is a wonderful place to enjoy fun in the warm, turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean. Rent a jet ski and explore the coastline, ride the wake behind a wakeboarding boat, kitesurfing, Waterskiing, or take a parasail ride and get a bird's eye view of the whole island from 300 feet in the air! You can take a kayak to the reef or Chetumal Bay, or just kayak the area around the island. More and more folks are paddleboarding, even some fishermen!
Soar above the turquoise blue waters of Ambergris Caye enjoying breathtaking bird's eye views of this
island paradise, an adventure designed for the whole family! Make your Ambergris
Caye holiday one to remember forever! Kids and Adults will have the time of their lives as the parasailing boat glides you past amazing panoramic sights of the island that can
only be seen from the air. Fly solo or with another friend or family member. As you parasail, you may even
spot dolphins playing in the surf, sea turtles swimming below or colorful tropical birds flying past.
Parasailing is a recreational kiting activity where you are towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that reminds one of a parachute, known as a parasail wing. The harness attaches the rider(s) to the parasail, which is connected to the boat by the tow rope. The boat then takes off, carrying the parasail and person into the air. The boat is powerful enough so that two or three people can parasail behind it at the same time. The rider has little or no control over the parachute and the activity is primarily a fun ride with an awesome view. Ride in the air lasts 15 minutes, boat ride lasts 45-60 minutes depending on number of people.
With gentle dry takeoffs and landings from the elevated platform at the rear of the boat, your parasailing adventure is like walking on air. As the towline is reeled out from a hydraulic winch, you'll
begin to see the entire island with an unbelievable view of the second longest coral reef in the world! Float
gently on the warm tropical breezes as you take in the panoramic vistas, with Caye Calker to the south and
dozens of tiny unexplored islands to the east. You can choose to chill out and just enjoy the view or, for the
more adventurous, you can take the "free fall" option where the captain slows the boat and lets your
parachute float down until your toes touch the water!

A great way to explore the island and the beautiful Caribbean waters surrounding it is on your own jet ski! There are rentals starting at just 30 minutes and some provide complimentary resort pick-up and drop-off! Belize is home to more than 200 tropical cayes—many of them uninhabited and unexplored. And if you'd like more of an adventure, there are guided jetski tours that take you exploring for hours.
One of the best ways to explore the island is by kayak! Paddle out to the reef and tie up to a buoy for some snorkeling, or go explore the dozens of uninhabited islands in Chetumal Bay.
Stand up paddle surfing and stand up paddle boarding are offshoots of surfing that originated in Hawaii. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider sits until a wave comes, stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water. Variations include flat water paddling for outdoor recreation, fitness, or sightseeing, paddle board yoga and even fishing.
Carve up the water and ride the wake behind a wakeboarding boat. Professional instructors make wakeboarding & waterskiing fun and easy to learn, regardless of your skill level. There are trips designed for experienced riders as well as newbies. The calm waters behind the reef are the perfect place to skim over the warm Caribbean! (On windy days with rougher seas, sessions will take place on the Western side of the island in the Beautiful waters of Chetumal Bay).
