Get a Bird’s Eye View on a Hilton Head Parasailing Adventure
Hilton Head Island looks great from any angle. See the coast around Harbour Town in a completely different way as you soar high above, joining the many birds who fly through these skies and make their homes in the various habitats of the island. Feel the thrill of becoming air-born on a Hilton Head Parasailing Adventure you will never forget and enjoy the unparalleled views of Hilton Head Island and its surroundings.
Looking over the lush greenery of the island and the water glistening in the sunshine, on a clear day you can see for over 25 miles over the low-country. A parasailing adventure is a great way to better understand the local geography and to get an overview of the surroundings that will give you a sense of the area and how it’s been shaped by natural forces and by its human inhabitants. During your parasailing trip, you will learn more about the island than you could ever have done in that time from the ground.
From high up in the sky, you may be able to understand a little more about the topography of Hilton Head. The island is sometimes described as a barrier island but technically it should be referred to as half sea island, half barrier island. The northern half of the island is a sea island that originated in the Pleistocene epoch while the southern end is a barrier island that is thought to have arrived much later, around the Holocene Epoch. These two sections are separated by the tidal marshlands of Broad creek, which are frequented by pleasure craft and a variety of bird life. A dynamic beach system characterises the Atlantic coast of the island, wetlands and forests characterise the interior of the island and the leeward side of the island, closest to the mainland, has mainly tidal marshland.
The breathtaking views of this varied land and sea-scape are one of the reasons why you should consider taking a parasailing trip from Hilton Head Island.
