Take advantage of this 3 in 1 set package to save and have more fun.
Parasailing – the ultimate sense of openness and a little thrill. You will be pulled by a motorboat and soar several dozen meters into the sky with a parachute behind you. The pleasure of looking at the sea of Cebu from the sky is outstanding. Parasailing in the emerald green tropical sea is the most pleasant experience. As the motorboat speeds up, my feet float in the air, and before I know it, the sea is far below. Only bring your swimsuit. A T-shirt and shorts are fine. It is safe because it is a “touch and go” method that takes off from the boat and returns to the boat. The real pleasure of parasailing is being able to feel the expansive sky in front of you with your whole body! ! Wouldn’t you like to feel like a bird and soar into the sky? Please enjoy the excitement of the boat running with the waves splashing and the view from the sky. All the special harnesses and parachutes are put on by dedicated staff. Feel the contrast between sky blue and marine blue from the sky.
Jetski – A jet ski is a motorcycle that runs on water. In Cebu Island, you can use jet ski even if you do not have a boat license. Instead of circling fixed buoys like other resorts, Cebu’s jets can go anywhere. You can reach the island on the opposite shore in just 5 minutes. Since there is no fixed course, it is necessary to make a firm self-judgment. Please be sure to receive guidance from the instructor before riding the jet ski. Listen carefully to the lecture so that you don’t run into shallow water or collide with other jet skis.
Banana boat (or water sled), is an unpowered, inflatable recreational boat meant to be towed. Different models usually accommodate three to ten riders sitting on a larger, main tube and resting their feet on two laterally flanking tubes which stabilize the boat. The main tube is often yellow and banana-shaped. Some models have two main tubes. Banana boating is a fun beach vacation activity that you can try with your friends and family.
