Parasailing is the ideal excursion for those looking for an affordable special sea-air activity. It offers a breathtaking bird's eye view of the beautiful lagoons and beaches of Mauritius.
Deals.mu offers you to enjoy parasailing in your preferred location:

The parasailing begins with a short safety briefing. Then you will have a speed boat transfer to the parasailing launch platform where you will later take off and start the parasailing experience.
Upon arrival to the launch platform, you will be connected with a secured harness to the parasail. Only after the ground assistants will check the rig and the flight harness they will signal the boat driver to start the engine and gradually accelerate the boat.
You will slowly take off from the launch pod for a 10 minutes parasail flight reaching as much as 50 meters high above the beautiful lagoon
What is Parasailing? Parasailing, also known as parascending, is an activity where a person is towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed parachute, known as a parasail. The boat then drives off, carrying the parascender into the air. If the boat is powerful enough, two or three people can parasail behind it at the same time.
It is also optional to do a "touch and go", which means that on the way down, instead of just reeling back onto the boat, you will fly for a while above the ocean and then be lower down for a dip in the sea before going up again while enjoying a very refreshing plunge.
