Duck & Corolla Parasail has a mission to be the industries’ most respected and esteemed parasail company. Establishing a company culture of respect and support for our crew members, we provide exceptional service to our loyal customers.
Who We Are
Duck & Corolla Parasail is compromised of the unique talents and skills of Owner/Operator Ed, Captain Grant and First Mate Ben. Each bring to the table their combined experience working in the parasailing and boating industry for many years.
Our United States Coast Guard Licensed 100-Ton Master Captains have over 40 years of industry experience combined—an unmatched level of parasail-exclusive experience from the northern beaches to the southern-most point of these amazing Barrier Islands.
We strictly adhere to the WSIA (Water Sports Industry Association) weather and equipment standards, which is not a requirement but a bonus—it guarantees the safest possible parasail excursion for you and your loved ones.
Our powerful, top-of-the-line boats were designed specifically for parasailing and are proven to ensure the most comfortable and dry ride around the sound.
We welcome observers if space allows.
Only one per reservation at time of booking.
Photos are our tried and true way to capture amazing photos of your excursion, from start to finish.
Our First Mate will photograph your trip from the minute you take off to the minute you land, leaving you with approximately 50 professional images on an SD card that YOU get to take home!
How awesome? Yeah, we know!

Meet Your Crew
Captain Ed has been a licensed 100-Ton Master Captain for well over two decades. Working all the way from Maine to the Outer Banks, he has flown over 35,000 happy customers! Ed attended Maine Maritime Academy for four years, where he studied Small Vessel Operations and has been a commercial fisherman on the East Coast for twenty years. An avid waterman, you’ll absolutely enjoy a safe and fun experience while on his boat.
Captain Grant has been parasailing on the Outer Banks since parasailing on the Outer Banks literally started—decades ago! He is a true OBX parasail O.G. and is a huge asset to the crew. Grant is an absolute joy to be around and enjoys all things outdoors. During the off-season, he travels cross-country to explore the vast and oh-so-beautiful world around us. We absolutely love a captain with a solid sense of curiosity and adventure. Afterall, these traits kind of feel built into our DNA.
Ben joined our team four years ago and has been an excellent First Mate throughout all of them. He is a locally living graduate of Radford University. He is skilled at his craft, friendly, and just an all-around team player. We are lucky to have him on board (and so are you!)
We scheduled this excursion on the same day we wanted to head out. The crew was very friendly and explained everything thoroughly. The kids enjoyed themselves. I would happily do this again. Thanks Grant!
Great experience! Easy to plan ahead and book reservation via website. All info we needed to know was sent in confirmation email. Bathroom to use onsite upon arrival. Punctual start and end time. Professional and friendly experience, felt safe and would definitely recommend!!
Just a great experience over all! This was my first time parasailing so I was a bit nervous. The two guys that took us out explained everything that was going on and what would be happening. We had booked a 5 pm time frame and a storm was going to be happening then so we were able to change our time frame with no problems. Loved it
Well, we accomplished our first ever parasailing as a family (except for my wife). Of course we did all of the research to find a reputable parasailing company and Corolla Parasailing did not disappoint. The most they will take is 10, plus observers. My wife did not parasail, but for $25, was able to be on the boat and watch everyone and get good pictures. You are strapped in like sitting in a swing and go off the back of the boat. There are two guys on the boat driving and taking care of the parasailers. These two were outstanding and paid great attention to detail. In fact, due to the high winds, my son and I were the last two to parasail for at least part of the day as they would not take the risk of sending others up (we were the last 2 in our group, so all 10 were still able to go). Recommend to wear a swimsuit and tshirt since you may get wet on the boat rides. Also, the guys on the boat make their money off tips. If you don't tip in the website when you since up, bring some cash. Enjoy the adventure!!
