Aloha, Hawaii! (Day 3, part 1)

Day 3 in Hawaii is parasailing time, brought to you by Orbitz. I wanted to do everything with my husband so we chose family parasail. It costs us USD66/person for around 8 minutes, 500ft above the sea, and round trip transportation from and to our hotel included. That is an amazing offer, considering we don’t have car, and to rent a car will cost us around USD85/day.

Booking the activities through Orbitz was really convenient. We got a call from the Local Expert™ Activity Specialist (expedia) the next day, asked for our hotel details and said that they will pick us up at 12pm. So, I spent the morning walking around the hotel, bought some sandwiches from ABC Store just 200ft away.

Cloudy day

That’s where we did our couple parasailing. It was a little bit cloudy, as usual, some rain came for only minutes, but we still did it!

We went to the parasail spot with 2 other couples, where there were 2 guides waiting for us. They both can speak Japanese since the tourists are mostly Japanese. No wonder they have Marukame Udon there. Anyway, they gave us 2 memory cards for our pictures and videos that can be bought later on. I don’t know if they allow us to bring our own GoPro, but they already put their GoPro on top of us. Since this day was our anniversary, we decided to buy both the pictures and videos. It costs us USD50. Is it too much? No, not in Hawaii :p

It was worth the money, however, since it was sooooo amazing, we kept laughing and screaming up there, one of the happiest moments of our lives.

So happy to be able to do this with my other half 

Our afternoon ended with only parasailing because we had to attend Waikiki Starlight Luau at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, to watch some traditional Polynesian dance and have dinner!

Note to remember: Book everything you want to do days ahead, especially with water sports, it is limited and based on the weather conditions. I did some mistakes by not doing that, that we needed to change plans. Lucky me, my husband is very good at this 🙂
