At Katara Beach, you'll find some awesome adrenaline-pumping activities that you may not have tried before like parasailing. It's a thrilling activity and a must-try for those who want to get a bird's eye view from above. You'll be strapped with a parachute and 'sail' in the sky as a motorboat pulls you along.

Have you ever tried kneeboarding, water skiing or jet skiing in Qatar's waters? If you haven't, maybe now's a good time to try something new and exciting. You can rent the equipment from the shack and head on out in the clear blue waters for some water-iffic fun!
That's not the end of the motorised water activities at Katara Beach! Why not go on a boat or a catamaran and make some memories. The boat can hold a maximum of six people and the catamaran can hold up to 10 people.
Every day from 4 pm to 10 pm at Gate 12, you can experience a boat ride in the famous Italian Gondola. Although you won't be cruising down the Venetian canals, be sure that a boat ride on the waters of Katara will be equally relaxing and adventurous.
