Monopolize Okinawa’s Nature – 5 Recommended Air Activities
For those who wish to enjoy Okinawa’s nature all at once, we recommend trying an air sport instead of going to the beach or the mountains.
Parasailing is an air sport where you glide through the air wearing an open parachute while being towed by a motorboat. Two to three people can experience this activity at once, so it is highly recommended for families and couples who want to enjoy the ride together.
On the other hand, powered paragliding is an air sport where the pilot wears a motor on their back to take off instead of being pulled by a motorboat.
It will be a tandem flight with an experienced pilot, so you will definitely be able to enjoy Okinawa’s sky without worrying. You might be lucky enough to see sea turtles and stingrays, so make sure to bring your camera.
If you want to enjoy Okinawa’s sky from a higher altitude, riding on a helicopter might be the option for you. There are different flight routes, so you might be able to fly over different islands or even U.S. military bases depending on your choice.
Also, it is possible to fly to and from your hotel if you charter a helicopter.
These are experiences that will leave you with memories you’ll treasure for the rest of your life.
