parasailing

 

Parasailing is a big attraction in Pattaya, Koh Samui and in Phuket. Locations like Jomtien Beach in Pattaya, along Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui and along Patong Beach in Phuket are most popular.

With the general height limit of Parasailing in Australia set at 100 metres, the height of 150 - 200 metres in Thailand makes it very exciting but also a little more dangerous.

Many parasailing companies have now been forced to setup offshore pontoon structures to take-off from. This was due to the increasing amount of accidents near the shoreline. Each ride usually includes a quick rise into the air, slow drop into the water for a quick dunk, then another rise up, then the landing. Take care when you take off and keep your legs up until you clear of the pontoon.

Normal rates are around 500 Baht per ride, or 300 Baht if part of a day tour. Many tour companies stop at these pontoons for about half an hour to get kick backs for their passages that take up the optional ride.
