Goa is blessed with a long coastline and provides ample opportunities for enjoying various kinds of water sports. Parasailing is one of them. It provides the right mix of adventure and entertainment. Parasailing is a sport where the para sailor flies up in the sky with a parachute but the control remains in the hands of the boat below. A rope about 200 feet long remains attached to the parasail and to a speed boat on the other end. As the boat catches speed, the para sailor is lifted up into the air. The view from the top is breathtaking.
