I’m just content to have conquered my fear!
Shawn, Aug 2019
I’ve been seeing people go parasailing for years but it was only during my recent trip that I mustered enough guts to actually do it myself. Boy, was that worth it! Parasailing was a beautiful experience – yes, that’s right – I described it as beautiful! I thought it would be scary at first but you actually feel that you’re just gliding through the air.I enjoyed the ride and most of all, I was the one who was up in the air for awhile. Would I do it again? Probably! If I have the chance again. But for now, I’m just content to have conquered my fear. – Shawn

There was actually three options available in parasailing.
D. Smith, Aug 2019
There was actually three options available in parasailing. You can go solo, tandem, or triple. I chose to go on my own because my buddy wouldn’t go with me. Parasailing is actually something that looks terrifying but actually isn’t. It was a pleasant ride and I had a great view of the ground from where I was. But the truth is, I expected a bit more excitement – maybe it’s just me.I can’t complain about any aspect of the ride though. The guide was very thorough in making sure I knew what to do. Overall, it’s been a pretty good and I would do it again.
Our Response, Aug 2019
