Parasailing in Bermuda

 
It can't be more satisfying than seeing Bermuda's turquoise waters, beautiful pink sandy beaches, the coastline, secluded reefs and other great attractions from the sky. One way to experience this is through parasailing. There are several parasail operators who run their operations both from the Dockyard in Sandys and St. George's water areas. 
 
Some have sit down type chairs and others with secured harness type arrangements. You won't even touch the waters unless you request for a dip while landing. They will launch you from the boat and retrieve you back into the boat. The boat usually takes several persons together and you will need to wait for your turn. While the total time taken can be between 60 to 90 minutes depending on the group size, the time spent flying would be about 10 minutes per person.

Bermuda Parasailing 
 
Parasailing in Bermuda is perfect for families and children. You don't require any experience or training. All the operators have experienced guides who control the entire operation. Some of them also allow two persons to parasail together depending on the total weight and the wind conditions. You can take waterproof cameras with you and secure them around your neck. A picture of Bermuda from high above can be worth a million. 
 
If your family members or friends are parsailing and you like to only watch them from the boat, you can also do that. On request and if there are vacancies, the operators also let you join them and watch the exciting parasailing activities from the boat.

Hi, I am from pennsylvannia, U.S.A. My family and I are coming to Bermuda on a cruise in may 2012.We are leaving new york 5/13/12 and are expected to dock at the royal naval yard. A few years ago I was there and went parasailing I don't remember exactly where we were but I would love to do it again with my daughters now that they are older and I would like to know if you still do the parasailing, and if so can you send me some info on the locations and prices... Thank You
