Cd’A Parasail & Watersports, Inc. was established in 1994 and acquired by our family in 2003. Our staff is well trained and our equipment is always up-to-date and inspected on a daily basis. We have fun meeting people from all around the world and providing them with the best parasailing experience in the northwest!
Location: We are located downtown Coeur d’Alene on the Independence Point City Dock. The dock is just west of the Coeur d’Alene Resort and the same dock as the Sea Planes. See the “Contact Page to view a map”.
Hours: We parasail every hour on the hour from 10am to 7pm (weather permitting.). Sunday through Friday. We are a Seventh-Day Adventist family owned business and close every Saturday.
Okay, so how does it work?: We harness you into the parachute, which basically feels like you are sitting on a swing. We operate a hydraulic winch system, which means flyers take-off and land directly from the back of the boat. Flyers are winched out into the air from the deck, then winched back in after your flight. You can choose to be dipped in the water or not, therefore, it is not required to wear a bathing suit. Others waiting to fly will ride along in the boat and wait their turn to parasail.
Length of Ride: Each flyer is in the air for about ten minutes and usually out on the lake for up to an hour, depending on the number of flyers in that given boat. We are allowed to take up to 8 people out on the boat at a time; a rule which we strictly enforce.
Price-per-flyer: $60 per solo ride, $100 per tandem ride for 600′. Our Stratosphere flight is $80 per solo ride and $120 per Tandem ride at 800′ you also get a free digital download picture of yourself with the upgrade. It is well worth the extra $20 to go 200′ higher.
Souvenirs: We will take photographs of you parasailing, which can be purchased upon your return to the dock and online. We also have our signature t-shirts available for purchase. Just added in 2013, we now rent out Go Pro Blacks so you can have an awesome personal video of your parasailing experience! After your flight, we give you the SD card and you’ll have it to remember this fun and exciting experience forever. You can also pull pictures off of the Go Pro video and get some amazing shots.
Restrictions: Just about anyone can parasail! In 2012, our oldest flyer was a 98 year-old lady and we also parasailed paraplegics. Even the daring Evil Knievel has parasailed with us in the past! There are, however, maximum and minimum weight restrictions. The maximum weight limit is 375 lbs (combined weight for tandems). The minimum weight limit varies directly with the weather condition but is generally 150 lbs.
Payment: We accept cash, VISA, and MasterCard. We do NOT accept personal checks.
