    Default Watersports at CN

    Anyone know what watersports are included at CN?? Our travel agent told us parasailing and jet skis were included, but I don't see where those are even mentioned anywhere on their website.

    2 1/2 weeks to go

    No, parasailing and jet skis are not included with the package at CN. We were there in February and paid $50.00 for 30 minutes on a jet ski and my sister and her husband paid around $90.00 for the parasailing (not sure how long they were up, however).

    Parasailing and jet skis are not included, but waterskiing, windsurfers, hobie cats, scuba diving, snorkeling, paddleboards, etc are all included. Couples doesn't operate jet skis or parasailing,but it is available from 3rd party vendors on the beach.

    You need a better travel agent. Parasailing and Jet Skiing are NOT included with your reservation. You can do it though locals, but you pay through the nose for it. The water sports guys can set you up with one of the locals. Parasailing is very dangerous in Jamaica beacuse it's not regulated and Couples recomends NOT doing it. When we went in 2006, the harness was sturdy enough, but it was held to the boat with a skinny, frayed rope and a tiny knot on the harness. I was scared to death!

    Here is what's included:

    Your TA mis-informed you, as jet-ski and Parasailing are provided by non-Couples' vendors and are therefore not included.

    The bottom of this page lists a representative sample of what is included:

    Just noticed Paddle Boards is spelled incorrectly on the sign in the picture. I'll have to look at my pictures to see if was mispelled when I took my picture.

    Do I win a prize for seeing that?
