100% nil injury record!

Parasailing is the safest form of parachuting, because the parachute is inflated before youíre attached to it. This makes the whole experience safe, yet exhilarating at the same time. Click here to see how it works.


It is with great regret that we have decided to suspend our services. As our regular customers know, since proving the viability of using the River Humber for leisure purposes, our business has been undermined by publicly funded opposition and a lack of co-operation from the local councils. The B.H.P.A. who were formerly our governing body have also severely restricted our operations. The final straw has been having to resort to using the Freedom of Information Act to obtain health and safety information from the council essential to the day to day running of our business. It is next to impossible to operate under these conditions. We will shortly be publishing a website outlining all of our experiences from starting Humber Parascending in 1999 to the present time. If you are interested to read this, then please bookmark this page and visit again.

We are very proud of our 100% nil injury record, the fact that we have provided thousands of people from all over the country with an amazing experience, and raised thousands of pounds for various charities despite all the opposition we have faced. Our sincere thanks go to everyone who has used our services over the last 11 years.


In addition to our parasailing trips, we offer a selection of boat trips on the River Humber and River Hull. The boat can take up to 8 passengers at a time, but weíre happy to cater for larger numbers if required.

For thrill seekers we offer the chance to travel at breathtaking speed across the river... and if you really want the ultimate adrenaline rush you  can stand on the flight deck too.

For those who prefer a slower ride, we offer trips up the River Hull as well as wildlife spotting trips at Readís Island. These trips are suitable for small children.

Weather permitting, youíll find us on Victoria Pier, every weekend of our season, Bank Holidays and weekdays too during the summer months. Click here for more details about how to find us.

Advance bookings are required for trips to the Humber Bridge and South Ferriby, especially during the school summer holidays.

Although bookings are not required for our shorter trips, if you are making a special journey we advise you to telephone us before setting off to avoid disappointment.

Please note all trips are subject to weather conditions.

All passengers are fitted with lifejackets prior to embarkation.
