Will be going to Labadee in April. Has anyone done the parasailing there? Just wanted to check to see if it was a good place to do it, and if you tender to the island and then go to your excursion from there.

NO NO NO.... Do the Dragon Flight Line!! LOL...

We did the zipline, its like 2500 feet down the side of a mountain and over the water.. I think you should be able to do both there..

you do tender and they have boats to bring you in. it was a great stop.. in my opinion better than st. maarten, thought i lived in st thomas for 6 months, so islands are islands to me. Bon Voyage.

My daughter did parasailing at Labadee. We felt better about it than other ports: RCCL employees run the excursion and we felt it might be a bit safer than some random guy on the beach recruiting customers. You go on a double side by side set up with someone else. You tender to the island and then go out in their parasail boat. She enjoyed it.

You should get a good idea of what parasailing in Labadee is like if you go HERE.

Would love to try the zipline in Labadee?

Is this just for the young who have lots of strength or can the young at heart do it?

I am fifty something.

There were peeps of all ages on the tour we did.. They have several times a day to pick from. You dont have to be strong at all, if you have shoulder problems dont do it.. but thats it.

I did the parasail in Labadee in April 08. This was my first time and I have no complaints.
