The Thrill of Extreme Water Sports on Your Family Caribbean Holiday

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

Soar high above the water or carve through the waves when you take your adrenaline-loving family on a Caribbean holiday

The flawless blue water and the bright Caribbean sun are enough to make any island visitor run straight to the beach upon arrival. Well, for an adventurous family on a Caribbean holiday, once you hit the beach you'll want to start tackling the thrills that will shoot the butterflies to your stomach and your heart pumping straight out of your chest, right away. That's when you start booking some extreme water sports for your trip.

Take flight or hang ten on your Caribbean holiday Two of the most popular and most soul-stimulating water sports in the Caribbean are windsurfing and parasailing. Millions of visitors arrive on the many islands of the Caribbean ready to attack these activities and there's an industry filled with professional instructors, mapped out locations, and all the equipment rentals anyone can imagine, waiting to give those visitors the experience of a lifetime.

An irresistible environment for windsurfing The Caribbean region draws in windsurfers from all around the world thanks to its fabulous trade winds. Once you're out in the water a bit, there's always a steady current of wind that's perfect for toting around the bays and shores of the Caribbean Islands, cutting through the water.

Some of the best windsurfing in the area is found in the Dominican Republic at Cabarete Beach, center for surfing triathlons including wind, kite and board surfing. Here, you'll be able to rent, store, and purchase any equipment you need or have, as well as take any level of lesson from the vast array of windsurfing centers in the area. Picking up the windsurfing can be difficult at first, even compared to other extreme sports, but once you get it down there are oceans of fun and excitement to be had in the water!

Catch an island view tethered to a racing speed boat Okay, parasailing isn't exactly a "sport," but it is extreme! Nothing gives you such a euphoric feeling while simultaneously sending your heart into a racing rage of adrenaline quite like parasailing high above the Caribbean Sea. You can catch a ride on a parasailing excursion on pretty much any island in the Caribbean, but one of the most popular destinations for the adventure is St. Thomas.Once you're out to sea and strapped into your parasailing harnesses, you'll embark directly from the back of the boat (and come back the same way, without having to be dragged in the water). From there, you'll rise up to 450 feet above the sea. On a clear day, you can see the entire island of St. Thomas from your unique perspective, as well as a few of the neighboring islands such as St. John and St. Croix. You can find parasailing companies and most beach hotels and resorts in St. Thomas. Prices range from $25 - $85.

When your family loves excitement a Caribbean holiday will refresh their spirit Taking your family on a Caribbean holiday is packed with opportunities to soar through the skies - above the water, land, or rainforests - and splash in the waters. For the family armed with enthusiasm for adventure, Caribbean water sports are sure to satisfy your appetite.
