Hello, I really don't know what to ask for, but my friend mentioned this, so I thought I would ask.
It has something to do with person riding in a seat, and being pulled along by ropes, or sliding along a cable way up in the air. They say the "sight" you see/taking pictures, is just out of the world.
Does anyone know what I am talking about or how we go about finding out who does this?
This sounds like Parasailing. Parasailing is where a boat pulls you. You sit in a seat, suspended by a huge parasail (chute). As the boat takes off and goes faster, the parasail fills with air and starts to lift you up off the ground. It is great fun, and a wonderful photo opportunity. I have seen parasailing listed in the shore excursions on the RCCL website, for $75, if memory serves me correct. That is very expensive, but at least you definately get a spot resevered for you. You can more than likely get a cheaper ride, if you just show up, but then you assume they have availability for you. In Mazatlan, I was able to walk up and get a ride for $25, after bargaining with them. Maybe google the ports you are going to, for parasailing companys, to see if you can book on line. Good luck.

If you go up just yourself, where you get in the seat on land, while the boat waits off in the water, it should only take about 15 minutes. From lift off to drop off. Sometimes, they load a boat up with a bunch of people, and they launch you from the boat, from a platform, out in open water. The platform in on the boat, so you never get wet. The platform water launch takes much longer, because you are all waiting for each other to finish, before you go back to shore. Hope this helps, Lil' Lori
Well, now that you mention it, it does sound like a zipline tour. I love to parasail, so when you described it, I immediately thought of parasailing. Oh well, now everyone who did not know what parasailing is, now knows. My husband and stepson ziplined in jamaica. They loved it. I didn't want to, too scary for me. I'll go a few hundred feet above the ocean, being pulled by a boat. But, the thought of swinging through trees, or walking over suspension bridges makes me cringe. Enjoy whatever you do. Lil' Lori
Well now that you sort of described what Ziplining is, I think that is what it was. I don't know if I would want to do that also. I guess we'll have to ask a LOT of questions before we decide to take the "plunge."
