ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- No longer do you have to wonder and gaze up in amazement at just how awesome it would be to fly and be a bird, albeit for ten minutes in the Virgin Islands. Now you can, with the hottest and most talked about adventure-Parasailing BVI, brought to you by Paradize Water Sports.

But just what is “parasailing?” Miriam-Webster would define it as “the recreational sport of soaring in a parachute while being towed usually by a motorboat,” and Owner of Paradize Water Sports- Clyde D. Hodge would describe it as being a bird for a little while. “You get to have a birds’ eye view of the Virgin Islands, everything the birds see, you see,” he said.

The aim is to provide a new fun-filled sport for adventure seekers of both locals and tourists alike, with a special reduced price for locals operating from two hubs: the popular Cane Garden Bay and also from Road Town.

New feature to tourism offering

According to Mr Hodge, the idea was nipping at his heels for more than 10 years before he finally gave in and took the huge leap and brought the new pleasure to the territory. He has over twenty-five (25) years in the tourism sector and, with his well-tailored customer service experience, coupled with his deep urge to add this new feature to the many tourism offerings in the Virgin Islands (UK), the sport became official in July 2016.

So far, he has been receiving tremendous positive reviews and is all about taking customers to higher heights and a new kind of fun.

Why do you have to only experience the Virgin Islands behind a glass when travelling, when you have the option of making it a family, friends or colleagues affair and feel the warm breeze caressing your skin as you glide effortlessly through the air while at the same time taking in the utterly magnificent landscape and water in a thousand shades of blue that the territory boasts?

Parasailing is the hottest and wildest and truly one of a kind experience that you simply must try! Why not try it with Paradize Water Sports?

Safety a top priority

Of course being up to 800 feet in the air must be a bit scary if anything goes wrong, but Mr Hodge has sought to cast all fears aside, as he informed that safety is high on their agenda with stringent measures in place to ensure that you are safe while having fun. Up to six persons can be accommodated on the boat at any given time and three can fly simultaneously.

It is parasailing time VI! Get on board and taste the experience, feel the adrenaline rush as you are elevated to new heights! If you still require any more information or you want to book your spot, give Mr Hodge a call at #1284-442-4440 or parasailingbvi@gmail.com or follow them on Facebook at Paradize Sports BVI!

    with the telephone and facebook this is a free advertisement, something I would think is not considered appropriate on the face.
    At least it is a local business, at least it keeps people from doing stupid things to the land, and it is temporary, pretty to watch, and maybe somewhat quiet? Road Town may be a congested place to do it.
    And of course, Obama did it which is huge publicity. Good luck and stay safe.

      Obama didn't do this, he did kite surfing which is something different.
