Parasailing with Naam, Langkawi, Malaysai
Jalan Tanjung Rhu
Kedah Darul Aman
(Situated next to Four Seasons Resort Langkawi)
In Langkawi, there are plenty of sea sports to choose from and one of them which we did was Parasailing! The bride and groom managed to negotiate for a discounted rate from Naam who is reputed for their modern technology, safety measures and fully insured package for their participants. They made used of a custom made vessel specifically designed for the parasailer’s comfort. It is really fun as the vessel will also play upbeat music on their audio system. It is a pricey activity as we paid around RM 170 – 190 per pax for a short 10 mins time in the air but it’s really safe and stable. The most exciting part is when we ascend, there after it was really stable and we thoroughly enjoyed the view up above!
Upon descending, we can also opt for three levels of dipping in the sea! Level 1: Ankle Dip, Level 2: Knee Dip and Level 3: Neck Dip! Haha. Our group opted for Knee Dip but our dear friends on the vessel requested for Ankle deep for us! Thankfully for them, as the splashes soaked up our bottoms!
There are many branches and we went to the one above.
Less talking and here are the pictures!
Here’s us looking silly in our life jacket walking towards the speedboat which will bring us to the vessel!
Here’s us excited about the adventure!
On your mark, get set go! We were seated comfortable on the vessel and all we had to do is hang in there while the crew slowly release us into the air! I’ve heard of horror story where people have to run on the beach or deck while waiting for the speedboat to move and drag you along! OMG! But for Naam, it was really comfortable and safe. We just need to make sure we don’t grab on to any carabiner which may loosen it!
I’m so glad I brought my phone along in a waterproof case with lanyard! Haha. Weee!
That’s us having our Ankle Dip!
While waiting for the rest to fly up there, we managed to catch a beautiful sunset!
The bride and groom went into the water and we thought they being a sporty couple opted for Level 3: Neck Dip! We were all eager laughing and taking pictures of them! When they returned onboard, the groom jokingly asked if we requested for Level 3 dip, and only then did we realized it was because the vessel stalled and they got a unrequested mega dip! In the end, the couple asked for full refund for them and on top of that, Naam even offered them a free jet ski ride for them!
The bride is soaked throughout. Look at these breathtaking pictures taken by our new friend Lucia on our way back to the car after parasailing!
