The adventure begins on the boat. Motor out into the sea while your parasailing instructor provides a safety briefing. (When the important stuff is out of the way, your captain will also provide some rocking good tunes!) Once you've reached the fly zone, your harness will be fitted and you'll be clipped onto the chute. Then you'll be winched up into the air by the experienced staff. Launch and landing by winch is proven to be the safest parasailing method, so you're in good hands!
Loosen up and feel the wind in your hair as you fly through the skies. Take in the scenery of the Gold Coast skyline from beneath the colorful canopy of your parasail—you'll have 360-degree views ranging from the mountains to islands and everything in between. At the peak of your parasailing flight, you'll be 100m above the water! Below, the water teems with fish and seabirds—if you're lucky, you might even see a dolphin!
If you've got a mate who's as much of a daredevil as you are, bring them along for a day of tandem parasailing! You'll bond over the incredible sensation of soaring on the warm breeze, legs dangling, holding on tight to your harness. Seasoned parasailers recommend it—like a bottle of wine, your parasailing experience is better shared!
Flying over the water is a real adrenaline rush, but there are thrills to be had closer to sea level as well. You can have the best of both worlds with a parasailing and jet ski combination deal! Check out Gold Coast deals that offer parasailing with a jetski hire included. You can zoom around the azure waters on these powerful, agile machines before your parasailing adventure begins. Strap on a life jacket and jet across the sea at speeds of up to 100kph!
If you've got a sense of adventure and are in search of exciting things to do in the Gold Coast, look no further than an action-packed parasailing experience. You'll be riding high long after the day comes to a close!
