Parasailing is a recreational activity where a person (two, three and more people may also ride at the same time) is towed behind a boat while attached to a parachute. A harness attaches to the parasail, which is connected to the boat. The boat then drives off, carrying the passenger into the air. The passenger has no control over the parachute. The activity is primarily a fun ride.Parasailing is alive and well and once you experience the exhilaration, you might just get hooked!The view:There’s nothing else like it. A literal bird’s eye view, without the buzz of an airplane deafening you. You can see from the vantage point for Dubai’s skyline and landmarks such as The Palm Island, Jumeirah Beach Residence, The Walk, Sheik's Island, Burj Al Arab to the horizon as you float along behind the boat, peaceful and calm, entirely at ease. You get to experience the world from high above, seeing a bigger scale than many people manage in their lifetime. There’s nothing else like it.
