Parasailing is an exciting activity in which one or more people are pulled by a boat while being fastened with a canopy wing specially designed for such a purpose. The canopy wing is also known as the parasail wing. There is no fear of falling from the parasail as it is linked with the harness which gives a firm grip to the person and that canopy wing is then attached with the boat. Then the boat goes off at a high speed which takes the canopy wing or the para ascender along with the person on it, into the air. It can also uplift up to 3 people if a powerful engine boat is used.

The wait before your turn –
There are a lot of people with you who are also there for the same purpose. Hence you might need to wait for your turn to arrive, but that wait is worth for as after seeing your fellow parasailers you will not want to go away rather you will wait desperately for your turn to arrive.
The Launch –
When your turn arrives, a member of the crew makes you wear a life vest above the Parasailing swimsuit, this is just a necessary precaution and it does not have to make you afraid of it. Then one is fastened with a harness just to make sure that one doesn’t fall from the canopy wing while the take-up, but this doesn’t mean that there is a jerk, jolt, or bumps while the take-off. All the precautionary methods are taken to make sure that no mishap takes place. After all these safety protocols are taken into consideration the person is lifted in the air by the boat very smoothly and efficiently.
The Flight –
After reaching a specified destination height that is a few hundred feet above the water level, people find it very relaxing and calming after reaching that height.
Whether to descent or not –
After the soaring comes to an end the crew on the boat asks whether one wants to be dipped in the water or not before the boat lands. And it is totally up to the individual or group to decide how much water they want. The descending is without any bump or slam to the boat or water crashing, just a smooth landing.
