What is Parasailing?

Parasailing is a kite-styled activity where you, and usually up to two others, are towed by a speeding boat. As the boat speeds, a kite-styled parachute that you are attached to will slowly lift itself, and you, into the air. During this whole process, you are harnessed and both yourself and the parachute is tethered to the boat. Both of these are done for your safety!
