Do you want to go parasailing?
Or do you want to go SKY SURFING?
Sky Surfer is a top of the line, 35ft, Coastguard certified parasailing boat, the biggest and best around! This allows us to offer you and your family the most comfortable, safest experience possible! We are located in Orange Beach, AL and run out of the Perdido Beach Resort Dock.
What To Expect:
Your Sky Surfing experience begins in the comfortable, cushioned seats of our beautiful 15 passenger, USCG-Inspected parasailing vessel. This is where you will meet the Captain and one of our friendly, fully-trained deckhands, Cale or Brian! We will begin by safely securing everyone in a harness. Once in the gulf, flyers will be safely seated on our very spacious, padded back deck and secured to the chute. You will then be gently lifted off of the deck and in no time, you will be surfing away into the sky! Now, just sit back and enjoy your flight hundreds of feet over the beautiful Alabama Gulf. Our experienced Captain, with your permission, will even fly you just low enough to dip your legs into the water and then swiftly return you back into the sky!
What makes SKY SURFER different?

Prepare to meet the infamous swash-buckling pirate, Captain Jack, Deckhand Brian Braxton has also served as a beach attendant since 2017 and is renowned for his spot-on impersonations of Spider-Man and Captain Jack! His costumes are self-made, the products of hard work and boundless creativity. Brian is one of the kindest souls you will ever meet and is determined to give you and your family a memorable, fun experience!
Capt. John Mattis, our Spring Captain, has been a parasail Captain out of Virginia Beach 12 years. He loves parasailing because there is nothing better than putting smiles on faces & creating lifelong memories for customers! When he is not on a parasail boat you can usually find him on his boat with friends & family. Some say he has passed more bouys than telephone poles!
Deckhand John Pittman grew up in Panama City Beach and has 20 years of offshore boating experience. Fishing and sightseeing in the Gulf of Mexico is not only a passion but a way of life for John. John is excited to share this unique opportunity showing the wonders of the Gulf of Mexico to tourist through Parasailing aboard Sky Surfer!
Josey Rochester, born and raised in Orange Beach, is our first female parasail deckhand. She grew up as a charter fisherman’s daughter and it is only fitting for her to become a deckhand. The highlight of parasailing, to her, is seeing the smiles on customer’s faces. If she is not parasailing you can find her attending to customers on the beach, spending time with her family or long boarding the trails in the Gulf State Park. Parasailing has become a passion for her. Josey says there is nothing like flying and getting even more acquainted with her hometown from up above!
