We booked this parasailing excursion on the resort with travelocity because they offered a free ride back to the airport. It was actually Olympus but travelocity was one of the companies they represented.
Once booked it was a short walk down the beach or front of our hotel (Riu Palace Peninsula) to Playa Tortugas. I have done this type of excursion before but this time I was very scared to do so.
There was a small boat that took us out the the bigger boat to do parasailing. Once there we swiftly put on our harness and life jackets. I advised one of the guys I was scared but we were given instructions and lifted off the boat too quick for me to change my mind. Ha Ha. Once up there the wind was blowing so hard and I was scared I won't lie. I did smile for the camera they had on board but was up in the air I was crying to my husband. I noticed a little camera on the rope and said out loud as we returned to the boat. "I hope this wasn't recorded." And of course it was and i was so very embarrassed. But I kept the memories for a whole lot of money ($35) just to be put on a DVD. Other than that the pictures taken were good and I enjoyed them.
