Luxury Vacations: If you are looking for a quick escape from the city this summer, then head down to Cape Cod and book a ride aboard Cape Cod Parasail. The only Coast Guard inspected parasail boat on Cape Cod, this might be the most fun you will have all summer and it's guaranteed! The owners here are so sure you will have an amazing time that if you don't, you won't have to pay for your ride.
You can take off and land directly from the boat so you don't get wet but for those thrill-seekers, be sure to request a dip in the water. You won't get a better view of the Cape Cod coastline than from an aerial view. We were amazed to discover how incredibly peaceful and quiet it is way up in the clouds. Even though the young driver was cranking the tunes on the boat, we couldn't hear anything but pure silence high above the ocean.
Start out with a peaceful boat ride from Dennis to the middle of the harbor. The two attendants on board help each rider get harnessed into the parachute before taking off. Once you are ready, they slowly reel you out and you will soar seemingly as high as the clouds for the most amazing ride of your life! When it comes time to land, they reel you in and if you opt for a "toe dip," they will let you have a quick dip before sending you up one more time before your time is up. There were three other couples the day we went for the hour-long tour so we were all excited, albeit somewhat anxious about trying this out but everyone walked away with a huge grin and a memory that will last a lifetime. You do not have to know how to swim or have any experience to parasail to take your first trip.
Reservations are definitely recommended, as this is one of more popular Cape adventures, but they are not required. Be sure to request the photo package of 30 digital pictures, which is just $40 and includes a 2G SD card that you can add more pictures to. For more information, visit www.capecodparasail.com.
