If you are looking for fun water sports and enjoy the amazing views of our island then fly with Parasailing. Fly alone or in-tandem as a couple and enjoy the experience together. If you like, get dipped in the water or come in to land completely dry.The excursion will be around 35mins – 60mins including the boat-ride and each person flying for 10 to 12 minutes.
Parasailing has evolved into a safe, easy and thrilling activity. It’s an adventure anyone, from 8 to 80 years old, can enjoy because there is no running or jumping, and no experience is necessary. Enjoy the best views in Zanzibar – from the sky! From 300 meters in the air, see the brilliant colors of the coral reef around the northern tip of Zanzibar – stretching over 2 kilometers into the ocean. Gaze at the sandy, white beaches of Nungwi and Kendwa (rated top 10 in the world), surrounded by tropical trees, and dotted with resorts and local fishing villages.Your Parasailing Captain will provide safety and flying instructions to ensure you have a fantastic time in the safest way possible.
When it is your turn to parasail, you will be secured in a safety harness. You begin your flight seated on the back platform of the parasailing boat and your harness is attached to the parasail, which is already connected to the hydraulic winch system by a rope. As the boat accelerates, the flight instructor will slowly release the rope and the parasail will gently pull you up. You will feel the parasail boat sliding out from underneath and – WHOOSH – you are up in the air flying!
You are safely and securely attached to the rope allowing you to float in the air and enjoy the thrill of flying and the amazing panoramic views of the island. The flight lasts approximately 10 – 12 minutes. At the end of the flight, the hydraulic winch system will gently reel you back in until you land softly, like a feather, on the boat’s platform. The staff will unclip you from the parasail and now you can sit back and enjoy the relaxing boat ride.
