Hilton Head Island, on average, receives over 2.67 million visitors to the Island on an annual basis. And most of those are return visitors with high hopes and higher expectations about the specifics of their Hilton Head vacations. These are the people that have been here before; the ones that know what fun the island can offer.
However, few flock outside of their comfort zones when they venture to Hilton Head Island, meaning that what could be the best of their vacations are often missed. Extreme water sports, for example, are totally in on the island, and locals and guests alike are welcome to dive right into the adrenaline rush of things like parasailing and paddle boarding.
Regardless of your plans on Hilton Head Island, guests are sure to have fun—but it could be twice as much fun to step outside the usual comfort zones. While shopping and dining are absolute must-do experiences, many of which are unique to the island, there is quite a bit of fun to be had elsewhere. Island Head Watersports, for instance, would be an awesome plunge from the norm.
Parasailing Offers a Unique Beautiful View and Perspective of Hilton Head
Parasailing is a relatively popular water and air sport, but few actually know what it is. By definition, parasailing is when you “glide through the air wearing an open parachute while being towed by a motorboat.” The definition either sounds dull or scary, depending on your comfort zones, but Island Head Watersports shucks the definition in favor of their own defining experience.
When you parasail over Hilton Head Island, you get panoramic views of the bays and seashores, while smoothly, securely floating mid-air behind a steady, secure, expert-driven boat. You get a whole new, beautiful perspective of the island, while experiencing something that you can feel good about and remember for years to come.
Safe? Secure? Fun for Entire Families? You Betcha!
Understandably, most people that want to add parasailing to their Hilton Head Island vacation are nervous. Island Head Watersports understands and strives to put their passengers at ease. You can opt to shell out a little extra for a private experience for you and your loved ones. Or, go with a random group of varied ages, from 6 to 12 people. Either way, your departure begins with a speedy boat ride from the marina to the parasail zone in Calibogue Sound.
From there, you and your fellow passengers will take turns learning how to parasail, and then doing just that. You will soar at 500-feet in the air, with wow-worthy views of Hilton Head Island. You’ll see beautiful sea creatures and native wildlife, like bottlenose dolphins, dozens of birds, and sea turtles—and the wind in your hair feels amazing.
The crew follows strict guidelines and safety procedures, all designed to make you feel safe, secure, and at ease. Ergo, this is an experience that everyone should partake in.
