This was amazing. The guides were very helpful and upbeat during the entire trip. If you want the best time, go the highest level up. I was able to see a small pod of whales having fun. It was scary and fun at the same time.
I have wanted to parasail for around 40 years, but have never had the guts! So I thought, well, if I don't do it now, I never will, so we went up, and it was brilliant! We had paid for 800 feet, but the lads sent us up 1200 feet, and charged us $20 extra when we got down! I got the impression this was quite normal! We sat on a metal bar, well strapped in, and took off-I was terrified, but it was actually very easy, and the views were amazing. We were up for about 12 minutes, you wouldn't want any longer because the bar gets a bit uncomfortable, and we landed easily on the boat (just in case you thought we landed in the sea!). Definitely a "must do".
It was great! The crew was wonderful!! Saw a shark and many whales while up in the air. Went with my 18 year old granddaughter and I am 74!!
Organized/stayed dry/competent group running boat / good instructions / sites beautiful / saw whale from above / clear day / something you need to do at least once !!!
Awesome fun, great way to start the day: with wonderful photo opportunities. Great boat crew. Was good fun enjoying the boat ride while others took turn to parasail, excellent value.
