Slowly at a deeper point, the inflatable boat is tipped pushing the passengers into the sea to gently float by. Within the 15 minutes of these jolly rides, you can explore and experience the enthralling waves in anew ways. For the safety of all passengers, swimmers and divers are roped in to supervise the activity at the beach. Lifejackets are mandatory while enjoying any water sport activity.
