Among the outdoor activities on offer in Biscarrosse, parasailing is a great way to have fun and see the city from a different perspective at the same time.

You will literally be flying over the water, hanging on a sail which will allow you to glide and have a magnificent overview of the coastline.
What is parasailing?
It is a sub-discipline of sport parachuting. Parasailing consists of climbing in the air while hanging on a sail similar to that of a parachute. Takeoff takes place from the ground or a body of water, where the passenger is towed quickly. This aerial activity offers the possibility of gliding, without launching into the void. In fact, the parasailing has similarities to hang gliding, except that the movement here is driven by the towing vehicle. Its sail can have the shape of current parachutes with a concave or hemispherical straight wing. To be able to take off, the start is made by running then the power of the boat or the towing vehicle takes over. Then the air inflates the sail to a certain overhanging height.
Parasailing at Lake Biscarrosse
To experience unique aerial sensations, nothing like the practice of parasailing at Lake Biscarrosse. It is an opportunity to admire a splendid panorama several meters high, the lake under your feet and the feeling of touching the sky, with the forest in the distance. The gentle take-off takes place alone or with others, aboard a boat, in order to tow the sail easily. The take-off and dry landing modes are completely safe. You will obviously be supervised by a passionate and qualified team to guarantee the success of your first parasailing experience. Note that it is practiced from the age of 4 years. People with reduced mobility can also practice it and the monitors come to pick them up directly at the port.
