Paradise Parasail has been providing family fun on Lake Ozark for over 33 years! We have time-proven experience and safety you can trust. Our experienced USCG captains will give you the safest and most adventurous flight on vessels that speed along miles of shoreline. After harnessing adventure-takers into the smiley face chute, the wind naturally hoists riders aloft while the 600 foot line sails up above the water. Once capturing the astonishing views, you will have the option to take pleasure in a variety of free fall dips. Select a relaxing dip that just allows your toes to touch the water or a thrilling free fall that gets you soaked. When you are visiting Lake of the Ozarks, we guarantee the best ride anywhere. So make sure it's Paradise Parasail!

Was really fun! Took a six year old and the guys on the boat were great with her. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is due to not being allowed to take camera. Option to purpose pictures after.

I took my sister and her friend on this parasailing excursion and we all had a blast. My sister is not comfortable with heights but wanted to try this and she thoroughly had fun. The crew were very professional and took the utmost interest in our safety. Due to weight limitations we had to go up as different pairs then... More

We came by boat and I dropped my son and his wife off to go parasailing. We headed back out to the lake with their kids to watch them parasail. The parasail boat driver saw us out there and brought my son and his wife right down on the water next to the boat. The kids loved it! A giant... More

Location was a bit of an obstacle but once you locate it and take the long staircase down to it everyone was very friendly and helpful.

I didn't expect that I would go so high. But the entire parasailing was smooth and enjoyable. My husband and I did the one-dip package, and I'm not sure if all packages go that high. Definitely worth to try. We felt great that we did it.

I appreciate you taking time to share your parasailing adventure with us. The dips to the water are always a customer favorite. All of our flights let out the same amount of rope, that way we can guarantee the best views of Lake of the Ozarks. I agree, parasailing is definitely worth trying! Captain Neil More

Paradise Parasail was very organized, and it was clear they have been doing this for long time. We had a safe, fun parasailing adventure. The only downside was that we only boated around the same portion of the lake multiple times for the 3 mile experience - they stated that this was because it wasn't safe to go out into... More

This was the very last excursion on our vacation. THE FINALE! Well worth the extra drive time and money spent. My family had an absolute blast! The staff were awesome, knowledge, and courteous. My 8 year old is already asking when we can do it again so it looks like we will seeing you guys again next summer. Highly recommend!

our experience was very exhilarating. our wait, with an appointment, was not very long, the receptionists were friendly. Our captain was thorough and very friendly. The experience itself was wonderful. We 'dipped' into the lake and that was fantastic. We would definitely recommend it to anyone. We plan on taking our kids soon.
