- ABOUT THE SPOT
Parasailing in Lake Havasu, Lake Havasu City, Arizona USA
The 45 mi (72.42 km) long lake’s capacity is 648000 ac/2622 km² on a very low desert elevation of 482 ft (146.91 m). The concrete dam that makes a glorious arch was built between 1934 and 1938 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation.
There are two aqueducts that need to be filled with water and that is exactly the lake’s primary purpose. Except from that purpose the lake is also available for fun and especially parasailing.
You don’t need to have any special skills or be trained in order to have fun parasailing over the magnificent Lake. The experienced crew members will assist you to get into a flight harness. Then you will slowly start ascending until you reach about 500 ft (152.40 m) above the lake.
The tour lasts 8 – 10 minutes and at the end you will enjoy a gentle landing, as the crew guides you back to the boat. You can take in the breathtaking views alone or with a friend flying side by side. Nearby schools and shops will help you with everything you need.
