Can anyone tell me if a 7 year old can go parasailing? Is there a weight limit, she only weighs about 55-60 lbs. My husband & I have never been & thought it would be fun, my daughter does not have alot of fear & asked about it. I am not sure if it would be safe for her to go.

If the vendor does not have an age limit ... but all SHOULD HAVE a weight limit .... they can just double her up. DD was aboout 7 first time she went. I was signed up to go with her, but they let her double up with brother who was 11 .... they need something like 100 lb minimum to safely control the 'chute, but they have tandem rigs .... everyplace we've done it anyway.

Seeing as your daughter is so light, many quality operators will have a set-up to allow all three of you to ride at once.
