In tandem Parasailing, two or more participants weighing up to about 250 kgs also could be launched. Most tandem flights are carried out by boat, on large water bodies, like lakes, back waters of dams, and in open seas.

Longer tow ropes can be used, but the lack of open spaces without obstructions, is the reason for the sport not being popular.
