Parasailing Activity in Mauritius
Parasailing offers you a breathtaking bird's eye view of the beautiful lagoon and beaches of Mauritius, making it one of the best things to do during your vacation in Mauritius.
What is Parasailing? Parasailing, also known as parascending, is an activity where a person is towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed parachute, known as a parasail. The boat then drives off, carrying the parascender into the air. If the boat is powerful enough, two or three people can parasail behind it at the same time.
The parasailing begins with a short safety briefing. Then you will be taken by boat to the launch pad where you will later take off and start the parasailing activity. Be sure to enjoy the boat trip where you can take in the clear tropical breeze, watch the waves and the golden shoreline from the boat.
Once you’ve reached the launch zone, you’ll be strapped in. Only after the ground assistants will check the rig and the flight harness will they signal the boat driver to start the engine and gradually accelerate the boat. You will slowly take off from the launch pad for a flight above the beautiful lagoon. As you drift up in the air, no steering is actually necessary as the sail follows the course of the boat. So you can take in all the amazing views and enjoy the feeling of weightlessness without any worries.
It is also optional to do a "touch and go", which means that on the way down, instead of just reeling back onto the boat, you will fly for a while above the ocean and then be lowered down for a dip in the sea before going up again while enjoying a very refreshing plunge.
