Submerge yourself in a different world, where your air becomes ocean, your foliage is a coral garden, and your vehicle is one of the world’s most sophisticated submarines.

Guests look out the large view-ports for superior reef viewing, and a scuba diver brings a variety of sea creatures to the windows for close-up views by guests.

Parasail in paradise is something for everyone to enjoy and experience. Almost anyone can fly – young, old, single or in tandem (or even triple depending on body weights and wind conditions). No experience is necessary and there is nothing to learn. You can just sit back and enjoy the ride. First you are seated on the back deck of the boat, and your harness is attached to the parasail. As the boat begins to accelerate, you feel the vessel sliding out from underneath of you and off you go! At the end of the ride the crew reels you in like a fish, and you land like a feather standing up on the back deck of the boat.
