Enjoy a non-conventional form of Parasailing whereby the participant is attached to a hydraulic winch, the shoot is deployed behind the boat, you are then attached to the shoot via a harness and a hydraulic winch lets you out from a deck at the back of the boat. After the flight, the winch draws you back onto the deck again alleviating the need for a traditional parasail where you would land into the water.
The activity is available all year round and is dependent on weather conditions. No experience is required, ideally, the participants should be 12 years or older special concessions can be made for younger children if they are accompanied by an adult and participate via tandem flight.
