  • Parasailing needs to be done 250m away from the shoreline for safety purposes and if you encounter an operator using a speedboat, best avoid at all costs.
  • Only insist on licensed watersport operators with proper safety equipment and professional instructors.
  • Parasailing needs good wind so forget about going in the morning. Better to do it after 2pm as the wind picks up along the shoreline.
Check out Wave Runner Watersports or East Wind Watersports. Both are professional and licensed operators with a good track record in safety. With trained professionals, you will be sure to get the best experience at some of the best prices on the island. Don’t waste your time with the beach boys and illegal vendors who constantly hassle you with good prices. Their equipment are usually shoddy and instructors aren’t properly trained in safety.
