  • To cancel or reschedule your reservation please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your trip time to receive a full refund. There will be no refunds or rescheduling if you miss the scheduled departure time. If we have to cancel due to inclement weather we will issue a full refund.

  • The great news is that there is not a minimum weight per person required to come and fly with us, and that is why anyone age 7 and up is welcome.  Since we can fly up to 3 people at a time (which is way more fun anyway because you get to share the experience with your family/friends), we can always get the group up over the 150 lbs. minimum needed for the parachute.  The maximum weight we can fly for the parachute will vary  depending on wind conditions that day.  The maximum weight is approximately 450 lbs. 

  • Using our state of the art custom parasail boats, we leave the docks and head out into the Lydia Ann Channel.  Flyers will wear life jackets and be seated in harnesses that will attach to a bar of the parasail.  You will then sit down on the launch deck and let the winch do the rest of the work.  With 500 feet of line, you will be reeled out in a controlled and safe manner to heights of 200-300+ feet to take in the breath-taking views high over the waters of Port Aransas.  At the end of your ride, you will be reeled back in and land safely on the launch deck.  It’s as easy as that!

  • We don’t allow pets on the boat as they can freak out and create an unsafe atmosphere for other riders. We will supply cool water and a fan while we watch your furry family members at the dock while your out on the trip.
  • No experience is needed.  The Captain and crew will do all of the work and explain anything you need to know.  All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.  If you do have some sort of physical aliment, such as back or neck injuries, please inform the captain before you leave.  We do not recommend anyone with these types of injuries go on the boat due to the possible roughness of the waters.  Safety for everyone aboard is our most important concern.

  • Reservations are HIGHLY encouraged.  Due to the popularity of this activity and the limited seating, during peak times and weekends there is a very good chance we will not have openings.  However, if there is room on the boat, walk-ups are welcome.

  • Because all takeoffs and landings are made from the boat, there is no need to ever get in the water.  In the unlikely event of a boat malfunction while a flyer is up in the air, the parasailors will slowly drift down to the water wearing a life jacket.

  • For safety reasons we do not allow pregnant women to participate in parasailing. 

  • No problem.  Some people want to get the ”lay of the land” before they come fly with us.  If you are unsure, we suggest that you come on down to the dock, see our operation, and talk to the folks just getting back from their trip.  We know what kind of fun they have each and every trip, and they will have no problem convincing you of why you should go up.  You can book your slot right then and there.   One word of caution though, we book up pretty quickly as we get closer to take off time, so it may be tougher to get a spot to fly right away.

  • Parasailors must be at least 7 years old to fly.  Anyone 17 or younger must have a parent/guardian sign the liability forms.  There is no maximum age limit for flyers.  We not only like to pair or triple up our younger riders because they get to share the experience, but we also do it to get the weight up to our 150 lb. minimum parachute requirement. Observers must be at least 2 years old to ride on the boat.

  • This is South Texas and we are known for our hot and sunny days.  Bathing suits and beach attire are always recommended but not required, and we will pretty much send you up in anything you feel like putting on.  Dress however you are comfortable, but remember that you are on the water and can easily get wet, even just riding on the boat.  We will ask that you leave your shoes behind at the dock.

  • Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your camera, video recorder or any other electronic device on board you would like.  Having said that, we do not recommend that you bring these items on board, as electronics and salt water do not go well together.  That is why we offer to take photos of your trip and you can rent a rugged HD video camera from us, and not mess up your stuff and ruin your trip.  Chute ‘Em Up, LLC will not be responsible for any loss or damage to electronics brought on board.  We do offer photography packages and suggest you inquire about those and leave your expensive cameras at home where they are safe and dry.
