Soar and explore
Biking remains the predominant way to soak in the views on scenic Block Island. But one can only imagine what a bird’s-eye view of such landmarks as Mohegan Bluffs (right) and the Southeast Lighthouse would offer. With Block Island Parasail and Water Sports, you can take to the skies over Block Island’s pristine beaches and soar over one of New England’s top summer destinations. Rates start at $75, with group rates and tandem rides also available.
