Parasailing in Kendwa

Category Zanzibar Fun
Duration days -1 nights


Parasailing in Kendwa offers you a breathtaking bird's eye view of the beautiful aqua-marine water and the beautiful Kendwa beach. This is a must-do activity for your time in Zanzibar, to experience this unique view mixed with an adrenaline rush like no other.
The parasailing session will begin with a short safety briefing and then you will be taken by boat out into the water ready for your launch. Another safety check will be done with the harness/parachute before your launch and to check that you are ready. The boat driver will gradually accelerate the boat and you will just relax into the harness as you slowly lift off into the air. You will then be towed behind the boat as you fly higher and gain the most spectacular view of the water below. No steering is necessary as the sail follows the course of the boat, so all you have to do is enjoy the exhilarating ride!
