If thrill seekers were to make a list of the most exciting sports, parasailing is sure to be on it. The sport involves you being strapped carefully on a parachute, while attached to a vehicle. As the vehicle starts moving, you are pulled up in the air. In the Maldives, it is a watersport performed using a speedboat. As the boat drives off, you are taken on a journey of a lifetime. Enjoy the exhilarating feeling of the wind in your hair and the sun on your skin while you take in the view beneath you; the pristine Maldive islands, coloured in turquoise, green and white.
The sport does not take any effort on your part and requires no training. All you need to do is sit back and relax as you soar up in the air. An expert team is present at all times to assist you, from helping you with your kit to briefing you on the safety procedure. Look out for the playful dolphins and other aquatic fish that peaks out of the water to great you as in you immerse yourself in the view of the Indian Ocean beneath you. Whether you go parasailing with a loved one or solo, it gives you the thrill of a lifetime as you soak in the bird’s eye view of the ocean, soaring high above a motorised speedboat.
Here are some of the resorts in the Maldives offering parasailing. Every resort offers a captivating aerial view and an experience unique to it. The sport requires you to wear a life jacket for your safety, and if you are a first timer, you can even have an expert accompany you in the air. There is no wrong time to plan your trip, as Maldives has plenty of sunshine all year round. However, to make sure you do not get stuck in a drizzle, ask the hotel staff to check the weather before you make your booking.
