Parasailing versus paragliding –
While parasailing is a recreational kiting sports activity which involves less risk, paragliding is a far riskier sport. In parasailing, you will be towed by a vehicle and will just be flying with the help of a parachute, but will all the less be connected to the vehicle through a strap and rope. In paragliding, you will be set free in a farther altitude to fall to the earth with the help of a parachute. Paragliding is done from longer heights and involve very experienced trainers and coaches. To do a paragliding, you must have profuse knowledge about it and should be trained prior to the activity. This is not the case in parasailing. You will not need any training or coaching regarding the activity. You can go on the day of the adventure without any fear and take part in the parasailing.
