Flying on a parasail in Rio de Janeiro is an opportunity to experience the wonderful city from a completely different and unexpected perspective! The boarding point is at Marina da Glória, where we depart by boat and and head towards the most suitable location for the activity based on the day’s wind conditions.
As we open the parachute, the take-off happens slowly and gradually, taking the passenger from 30 to 80 meters high! Moreover, just like the landing, it’s done directly from the boat’s platform, without getting wet!
This is the moment to enjoy all the beautiful and incredible landscapes our city offers. Besides an unforgettable flight, you’ll also delight in a wonderful boat tour! Are you ready for it?
Our speedboats are located at Marina da Glória, in the South Zone of Rio de Janeiro. We will meet at the main departure pier, in front of the restaurants.
After the guidance of one of our instructors, you will wear a life jacket and a harness for parasailing. We open the parachute independently, and that’s when the magic happens. All take-offs and landings are done slowly and gradually. As a result, the flight is smooth and serene. After reaching a certain altitude, you no longer hear the boat’s engine, and you are left only with the sea breeze, enjoying that wonderful and unforgettable sensation.
The itinerary will depend on the wind direction of the day. We depart from Marina da Glória and head towards the best conditions. It may include: Urca, Sugarloaf Mountain, Niterói, Forte da Laje, Museum of Tomorrow, Botafogo Cove, Rio-Niterói Bridge, and much more!
No. The flight is entirely controlled by our pilot on the boat. For parasailing, you just need to come prepared to have a lot of fun!

We don’t have a specific minimum age, but it’s necessary for the child to fit in the parasail seat. Generally, children from 7 years old can already fly.
We can go up to 30-80 meters in height. However, we can also fly lower if that’s the passenger’s preference. Just signal our team during the flight, and we’ll adjust accordingly.
The entire tour takes around 2 hours, depending on the size of the group, which can be up to 10 passengers. The parasailing flight itself has a standard duration of about 10 minutes.

Can I bring my camera? “We rent out our GoPro camera for photos and videos. It is securely attached to the passenger’s wrist during the flight, capturing photos and automatically recording videos. We share these media files via Google Drive. If you already have your own camera, you can bring it without any issues. We can also take photos of the boat with the passenger’s cellphone if that is their preference.
We operate every day, depending on weather conditions. The hours vary according to the wind forecast for the day. We monitor a website and provide the best flight time to the customer about 3 days before the flight.
