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.
You never stood on a building, never rode a vehicle, never looked down from such a high place, right?
What kind of words can you use to convey the feeling of looking out at the blue ocean far below your bare feet to those who haven’t experienced it yet?
