There are a lot of activities that you can do in Boracay Island and you may want to include parasailing in your list. For someone who has never tried parasailing in Boracay, you may think its an extreme thing to do and for someone who's afraid of heights this might be the way to get rid of it or just forget trying this, you might think this would be your end. kidding!

Parasailing is a recreational activity where a person is towed behind a boat, while attached in a special designed parachute. The boat then drives off, carrying the parascender into the air. Two to three person can parasail at the same time, with a harness attached on you by the tow rope connected to the boat. This is pretty much a safer ride.

If your afraid and don't have the strength and courage to do it, just don't do it. You might just end up wasting your money, beside you can still try other activities that suits you like banana boat, reef walking, flyfish and others.

This activity is a fun ride and you can get a good view above while enjoying the scenery and the blowing wind. You can bring your camera to get a shot of Boracay Island above just hold on tight with your camera. Price range in parasailing starts at php1500 more or less per person for 15minutes ride, price is very much negotiable. It depends on the number of person joining you and it varies in season. Parasailing is mostly available for transaction from station 1 to station 3 or you may approach the front desk of the resort your staying for help. Happy Parasailing! :)
