Flying the infinite blue skies has always been an ambition us human beings dream of. The closest one could relate to is the sheer feeling of looking down big cities and the flurry of lights while on an airplane. Just imagine you were suspended about 70 metres (230 feet) above a seam of clouds (without the help of an airplane or a chopper); one could tell that it will be an unforgettable experience of a life time.
Aqua Sports & Fun at Kuramathi now offers the chance to fly sky high with the introduction of parasailing. Bookable at the Aqua Sports & Fun Excursions Centre, (conveniently located in front of the Eco Centre) this exhilarating adventure is one not to be missed, as you get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Rasdhoo Atoll and its titillating shades of blue. You are taken on board ‘Skyfall’, a powerboat that cruises up to 40 knots an hour, and given a briefing before your flight. Safety precautions are our utmost priority and we ensure that you are buckled up properly aligning to your level of comfort before the parachute lifts you up, up and away. Once you’ve eased in, the professional crew then helps you adjust on the mount and pretty soon you’ll be seeing the crew at an altitude of a maximum 70 metres. Be sure to photograph this moment as one mere flick will be enough to turn your friends green in envy.
Sign up for a parasailing excursion now, and experience how it is like to be a bird once in your life.
