Parasailing in Boracay, Philippines

Boracay is a well known beach located in Aklan, Philippines. It is an hour flight by air from Manila.  I have visited the island a lot of times. We used to arrive at Kalibo airport and take a 2 hour drive to Caticlan and from there we had to take a boat to Boracay Island. Now, I prefer coming to Caticlan airport because there is no need for the long drive.

instructions given

Parasailing was not in my itinerary when I last visited Boracay in April 2011. All I wanted was to relax but since I was there with one of my closest friend who happens to love adventure then there is no reason for me back out to the few activities that just popped into our mind while walking along the beach.

starting position

Boracay offers a lot of water sports. The cost of parasailing varies. This actually depends on how many are going to do the activity and how you bargain. We were informed that foreigners are usually given the higher price. I don't see the point in that though.

The team who brought us in the middle of the waters consisted of 5 people. 1 speedboat driver, 3 instructors/assistant, 1 photographer. They gave specific instructions before we were let go. You can bring your camera and they will take charge in taking photos without extra charge. 

People may think that parasailing is extreme but when you actually do it and feel the adrenaline rush through your body as you are being released high into the sky.. you will feel one with nature. It is actually a relaxing moment as you see everything from up there. We were up in the air for 15 minutes and it was worth the experience.

    and ωithout a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm ѵery happy that I came aсross thiѕ in my hunt foг somеthing сoncerning this.
