South Carolina’s picturesque Hilton Head Island remains an aquatic wonderland, especially for those with a penchant for oceanic thrills. Within minutes of arrival, travelers can swiftly hop aboard a speedy wave runner, join a dolphin tour, and hook a jumbo Spanish mackerel deep at sea. However, nothing tops the sheer exhilaration of parasailing in Hilton Head Island, especially when you choose a Sunset Rental-approved outfitter, such as Sky Pirate Parasail.
The Thrill of a Lifetime: Parasailing in Hilton Head
Contrary to popular belief, parasailing in Hilton Head caters to nearly every age group, including kids six and up. While you’re floating 500 feet above the turquoise Atlantic, you’ll obtain unobstructed, jaw-dropping views of the island, spanning approximately 25 miles inland or seaward. Sunset Rentals of Hilton Head recommends three local parasailing gurus, all of which lie a short distance from our finest vacation homes.
The folks at Sky Pirate operate out of Broad Creek Marina, located inside a still, meandering Intracoastal waterway. The marina itself plays host to kayaking outfitters, fishing charters, and a popular pub. Sky Pirate’s state-of-the-art, 12-passenger vessel boasts an 800-foot line, so get ready for some serious airtime. When you’re not suspended 500 feet in the air above Calibogue Sound, you’ll likely spot curious dolphins, pearly egrets, and oceanfront plantations.
Island Head’s 90-minute parasail costs a mere $79 per person. The Island Head team emphasizes the surrounding beauty, including Harbour Town Lighthouse, Daufuskie Island, and the sprawling Lowcountry. Flights typically last anywhere between eight and 10 minutes, which is the industry average—just be ready to make a splash at the tail-end of your voyage!
H20 Sports is based out of the Harbour Town Yacht Basin, an idyllic slice of the island where travelers flock for golf, sea-based adventures, sailing, and coastal cuisines. And H2O knows a thing or two about aquatic thrills, as they offer everything from wakeboarding to alligator tours and old-fashioned parasailing in Hilton Head Island. They offer “the best view of the island”—a true bird’s eye view at scorching (yet safe) speeds. It’s worth noting that H2O offers the cheapest “observer rides” for those afraid of heights but still want to motor through Calibogue Sound.
