Big Island of Hawaii parasailing offers an exciting way to enjoy the waters off of Kona.
For excitement, choose the "touch and go." On the way down, instead of just reeling you onto the boat they let you linger awhile above the ocean surface - just before they dunk you. Wet, wild, and screaming at the top of your lungs, you emerge, no worse off for the refreshing plunge.
Too exciting for you? Let the captain know before you go up and you'll have a safe, dry return to the boat.
The Hawaiian parasail ride is taken in a harness, leaving your legs free to dangle. People take a while to decide what to do with their hands. At first hands are clenched but after a few minutes they realize it makes absolutely no difference whether they're holding on or not and they begin to relax and appreciate the whole experience.
The parasail flight lasts about ten minutes (ten minutes up there is longer than you think) and the flights go as high as 25 to 50 stories above the surface of the ocean. This varies depending on the wind and weather conditions and on the weight of the parasailer.
