$59 for a 2-Person Parasailing Ride ($118 Value)
Parasailing excursions begin at the Hawaii Kai Shopping Center, where experts debrief participants on the basics of the trip and how to fly through the air without vandalizing clouds. Up to six passengers board a KrantzKraft parasailing boat helmed by a US Coast Guard–licensed captain for an approximately one-hour trip. Strapped into harnesses, each pair then takes to the skies over Maunalua Bay, where for 8–10 minutes they glide high above Diamond Head, Koko Head, the Koolau Mountain Range, and other photogenic locales. Seabreeze encourages participants to wear swimsuits to take a dip in the tropical water.
Parasailing trips take place daily. For an extra fee, transportation is available upon request.
H2O Sports Hawaii
H2O Sports Hawaii's licensed adventure-seekers have been helping likeminded folks safely skim over the water's mirrored surface or dive deep below rolling waves since 1986. Their certified flight and scuba instructors dispense their knowledge as they prep guests for safe scuba diving and Jetlev jetpack flights, during which a jetpack propels guests up to 30 feet in the air using a high-powered pump that, like Poseidon's Harley, uses ocean water as fuel. They also outfit nautical voyagers with equipment and safety vests for jaunts on surfboards, parasails, jet skis, and high-speed tubes.
To further fulfill their mission of adventurous memory making, H2O's staff also runs their own digital media shop, where they snap photos of each watery experience using the media chips that accompany each guest. Their direct taxi service makes pesky logistics a breeze as their drivers shuttle guests between Waikiki hotels and picturesque shores.
