What happens if the boat stops suddenly?
Our vessels and equipment are inspected daily and they arekept to very specific mechanical standards. In the unlikely event of amechanical malfunction, the participants are gently lowered into thewater (lifejackets are mandatory) and retrieved by another vessel in ourfleet immediately. Again, you are never in any danger, the absoluteworst case scenario is that you get the “special dip”!
What happens if the line breaks?
It is veryuncommon for the line to break, but if it does, you are never in anydanger. If the line should break, the parachute will slowly and gentlybring the parasailers to the water.
