Flying to New Heights…

At 800 feet the World Stops…

Traffic, crowds, and the general busyness of life. At 500, 700, or 800 feet, the only sound you will hear is your heart beating from the exhilarating views. If you are on the Outer Banks, let North Beach Watersports show you the best views in the area.

Lowest Prices!

NBW features the best prices on the beach for 500, 700, and 800 feet full length flights! Our competition wants to charge you more for almost half the flight time. At NBW we are not herding cattle, we are building experiences and relationships. Start your adventure use the “Book Now” button above to reserve your time. Due to COVID 19 operational changes for your safety time slots are limited. 


No Hidden Fees or Markups!

At NBW there are No hidden fees, no creative markups on services. Some companies like to lure you in with low cost then up-sell your service at the door. At NBW every flight is a full length flight, no shortcuts.  

Highest Legal Flights!

As retired USCG, we believe your safety comes first. The FAA restricts the national ceiling height for parasailing to 400 feet (800 feet of line). If you are being sold more, then they are either breaking the law, or stealing your money. Here at NBW we believe in total honesty and transparency. 

Best Maintained Equipment!

Our retired Coast Guard Captains know how to maintain a boat for your safety. We challenge anyone to compare us to our competitors. Our Captains training required them to keep all USCG gear at the peak of performance for rapid response to life saving situations. The Coast Guard would not put up with sub standard worn out gear that can put lives on the line, neither will North Beach Watersports! 

Most Experienced Captains!

Our captains have the most combined parasailing experience on the Outer Banks. This is just another step North Beach Watersports takes to guarantee our customers safety. Anyone can claim they have a lot of experience on their website,  we have the paperwork to back it up!


We have a 100% accident free safety record. Our retired USCG owners put your safety above all! If conditions are not optimal we will not fly and will do our best to reschedule at a time that works for you. The simple truth is, we would rather lose a sale, then risk your life. We encourage anyone looking for parasail services in the area to do your research online before booking with any company.

I highly recommend this place

This is a top notch operation. We rented Jet Skis and also did parasailing. We found the staff to be professional and safe. The 2 guys who took us parasailing were TERRIFIC! We had never done it before and they made us feel very comfortable. My 10 year old daughter was a little hesitant and they were SO good with her! Prices are high but no different from anywhere in the Outerbanks and they offer all kinds of discounts
