what to expect
How does it work? We can take up to 12 passengers at a time on all three of our custom built boats. Our friendly, experienced crew will assist you throughout your trip. One at a time the crew will assist you in securing your life vest and harness on the pontoon before boarding the parasailing boat. Then, as the boat leaves Vilamoura Marina the crew will instruct you on the hand signals and take off and landing positions . Once out Vilamoura Marina and in the open sea and they have launched the chute you will be invited in a specific order to walk to the back of the boat so they can clip you on to the triplizer bar. You will sail away without ever touching the water. After soaring high in the sky they will lower you for a dip into the ocean for some complimentary sea water prior to being brought back down to the boat. Lift your legs and land on your feet from the same spot you took off from! Check Out This Video!
How long is the ride? Each flight is about 8 – 10 minutes of air time. Most trips are about an hour to an hour and half , depending on how many others are on the boat with you.
Can we fly together? Absolutely! In fact, we think it’s best to share in the spectacular views with someone by your side. We fly our guests either tandem or triple.
