What is Parasailing?
Parasailing is a popular water activity that involves a speedboat pulling a parasail (Parasail Wing) that looks like a parachute while one to three people are attached to the Parasail Wing on a seating position.

Now you have an idea of how exciting it is or frightening depends on how you look at it, but you might want to know how high Parasailing goes in Boracay?
How high do parasails go Boracay
The highest it can go is about 500 vertical feet. It might not sound so high, but once you’re up there, it will feel as if its 30 stories high.
Everything gets so small, and you can view the whole stretch of Boracay island.
It’s also surprisingly peaceful and quiet up there that you can’t even hear the noise from the speedboat.
My tip is to schedule your Parasailing around late afternoon from 5 pm to 6 pm so you can also witness the breathtaking sunset of Boracay while Parasailing.

You can bring a selfie stick and take pictures of your companion’s frightened face, which is the fun part!
Although some restrictions may apply depending on the weight of passengers and the weather, ultimately, it’s the crew’s decision.
My girlfriend and I were expecting an adrenaline rush kind of ride, but instead, it was incredibly peaceful and calming. We felt we were floating through the air as our legs left dangling while we sat on our harnesses.
The views were spectacular, and you can see the entire 7km stretch of White Beach in Boracay.
