Parasailing

Get high in the sky!!!!

Parasailing is a recreational activity, which sets you free in the sky. Technically speaking, while parasailing you will be towed behind a high-speed boat or car, but don’t worry, your safety is completely ensured, as you will be attached to a specially designed canopy wing. This wing is called parasailing wing. Depending on the power of the boat or car, you can up to two friends up there at the same time.

Parasailing is different from paragliding, as it does not give any control in your hands. However, it has the advantage that you are completely free to have fun and not worry about any technicality.

There is no specific training required for parasailing. Except for the monsoons, in India, it can be done at any time of the year. It is always advisable to keep check on the weather, and call and confirm with the facility if everything is ok, before arriving at the spot.

The broad tree of parasailing branches out into three categories:

  • Platform Parasailing
  • Winchboat parasailing
  • Beach parasailing

Of the three, winchboat is the most popular. All three are available in India.
