Parasailing was the most memorable experience for our family. Not only exhilarating whilst in the air , but sitting on the boat admiring the coastline was also a bonus. The staff were fantastic and friendly. Will be doing this again when we return.

Most trips would be about an hour but you should allow a maximum 1.5hr for the total trip. The total time depends on how many are on board (max of ten). Hope that helps. Sharon
