Goa’s long and beautiful coastline looks even more stunning when watched from the sky. Parasailing is one such sport which gives you the chance of flying freely in the air and catch the splendor of the sea at its very best. Also known as Para ascending, the sport requires a parachute and a boat.
Parasailing is a sport where a rope of about 300 feet long is attached to a parachute harness while the other end is tied to a speedboat. As the boat gains momentum, the parachute rises up into the air, taking the person attached along with it. Parasailing offers you the experience of hanging between the clear blue skies and the shimmering waters.
Both government and private organizations have set up a number of parasailing institutes along the beaches that not only offer the experience of a lifetime at extremely affordable prices but also provide training courses for novices.
Best Season for Parasailing in Goa
The most recommended time to enjoy parasailing in Goa is between the months of October and April when the skies remain clear and sunny while the sea is also calm and serene. A few training schools located near the beaches offer crash courses as well as the equipment required.
Some of the beaches where you can enjoy the thrilling sport of parasailing include the Anjuna Beach, Candolim Beach, Dona Paula Beach, Baga Beach and Majorda Beach. There are also a few training centres that offer short term training courses in parasailing.
