Get Physical: Go Parasailing in Pairs!

Love the idea of skydiving, but you're too scared to try? Parasailing gives you the sensation that you're flying, without having to jump out of a moving plane. Plus you can do it with a friend.

Basically you and your friend wear harnesses that are hitched to a parachute called a Parasail. The harness is then connected to a motorboat through a wound-up rope.

You and your parasailing partner stand at the back of the boat and as the boat starts moving, the wind catches the Parasail and inflates it. The rope is slowly let out, and you are both lifted higher and higher up into the air. When your "flying" time is over, you will be "reeled" back in towards the boat.

Not only is flying above the water beautiful, sharing that kind of exhilarating experience with someone you care about is bound to bring you closer together. Parasailing in pairs costs $40-60 a person, and I think it's totally worth it.

I went parasailing in Ft. Lauderdale with my cousin. It was expensive, but definitely so worth it. The view was incredible and we went higher up than I originally thought. Other people from the shore told us that it looked like we went past the horizon and that was amazing.

Okay para sailing is one sport you can't get me to do. 1) I'm afraid of heights and 2) I can't swim. Even if there was no swimming invloved I still would freak me out. the thought of being in the middle of the ocean and not knowing how to swim scares me no matter what. hahahaha I know, I know I'm a loser.

My husband and I went para sailing in Panama City this past March while he was deployed there. It was so fricken cool. All you heard was the wind and we seen sea turtles swimming below us. I would do it again in a heart beat. Just as long as they dont dip us in the water. My bottoms almost fell off. No one needs to see my who-who 100ft up in the air.
