Sail through the sky
This high-flying thrill gives you the best panoramic views of Bermuda from 300 feet in the air. Based in Dockyard, the western tip of Bermuda, this aerial trip showcases Bermuda’s natural beaches, historical forts, and coastlines stretching down to the east end of the island. Step onboard the “Thrill Seeker”, K.S Watersports’ powerful winch-boat, which allows you to take off and land without getting wet. However, on your way back down to sea level you can request to have your feet dipped into the water, adding excitement to the adventure. Best of all, no experience is required as their professional crew assures that you will be perfectly safe. You will have a blast on this parasailing escapade. kswatersports.com
