Firstly we can say that the parasailing Tenerife basically consists of a parachute connected by a long rope to a boat; so as this moves forward you lift in the air reaching maximum 30 meters of height depending on weather conditions (have a look at the video above); flying over the ocean you can enjoy a fantastic view of the coast and the mountains including the peak of Mount Teide.
Before starting we explain you basic safety rules to follow during the parasailing Tenerife; then we get on board of the speedboat and we leave the harbour; when we are about 200 meters from the shore we open the parachute and let you fly.
Wind plays a big role and when is too strong it makes things difficult; luckily the areas of Las Americas and Los Cristianos are protected from the trade winds which blow on Canary Islands; that is because of the 2000 meters high mountains in the center of Tenerife; this means that the area is particularly good for the parasailing Tenerife and air sports in general.
The experience lasts about 30 minutes of which 10 in the air; you have the choice to land on the take-off platform or to refresh yourself in the cool water of the Atlantic Ocean.
For the parasailing Tenerife children have to be at least 6 years old and must be accompanied by an adult. The sum of the weights of the people flying should not exceed 250 kg. However, the weather conditions also affect, the stronger the wind the more weight the parachute can bear. With the right conditions it is therefore possible for two adults and a child to fly together.
