Motor Paragliding at the Okinawa Nakagusuku Village Yoshinoura Beach

An Okinawan born and raised in Okinawa introduces various beaches in Okinawa with underwater videos.

The Okinawan sea is not only for swimming. You can also enjoy the Okinawan sea from the sky. That is motor paragliding! You can enjoy the beautiful ocean of Okinawa from the sky by flying in the sky as if you were a bird. A motor is attached to the paraglider, so you can fly from the shore to the sky. When you fly in the sky, the beautiful ocean of Okinawa is right under your feet. You can enjoy such activities in Okinawa.

I arrived at the time I had pre-booked and greeted the staff, and they quickly began to get ready. I was careless and came wearing sandals, but even in that case, the staff lent me shoes and was very friendly and helpful. Leave your wallet, phone, and other valuables with the staff beforehand. If you drop them from the sky, there is nothing you can do.

Now please watch the video from the moment we took off. The sound of the motor paraglider is a bit loud, but the altitude is increasing rapidly. In no time at all, you will be at an altitude of 100 to 200 meters, and you will feel like a bird. Since it is a paraglider, you can feel the wind with your whole body.

You can see the ocean of Okinawa from about 200 meters above the ground. 200 meters above the ground is quite high. You really feel like a bird. So, when you are actually flying, you feel amazing rather than scary. It is a little regrettable that the weather is a little cloudy, but…

Finally, please watch the video of the landing. When the motor is stopped, the altitude naturally drops slowly. You can feel the natural wind over Okinawa, which you usually cannot feel. The professional instructor did a great job of capturing the natural wind and landing at the point where the staff was waiting for him.

This time I was flying with Blue Sky, a company that offers motor paragliding activities on the main island of Okinawa, providing a wide range of flying experiences for everyone from children as young as 3 years old to senior citizens. The instructors are professionals in the sky, and they have instructor certifications and licenses for Cessna, helicopter, and hang gliding. The staff is also friendly, courteous, and friendly. The fee is 9,000 yen. It may seem a bit expensive, but it is an experience that can only be had here. Not only can you swim, but you can also enjoy the Okinawan sea from the sky. If you come to Okinawa, you should definitely try it at least once. It will be an experience you will never forget.

I introduce the books that I actualy bought as reference. As for "Okinawa beach great 505", I often admire that he has studied only this much, and many beaches of Okinawa are introduced with photos. "Okinawa Snorkeling Guide" is featured 50 points carefully selected for beginners to enjoy. I also want to swim all seas. I will do my best to make it possible.
