Parasailing and Jet Skiing – Tanjung Benoa, Bali – Indonesia



It all happens by accident as do most things on holidays, because who really needs to make plans.

One moment you are walking the beaches of Tanjung Benoa Bali, then next moment you are talking to a kind local man who is trying to make a buck and he is trying to organise some water activities on the gorgeous, yet active Bay in Bali – Indonesia.

You finally give in to their persuasive powers, because the prices are ridiculously cheap and after negotiating a better price and paying some dollars for the events on Tanjung Benoa Beach (still a heck of a lot cheaper than what you will find in Australia), it’s time to hit the water have endure some action on the crazy beach.

The Process when wanting to partake in Tanjung Benoa Watersport

The next bit for me really is a blur upon agreeing to their prices, again it’s great. You pay at the counter, then you are rushed immediately to the boat that will take you to the parasailing. No boring bits and no waiting around, it’s bloody awesome I tell you.

It is that easy when it comes to the many companies who runs the Dive and Water sports in Tanjung Benoa, they want to entertain their client and make your Bali travel experience all the worth while and get you having fun immediately.

Adventure Parasailing at great heights to begin the Bali Water sports

Transferring from one boat to another, there is a little bit of a wait as others have their turn in front of you, but no more than 20 minutes which any person in a hurry can live with, not that I was in a hurry of course. Being the last to go meant that I got to look at their terrified faces before being hoisted into the sky brings a smug smile to myself.

It’s my turn to go and sorry, there is no camera for the gorgeous view I am hit with upon rising high into the almost clear sky, if only I had a go-pro at the time. There are a few clouds about, but it doesn’t hurt the moment. The view is breathtaking and the experience is more than worth it, especially for cost I paid, while you relax sky high and take it all in. It’s all over in about ten minutes, too quick, I could have spent a heck of a lot longer taking in the surrounds of Benoa Bali.

Jet Skiing The Bay on the busy beaches

Time is never wasted on Tanjung Benoa. As soon as I am off the boat for the parasailing, I am on the jet skis. This amazing experience raises the hair a little more because the Tanjung Benoa beach is always crowded with boats and other jet skis everywhere you look, at times you wonder if this is safe, you only hope it is I suppose.

But you are not alone the whole time. An experience instructor is with you and since I have zero experience on the jet ski. yes, I am in my thirties and never gone jet skiing, the instructor negotiates the busy beach area until I am virtually isolated in the ocean alone. Then it’s my turn and its full throttle on my own as I negotiate the swells of the ocean and enjoying every moment of the first experience. The adrenaline of the whole thing is such rush, I am like a kid on Christmas day, the smile can’t go away.

Checking it off the bucket list

Maybe it’s weird for a man well in his thirties to get excited over parasailing and jet skiing, yet I’ll do it anyway. Why not, both water sports experiences were both a first for myself. So please forgive the excitement I am showing. Because at the end of the day, I’m just glad I am able to tick them off the list. Maybe next is skydiving and conquer the fear of heights.


What else goes on in the Tanjung Benoa Beach

There is more to life in Tanjung Benoa Bali than parasailing and jet-skis, naturally, of course there is snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming, boat tours to a variety of awesome Bali attractions, Banana boat rides, the awesome flyboard and many more beach activities for the tourist to select from.

One guarantee is, you’ll have fun and plenty of it.


Don’t forget your travel Insurance before any beach activities

A last reminder for you travellers before you hit the Bali beaches, make sure you have already purchased travel insurance before entertaining the thought of any extreme activities. It would be a real shame if anything were to go wrong and you were jot covered.

So spend a few dollars, in the rare case the worst possible situation happens to you and you don’t have to fork out thousands on medical bills. In that instance, with any kind of travel insurance you can enjoy your time in Tanjung Benoa Bali with a few fears erased.
