Meet Captain Lee and Grand Bend Parasail!
Tell us about Grand Bend Parasail: What it is? When it started? How did you start your parasailing business?
Captain Lee Marcoux: Grand Bend Parasail does parasail adventure charters over Lake Huron, Grand Bend Beach in Ontario. This is our 8th season; we were established in 2012. After moving here to Grand Bend, I noticed there was everything but parasailing! So with my experience and fellow Captain Sean Bennett's, it all began.
What is your experience or background with parasailing? It’s truly a unique activity and business; how did you get involved with it and turn it into your own business too?
Captain Lee Marcoux: I’ve worked on yachts, in skydiving and B.A.S.E jumping business for many years. Combining the two was a natural fit.

How Foxquilt Helped Captain Lee Marcoux and his Parasailing Business
When did you realize you needed insurance for your parasailing business?
Captain Lee Marcoux: From the start! It's imperative to have.
For many water sport businesses like parasailing charters, having the right business insurance is crucial and beneficial. Not only can having business insurance show customers that you're prudent, responsible and trustworthy, but it can also prevent having to pay large fees out of your own pocket (or worse) if a claim were to unfortunately happen.
Why did you pick Foxquilt for your Parasailing Insurance needs? How did the process go?
Captain Lee Marcoux: We found Foxquilt online and have been very happy to have met Kassa [Foxquilt Senior Account Executive.] Grand Bend Parasail is such a unique business to find insurance for; yet, Kassa was persistent and great to do business with. I definitely would recommend Foxquilt.
