Is the daredevil in you hankering for an adrenaline rush? Get behind the handlebars of a jet-ski, try parasailing or hop aboard the Crazy Jet wave-riding boat. After a brief safety tutorial, you'll get to live the dream. There are plenty of other watersports to choose from, too, including wakeboards, flyboards, banana boats and paddle surf.
If you fancy zooming along the coast, the jet-ski tour is a must-do excursion. We'll head north, taking in the rugged coastline of southern Gran Canaria. Or, ramp up the fun aboard the Crazy Jet boat – an adrenaline ride at sea. Designed to run on the waves, this super-fast boat makes spinning stops, skids and more. It's speed and adrenaline wrapped into one.
Alternatively, see the island from above in the harness of a parasail. Pulled by a motorboat, the experience of being attached to one is actually pretty serene. From your vantage point, you'll get bird's-eye views of the coast and the mainland beyond.
