I Believe I Can Fly!

This post is about my first ever parasailing experience in Boracay last April 2013. The first time I was in Boracay, 2 years ago, we did Island Hopping, Banana Boat riding and Helmet Diving. Back then when I saw people flying up in the sky, it never crossed my mind to try it because I though it will be too expensive but when I returned to Boracay this year, parasailing is the only activity on my list that I wanted to try! And I'm so glad I tried it because it was one of the best activity I ever had in my life! :)

It was a good thing my best friend was up for it too, so early in the morning during our second day in Boracay we immediately walked from our hotel, Orinda Beach resort in Diniwid Beach ahead of station 1 and looked for tour guides who offer various activities. Upon walking we saw a kuya who offered us parasailing activity for 800 pesos only! So we immediately grabbed it and the next thing we knew we were flying up in the sky overlooking the beautiful Boracay beach and it was just truly awesome!

Here are some pictures we had during our sky adventure! :)))

This is where we availed our parasailing activity. Diamond Water Edge Resort. They also offer other activities at lower prices, you just really have to know how to negotiate and look for tourist guides who do not over price the activities.

Our first boat ride going to their floating station where the jet skis are located. 
This is the waiting station, we thought we're going to go parasailing from here but the kuya told us that we're just waiting for another boat to bring us to our final destination. 


 Nevertheless, we took photos of the jet skis! haha next time I will ride a jet ski!

Our second speed boat, it was really fast and kind of jumping on the water! This speed boat brought us to
 other big boat where our parasailing activity is waiting.
We never thought that our final boat will look this big and comfy! It was really worth it because since we were so early, I guess we're their first customer that day, we  kind of owned the big boat because there were no other guests waiting that time. 

After fastening us to our life vests and locking us to the equipment, we sat at the edge of the boat, the boat roared to life and behold, we were being lifted from our sits, slowly at first then higher, higher, higher!!!

So Happy! We were 300 feet above water... too bad I do not have a handy cam with me, the view up there is truly wonderful, it was very serene & peaceful. We could sleep up there! So that's what its like to be a bird. :)
After 15 minutes, our flight has ended... See the big smiles we have on our faces? :)
And that was the end of our parasailing experience. On our way back to the beach, we just rode 1 speed boat and my best friend was able to drive it! It was really worth it, we got more than what we paid for. If you haven't done this before, I really recommend this activity. Great value!
