.

The parasail boat was specially designed to safely launch you in a controlled ascension directly from the boat's parasail platform without getting wet! The crew will get you into the harness, hook it into the parachute bar and you will gently lift off! The experienced Captain does everything else, you just enjoy the freedom of flying through the sky with a fantastic view over Orient Bay and the island's surroundings!

You have the option to fly solo (by yourself) or tandem with another person (please see the order form for pricing information). Flight time is the same for single or double. The parasail flight is a peaceful experience. Take in the panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and even the neighboring island of St Barth, Anguilla, and Pinel.

When your 10 - 12-minute parasailing flight is completed (from take-off to landing back on the boat), the boat wench will reel you in and you will land back on the boat's parasail platform. The captain will only "dip" guests into the water if requested, otherwise, guests will not touch the ocean. You may be sharing the boat with other parasailing participants, so enjoy the boat ride while waiting for your turn. When all guests on board have completed their flight, the boat will return to the meeting spot and the jet ski will take you back to the beach (you may also change the parasailing time once you are on-site). Feel free to stay at the beach, you will have plenty of time to explore Orient Bay and enjoy other activities on-site.

Please note that there is a maximum of 10 to 12 guests per departure (depending on the water conditions and the guest's combined weight). The time is from take off to landing. The overall duration of this excursion could be 1.5 hours for all to complete their flights.

There may be an opportunity to purchase photos taken by the parasail excursion staff after the shore excursion. Or of course, you are welcome to bring your own camera! There may be some splashing of waves and spray that can damage electronics - please consider if you bring any cameras or cell phones or similar on board the parasailing excursion boat. Your cruise ship terminal is only a 15-minute taxi ride away from Orient Bay Beach.

This was by far the best excursion of this trip and rates as one of the best we've ever done. The guys and gal that work here are awesome and made us feel incredibly welcome. My teenagers parasailed while my husband and I stayed in the boat ... so much fun watching them enjoy themselves. It was incredibly wavy while we were there so we had some problems getting out to the boat on the jet ski, and I commend the guys on the jet skis for how they handled the situation. When we were done parasailing, we rented a couple very comfortable beach chairs for $10 each and enjoyed a few hours in St. Maarten. Drink service on the beach and a great little restaurant (good food, very slow service) right there as well. Highly highly recommend this excursion. One word of advice -- the taxi will try to drop you off at the main entrance to Orient Beach. Apparently they have a deal with the local restaurant that's located there. Do not let him drop you there. It's about a mile walk down the beach to the location you need to go to. I questioned the drop off with the driver and he said "it's right there." It wasn't ... so learn from our mistakes. :) It's also easy to get a taxi back to the ship from right behind the parasailing stand.

We did the tandem parasail. Weather was perfect and the water was beautiful. The 2 guys on the boat were very friendly and the jet ski ride to and from the boat was fun too!

 We haven't gone on the excursions yet but so far I am super pleased with the website. Especially because it asks for the cruise line info which is always scary for me to think we're going to miss the boat so I appreciate the validation of the cruise info.
