Definitely a once in a lifetime experience. The view is fantastic, and you can only go out of whale season. Parasailing is at Kaanapali. Do a little research to find a good vendor (We like UFO Parasailing). Soar Above Maui Hawaii and Kailua-Kona with UFO Parasail Hawaii! Their experienced crew and the latest lift-off and landing technology allows you to fly away in ease, comfort and safety. Parasailing is the perfect Hawaii activity for anyone – old, young, active, or physically challenged. I think they have been doing it about 25 years. By the way, parasailing is a lot safer these days with the boats that “winch” you down to the platform on the boat.
