How does it work?
We can take up to 15 passengers at a time on all three Coast Guard inspected vessels. Our friendly, experienced crew will assist you throughout your trip. One at a time the crew will assist you in securing your life vest and harness. Once they have launched the chute you will be asked to walk to the back deck of the boat so they can clip you in. You will sail away without ever touching the water. After your hang time in the chute, you will be brought back down to the boat. Lift your legs and land on your feet from the same spot you took off from!
How long is the ride?
Each flight is about 7 – 8 minutes of air time. Most trips are about an hour, depending on how many others are on the boat with you.
Can we fly together?
Absolutely! In fact, we think it’s best to share in the spectacular views with someone by your side. We fly our guests either tandem or triple, as long as the combined weight of all passengers in the chute at once is no more than 450 lbs. Ocean and wind conditions can also affect minimum and maximum weight.
Will I get wet?
You can get wet, or you can stay dry. Most people enjoy a quick dip of the feet, especially on a hot summer day, but if you prefer to stay dry, just notify the captain. Take off and landings are directly from the boat.
Can I take pictures?
Absolutely! Definitely, bring your camera with you or if you purchase a Photo Package our crew will take at least 50 pictures of your adventure on a 3 GB Card that you get to take home. Included on the card are 8 commemorative photos of Catalina from the air and the sea. (This is sold on site, not through our website.)
