If you think the mountainous backdrop of Lake Tahoe looks stunning from the ground, just wait until you glimpse it from 500–800 feet above sea level. And that's just what you'll be able to do with a visit to California Parasail, which specializes in sending up to three participants at a time skyward using nothing but the power of wind (and boat propulsion). Once that parachute lifts off as the boat it's connected to punches the motor, guests will be treated to an experience that's as thrilling as it is scenic. They'll glide into the air at up to 10mph, reveling in the views of the glassy waters below and the ruggedly beautiful terrain that surrounds them. And parasailers don't need to worry about getting wet, either—all takeoffs and landings happen right from the back of the boat, meaning nobody will get soaked at any point during the airborne adventure.
