Parasailing Questions

We are looking at a few of us possibly parasailing when we are in MB in June. Have never done it before. Where is the best place to rent from? How long do you go out for? And coming from my one daughter "do they have to dip you in the water at any point"? (she is really paranoid about sharks).

Any information would be appreciated.

I have been once and don't remember the name of the company. My daughter begged them not to dip her and they did. lol. It is only for a couple of seconds though and is not that big of a deal. It was really fun, you should convince her to try it.

We went to Bob's in August. http://www.bobswatersports.com/

Be prepared to wait. They give you a time to be down at the beach and then you may have to wait 45 min. to an hour before it's really your turn. Not a problem except if it's really hot. I didn't go as it doesn't appeal to me but those that went said it was fun. You are taken out to the parasail boat in a different boat-very small- and it can be a very rough ride. Our friends 6 year old (loves adventure!) ended up not going up because the ride to the boat made him very nauseous. My friends daughter (16) is deathly afraid of sharks and had no problem with the ride.

If you like this type of attraction you'll have a fun time at Bob's.

There is one place located at the very far south end of Ocean Blvd between Sprinmaid and Crown Reef. I forget the name of it though.

By the way, I just noticed the "edit" button! I'm glad that put that on here
